Resistant Materials
  • Products are all around us. New products are always being developed and some are totally new ideas. However the majority are existing products redesigned to suit current trends and fashions.
  • A design is a solution to a problem.
  • The problem is our starting point.
  • When a problem needs to be solved a Design Brief is needed.
  • A Design Brief gives the aim of a design problem. It states the kind of item which will be designed and made.
  • On the next slide are three different problems. You will need to choose one problem as your starting point.


  • The storage of small items continues to be a problem in many homes. Investigate.
  • Cut and paste onto page 4 of your course work, (Chosen problem).

Analysis of Brief

The following slides will show you what you need to do and how.

This page explains how, where and what you will need to do now you have a design brief.

  • I will collect images on existing products from magazines, catalogues, internet, writing letters to companies, photographs.
  • I will compile a questionnaire/survey to find other peoples views
  • I will use a computer/ graphs to show results
  • I will analyse various pieces of information to enable me to design a suitable product
  • Now write your own analysis of your brief.
examining the purpose of a product
Examining the purpose of a product
  • It is important now to find out why? And how? Your chosen product was used in the past or is used currently. You can then compare it to see how it is used today- is it just the same?
  • Break down your headings into WHO? WHAT? WHERE? HOW?Purpose- What it is for?
  • Form- What it is like? What it is made of?
  • Function- How does it do what it does?
identify and evaluate existing products
Identify and evaluate existing products
  • Find 4 good quality images of existing products of similar to your product. You now need to analyse these images:
  • Materials used to construct what type of material is it.
  • Theme, pattern, design has it.

  • Your view- like or dislike and why? Is it suitable for your target group?
  • What pre manufactured components are used.
  • How are they made.
questionnaire survey and results
Questionnaire/survey and results
  • This is the 2nd survey in this coursework.
  • Your product , shop and target group should have been identified from objective 1 survey.
  • This questionnaire identifies more specific design features such as what materials are used, the size, the price, colour, design, construction method etc.
  • Remember to evaluate your findings.
  • What does it show and how will this help you now?
letter to shops for research
Letter to Shops for research
  • Write a letter or email a company for information.
  • You are asking for relevant information on their products, brochures that may help you?
  • A copy of this letter can be added to your project with a note to say why you wrote and if they replied.
detailed specification
Detailed Specification
  • This is a detailed description of the product you are going to make. It will give details of materials, dimensions, colour,size etc and MUST be written as bullet points!

You should try and answer the following points:

  • Function of your product- What is the purpose of your product?
  • Performance- How and where is the product meant to work?
  • Appearance- Colour, shape, pattern, decoration, fixings.
  • Materials- suitable materials. Characteristics of materials.
  • Manufacture- it will be made in a batch of 50 (all of you will write this)
  • Cost- use your market research to suggest your cost
  • Target market- which group of people is your product aimed at?
  • Size- dimensions
  • Life in service- how long should your product last?
  • Safety- safe regulations you may need to look at?
  • Quality- You will use gigs, templates and or other means by which to assure quality and consistency of the production of your product.(all of you must write this)

Page 24


Objective Four Tasks to Complete

  • As a result of investigation, testing or trialling, make reasoned decisions about: materials; production methods; pre-manufactured standard components. 
  • Consider how materials are prepared for manufacture and how pre-manufactured standard components are used. 
  • By modeling, apply test procedures ensuring the product meets the original design brief and its fitness for purpose;
  • Consider when developing the product, the implications for quantity manufacture of:
  • Materials and components;
  • Tools, equipment and processes;
  • Critical dimensions and tolerances. 
  • Develop a control system to be used in the manufacture of their product.

Page 25

in objective 4 you need to
In Objective 4 you need to:
  • This objective is all about testing and trialling.
  • You need to produce samples of various parts of your product appropriateto what you are designing.

For example: Make a sample joints to show how you might construct your product.

  • Test these joints for strength. Which one will you use and why?
  • Test materials or find secondary information which tells you about materials and their uses.
  • Write this information in your own words, it is no use if you do not show your findings.
  • Pre-manufactured components. Which ones will you use and why.

Just remember to evaluate your decisions. What, when, where, how, why you are choosing these materials and methods.

in objective 4
In Objective 4
  • You will need to cover:

- materials: Wood, metal, plastic.

- Pre-manufactured Components (fixings, bolts, screws etc.)

- Processes (production methods) (Batch, one off, mass etc)

You must show evidence of 3D modelling your product.

Quality Control systems

  • Discuss what Control Systems are?
  • What is Quality Assurance?
  • You need to relate these 2 systems to your product- How and where will these checks come along in the making of your product?
material investigations
Material Investigations
  • You need to explore all the different kinds of materials and processes for you product.
  • All materials have different performance characteristics or properties.
  • Which material is most suitable?
  • What material have you chosen and why?
  • What are the characteristics of the materials.
end of objective 4 you must have
End of objective 4 you must have:
  • Final specification- this may have changed while you have been testing Materials and modelling.
  • You need to write a final specification now.
  • It must have exactly the correct information you require to make the product. ( in industry a worker would use a specification to assist the making so it has to be exact).
  • Final working drawing of your product with all dimensions and descriptions to complete the working drawing. This can be printed from your Pro-desktop design with all the dimension on the drawing. (If you an give this to someone and they can make your product without talking to you it is a good working drawing, if not do it again.)
