Product Development
Abstract
This report describes a product development process of a carrier for mobile phones. The product development process is based on the description in Ulrich and Eppinger [1]. Including what steps should be followed to achieve a final product that meet decided requirements. The work is performed in cooperation with the company Medotemic AB.
Through an application, the mobile phone can measure the user's movement pattern and draw conclusions about either the user's running technique or how the user's rehabilitation is going. The purpose of the degree project is to design a carrier for different types of mobile phones. It should be placed centered at waist height and be useful for different ages and body shapes. The purpose of the carrier is to... (More)
This report describes a product development process of a carrier for mobile phones. The product development process is based on the description in Ulrich and Eppinger [1]. Including what steps should be followed to achieve a final product that meet decided requirements. The work is performed in cooperation with the company Medotemic AB.
Through an application, the mobile phone can measure the user's movement pattern and draw conclusions about either the user's running technique or how the user's rehabilitation is going. The purpose of the degree project is to design a carrier for different types of mobile phones. It should be placed centered at waist height and be useful for different ages and body shapes. The purpose of the carrier is to facilitate the measurements of the application.
The product development process includes identification of customer needs, determination of goal specifications, concept generation, concept selection, testing of various concepts, determination of final specifications/concepts. To identify customer needs, interviews were held, and questionnaires were sent out to future customers in both target groups; runners and rehabilitation patients, to get an as broad overview as possible of the possible needs. Prototypes were built for physical testing with people of different ages and body shapes. Finally, a final concept was presented with a possible choice of material.
The thesis project resulted in a unique and simple design created as a waist bag adapted for all types of mobiles, ages, and body shapes. (Less)
