Design Process - Lockers

  1. 1. Process: How do you solve problems? By Danish Shaikh Problem: Suppose you have been hired to re-design the student lockers at a large public high school. What PROCESS would you use to tackle this project? Describe the most important steps.
  2. 2. Proposed Solution
  3. 3. Step 1: Assess the number of students and the number of lockers required
  4. 4. Step 2: Assess the Space Available
  5. 5. Step 3: Assess what typically is stored by a student in a locker (to decide on the capacity of the locker).
  6. 6. Step 4: Conduct a survey on what a student would want to store in a locker which he/she cannot currently do?
  7. 7. Step 5: Assess feasibility of the suggestions
  8. 8. Step 6: Make an inventory of locks, handles, etc. which can be reused
  9. 9. Step 7: Check for more economical and ecofriendly materials to construct the new lockers (like plastic/wood instead of the metal).
  10. 10. Step 8: Then taking all of the above into consideration, I would design lockers that would most efficiently utilise space and would get constructed with minimum material after exploring different design options & possible layouts
  11. 11. Step 9: Prototype and keep testing till the final design is approved.
  12. 12. Step 10: Construct the lockers & sign-off
