Anthropometrics
Anthropometrics is the study of the sizes of people in relation to products. For example, chairs used in schools need to be suitable for the average size of pupils in the schools.
1 of 21
Ergonomics
Ergonomics is the relationship between people and the products which they use. Ergonomics is considered with working out measurements that will help the designer design the product
2 of 21
Aesthetics
Aesthetics is the look of the product . For example the colour or the quality of the finish.
3 of 21
Product Design Cycle
Identify Phase , Design Phase, Optimise Phase , Validate Phase
4 of 21
Design Specification
A designer must make sure products meet the design specification. The design specification should be directly influenced by the analysis of research. This will ensure quality of design and that the end product is fit for purpose.
5 of 21
Modern / Smart Materials
Modern materials are developed through the invention of new or improved processes.
6 of 21
DFMA
DFMA stands for Design for Manufacture and Assembly. DFMA is used to reduce manufacturing and assembly costs, and to quantify improvements
7 of 21
Scales Of Production
Mass Production , Batch Production and One Off production
8 of 21
Product Life Cycle (1)
Product Life Cycle is when a designer plans every stage of making a product so that the product is as environmentally as possible
9 of 21
Product Life Cycle (2)
Extracting of Raw Materials , Material Processing , Stages of Manufacturing , Assembly , Distribution to customer , Use by customer , End of life recycling
10 of 21
6RS
Reduce , Reuse , Repair , Refuse , Rethink , Recycle
11 of 21
Standard components
A standard component is usually an individual part or component, manufactured in thousands or millions, to the same specification .For example is a steel bolt.
12 of 21
Tolerance
Tolerance is the permissible limit or limits of a product
13 of 21
Sustainibility
Sustainibilty is how long a product can be used for a period oftime and this is important for designers as they think about the effect of their product on the enviroment
14 of 21
British Standards Institution (BSI)
In the UK standards are regulated by the (BSI) . Products which meet the standards are marked with the kitemark
15 of 21
European Union
There are also separated standards for the European Union. If a product meets these standards it can be given a 'CE' mark
16 of 21
Market Pull
Market Pull is when product ideas are produced in response to the market forces
17 of 21
Technology Push
Technology Push is when products are redesigned because of the development in technology and changes in materials
18 of 21
Patents
A patent for an invention is granted by government to the inventor, giving the inventor the right to stop others, for a limited period, from making, using or selling the invention without their permission.
19 of 21
Consumer Rights & Legislation
The design of new products must consider any breaches in the current regulations. Some products need to pass safety test before they can be sold.
20 of 21
Hazardous & Toxic Materials
Hazardous & Toxic Materials are harmful to humans and the environment . For example chemicals , batteries or hazardous waste containers
