Redesigning lockers

  1. 1. REDESIGNING LOCKERS DesignAction Lab – Karan Khurana (Team “Young Leaders”)

  3. 3. Possible Solutions  Change the location of the lockers, in order to make more room for students in hallways etc.  Assuming a lack of horizontal space, make the lockers taller, allowing more space for students to store their belongings.  Add lockers to classrooms(homerooms) so that students can store their belongings in their classroom.
  4. 4. Costs  Costs would include, manufacturing new lockers.  Cost of setup.  Cost of maintenance.  Cost of removing current lockers.
  5. 5. Testing the solutions before implementation.  A prototype of the proposed schemes can be made in order to test which is the most efficient option.  By comparing models the most economically efficient plan can also be found resulting in a lower cost to the school
  6. 6. Stakeholders  The people affected by the new lockers would include:  Students  Teachers
  7. 7. Effect on Stakeholders  Do the new lockers suffice?  Are they big enough to comfortably fit all the materials the students put in them?  Are they easily accessible? i.e. easy to use and close to classrooms.  Keeping mind that the area the lockers will be in normally have activity, i.e. students moving around etc. In addition, students might be carrying things so easily accessible lockers are essential.
  8. 8. Funding  Due to an assumed large scale project, the school could benefit from purchasing economies of scale, resulting in lower average cost.  Angel investors might fund a large part of the project as education is a positive externality.  Schools funds.
  9. 9. Summary  The new lockers would be taller, allowing more space without pushing into ‘new areas’ as the lockers are being expanded vertically, not horizontally  They would be easily accessible and take into account that students would probably be carrying study materials while using them. The lockers would be designed with that in mind.  Funds for the project would come from angel investors, the school itself. A possible ‘discount’ could be obtained via purchasing economies of scale.
