As a Leader in Quality and Technology Development, we:
• Leaking at the tip of the pen.
The metal part of the tip
might be smaller than the
diameter of plastic tube.
• Metal tip stuck and blocked
the ink from flowing out.
• Rubber holder get loose.
• Pen hanger get broken
• Less ergonomic body shape.
The hand structure consists of bones called carpals, metacarpals and
phalanges. Together the carpals and metacarpals form a synovial joint
making gliding action possible. Gliding action is the process in which the
bones slide over one another allowing for a vast range of movement. Without
the metacarpals, the hand would be inadequate and virtually useless.
So we can make the assumption that Vinnie is holding his pen pretty damn
tight for his metacarpals to be damaged. His preternatural pen grip is
presumptively a result of the flood of anger and rage flowing through his
body when he writes his lyrics. Vinnie’s anger and hatred is portrayed and
characterized in many of his songs by his ferocious unorthodox rapping
Many people face the problem of having too many cleaning objects
The long arm on cleaning device used a lot of space in store room
They want to find a device that can solve their lack of space
Their cleaning tool also not properly placed in one place
There also no specific place to locate their cleaning object after
They forgot where they put their cleaning object if they want to use
Cleaning devices usually comes with a long
Long arm used as holder for the cleaning
device and then people use to hold of it during
As there are many type of cleaning device at
homes it causes the limited space to put their
Ceiling fan is a must have electrical appliances
for each home. Due to its high position, the
ceiling fan is hard to reach. After some times,
the ceiling fan will accumulate the dust that
has been in the air surrounding.
The fan blade will accumulate dust after some
The high position of the fan makes it hard for
the user to clean it
Long size of blade make the accumulated dust
Pringle is one of the most favorite crackers
among Malaysian. However, after the cracker has
been consumed, the user having a hard time to
reach the cracker at the bottom of the container.

Dustbin is a need of public. A dustbin is an important place to accommodate
unwanted substances. The needs of a dustbin are large space area, good hygiene
and others. There are certain improvements that can make to the existed design
of dustbin which are ergonomic aspect and the usage of technology in making a
more user friendly dustbin.
Ergonomic aspect – make it more ergonomic
in the design.
Manual close and open of the dustbin.
Exposed area for garbage- let the smell of the
garbage vaporized into the air surrounding.
The rigidity of the material used in making the
dustbin- not stable weight of the dustbin, make
it easy to be flipped by human or animal.
As a demonstration to student, we just brings
solutions for dustbin only.
Collection of a great deal of information.
Consideration between customers expectation and parameter set by
Highest-ranking EC’s from the HOQ are either constraint or design
variables which is used as decision making criteria.
The decision will be used to evaluate candidate design. (George &
1. Few values – use EC as a constraint.
2. Many values – use EC as metric to compare conceptual design.
Result from HOQ will guide to determine selection criteria for
Lowest ranking – not much critical compare to highest ranking.
Low ranking can be determined by anything most conducive in order
to achieve good design outcome.
FYI, our HOQ of engineering characteristics was based on Garvin’s
Eight Dimension of Quality.

In sum, product design can help us to
improve our life and make it much easier.
From the business point of view, this means
that many people will like the creative
product as long as it solves their problem and
provides to them what the other products do
