Abstract
This report incorporates a product styling development concept carried out on Scania a vehicle manufacturer known for its premium long haulage trucks, located in Södertälje, Sweden. The report consists of the development of the writers’ conception and implementation of the term “Driver Focus” on Scanias truck interior.
The project is carried out using various different industrial design techniques including techniques from; “The Universal Traveller” by Don Koberg and Jim Bagnall, “Six Thinking Hats” by Edward de Bono and “Product Development and Design” by Karl Ulrich and Steven D. Eppinger. Especially Ulrich and Eppingers concept methods are used when planning the development of the project and setting up checkpoints to have as reference... (More)
This report incorporates a product styling development concept carried out on Scania a vehicle manufacturer known for its premium long haulage trucks, located in Södertälje, Sweden. The report consists of the development of the writers’ conception and implementation of the term “Driver Focus” on Scanias truck interior.
The project is carried out using various different industrial design techniques including techniques from; “The Universal Traveller” by Don Koberg and Jim Bagnall, “Six Thinking Hats” by Edward de Bono and “Product Development and Design” by Karl Ulrich and Steven D. Eppinger. Especially Ulrich and Eppingers concept methods are used when planning the development of the project and setting up checkpoints to have as reference in conjunction with the perquisites given from Scania and their Scania Product Planning method.
The report begins with clarifying the existing technology- and vehicle market and goes on to analysing Scanias own vehicles and interior technology. To get a clearer view of the concepts’ users a survey is carried out at the Scania Transport Laboratory successfully reaching a broad group of drivers. To complete the pre-study it’s decided to focus on the armrest and implement “Driver Focus” as best as possible under its restrictions.
The concept generation Part 1 starts and includes a brainstorming session with a wide representation of Scania employees to get a varied range of ideas. This leads to concept sorting and functional analysis that ends in an appliance of final target specifications. Part 2 evaluates the concepts more restrictively and it’s decided that the projects final goal will be to develop three armrests all with different design characteristics and functions.
The project ends in a presentation for Scania for which full-scale 3D-models and renderings of the concepts focusing ultimately to enhance “Driver Focus” are presented along with a banner describing the project. (Less)
