1 DT Coursework By D. Henwood

2 Check regularly that you are completing the things on this page
Coursework Checklist Section Problem and analysis (with Photos/drawings) Development: Concept Modelling Confirmation of the problem: Questionnaire or case study results. Development: Possible materials Research Plan: what areas do you need to research? Brief/initial Specification Development: Branding Questionnaires/letters/ s etc to gather information. Analysis of this information. Development: labelling/packaging Research: Project Specific Research, e.g. possible power sources/input or output devices/hygiene etc. Development: Final design Human Factors/User Profiles Planning: Working Drawings/Cutting List/Manufacturing flowchart Existing Products/Case Studies/Materials/Summary and Conclusions from Research Practical: Make the Product! Final Specification using Research Make the Packaging! Initial ideas: sketches and notes User testing in context (including recommended modifications) Evaluation of initial Ideas Evaluation Development: variations/modifications Adaptation for commercial production. Check regularly that you are completing the things on this page

3 Problem DT Coursework Where does Describe the problem
the problem occur? Who is affected by the problem? What sort of thing could I design to solve the problem? How does the problem affect them? DT Coursework

4 Problem Confirmation DT Coursework
This is where you show the results of your questionnaire. Graph of your results Graph of your results Explain what the results mean. Graph of your results Graph of your results Explain what the results mean. Explain how your questionnaire has lead you to the conclusion that there is a valid problem to solve. Explain what the results mean. Explain what the results mean. DT Coursework

5 Research Plan DT Coursework Where can I find this out?
This is where you tell the examiner what it is you are going to research (it is not your actual research!) It is in three sections: Where can I find this out? What do you need to know? What I intend to do with the information Why do I need to know this? DT Coursework

6 User Profile DT Coursework
Write a paragraph describing the people you are expecting to want to buy your product Include photos of your user group and their lifestyle DT Coursework

7 Existing Products DT Coursework
You need to include analysis of at least 4 existing products. Include a photo of the product and analyse it using the sheet at: R:\Design Technology\Year 10\Product Analysis DT Coursework

8 Other Research DT Coursework Materials Manufacturing Techniques
This covers several pages and includes: Materials Human Factors Manufacturing Techniques Materials What to make it from Manufacturing Techniques Product-Specific Research How to make it Stuff you need to know about your project Human Factors To help you with this section there is a PowerPoint presentation at: (Click on the hyperlink and choose “open”) DT Coursework

9 Specification Make a list of at least ten things about your product that would make it a successful solution to your problem. Include: Things your product has to be able to do Things your product needs to achieve. How you product will meet the needs of the user. Explain each of your points in detail, including any necessary measurements, things you will need to find out and things your materials will have to be able to do. DT Coursework

10 Initial Ideas DT Coursework You must show the examiner
a range of initial ideas – this means there must be at least 9 and that they must all be different. DT Coursework

11 Evaluation of Ideas DT Coursework
Add a cross or a tick to indicate whether you are going to develop the idea On this page you write a short comment on each idea saying whether you like it or not, why, and if your are considering developing it further. DT Coursework

12 Development - Variations
Take your best three ideas and (on separate pages) sketch variations, including: Changes in the shape and size of components Front, back, side and top views Suggestions on how it will fit together Suggestions for materials and colour schemes. DT Coursework

13 Development - Detailed Chosen Idea 1
Again, this takes several pages: 1. Do a construction drawing of your chosen design – this shows all the parts drawn out to scale. 2. Modelling: include photos of any models you made and add your notes on how this helped you modify your design. DT Coursework

14 Development - Detailed Chosen Idea 2
Again, this takes several pages: 3. Tests and experiments: show what tests you did and how you did them. 4. Use SketchUp to present your final design DT Coursework

15 Manufacturing Flowchart
You need to use a flowchart to explain how to make your product. There are different, specific symbols for each stage of the process. Some of these are shown below. TERMINATOR represents start, restart, stop. DECISION represents a choice which can lead to another pathway PROCESS Represents a particular instruction or action INPUT/OUTPUT represents additions to or removals from the particular process. The symbols are linked together by arrows which indicate the correct sequence of events. The aim should be to make the flowchart as clear and simple as possible. This example shows how production plan for one component may look. - Always start with the correct symbol. - Show each stage in a rectangle using clear easy to follow instructions - You will need to undertake some quality checks, what will they be? Quality checks require a decision so a diamond shape is used. - You will need to build in feedback loops if something is found to be wrong. This could take you back one or several stages so that some process can be adjusted before going forward again. STOP START DT Coursework

16 Commercial Production
A company would not make your product in the same way that you have done. You have made a PROTOTYPE – i.e. the first example of the product. Commercial production must be done on a larger scale in order to be profitable. On this page you need to consider whether you product would be best made using Batch or Mass production. You need to: Explain what each means Explain which one you would use Show how you would modify your design in order that it would be more suitable for commercial production. Warning: You MUST do this page – there are lots of marks that can only be given for a completed commercial production page. DT Coursework

17 Evaluation DT Coursework
You should test your product against the original specification. Check your prototype against each of the criteria you originally listed. Was the design specification correct? Did you need to revise this as the work progressed? A simple chart might help. An evaluation should include a review of your final product using your judgement to assess its success. Asking other people’s opinions is an important part of this process. A good place to start would be to answer the following questions: - do you find the product easy to use? - does it function in the way it was intended to? - What do you think about the style of the product? - Do you like or dislike any of the features? Explain why. - Would you purchase this product and if so what would you expect to pay for such a product? What are the main advantages or disadvantages compared to similar products? Include photographs of your product being used by your target user group. Make sure you include their opinions. DT Coursework
