A0013A Product and production design

This course focuses on the interaction between product and production design, the material and design affect production methods. The course teaches an approach where market research, product development and manufacturing is done in parallel. Where possible the use of materials and production choices as part of the innovation process.

The course is a project course in which you are starting from an existing product to develop and improve it based on a user perspective, in terms of design, ergonomics, durability, and manufacturing. The course contains not so much new theory, but it's up to you to apply the theory, knowledge and methods from earlier courses. We will create the framework for what you will deliver, how you do it is up to you! The course is structured with 4 designreviews where you get criticism and comments on your design.

In the project, knowledge and methods from earlier courses are applied and developed.
