© Boardworks Ltd of 15 Learning objectives © Boardworks Ltd of 15 Learning objectives To be aware of a product designers role and responsibilities. To understand the importance of risk assessment and being health and safety conscious. To aim to design environmentally friendly products. To realize the impact that designing and manufacturing a product has on the environment. To understand how product obsolescence affects designers, manufacturers and consumers.
© Boardworks Ltd of 15 The role of a product designer can vary depending on the product they are developing or the organization they work for. Product designers work in conjunction with other roles: Which other roles are involved? Discuss the role of the designer in relation to them. The role of a product designer
© Boardworks Ltd of 15 Product designers have a responsibility to society because they design and manufacture items which can affect peoples lives in many ways. Designers should consider these questions: Will the product affect the environment in any way? Does the product encourage a negative behaviour pattern? Can the product be misused or abused by people? Will specific social or religious groups be offended by the product? Will the product cause physical or mental harm to the user group? Social awareness

Designers should think in terms of designing products which do not cause potential harm to their users. This is particularly relevant when designing toys.

© Boardworks Ltd of 15 Designers have a social responsibility to make sure that the environment is not damaged as a direct or an indirect result of products they develop. The rainforests are a good example of a natural resource that is under threat. They are being depleted at an alarming rate so that the trees can be used around the world for manufacturing and other purposes. Manufacturers are encouraged to use more softwoods, which can be replanted and grow at a quicker rate than hardwoods. Other materials such as MDF and chipboard are also better for the environment because they are made mainly from recycled materials. Are there any recycled alternatives to the materials you use?

© Boardworks Ltd of 15 How long would you expect each of these products to last before wearing out? Designing for the environment Product obsolescence refers to the lifespan of a product and the serviceable and maintainable parts within it. Have you ever noticed that some products fail just outside the warranty period? They have obsolescence built into them. Obsolescence is both positive and negative depending on how you view it. Some manufacturers make products that will last, in the hope that consumers will eventually come back to them for another product in the future; some design levels of obsolescence into their products so that specific parts wear out and need to be replaced. Usually, these parts are not covered under guarantee.
© Boardworks Ltd of 15 Designing for the environment Split into three groups. One group should be the designers, one should be the manufacturers and one the consumers. In your groups, discuss the implications of the following statements. After 20 minutes, discuss what your groups have talked about with the rest of the class. Consumers have to buy spare parts for the product after the initial purchase. The product keeps working for a long time. The product breaks down within the guarantee period. Spare parts and labour charges are expensive. The product breaks down beyond repair soon after the guarantee period ends.
