Other types of Data
Design Ideas
Parts list
After developing your ideas you should now develop a final solution..

Evaluate your design and justify how it meets each requirement of your specification.
Clearly justify and explain how this chosen design is better than the other designs you have created, for each aspect of your specification, e.g how does this design
better than the other designs?
how does this design meet the needs of your
target market
more successfully.
Produce a 3rd Angled Orthographic Projection of your final Design with 2D or 3D CAD to do this. Use the proper conventions and add detailed measurements. Remember to include a scale. Remember, from the Orthographic View, the final drawing, the parts list, and the plan, someone else should be able to manufacture your product.
Include parts lists explaining the material, sizes, and quantity of each part of your final product.
Clearly label each part so someone else know which component or part you are referring to.
Remember to check dimensions carefully and that your orthgoraphic and parts list match.
From your parts list and orthographic drawing anyone should be able to understand your design
At the end of the manufacturing process, produce a page that summmarises and clearly justifies all the main changes you made to your plan of manufacture and your final solution.

Use a questionnaire to gain data or information from your target market
that will help you decide on important aspects of your design. Use closed
questions and analyse the information you collect.
Collect other useful and relevant data from a variety of primary and secondary sources, both qualitative and quantitative data.
Summarise and clearly explain how each type of research helps you design your product
Remember to reference all your sources of information.
Use ICT to present the information you found in the form of graphs and charts so they are easy to understand. Analyse the data and explain how the information is relevant and will affect your design.
How does each product meet the needs of the Target Market?
Analyse real products as you can actual handle and use/Test real products.
Photograph and document all testing and using of real products,
Conclude on what you have found out from doing the product analysis
Measurements of the Human Body. Find measurements of different parts of the body that will help you design your product. Remember to consider your target market - age and gender! Explain how the measurements you collected are relevant will help you design your product
It is usually important to measure more than one person to draw conclusions on Anthropometric data as you are developing a product for a wide target market.
After you have gathered a range of research and relevant information, now produce a specification. This is a detailed list explaining what your product must do to be successful. Consider sizes, ergonomic considerations, function and purpose, aesthetic appearance, target market, design features, location of use, environmental issues, material choice, construction methods, finishing processes, etc, etc . Use these as sub headings in your specification
Use a range of techniques to produce ideas. Draw in 2D and 3D.
Use Card models or C.A.D to generate a wide range of creative ideas!
Remember to annotate your designs. Explain materials chosen, add sizes, explain construction methods. In short notes, describe how each design will attract the target market and how it functions. This helps other people and your teacher understand what you are drawing. Remember your ideas need to be communicated clearly
Now, look back at your specification and evaluate your ideas. How well do they meet the points you described in your specification? Explain how successfully they meet each point. If they dont meet each point, explain this and justify or explain why.
Show the product in 3D. Show close up details, exploded views, and annotate in detail.
Add colour and shading. Add measurements and explain materials chosen.
Now Evaluate your final product:
Testing of Final product (Photographic Evidence)
Analysis of Testing/data collected
Evaluation of the final Product against the specification requirements
Improvements/ Further modifications
Impact of Solution on Target Audience

After evaluating and testing your final product you should have identified weaknesses. Now describe further improvements you could make to your final product, to make it even better.

Plan and carry out a range of tests to help gauge how successful the product has been? nclude photographic evidence of this and show the results. Consider how you will test each aspect of the specification.
Include physical tests and/or feedback from target market and explain the strengths and weaknesses of your design based on the testing/ feedback you have received.
Why do they need a solution to this problem? How will this help them?
Explain why this is a problem and why you are doing this project? How did you come up with idea?
Include photos and some initial research, e.g a questionnaire with the user/s to justify and explain the design problem.
Use photos to help explain your design problem and secondary information to support what you are explaining.
Describe the most important functions/features you think this design must do/have to be successful
Explain who your Target Market is (Who is it for)
Describe (possibly with photos) the location where the product will be used
Use the summaries of your research to conclude the Design Brief.

Explain or justify why you feel this research will help you solve the problem you have identified?
Identify the different types of research and which is primary and secondary information.
You must collect both qualitative and quantitative data
Plan out your research in a table format as shown here
Sometimes annotating your designs as you develop them will help you think of new ideas!
You have just completed.......
Firstly, Use a Gantt chart to present an overview of your planned manufacturing,

On a weekly basis produce a plan, then record all changes to your original plan and design, as the manufacturing progresses. Include photos to show what you have done in that week. Clearly label and date your weekly plans. Plans should be detailed descriptions of all activities. Add times and highlight any heallth and safety issues, relevant to the tools and equipment. These plans should be detailed and someone else should be able to follow it week by week.

Identify what you have to research and produce a plan.
Prioritise which research is the most important.
Number and list in order of importance
How and where you are going to gather the necessary information or data?
After you have analysed and summarised all the research now produce a Design Brief.

Clearly identify a real need or problem for a group of users.
Empathise with the needs of others!
Carry out detailed product analysis of several similar existing real and relevant products.
Describe and justify methods of construction, materials, measurements, etc, etc.
What are the strengths and weaknesses of each design? How could they be improved?
Explain how you could use certain aspects in your own design ideas.
Each point must be clearly explained and justified to gain the high marks. Again this should be based on your relevant research.
Consider how you will test the success of each specification point when the product is completed.
outline how you will test teh success of each specification point
Working Drawing
Include detailed sketches, modified specification points, or annotated photos to explain further improvements.
Evaluation against
Design Specification
Now evaluate your final product against each point in your original specification. How successfully does your design meet each point?

If your design didn't meet any points explain why.
Always explain how each aspect your design could have met the specification more effectively.
Clearly justify all points - based on your testing and feedback
Don't just state your own opinion.
Impact on User
Finally, summarise and explain how successfully your product has solved the problem stated in the Design Problem. Has it had a positive impact on the user? Is the product useful/ helped the user in anyway? Be critical and explain the products strength and weaknesses. Are there any negative effects this solution could have? Include feedback from the user here to justify what you are saying. Again don't just state your own opinion.
Develop and improve your ideas as you progress. Always think about your original design specification as this should be the basis for all your ideas. All ideas should be creative but feasible and realistic. Annotate ideas to help explain how they work.
