Task 1 evaluate a product

  1. 1. Assessment Task 1Evaluate a TimepieceProduct EvaluationYou are required to undertake a product evaluation andcreate a report which demonstrates your skills in theevaluation of a familiar product against identified andimportant design factors.TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  2. 2. 1. Select a timepiece product for analysis2. Select factors which have influenced the designand manufacture of the product3. Plan a strategy for evaluating your product4. Evaluate your product and present your findings5. Evaluate whether your plans for evaluation weresuccessful, useful and appropriate6. Comment briefly on how the decisions made indesigning and/or manufacturing the product willhave affected the environment and societyIn this assessment you will undertakethese 6 ACTIVITIES2TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  3. 3. • Select a timepiece for analysis.• Keep your selected product simple and chooseone which you are familiar with or have personallyused.• Write down the name of the product• Add an image of the product• What is the Primary Function• What are the Secondary FunctionsActivity 1 - Selecting your Familiar Product3TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  4. 4. What is a Timepiece?4The product you chooseshould be simple.Toocomplex and it will bedifficult to evaluatewell.TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  5. 5. Activity 2 (T1/A2/D3.1)• Select factors which have influenced the design andmanufacture of the product• Check your factors are appropriate to your productchoice.• The candidate has suggested or identifiedwhich Design Factors are relevant to thetask and the selected product.5TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  6. 6. Function (this factor deals with how well theproduct does the job it was designed to do)1. Consider the product’s goal.• Consider the screwdriver. The goal of a screwdriver is pretty straight-forward: todrive screws. Although there’s certainly a lot of room for innovation in screwdriverdesign — there are screwdrivers with more ergonomic handles, ratchet-assemblies, magnetic tips, and exchangeable heads — ultimately everything in ascrewdriver’s design is aimed towards the accomplishment of that single goal:driving screws.Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/DO3.1)6TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  7. 7. Function• 2. Consider who will be using it.Perhaps the single most important consideration in the design process — and theone most often forgotten — is the intended audience for the product. What worksperfectly well for one user might be completely dysfunctional for another. And ifthe hoped-for users fall more into the second category than the first, you’ve got aproblem.Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)7TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  8. 8. Function• 3. Is it clear how to use it?Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)The best design, as often said, "speaksfor itself". It is immediately clear — atleast to its target audience(s) — what aproduct does and how to use it. Clarityis key to functional design. Probablyone of the best-designed objects in theworld is the ball.With minimalinstruction even infants can use it!8TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  9. 9. Function• 4. Is it engaging to your users?• A user acquires engaging experiences when andafter interacting with a product in a way that isfrequent, intense, active, or vivid, etc.Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)9TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  10. 10. Performance• http://www.api-hk.com/en/products/home-improvement-a-tools/diy-product-performance-evaluation• 1.Is it fit for purpose?• 2.Does it meet the needs of the target market?• 3.How well is it designed and made?• http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/design/textiles/analysisevaluationrev1.shtml• http://wd40.com/faqs/• What is it supposed to do?Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)10TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  11. 11. Market (1)• Who are the existing customers for your product?• What are their needs from the product?• What makes the product stand out?• Does your product appeal to different groupsof people with different needs or motivations?Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)11TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM

  14. 14. Aesthetics• Elements of AestheticsThere are many different things that contribute to your overall perception of a product, and toyour opinion as to whether it is aesthetically pleasing to you.• VISION• Colour• Shape• Pattern• Line• Texture• Visual weight• Balance• Scale• MovementDesign Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)14TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  15. 15. Ergonomics and AnthropometricsDefinition of anthropometrics and ergonomics• Anthropometrics is the comparative study of humanbody measurements and properties.• Ergonomics is the science of making the workenvironment safer and more comfortable for workersusing design and anthropometric data.Design Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM 15

  17. 17. AnthropometricsDesign Factors to consider (T1/A2/ D3.1)17TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  18. 18. TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM• Select the best Design Factors to Evaluate yourproduct against.• Each Design Factor should be chosen from the sixdetailed previously.• Choose the Design Factors that will best suit theproduct you have chosen.For InstanceIn evaluating the design of a lamp Function, Market, Performanceand Aesthetics might be your chosen design factors.Anthropometrics and Ergonomics might be ignored. However thelight switch may need to be considered under Anthropometrics.18Activity 2 - Plan a strategy for evaluating your product
  19. 19. Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2)Plan a strategy for evaluating your product• The candidate has devised a plan for evaluation and they haveconsidered the methods they will use — these will be, in themajority, appropriate to the product.• Once you have selected your design factors, begin to plan how youmight evaluate your product against them. Be logical and ensure youcan actually carry out the evaluations or tests. Keep personal safetyand the safety of others in mind.Remember the purpose of an evaluation.• Evaluation is a systematic determination of a subjects merit, worthand significance, using criteria governed by a set of standardsTASK1 – Design Outcome 3.2The candidate has devised a detailed plan for evaluation and they haveconsidered the methods they will use — these will be appropriate to the product19TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  20. 20. • Methods of Evaluating a Producthttp://www.technologystudent.com/designpro/eval1.htm• 1. User Experience• This is where several people use the product andgive their opinions on how well it worked. Theiropinions must be noted. This can be in the form of aquestionnaire. User trials can be used totest for function, performance, market, aestheticsand ergonomics.Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2)Methods for evaluating a product20TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDM
  21. 21. • User experience evaluation means investigating how a person feels about using asystem (product, service, non-commercial item, or a combination of them).• Detailed guidance for user experience evaluation is hard to give, since there are manydifferent dimensions to consider when choosing the evaluation approach:• Goal: Summative (score) or Formative (areas for improvement)• Approach: Objective or Subjective• Data: Quantitative or Qualitative• Utility: Does the user perceive the functions in the system as useful and fit for thepurpose?• Usability: Does the user feel that it is easy and efficient to get things done with thesystem?• Aesthetics: Does the user see the system as visually attractive? Does it feel pleasurablein hand?• Identification: Can I identify myself with the product? Do I look good when using it?• Stimulation: Does the system give me inspiration? Or wow experiences?• Value: Is the system important to me? What is its value for me?21TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDMActivity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2)Methods for evaluating a product
  22. 22. Physical Testing• Test your product to see thatit works in the way that wasintended. Record yourresults.• Test for durability byrepeating a simple droptest, decide on the height andrepetitions of drops.• Always inspect before andafter the test and record yourresults. 22Activity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2)Methods for evaluating a product
  23. 23. Information Retrieval• Using any method available do research on how your chosen productshould perform against the Design Factors you are using to evaluate yourproduct.• Record the information you find.23TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDMActivity 3 (T1/A3/D3.2)Methods for evaluating a product
  24. 24. Activity 4 Evaluate your product and present yourfindings• It is important that you display the results of theevaluations clearly and neatly. This can beaccomplished by using the methods listed below.• Tables of results with comments• Short reports• Pie and Bar chartsDisplay your results for each design factor. Some ofthe ways to do this are shown on the next two slides.24TASK1 - Evaluate a Time Piece RHS GDMActivity 4 - Evaluating the product and presenting theresults, including justification of the evaluation methodsused
