Ideas That Change The World

  1. 1. Ideas That Change The World.<br />Ergonomics DESG314<br />Presented by: Chris Teh<br />
  2. 2. Ideas that change the world=Improve people’s life.<br />
  3. 3. “Bring the materials to the men, instead of men to the materials.”<br />-Henry Ford.<br />
  4. 4. Henry Ford and his engineer developed a moving assembly line based on the ones used in the Chicago beef industries and result: <br /><ul><li>Carried materials to the workers efficiently.
  5. 5. Reducing overall labor time and energy dramatically.
  6. 6. Improves standard of living and wages.</li></li></ul><li>Today: The Ford Motor Company equip its Flatrock, Michigan, plant with an assembly line of robotic arms. Result:<br /><ul><li>Less casualties in work place.
  7. 7. Higher mass-productivity.
  8. 8. Further reducing overall labor time and energy dramatically.
  9. 9. Further improves standard of living and wages.</li></li></ul><li>Frustration + Problem Solving<br />=<br />Ideas That Took Off.<br />
  10. 10. &quot;Wilbur and I could hardly wait for morning to come to get at something that interested us. That&apos;s happiness.“<br />-Wright Brothers.<br />
  11. 11. Frustration & perseverance resulting Wright Brothers making hundreds of  prototypes and testing them in a small-scale wind tunnel to measure lift and drag. <br />Each problem solving idea they had is revealing something newand bring them closer to the idea.<br />
  12. 12. Wright brothers hard work pays off by unlocking the secrets of control to conquer &quot;the flying problem&quot;, rather than developing more powerful engines as some other experimenters did resulting the invention of three-axis control (X,Y,Z Axis).<br />Pitch - Angle of X Body Axis (nose) relative to horizon. Also a positive (nose up) rotation about Y Body Axis<br />Roll - Angle of Y Body Axis (wing) relative to horizon. Also a positive (right wing down) rotation about X Body Axis<br />Yaw - Angle of X Body Axis (nose) relative to North. Also a positive (nose right) rotation about Z Body axis<br />
  13. 13. Good Ideas Need Investment <br />of <br />Time & Energy.<br />
  14. 14. &quot;I have not failed.  I&apos;ve just found 10,000 ways that won&apos;t work.“<br />-Thomas Edison.<br />
  15. 15. Thomas Edison became a holder of 1,093 US patents is a result of being:<br />PERSEVERANCE<br />
  16. 16. How Stubborn Are You?<br />
  17. 17. <ul><li> “If we worked on the assumption that what is accepted </li></ul> as true really is true, then there would be little hope <br /> for advance”<br /> -Orville Wright<br />
  18. 18. What if it goes wrong?<br />
  19. 19. <ul><li>Every mistake is a learning experience and make </li></ul>mistake valuable. <br />
  20. 20. <ul><li>The Inverted Jenny (also known as an Upside Down Jenny or Jenny Invert).
  21. 21. It is probably the most famous error in American philately.
  22. 22. United States postage stamp first issued on May 10 1918.
  23. 23. Curtiss JN-4 airplane in the center of the design was accidentally printed upside-down.
  24. 24. Only one pane of 100 of the invert stamps was ever found,
  25. 25. Making this error one of the most prized in all philately.</li></ul>Inverted Jenny sold $977,500 as single copy at 2007<br /><br />Source:<br />
