Prototype and test assignment g muniz

  1. 1. Prototype and Test Gerardo Muniz Design Thinking Workshop 1
  2. 2. 2 Problem Statement: Employers need the policies to participate in education process with Universities to get a successful School to Work transition. Selected Idea Incorporate activities at school according real needs of external organizations (employers). Two prototypes were defined, built and tested. The same employer interacted with both to receive more feedback about solution. The employer was from product development industry at Monterrey, Mexico, interested in the skills of Industrial Design students.
  3. 3. 3 Prototype 1 Description: A simple poster with significant design fields that impact the design of products and services, according global trends, was used to talk about selected solution with employer. 1. Design Management Northern Mexican Industry 2. User-centered Design 3. Sustainable Design of Products and Services 4. Diseño Virtual (Virtual Design) 3 Master Program in design and innovation IndustrialDesigner 5. Object / Accessory Design Reinforcement of Skills for Industrial Design Students Required by Northern Mexican Industry
  4. 4. 4 Test of Prototype 1 & Feedback from Employer Test and feedback: The test was taken at employer´s office. The prototype was an excellent media to receive feedback from employer. The main feedback was to create specialties for industrial design students with support of the company with resources and employees working together with teaches in the classroom. Working together with the employer for a couple of hours more, the required specialties were defined and are shown below. No important interest in Master programs was shown from employer. 2. User-Centered Design: Specialty to develop a user-centered perspective to provide through design a user’s total experience. The creative environment goes from the spatial, object to emotional communication with a deep understanding of human factors. 3. Sustainable Product & Service Design: Specialty to provide the right skills to develop new innovative and sustainable products and services with technical feasibility (through knowledge of materials and manufacture process), with good design, combining functionality, relevance and visual appeal. 1. Design Management: Specialty to bridge the disciplines of design and business management. Provide an executive education focused on the special needs of design teams in creative/ innovative industries.
  5. 5. 5 4. Virtual Design: Specialty to provide the computer-aided design skills needed to manage all required virtual designs of new products, services and experiences in the early stages of the development process. 5. Transportation: Specialty to provide creative and technical skills to design solutions of mobility or not-mobility of people in any environment in the large cities of Mexico.
  6. 6. 6 Prototype 2 & Test Description of prototype and test: A 3 hours class was proposed to the employer with a group of 30 industrial design students led by a industrial design teacher and a employee. The topic was the impact of technology and design in the development of new products. Ten low cost products were purchased and used in class, so students in teams performed a design and technology benchmark and then they could propose innovative ideas of new products and services according agreed specifications of teacher and employee. Employer attended the last hour of class.
  7. 7. 7 Students working in teams on class
  8. 8. 8 Feedback from Employer about prototype 2 I just want to mention one of the most interesting comments from employer after class: When can we start working together?
