Development of products for production in an automated production line. Competence and skills the student has developed in subjects such as material theory, idea development and visualization, form and three-dimensional model development, computer-assisted design, product design, universal design and production methods must be utilized in an overall product development process.
The course will simulate a product development process that can be close to the type of work they encounter after completing their studies. Design, material, production techniques and sustainability requirements must govern the product to be developed.
Collaboration with students in other courses of study, such as Product design and technology, mechanical engineering and master's students in sustainable product production, can be expected.
- The candidate can use professional terminology to be able to describe and justify choices made in the product development process.The candidate must build on and reinforce previously acquired subject knowledge from subjects.
- The candidate knows basic methods in new thinking and innovation.
- The candidate can justify what is an appropriate solution in relation to materials, design and conceptual criteria in product development.
- The candidate must be able to carry out a product development process from the idea stage to prototyping.
- The candidate must be able to utilize their knowledge of how to choose the right materials for different types of design.
- The candidate can evaluate and discuss their own and others' work by using specialist terminology, as well as carry this out in an objective manner.
- The candidate can assess the quality of other students' product proposals based on general requirements.
- The candidate can convey central subject matter such as theories, problems and solutions both in writing, orally and through other relevant forms of expression.
- The candidate can plan and implement projects that extend over time, alone or as a participant in a group, and in line with ethical requirements and guidelines.
- The candidate can exchange views and experiences with others with a background in the subject area and through this contribute to the development of good practice.
Learning methods and activities
The subject's working methods are mainly based on project work.
- Other working methods will be:
- Group workStudent-active forms of teaching
- Academic writing
- Fellow student evaluation
- Oral presentationsInterdisciplinary collaboration
- Self-study and self-directed work periods, individually or in groups
Further on evaluation
The folder must consist of comprehensive project work where the product development process is documented in an appropriate manner. This is delivered digitally in Inspera.
The project will be presented orally and discussed in two sessions during the semester.
Failed: A new portfolio must be submitted at the next completion of the course.
