Digital Industrial Design Curriculium

  1. 1. Noor Al-Doy Enrolled 1st Oct 2007 Supervisor: Dr. Mark Evans
  2. 2. 1 Research Aim: Investigate how digital design tools can be employed  during all stages of industrial design practice leading to the definition of a DID method and curriculum for undergraduate study
  3. 3. 2 Research Questions: Can existing digital tools be integrated to form a totally  DID method that can be implemented now? How should the existing and emerging digital tools be  integrated to form a total DID method that can be implemented within the next 5-10 years? How should the teaching and learning of the digital  industrial design method be integrated into a new digital industrial design curriculum?
  4. 4. 3 Summary of Achievements: Phase 1: Literature Review •Review of industrial design practice and tools •Review of emerging •Review of industrial design technologies education •Classifications of analogue •Chances for more digital Progress to Date and digital tools use •Study with industrial design graduates Phase 2: Development of a DID Methodology •Daft DID methodology •Case studies (reflective designing)
  5. 5. 4 Survey of Graduating Industrial/product design students: Aims: Identify the methods of design  modelling used Discover how easy it is for students to  use digital tools and the extent to which they are employed Highlight the areas of the  industrial/product design process that can be improved in the curriculum of the course Receive feedback on the potential to  employ completely digital techniques to design a product
  6. 6. 5 Survey of Graduating Industrial/product design students: Research Method: Dropping off questionnaire.  Scope: 104 industrial/product design  students graduating in 2008 and exhibiting at New Designers Exhibition.
  7. 7. 6 Findings Design Methods Used: Conventional Digital Sketches Sketches Sketch models Sketch models Appearance models Appearance models Renderings Renderings Control drawings Control drawings Testing Testing Prototypes Prototypes
  8. 8. 7 Findings Digital Design Tools Usage: Digital Design Tool % Feelings 60% 2D computer visualization software 54% 3D solid modelling CAD software 34% 3D surface modelling CAD software 28% Digitizing tablets ? 88% Haptic feedback devices ? 88% Virtually reality ? 46% Digital testing analysis ? 44% Computer numerical control machining 53% Rapid prototyping
  9. 9. 8 Average Digital Methods Usage: 75.4% 68.6% Specification Further 48.4% Refinement & Final Concept Preliminary Selection Refinement 41.8% Concept Generation
  10. 10. 9 Thoughts on Employing Digital Techniques: Majority of students do not believe that they will be able to  achieve the same outcome from their projects if the entire process was done using digital tools.  Majority of students do not believe that digital technologies have the potential to replace conventional workshops and the hands-on experience.
  11. 11. 10 Thoughts on Employing Digital Techniques: Majority of students disagree that their design practice will  improve if they used a completely digital process.  Majority of students disagree that it would be appropriate to have a totally digital industrial/product design course.
  12. 12. 11 Findings Reasons behind the Negative Feelings: Reasons: Hands-on model making is important Lack of sketch work (free hand sketching skill) Reduces free and creative thinking Design process to become too impersonal Limitation of design skills It is important to feel the product in its true form and texture Cost It is quicker to use a pen/pencil to generate ideas Becoming static behind a computer screen is not a good thing
