1 The Design ProcessThe design process is achieve by following 10 stages.1-Identify the problem/product innovation2-Define the working criteria/goals3-Research and gather data4-Brainstorm / generate creative ideas5-Analyze potential solutions
2 The Design Process 6-Develop and test models 7-Make the decision continue6-Develop and test models7-Make the decision8-Communication and specify9-Implement and commercialize10-Perform post-implementation review and assessment
3 Stage -1: Identifying the problem/product innovation Engineers are problem solver: and the problems they solve are often identified as the specific needs and problems of customersExample:increased gas mileageSafety devices for kid, monitors, etc..
4 Stage 2: Define the working criteria and goals How much will it cost?Will it be difficult to produce?What will be the size, weight, strength?What will it look like?Will it be easy to use?Are there legal concerns?Will it be reliable?
5 Stage 2: Define the working criteria and goals ContinueWill it meet the EPA standard?Is this what the customer truly wanted?Will our customers want to purchase it?Will customers want to purchase this version instead of a competitor’s product?Is it feasible for our customer to buy it?
6 Stage 3: Research and gather data What information has been published about the problem?Is there a solution to the problem that already may be available?If the answer to the above is yes, who is producing it?What are the advantages of their solution?What are the disadvantages to their solution?
7 Stage 3: Research and gather data ContinueWhat is the cost?Is cost significant issue?What is the ratio of time compared to overall cost?Are there legal issues to consider?Are there environmental concerns which must be considered?
8 Stage 3: Research and gather data ContinueInformation can be obtainedLibrariesProfessional SocietyJournal, publications and newsletterNewspapers and magazinesMarket assessment surveys
9 Stage 3: Research and gather data ContinueGovernment publicationsPatent searches and listingsTechnical salespersons and their references catalogsProfessional experts including researchers, professors and other scientistsThe competition’s product (how they designed it? Disassemble their product and study it
10 Stage 4: Brainstorm / Generate creative ideas Creative problem solving is a major method of generating multiple ideas to a problem by a technique called brainstormingNo preliminary judgments are made about any member’s idea, and no negative comments are allowedThe goal here is to list as many ideas as possible
11 Stage 5: Analyze potential solutions Computer analysis techniqueAnalysis of compatibilityConsistency of testingEstimationEconomic analysisCommon senseAnalysis using basic engineering principles and laws
12 Stage 6: Develop and test models Mathematical modelsComputer modelsScale modelDiagrams or graphsDurabilityEase assembly
13 Stage 6: Develop and test models ContinueReliabilityStrengthEnvironmentalQuality consistencySafety
14 Stage 7: Make the decision Cost Point Available #1 #2Production DifficultySize, weight, strengthAppearanceConvenient to useSafetyLegal issuesReliability/DurabilityRecyclabilityCustomer Appeal
15 Stage 8:Communication and specify Communicate data and design for each specific solution and get input
16 Stage 9:Implement and commercialize Implement the best solutionApply methods of business to for profit
17 Stage 10:Perform post-implementation review and assessment Check if the final product is giving you what you actually wanted from feasibility and if the consumer like it, etc.
