1. INTRODUCTION In order for a product to be successful, the firms have to identify the needs of the customer and make the product according to the needs and within the cost and the time margin. And there exists certain criteria or steps for the development of the product. – Planning – Concept development – Architectural (system-level) design – Detailed design – Testing and refinement – Production design and ramp-up This coursework, detailed about a Mechatronics design model. Section 2 is describing the design methodology.
Specifically, product life-cycle is defined as an evolution of a product by measuring it by its sells over time (Ӧstlin, Sundin & Björkman, 2009). It refers to entire product categories rather than individual products, firms, or brands within the product category. Based on the product
After these companies go about developing products, which may be product modification or it may be a completely new product. Product offerings are increasing every year as consumers are looking for more and more variety of products. Companies which are unable to churn out new products fall back on competition and suffer the consequences. Companies face danger not just from competitors but consumer needs, technology, and product life cycle. New product development has its share of challenges.
Marketing strategy Customers Youth, families, tourists, older customers and the middle working class Product life cycle. According to Kotler, P. & Gary, A. (2011), the product life cycle has five stages namely product development, introduction, growth, maturity and decline stage. The stages are determined by the market share of the product. Before the product enters the market, there are no sales, as the product is being prepared for the market.
Computer-aided-Design (CAD) refers to use computer software technology to assist with conceptual design and layout of products. In the products and industrial design, CAD software is widely used in creating 2D or 3D graphical representation of products. It also involves data analysing to help engineers with optimizing design for manufacturing. In this lab, “AutoCAD 2016” is used for drawing. Computer-aided-Manufacturing (CAM) is the process of using computer software to define detailed manufacturing plan by G-code in order to instruct the CNC machine to manufacturing designed products.
I was particularly struck by the distinction between different modes of delivering curriculum and in particular the contrast between Product and Process methods, in curriculum development. At this point it might be useful to analyse the distinction between these two processes. Neary identifies the Product Model as one that “emphasises plans and intentions” whereas in the Process Model, the emphasis is on the “activities and effects” (O’Neill 2015, p27). In essence therefore the Product Model can be regarded as a more traditional and historically tested method of developing curriculum. The work of John Franklin Bobbitt and Ralph Tyler very much advocate Product curricular designs, maintaining that these designs are centred on the creation of a disciplined and “structured learning environment for students” (O’Neill 2015, p).
While designing a Product, a product designer has to consider various aspects like how the product will perform its intended functionality in an efficient, safe and reliable manner. Apart from the necessary requirements a product design should consider other constraints like it should be manufactured economically and to be attractive to targeted consumers. Depending upon the size of the product and number of individual parts involved to form the final intended product, the number of steps involved in the design may vary. There are various product design processes in practice and focus on different
Process Strategies The process strategies, for such a large manufacturing company, would need to be varied. The production process type would be determined by the product life cycle stage at that time (Thayer 2004).Product life cycles for items such as smartphones and tablets do not generally follow the standard life cycle stages. The maturity stage can be interrupted by discontinuation or irrelevance of a technology, which recommences the cycle (Giachetti & Marchi 2010). Incidentally, during the product life cycle of these items, a cyclic improvement of both process and product is required to stay in contact with market changes. New technologies in functionality and manufacturing processes are required to stay ahead of an ever changing market
The augmented product is a concept which forces manufacturer to offer more benefits from the product than expected especially because of competition. This concept might include benefits such as free delivery or after sales services or guarantee. Eventually the concept of potential product includes a company to do all that it can to attract and hold customers. This may include redesign of the product such as reduce its weight; improve its battery life or its
NTRODUCTION Project management in construction has been practiced for thousands of years, it emerged during the growing complexity of commerce and industries on large defense projects and during this time, technology advancement shortened the project schedule. however, it has been about half a century ago that organizations started with the use of systematic project management tools and techniques to complex construction projects. During the world war II there was virtually no construction which took place in some parts of the world, however in the mid 1950’s larger construction projects were planned and made with the inclusion of very big hospitals, large schools and university buildings and other major public projects with others of all sorts.
