**Activity 1 - Selecting your Familiar Product**

Activity (T1/A1/D3.1) Select a familiar product for analysis. Keep your selected product simple and choose one which you are familiar with or have personally used. Write down the name of the product Add an image of the product What is the Primary Function What are the Secondary Functions TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

5
**What is a Familiar Product?**

A familiar product is one that you use everyday. The product you choose should be simple. Too complex and it will be difficult to evaluate well. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

**TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department**

Design Outcome 3.1 • The candidate has suggested or identified which Design Factors are relevant to the task and the selected product. Activity (T1/A2/D3.1) Select factors which have influenced the design and manufacture of the product Check your factors are appropriate to your product choice. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/DO3.1)**

Function (this factor deals with how well the product does the job it was designed to do) 1. Consider the product’s goal. Consider the screwdriver. The goal of a screwdriver is pretty straight-forward: to drive screws. Although there’s certainly a lot of room for innovation in screwdriver design — there are screwdrivers with more ergonomic handles, ratchet-assemblies, magnetic tips, and exchangeable heads — ultimately everything in a screwdriver’s design is aimed towards the accomplishment of that single goal: driving screws. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Function 2. Consider who will be using it. Perhaps the single most important consideration in the design process — and the one most often forgotten — is the intended audience for the product. What works perfectly well for one user might be completely dysfunctional for another. And if the hoped-for users fall more into the second category than the first, you’ve got a problem. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Function 3. Is it clear how to use it? The best design, as often said, "speaks for itself". It is immediately clear — at least to its target audience(s) — what a product does and how to use it. Clarity is key to functional design. Probably one of the best-designed objects in the world is the ball. With minimal instruction even infants can use it! TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

10
**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Function 4. Is it engaging to your users? A user acquires engaging experiences when and after interacting with a product in a way that is frequent, intense, active, or vivid, etc. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

11
**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Performance 1.Is it fit for purpose? 2.Does it meet the needs of the target market? 3.How well is it designed and made? What is it supposed to do? TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

12
**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Market (1) Who are the existing customers for your product? What are their needs from the product? What makes the product stand out? Does your product appeal to different groups of people with different needs or motivations? TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

13
**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Market (2) Price Price too Low or too High or Just Right (Value for money) £20 £1000 ? Very expensive-designed for millionaires-very OTT- still a phone Cheap and functional-no bling-a simple phone TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/D3.1)**

Market (3) Product development TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

15
**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Aesthetics Elements of Aesthetics There are many different things that contribute to your overall perception of a product, and to your opinion as to whether it is aesthetically pleasing to you. VISION Colour Shape Pattern Line Texture Visual weight Balance Scale Movement TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

16
**Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)**

Ergonomics and Anthropometrics Definition of anthropometrics and ergonomics Anthropometrics is the comparative study of human body measurements and properties. Ergonomics is the science of making the work environment safer and more comfortable for workers using design and anthropometric data. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

Anthropometrics TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

19
**Activity 2 Plan a strategy for evaluating your product**

Select the best Design Factors to Evaluate your product against. Each Design Factor should be chosen from the six detailed previously. Choose the Design Factors that will best suit the product you have chosen. For Instance In evaluating the design of a lamp Function, Market, Performance and Aesthetics might be your chosen design factors. Anthropometrics and Ergonomics might be ignored. However the light switch may need to be considered under Anthropometrics. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

**TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department**

TASK1 – Design Outcome 3.2 The candidate has devised a detailed plan for evaluation and they have considered the methods they will use — these will be appropriate to the product Activity (T1/A3/D3.2) Plan a strategy for evaluating your product • The candidate has devised a plan for evaluation and they have considered the methods they will use — these will be, in the majority, appropriate to the product. • Once you have selected your design factors, begin to plan how you might evaluate your product against them. Be logical and ensure you can actually carry out the evaluations or tests. Keep personal safety and the safety of others in mind. Remember the purpose of an evaluation. Evaluation is a systematic determination of a subject's merit, worth and significance, using criteria governed by a set of standards TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

22
**Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2) Plan a strategy for evaluating your product 1**

Methods of Evaluating a Product 1. User Experience This is where several people use the product and give their opinions on how well it worked. Their opinions must be noted. This can be in the form of a questionnaire. User trials can be used to test for function, performance, market, aesthetics and ergonomics. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department

23
**Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2) Plan a strategy for evaluating your product 2**

User experience evaluation means investigating how a person feels about using a system (product, service, non-commercial item, or a combination of them). Detailed guidance for user experience evaluation is hard to give, since there are many different dimensions to consider when choosing the evaluation approach: Goal: Summative (score) or Formative (areas for improvement) Approach: Objective or Subjective Data: Quantitative or Qualitative Utility: Does the user perceive the functions in the system as useful and fit for the purpose? Usability: Does the user feel that it is easy and efficient to get things done with the system? Aesthetics: Does the user see the system as visually attractive? Does it feel pleasurable in hand? Identification: Can I identify myself with the product? Do I look good when using it? Stimulation: Does the system give me inspiration? Or wow experiences? Value: Is the system important to me? What is its value for me? TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department
