Evaluate your product and present your findings 5. Evaluate whether your plans for evaluation were successful, useful and appropriate 6. Comment briefly on how the decisions made in designing and/or manufacturing the product will have affected the environment and society (Activity sheets have a green background) In this TASK(1) for Design Outcome 3 you will undertake these 6 ACTIVITIES TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 3

4 Activity 1 (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 Activity 1 - Selecting your Familiar Product TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 4

5 f What is a Familiar Product? TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 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. 5

6 Activity 2 (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. Design Outcome 3.1The candidate has suggested or identified which Design Factors are relevant to the task and the selected product. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 6

7 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. Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/DO3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 7

8 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. Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 8

9 Function 3. Is it clear how to use it? Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 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! 9

10 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. Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 10

11 Performance http://www.api-hk.com/en/products/home-improvement-a-tools/diy- product-performance-evaluationhttp://www.api-hk.com/en/products/home-improvement-a-tools/diy- product-performance-evaluation 1.Is it fit for purpose? 2.Does it meet the needs of the target market? 3.How well is it designed and made? http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/design/textiles/analysisevalua tionrev1.shtmlhttp://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/design/textiles/analysisevalua tionrev1.shtml http://wd40.com/faqs/ What is it supposed to do? Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 11

12 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? Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 12

13 Market (2) Price Price too Low or too High or Just Right (Value for money) Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department ? 13 Very expensive-designed for millionaires-very OTT- still a phone Cheap and functional-no bling-a simple phone £1000 £20

14 Market (3) Product development Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 14

15 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 Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 15

16 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. Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 16

17 Ergonomics Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 17

18 Anthropometrics Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1) TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 18

19 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. Activity 2 Plan a strategy for evaluating your product TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 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. 19

20 Use a Table similar the that shown below to indicate why you have chosen each design factor for your product. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department Activity 2 Select your Design Factors for evaluating your product and give your reasons 20

21 Activity 3 (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 – 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 TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department 21

22 Methods of Evaluating a Product http://www.technologystudent.com/designpro/eval1.htm 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 Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2) Plan a strategy for evaluating your product 1 22

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

24 Physical Testing Test your product to see that it works in the way that was intended. Record your results. Test for durability by repeating a simple drop test, decide on the height and repetitions of drops. Always inspect before and after the test and record your results. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2) Plan a strategy for evaluating your product 3 24

25 Information Retrieval Using any method available do research on how your chosen product should perform against the Design Factors you are using to evaluate your product. Record the information you find. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2) Plan a strategy for evaluating your product 4 25

26 Use a similar table as shown below to write down which methods you will use to evaluate each design factor. Quick notes. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2) Plan a strategy for evaluating your product 5 After completing the table on the left you must now explain exactly how you will evaluate each factor in more detail. You are now ready to begin your product evaluation and present your results. The next set of slides will explain how to do this. 26

27 Activity 4 Evaluate your product and present your findings It is important that you display the results of the evaluations clearly and neatly. This can be accomplished by using the methods listed below. Tables of results with comments Short reports Pie and Bar charts Display your results for each design factor. Some of the ways to do this are shown on the next two slides. TASK1 - Evaluate a Familiar Product- WHS Technology Department Activity 4 (T1/A4/D3.3) Evaluating the product and presenting the results, including justification of the evaluation methods used 27
