  • 1. Planning Introduction Method On tis slide, I have presented the plan formt In order to construct the Gantt Chart, I first listed the tasks needed to complete the project. Once I listed project in the form of a Gantt Chart. It is very each of the tasks, I was able to put them in to a logical order. I then estimated and assigned each with the important to plan your work well as it helps you to necessary time frame to complete each task. I then linked these times together and as a result, was able to recognize all the important stages, to allocate an estimate the total time needed to complete my project. Finally I had to regulate the planning to fit into the adequate amount of time to complete each stage, desired time specified. and keep your project up to date in all areas. Design Process Gantt Chart Planning means the act or process of drawing up plans or layouts for a project or enterprise and it Planning Est.

  • 2. Design Problem and Problem Analysis Introduction On this slide, I have presented my design problem and problem analysis. In order to identify the problem I have looked at existing problems in products already in the market. Throughout the product analysis I hope to identify the design specifications that must satisfy my product in order to be successful. Design problem Figure 2 When boiling an egg, I discovered a number of problems. First of all, one has to be careful that they do not place their hands too close to the water or saucepan – in order to avoid burning. Also, one must be careful not to crack the egg when placing it into the saucepan, as this would ruin the egg. One must also be careful that they do not overcook their egg, as this may cause the egg to crack or be too hard Figure 1 Figure 2 shows that it can be quite difficult to manage to balance an egg on a spoon when taking it out of the saucepan. This would be especially hard for an elderly person wishing to make themselves a boiled egg. As well as this, you also have to take each egg out one by one, which is not a very practical way of taking them all out. As well as this, it is very hard to be able to tell when an egg is cooked, but there are methods of doing so. Obviously, everyone knows that there is time, which can give a rough answer as to whether the egg has been cooked, by knowing how long it has been boiling for. However, another method is by taking the egg out, and watching for condensation around the egg, and if condensation does Figure 1 shows me about to try to spoon out a boiled egg from a occur, then it is cooked, if not, then it is still undercooked. It is very hard saucepan. This is a very awkward step when the water is boiling, as to do this and balance the egg on the spoon in the meantime. first of all, you have to be careful that you don’t burn yourself while Conclusion placing the spoon in the saucepan, as the saucepan is very hot. You Through this problem analysis I have developed a number of major also have to be careful that you don’t place your hand to close to the specifications that my product must satisfy these are as follows: boiling water, which adds to the difficulty. 1) It must be able to provide easy means of removing an egg from a It is also important that the egg is not overcooked – in which case, the saucepan. egg would crack when boiling. 2) It must also be able to and determine when an egg has boiled.

  • 3. Design Problem and Problem Analysis Introduction Figure 4 Figure 5 On this slide I have continued to analyse the design problem. Figure 3 Figure 5 shows an existing product already on the Figure 4 shows another existing product market. I found this image on the internet, and I already on the market. However, despite it found that yes, it does provide easy means of being similar to the product shown in Figure 5, it boiling your egg, however, I was able to think of a has a completely different function, in that it few flaws in the design. First of all, while all it Figure 3 shows me trying to place the egg into helps the user remove the eggs from the does to help the consumer to know how cooked an egg cup. This is made very awkward, as saucepan. This product solves the problem the egg is, it doesn’t help the user to remove the again, I am having to balance the egg on the shown in figure 1 and 2, of having to remove egg from the saucepan. The time that it takes to spoon, and in the meantime, place the egg in the egg from the saucepan, without touching take the egg out may be considered valuable by the egg cup without it falling on the floor. I have the water or saucepan. It solves this problem as some as they may wish for there egg to be to do so as once the egg is boiled, it is too hot when the consumer uses it, the first thing that cooked for a very specific amount of time. to handle, and I would burn myself if touched. they do is they place 1-3 eggs on the product, Conclusion and then they place the product into the saucepan, whilst holding the top of the product. Now that I have completed identifying a problem in This helps the user, as this way, the user different products, I can now list any other doesn’t need to get too close to either the specifications needed to be included in the making of saucepan or the boiling water. However, a my product. problem with this solution is that the part of the product from which the user is meant to grip it 1)It should be able to hold at least 2 - 3 eggs. from is very thin, and therefore would be quite 2)It must be able to provide an easy way of removing Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar people to get a firm hold of.

  • 4. Design Brief Introduction Figure 1 On this page, I have presented my Design Brief and Major Design Specifications. The design brief is the statement of intent which states the aim of the project. The design specifications are criteria which the product must satisfy. Brief To design and manufacture an egg holder that can support an egg whilst in a saucepan. The product must be able to hold the egg securely and be able to be removed with ease. It should also be able to hold at least two eggs. Major Design Specifications The product must:: • Be able to be easily removed from the saucepan once it has finished boiling, as otherwise it would defeat the object of why the product was made. • Be able to hold at least 3 eggs so that if for example the consumer wishes to boil 6 eggs, they don’t have to boil 2 eggs on 3 occasions. • Be able to be used in a range of different sized saucepans so that the consumer doesn’t have to have a specific sized saucepan when using the product. • Be able to keep the consumer safe from burning themselves on either the saucepan, or the boiling water. Figure 1 shows my drawings of my first initial ideas for my project. The drawing on the left hand side Conclusions shows the side view of my product. The drawing on the right hand side shows a 3D drawing of my initial I have now created my brief and my major idea, along with annotation giving an explanation of the drawing. The handle must be heat-proof, so that specifications and therefore will be able to look the consumer won’t burn their hand when they want to remove the egg from the saucepan. It also gives back and use this page to direct me through my an idea of how many eggs it will be able to fit inside it when in use. As well as this, it shows how the project. Next I will move onto my research plan. product will be able to attach itself to a saucepan. Finally, it explains that there would be small holes in the side of the product so that boiling water will be allowed in to the holder.

  • 6. Market Research Introduction Questionnaire On this slide, I have presented the questionnaire for my Market Research. Market Research looks specifically at what the consumer would desire from a product. One way of discovering this information is by using questionnaires and surveys. Marketing Research is research that gathers and analyzes information about the moving of good or services from producer to consumer. Method Producing and handing out a questionnaire is an individual practice. I will start my Market Research by carrying out a survey using a questionnaire. It will consist of questions on the current methods of boiling an egg. Those asked to participate in the questionnaire will be people who have experienced boiling an egg, and be those who regularly come across the problem. At the bottom of the questionnaire, I will leave a space in which the person filling in the questionnaire may sketch any of their own ideas concerning the aesthetics and function of the product. Conclusions On the following slides, I will present the results from the questionnaire using pie charts, graphs and any other methods that I deem necessary. It is hoped that through the analysis of the results, detailed design specifications will be formed. Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar Labelling Justify Text Alignment Highlighting

Figure 1 Figure 2 Conclusions Figure 1 shows a basket like product, with holes in that would simply aid the This design is certainly the more complex of the two. This first of user place and remove about 4 eggs into and out of a saucepan. all is because it would have a rack that rests on top of the saucepan which would rest on top of a saucepan whilst supporting about three eggs. Conclusions Now that I have a good idea about what people would want my product to look like, I can now start to think of things that I could include in my designs. There is not that much from either of these two design ideas that I would wish to incorporate with my final design. However, I will be considering some of the aspects of the design idea shown in figure 2. For example, I may consider having two parallel strips which would rest on the saucepan. Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar Labelling Justify Text Alignment Highlighting
  • 9. Market Research – Competing Products Introduction Figure 2 Figure 3 On this slide, I have presented my analysis of competing products already on the market. Analysing existing products is an important exercise as it will help me form design specifications as that may help focus my design ideas. Also it may allow me to identify design faults with products so that I can design a new improved product. Finally, it will also provide me with good design ideas and design elements that I may try to incorporate in my design. . Figure 1 Figure 2 sows a product that enables Figure 3 shows a sieve that would probably be found in any the consumer to boil an egg without kitchen. This product is very useful to have as it can be used to having to use a saucepan, which can be undergo many different functions. One of which is that it can be helpful in many ways. First of all, it is used to boil eggs. It could hold about 3-4 eggs, which again is helpful as usually, when one boils an not always large enough if the consumer needs to boil eggs for egg, waste is left on the inside of the a host of people. It is also not a very compact product, as its saucepan, which can be hard to long handle would take up quite a lot of precious space in one’s remove. So by using this product, the cupboard.

  • 10. Product Analysis Introduction Focus Area Question On this slide, I have presented a product analysis of a sieve. Product Analysis is vital for all designers because it helps you practise thinking about design and it helps develop your Materials What materials were used and why understanding of manufacturing methods. As well as this, it helps develops one’s use of different materials. It also gives you ideas for use in your own designs and encourages you to Manufacture How has the product been manufactured and why has it evaluate examples of good design and been made that way manufacture. Finally, it allows you to make better judgements about the products and services we buy and how they are marketed. Performance Looking at how well the product actually performs Figure 1 Ergonomics Looking at ease of use. How easy will it be for people to boil an egg Aesthetics Looking at colour, texture and shape Design improvements What features of the product could be improved This product is a sieve that would be found in Conclusions almost every normal kitchen. I chose to study this product as it is one kind of product that can I will now move on to analyse the products I have chosen, using the criteria as a guide.

  • 11. Product Analysis – Materials and Manufacture Figure 3 Introduction On this slide I will analyse the materials which the product has been made from. I will also look into why the materials were used and whether or not they are appropriate. I will also analyse the manufacturing process of the product and assess whether it is a suitable way to make my product. Figure 1 Figure 2 Manufacture of the product Conclusions To manufacture this product, two manufacturing process’ would have been used – the first one would have been presswork. Presswork would have been used so that there were holes made for water to be able to flow into the product. A pre-cut blank of stainless steel would have been profile cut, punched and crack raised in one power Analysis of Figures 1, 2 and 3 press operation. The next manufacturing process would have been CNC spinning, to The material used to make this product was stainless steel. This material form the actual shape of the product. The pre-cut blank would have been spun around a was used to make he product as first of all, it is very malleable, and can be mould, in order for it to form into the final shape desired by the manufacturers. formed into a very complex shape without fracturing. As well as this, it is a very tough material, and would be able to stay in one piece if it were to be Three different stages of the presswork manufacturing dropped, or if a large amount of pressure was exerted on it. Another thing process about stainless steel is that it doesn’t corrode, so acidic substances would not effect it in any way if they were to make contact with the product.` Two different stages of the CNC spinning process Conclusions On the next few slides I will be continuing with the product analysis section and will be looking at the aesthetics of the colander. Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar Labelling Justify Text Alignment Highlighting
  • 12. Product Analysis - Aesthetics Introduction On this slide I will be analysing the aesthetic qualities of my colander. Aesthetics are ultimately to do with how easy a product is on the human eye, and whether or not the product looks good. Essentials of aesthetics may include; color, shape, texture, form or other features of the product. Also on this slide I will analyse the finish of the product. I will identify the various finishing techniques used and also observe whether or not those techniques are efficient. Shape and form Figure 1 Figure2 The shape of the colander is bowl-shaped. This design is practical for boiling things with as the product has many small holes in it (with a diameter of approximately 4mm). However, it is quite difficult to clean the colander in some places. The edges of the product are curved so that the consumer is in no danger of being cut by the product. From an aesthetics point of view it is quite a good-looking product.. The handles of the colander are curved and rounded, however are not comfortable to use as the edge of the colander digs into ones hands when being held. Also the circular base provides stability when placed on a flat surface. Texture The texture of the colander is smooth, however, the small holes on the colander slightly affect the feel of it. However it is quite tricky to hold the colander by its handles, as if one has sweaty hands, then they may find it difficult to grasp a firm grip of it. Size The size of this colander means that it is slightly awkward to Conclusions store when not in use. This means that the consumer of the product must have an adequate amount of storage space From my product analysis, I have come up with a number of specifications: The egg holder must available to them, which in some cases would be a down side have small holes – to allow boiling water to enter within holder. There must be no sharp edges of the product. on the egg holder. The egg holder must be aesthetically pleasing in shape. Finally the product must be well finished, giving the product more durability and maintaining good aesthetics. Colour It has a shiny, reflective, silver colour, and has a fairly modern look about it Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar Labelling Justify Text Alignment Highlighting
  • 13. Ergonomics and Function Introduction Ergonomics The colander has been specifically shaped and modified so that once the user doesn’t need water within it, the On this slide I will analyse the function of the water drains to the bottom of the colander and through the small circular holes. However, in many cases, the colander, and as well as this, I will analyse the water does not drain through the holes at the base of the colander, as shown in Figure 2. It has also been ergonomics of the colander. I will try to discover made in the shape of a bowl so that it is easy to clean after use, as if the product had corners, then it would be any problems that one may come across when difficult to access them (Figure 1). Nevertheless, it does have some corners and they are very difficult to get in using the product. I will also try to discover how to with a standard washing-up brush (Figure 5). The handles on both sides of the colander are relatively the product fits in with the environment that it will difficult get a good, firm grip of, and from my experience of using it, they are not comfortable to hold (Figure 3). be in. I will therefore investigate why the colander has been shaped in the way it has. Figure 1 Figure 2 Function The function of the colander is quite easy to understand. It works by providing a large bowl- shaped structure in which the user may place whatever they wish inside. The small holes within the colander allow for water to flow in and out of the colander with little delay. The colander has two handles, however, when the colander is being used, it is not possible to use them both if the user wishes to hold something within the colander (Figure 4). The flat base attached to the bottom of the colander allows for it to be placed Figure 3 Figure 4 Figure 5 on a flat surface with tipping from side to side. Conclusions From my product analysis, I have come up with a number of specifications. The product must: 1) Not have many, if any corners. 2) Be easy to clean after use. 3) Be easy to hold, (with one hand if necessary). 4) Allow water to flow through it with ease.

  • 14. Mood Board Introduction On this slide I have presented my Mood Board. A Mood Board is a selection of images of products that relate to the problem in some way. These products may give oneself inspiration in the design of their product. Conclusions I based my decision when choosing which images that I wish to place on my mood board mainly on quality, shape and relativity to my product which I would like to design. I like the idea of kitchen utensils being made out of stainless steel, as I believe that it gives the product a more aesthetically pleasing look, and they always are made to a high quality finish. By doing this exercise, I have been able to improve my ideas as to what size the design must be, and the quality of the finish that I feel it should have.

  • 15. Initial Ideas – Buzz Page Introduction On this page, I have presented my Buzz page. In this stage of my project, a few of my classmates were asked to draw and render an initial idea of their own. These designs expand my view on the design of my product. Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3 Figure 4 Figure 5 Figure 6 Figure 8 Figure 7 Figure 9 Conclusion This page of designs enables me to get a wider perspective on possible design ideas for my product. This buzz page is the basis of ideas for the final product. More detailed designs will be drawn, which will be accompanied by CAD drawings. Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar Labelling Justify Text Alignment Highlighting
  • 16. Initial Idea 1 Introduction Figure 1 On this slide, I have presented my first initial idea, using my own drawing skills. My first initial idea is a shape similar to that of an up-side-down umbrella, with five slots capable of holding one egg each. It has a rubber handle, in order to prevent the user getting any burns, whilst its main body and shaft is made out of stainless steel. As you can see in my drawings, it would fit adequately in to a regular sized saucepan. Conclusions Pros: 1.It is a unique design 2.It would hold a sufficient amount of eggs for a family of five. 3.It has a modern, and slick look. 4.Due to it having a unique method of gripping it, when it gets lifted, the centre of gravity of the product is in the centre of it, so it doesn’t tip to the sides. Cons: 1.The eggs may get pushed out of the slots by bubbles when they are being boiled, and therefore defeat the object of the product. 2.The eggs may not boil at the same heat throughout them, as the product may insulate the bottom of them. 3.Water may not drain through the slots for the eggs.

  • 17. Initial Idea 1 (continued) Introduction Figure 2 Figure 4 On this slide I have continued in presenting my first initial idea. However, as you can see, I have done so using CAD, on the computer. Conclusions Pros: 1.It is a unique design 2.It would hold a sufficient amount of eggs for a family of five. 3.It has a modern, and slick look. 4.Due to it having a unique method of Figure 3 gripping it, when it gets lifted, the centre of gravity of the product is in the centre of it, so it doesn’t tip to the sides. Cons: 1.The eggs may get pushed out of the slots by bubbles when they are being boiled, and therefore defeat the object of the product. 2.The eggs may not boil at the same heat throughout them, as the product may insulate the bottom of them. 3.Water may not drain through the slots for the eggs.

  • 18. Initial Idea 2 Introduction Figure 1 On this slide, I have presented my second initial idea, also using my own drawing skills, and also using CAD. My second initial idea is a shape similar to that of my first initial idea, however, there were some features which I decided that I wished to vary slightly. For example, first of all, I was looking to use a different handle for my product, so I came up with a simple, regular- shaped handle as shown in some of the figures to the right.. I also wished to experiment with the way in which the product would hold the eggs, so, I decided to get rid of the slots for the eggs, and use a circular Conclusions rack instead. Pros: 1.It is a unique design 2.It would hold a sufficient amount of eggs for a family of five. 3.It has a modern, and slick look. Cons: 1.If the user is only boiling one or two eggs, then the product would not balance well. 2.The eggs may not boil at the same heat throughout them, as the product may insulate the bottom of them. 3.Water may not drain through the slots for the eggs.

  • 19. Initial Idea 2 (continued) Introduction Figure 1 Figure 3 On this slide I have continued presenting my second initial idea. However, as you can see, I have done so using CAD, on the computer. Figure 2 Conclusions Pros: 1.It is a unique design 2.It would hold a sufficient amount of eggs for a family of five. 3.It has a modern, and slick look. Cons: 1.If the user is only boiling one or two eggs, then the product would not balance well. 2.The eggs may not boil at the same heat throughout them, as the product may insulate the bottom of them. 3.Water may not drain through the slots for the eggs. Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar Labelling Justify Text Alignment Highlighting
  • 20. Initial Idea 3 Introduction Figure 1 On this slide, I have presented my third initial idea, also using my own drawing skills, and also using CAD. My third initial idea is an egg holder with a rack which would hold a maximum of four eggs, and a long z-shaped handle which would provide the user with sufficient leverage to lift the holder. When placed on a flat surface, the egg holder would be able to balance well without the aid of any support. The slots which would be used to hold the eggs would have very smooth edges, so that the eggs inside would be in no danger of cracking. This idea also has a rubber grip attached near the handle, which would allow the product to stay secure when in the saucepan. Conclusions Pros: 1. The egg holder would be able to balance on a flat surface without any support 2. The egg holder would be able to firmly attach itself to the rim of a wide range of sizes Cons: 1. It would not be able to fit comfortably in a saucepan with a diameter of less than 190mm. Content Depth of Understanding Spelling & Grammar Labelling Justify Text Alignment Highlighting
  • 21. Initial Idea 3 (continued) Introduction On this slide, I have presented my fourth initial idea. To do so, I used CAD, as shown below in figures 1,2,3 and 4. Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3 Figure 4 Conclusions Pros: 1. The egg holder would be able to balance on a flat surface without any support 2. The egg holder would be able to firmly attach itself to the rim of a wide range of sizes Cons: 1. It would not be able to fit comfortably in a saucepan with a diameter of less than 190mm.

  • 22. Modelling - Diary of Manufacture Introduction Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3 On this slide, I will be presenting my modelling for my first initial idea Modelling is the act of representing something, however it is usually done on a smaller scale. Modelling is important for many different reasons. It is important as by doing so, one has the opportunity to test for: •Function •Durability/strength •Weaknesses •Suitable materials Figure 1 shows the block of Figure 2 is an image of me when I Figure 3 shows the plainer that I •Proportion modelling plaster that I started off am measuring the correct used in order to cut my piece of •Aesthetics with. thickness that my modelling modelling plaster down to the •One can also take the model to a third party, so that plaster will need to be, for when it correct thickness. they could be given an opinion on the model from gets CNC machined. another perspective Figure 5 Figure 4 Figure 6 It also helps when suggesting any other possible improvements that could be made to the product.
