  • 1.1.1 Materials and applications
    • The ability to choose the best material for the product manufacture is an essential skill for both manufacturer and designer
      • Different materials work in different ways so its important to know their properties
    • Stock forms can affect the cost of the material
      • The stock form is the standard sizes in which materials are available
      • Allows for standardisation for is designers are designing products to be manufactured in a different part of the world
      • Advantages
        • Uniformity of material sizes across the countries
        • The material form can be transported more easily one converted to stock form
        • Standard stock sizes are less expensive than specialist sizes because they are processed in large quantities
    • Material costs directly influence product manufacture
      • Polymers considered cheap
        • Traditional polymers come from crude oil making them more expensive
  • Material classification and properties are essential
    • Also their aesthetic, cost, manufacture and disposal
