Coursework ChecklistSection√Problem and analysis (with Photos/drawings)Development: Concept ModellingConfirmation of the problem: Questionnaire or case study results.Development: Possible materialsResearch Plan: what areas do you need to research?Brief/initial SpecificationDevelopment: BrandingQuestionnaires/letters/ s etc to gather information. Analysis of this information.Development: labelling/packagingResearch: Project Specific Research, e.g.possible power sources/input or output devices/hygiene etc.Development: Final designHuman Factors/User ProfilesPlanning: Working Drawings/Cutting List/Manufacturing flowchartExisting Products/Case Studies/Materials/Summary and Conclusions from ResearchPractical:Make the Product!Final Specification using ResearchMake the Packaging!Initial ideas: sketches and notesUser testing in context(including recommended modifications)Evaluation of initial IdeasEvaluationDevelopment: variations/modificationsAdaptation for commercial production.Check regularly that you are completing the things on this page

3 Problem DT Coursework Where does Describe the problem
the problem occur?Who is affectedby the problem?What sort of thing could Idesign to solve the problem?How does theproblem affect them?DT Coursework

4 Problem Confirmation DT Coursework
This is where you show the results of your questionnaire.Graph ofyour resultsGraph ofyour resultsExplain whatthe results mean.Graph ofyour resultsGraph ofyour resultsExplain whatthe results mean.Explain how yourquestionnaire has leadyou to the conclusion thatthere is a validproblem to solve.Explain whatthe results mean.Explain whatthe results mean.DT Coursework

5 Research Plan DT Coursework Where can I find this out?
This is where you tell the examiner what it is you are going to research (it is not your actual research!) It is in three sections:Where can I find this out?What do you need to know?What I intend to do with the informationWhy do I need to know this?DT Coursework

6 User Profile DT Coursework
Write a paragraph describing the people you are expecting to want to buy your productInclude photos of your user group and their lifestyleDT Coursework

7 Existing Products DT Coursework
You need to include analysis of at least 4 existing products.Include a photo of the product and analyse it using the sheet at:R:\Design Technology\Year 10\Product AnalysisDT Coursework

8 Other Research DT Coursework Materials Manufacturing Techniques
This covers several pages and includes:MaterialsHuman FactorsManufacturing TechniquesMaterialsWhat to make it fromManufacturing TechniquesProduct-Specific ResearchHow to make itStuff you need to know about your projectHuman FactorsTo help you with this section there is a PowerPoint presentation at:(Click on the hyperlink and choose “open”)DT Coursework

9 SpecificationMake a list of at least ten things about your product that would make it a successful solution to your problem. Include:Things your product has to be able to doThings your product needs to achieve.How you product will meet the needs of the user.Explain each of your points in detail, including any necessary measurements, things you will need to find out and things your materials will have to be able to do.DT Coursework

10 Initial Ideas DT Coursework You must show the examiner
a range of initial ideas – thismeans there must be at least 9and thatthey must all be different.DT Coursework

11 Evaluation of Ideas DT Coursework
Add a cross or a tick to indicate whether you are going to develop the ideaOn this page you write a short comment on each idea saying whether you like it or not, why, and if your are considering developing it further.DT Coursework

12 Development - Variations
Take your best three ideas and (on separate pages) sketch variations, including:Changes in the shape and size of componentsFront, back, side and top viewsSuggestions on how it will fit togetherSuggestions for materials and colour schemes.DT Coursework

13 Development - Detailed Chosen Idea 1
Again, this takes several pages:1. Do a construction drawing of your chosen design – this shows all the parts drawn out to scale.2. Modelling: include photos of any models you made and add your notes on how this helped you modify your design.DT Coursework

14 Development - Detailed Chosen Idea 2
Again, this takes several pages:3. Tests and experiments: show what tests you did and how you did them.4. Use SketchUp to present your final designDT Coursework

15 Manufacturing Flowchart
You need to use a flowchart to explain how to make your product. There are different, specific symbols for each stage of the process. Some of these are shown below.TERMINATORrepresents start, restart, stop.DECISIONrepresents a choice which can lead to another pathwayPROCESSRepresents a particular instruction or actionINPUT/OUTPUTrepresents additions to or removals from the particular process.The symbols are linked together by arrows which indicate the correct sequence of events. The aim should be to make the flowchart as clear and simple as possible.This example shows how production plan for one component may look.- Always start with the correct symbol.- Show each stage in a rectangle using clear easy to follow instructions- You will need to undertake some quality checks, what will they be? Quality checks require a decision so a diamond shape is used.- You will need to build in feedback loops if something is found to be wrong. This could take you back one or several stages so that some process can be adjusted before going forward again.STOPSTARTDT Coursework

16 Commercial Production
A company would not make your product in the same way that you have done. You have made a PROTOTYPE – i.e. the first example of the product. Commercial production must be done on a larger scale in order to be profitable.On this page you need to consider whether you product would be best made using Batch or Mass production. You need to:Explain what each meansExplain which one you would useShow how you would modify your design in order that it would be more suitable for commercial production.Warning: You MUST do this page – there are lots of marks that can only be given for a completed commercial production page.DT Coursework

17 Evaluation DT Coursework
You should test your product against the original specification. Check your prototype against each of the criteria you originally listed. Was the design specification correct? Did you need to revise this as the work progressed? A simple chart might help.An evaluation should include a review of your final product using your judgement to assess its success. Asking other people’s opinions is an important part of this process. A good place to start would be to answer the following questions:- do you find the product easy to use?- does it function in the way it was intended to?- What do you think about the style of the product?- Do you like or dislike any of the features? Explain why.- Would you purchase this product and if so what would you expect to pay for such a product?What are the main advantages or disadvantages compared to similar products?Include photographs of your product being used by your target user group. Make sure you include their opinions.DT Coursework

7 Section E: Communication (6 Marks)
Is your design folder focused, concise, relevant?Are all decisions communicated in a clear way with appropriate use of technical language.Have you checked spelling, punctuation and grammar?Mr Guinness Coursework Help Sheets : AQA Product Design CAT

8 Top Ten Tips...Put in the time at home...don’t try and do it all within lessons.Presentation is really important; slide layout (even font size) needs to be regular throughout your presentation.Slide Order...all slides must be in the correct order, with the correct headings(See feedback sheet)Every slide needs a sentence of introduction (stating the purpose of the slide) and a summary stating what you have learned and how it will help you to develop your design.Specification points must be justified (explanation given as to why the point has been made)Every picture, photo and scan needs detailed description,(Explain, analyse, inform).Manufacturing Specification must include a cutting list of all the parts needed to make your product with details of size and materials to be used.Photo Diary...as well as annotating your photos, explain problems you have encountered and solutions you have found, prove to the moderator that you are a good problem solver.Ask for help, your Teacher if you get stuck, don’t wait until the lesson.Get someone (a parent or friend) to read your work and see if it is logical and makes sense.Mr Guinness Coursework Help Sheets : AQA Product Design CAT

9 S.C.A.M.P.E.R.SCAMPERis a checklist that helps you to think of changes you can make to an existing product to create a new one. You can use these changes either as direct suggestions or as starting points for lateral thinking.The changes SCAMPER stands for are:S – Substitute – components, materials, people.C – Combine – mix, combine with other assemblies or services, integrate.A – Adapt – alter, change function, use part of another element.M – Modify – increase or reduce in scale, change shape, modify attributes (e.g. colour).P – Put to another use.E – Eliminate – remove elements, simplify, reduce to core functionality.R – Reverse – turn inside out or upside down, or use Reversal.Mr Guinness Coursework Help Sheets : AQA Product Design CAT
