Question 1

- To understand what is this comprise
- How does this works

Question 2
Core element in product design
the entire package of elements defines the product/service.

Identified Issues:
'coming to the end of its life'
considerable maintenance cost
no longer attract visitors
behind safety standards
four options:
Remove it !
Feasibility- feasible option, but possible technical problem: the fund, manpower and skills .
Acceptability- acceptable option, yet may be giving up potential profits.
Vulnerability- safe opti
, however, it is hig
hly steady and
predictable: les

Chatsworth - the adventure playground decision
Family Playground
What comprise of concept package and process for the adventure playground?
A. remove it
B. do nothing
C. replace with similar
D. replace with substantially better
B. Do nothing
Feasibility- the most feasible option, the business can achieve this with its current resources.
Acceptability- not acceptable, cost increasing amount of maintenance every year.
Vulnerability- not acceptable, is not financially
wise at

C. Replace with similar
Feasibility- moderate option.
Acceptability-moderate option, bring new hardware in compliance with safety standards.
Vulnerability- High option, the risk for this choice is too high.

D. Replace with substantially better !
Feasibility- low option, From the perspectives of costs and budgeting, this is not attractive at all.
Acceptability- high option, bring a 'state-of-the-art' playground and improved farmyard water system & growth in visitor number.
Vulnerability- high option, The 'very conservative' estimation about recovering the investment is 7 years.

The ultimate choice is option D that spend $250,000 to build the best, however, this choice exists uncertainty;
The safest option is option A - remove it,because it does not lose money.
My advice is the choice should depend on whether the company want to make money or be secure.
the manager can use a more reliable way to estimate the profit, not only depends on imagination without any references.

Question 3
... the concept of interactive design means for a services in the adventure playground ...
Issue 1:
"... the little shuffles or the great leaps forward", but “few major changes” have not been found until 25 years later ...
What the few major changes are ?
What do we find ?
The facilities aging
Maintenance costs increasing each year
Why did the situation happen ?
there is no simultaneous work on each stage.

Employ simultaneous development where design decisions are taken as early as they can be, without necessarily waiting for a whole design phase to be completed.

substantially better”

The choosing option process reflects the advantages of early conflict resolution have been better embodied in whole phase.
The early conflict resolution, which happens to the design team managers, make a contribution to reduce contentious decisions to be solved in the early design phase, therefore avoids to cause confusion if disagree emerge in later phase.

Issue 3
Using project-based organizational structures in the process of developing concepts through to market.
There is a focused and coherent teamwork between companies and Chatsworth’s designers.
Chatsworth and the company would have equal part to play an important role in making decisions, which reducing the product’s overall time to marketing.
