  • 1. The technological proccess Lesson 1 1st term
  • 2. Review • Technology is a body of knowlegde, skills and reources we coordinately use to solve human needs • In technology, a specific methodology is followed: The proyects’ method • We find Technology in any artificial object • The technological activity often yields a product
  • 3. Analisis of an object • Shape: the shape of an object has to do with its function, resistance and stability. • Functional analysis: The diffent parts of an object have different functions and so they are made out of different materials and placed in different places trough the object. • Technical analysis: It is the analysis of the object’s properties: resistance, efficiency, how it works… • Economical analysis: we must also consider the object from its economical point of view: initial price, energy consumption, maintenance, how many years it lasts…
  • 4. Documents of a project • • • • • • • Specification: Document where the client describes the required product or service Quotes/proposal: are the offer from the supplier. Quotes would be the price and properties maching the requirements. Proposals are variations over the specification Plan: is the document wich registers the neccessary tasks (ordered, duration, technicians) and resources (materials, tools) to build the product Design: Includes plans/drawings. It must be functional (match client’s needs), economical, durable and respect enviroment Bibliography: Indicates the sources of information used to design and build the object Manual: document where the supplier explains how the product works: step by steps instructions to assemble, safety operation, mantainance Receipt: Is the document where the supplier specificates the price that the customer has to pay, including taxes.
  • 5. Recycling • Recycling tries first to avoid unnecessary waste. • Reuse and recycle have always existed. Recycled or reused matherias where those valuable • Recycling has many enviromental advantages: • Reduces energy consumption • Reduces the demand for natural resources • Reduces the need for landfill sites
  • 6. Recycling symbols • The chance of recycling a product depends on the materials it is made of. • To help recycling an object, the best thing is marking its different parts with an appropiate symbol, so tat the user knows how to recycle them • The mobius loop is the general symbol which indicates that a product can (must) be recycled. It is not accurate, because it doesn´t indicate where or how to recycle it.
  • 7. The working environment: health and safety Severity prob 2 1 abili 2 4 2 ty 1 2 1 • • • The health and safety instructions are intended to ensure a safe working environment for everybody (workers, users…). A risk is the combination of the probability that something happens and how harmful it would be if it happens. To evaluate risks, we made a table giving a value to the probability and the harm it causes. Then, we multiply those values
  • 8. Sales • • • • • • In • • The rule of the four p’s (core of marketing theory) says that: if the rigth product is in the rigth place at the rigth price, it can be sold. Promotion is optional Fixed cost don´t depend on the amount of products made Variable costs: depend on the amount of products made. Laws of supply and demand: Suppliers produce products when costumers demand them: A) If demand is higher than supply the product’s price rises B) If demand is lower than supply the product’s price decreases the long term supply often equals demand because If the prices rise, the demand decreases or supply increases If prices drope, demand increases or supply decreases
