The design process

The Design Process

By Gamal Prather


The design process1

THE DESIGN PROCESS

  • The design process is an engineering activity that turns a concept into reality.

  • The concept is a solution to a specific problem or a perceived need.


The design process2

THE DESIGN PROCESS

  • The process from concept to solution is not random.

    • It is a logical sequence of steps to develop the best solution to a specific problem.


The design process3

THE DESIGN PROCESS

  • The design process is not a one-way street ending in the finished product.


The design process4

THE DESIGN PROCESS

  • It is a series of stages and check-points where each step in this process can be reviewed and analyzed.

  • Modifications or refinements can be made to the concept.


7 stages in the design process

7 STAGES IN THE DESIGN PROCESS

  • Problem Identification

  • Conceptualization

  • Refinement of Preliminary Ideas

  • Design Analysis

  • Development and Implementation

  • Optimization

  • Presentation


Stage 1 identify problems

STAGE 1: IDENTIFY PROBLEMS

  • Market research

  • Design Brief

  • Identification constraints

  • A CRITICAL stage


Stage 2 develop concepts

STAGE 2: DEVELOP CONCEPTS

Concept sketches of cycling shoes

  • Ideation

    • Brainstorming (words)

    • Sketching (images)

  • Data collection

  • Information resources


Stage 3 refine ideas

STAGE 3: REFINE IDEAS

  • Identification of workable, realistic solutions

  • Develop detailed, annotated sketches

  • Graphical analysis of possible solutions


Stage 4 design analysis

STAGE 4: DESIGN ANALYSIS

  • Compare alternatives and specifications

  • Create a Decision Matrix

  • Generate alternate solutions

  • Reduce # of potential solutions


A design matrix

A Design Matrix

  • Using a matrix, select a workable solution


Stage 5 development implementation

STAGE 5: DEVELOPMENT & IMPLEMENTATION

  • Preliminary documentation of the final design

    • Engineering drawings (ie. Multi-view drawings)

  • Prototyping of the selected design

  • Testing and Analysis of prototype


Stage 6 optimize

STAGE 6: OPTIMIZE

  • Reassess design specifications

  • Implement modifications

  • Update 3D models and engineering drawings


Stage 7 presentation

STAGE 7: PRESENTATION

  • Oral report

  • Written report

  • Visual aids

    • Models

    • Powerpoint Slideshow

    • Videos
