Industrial Design

Industrial Design differs from conventional design engineering in terms of (largely) aesthetic and ergonomic requirements, coupled with a need for effective marketing and production to make a product a success.  This project will involve the design of a unique device to fit into an existing but immature product range with a strong identity.  There will be an expectation of research into Industrial Design history and methods, alongside the development of a battery powered Personal Vaper (PV) incorporating new technology, attractive aesthetics and comfortable ergonomics.

Introduction

The Project Specification is a description of what you are working to achieve, and a Plan is the schedule proposed to achieve it. By establishing a good Specification and Plan at the start of your work, your progress on the module will be more focused. As the 'end' is defined first, you will be able to apply Project Management techniques to ensure your effort progresses the work toward your goals. The first seminar session is based on the 'Project Specification and Planning' notes. The 'Project Guide' also provides useful information to support your work. The Specification and Plan must be readable, unambiguous and complete. They will form the basis of assessment of progress in your final report.

Assignment

Project Specification: Write a specification for your project, following the support given in the seminar sessions, and from your Project Tutor. The Specification should be no longer than two sides of A4, and be word processed in Arial font at size 12. It must be signed and dated by you.

Project Plan: Produce a plan for your project as you have described in the specification. Take account of the University Academic Calendar, project module deadlines, and other time constraints from your Tutor, collaborating company, use of resources, etc. Use Microsoft Project to communicate your plan.

Assessment

The Specification and Plan will be assessed using the criteria attached. The assessment is Formative, and does not contribute marks to the module.
