AbstractThe course introduces students to the product development process. In a team, you will explore the early phases of conceptual development and product design, from ideation and concept generation through to hands-on prototyping. This is an opportunity to gain product development experience and improve your skills in prototyping and presenting your product ideas. The project topic changes each year.
ObjectiveThe course introduces you to the product development process and methods in engineering design for: product planning, user-centered design, creating product specifications, ideation including concept generation and selection methods, material selection methods and prototyping. Further topics include design for manufacture and design for additive manufacture. You will actively apply the process and methods learned throughout the semester in a team on a product development project including prototyping.
ContentWeekly topics accompanying the product development project include:
1 Introduction to Product Development and Engineering Design
2 Product Planning and Social-Economic-Technology (SET) Factors
3 User-Centered Design and Product Specifications
4 Concept Generation and Selection Methods
5 System Design and Embodiment Design
6 Prototyping and Prototype Planning
7 Material Selection in Engineering Design
8 Design for Manufacture and Design for Additive Manufacture
