In recent years the chemical processes industry has faced important social, technical and economical challenges. As a result, the nature of its products, business strategies and ultimately the needs associated with the skills and technical knowledge of chemical engineers suffered enormous evolutions. One of such main changes is related to the emergence of chemical product design (CPD) as a specific and critical new field within the scope of chemical engineering. The importance of CPD teaching in chemical engineering courses is becoming well recognized by a number of different and leading universities. This paper presents a CPD course conceived and taught at the University of Coimbra to final year students in a fiveyear chemical engineering degree. It was developed with a special focus on the connections between CPD and quality engineering tools. The course was considered as a product by itself and conceived as such, namely through a clear identification of its strategic scope (mission, vision and values), aims (skills to be developed and knowledge to be acquired) and structural features (functional organization, time allocation, learning practices, programmatic contents and performance appraisal). A sample of two specific chemical product design projects carried out by teams of students is also described. This teaching experience has been very rewarding and stimulating from the perspectives of both faculty and students. It shows that CPD is indeed a new discipline that can and should be offered to more and more chemical engineering students all over the world...

Este trabalho aborda a avaliação do processo de projeto e desenvolvimento do produto do ponto de vista do projetista de nível superior. Ao fazê-lo, o autor espera estar pavimentando um caminho, que eventualmente, conduza a um método mais amigável de avaliar a qualidade do processo de projeto do produto e que possa vir a ser realmente considerado útil por divisões e/ou organizações de projeto. As razões para a seleção desta abordagem são explicadas. Ressalta-se também, que o trabalho envolve duas fases: a pesquisa preliminar e a pesquisa propriamente dita. Apresenta-se em seguida uma discussão que conduz à seleção de uma metodologia que combina a utilização da abordagem SERVQUAL e do método do incidente crítico (CIT) na primeira fase. Introduz-se o conceito central de fator de eficácia, bem como se estabelece suas relações com os itens de satisfação e as dimensões SERVQUAL. Com base nos resultados da fase preliminar, elabora-se um questionário de pesquisa abrangente, que é submetido a um grupo de projetistas de nível superior do setor automotivo, compreendendo as operações brasileiras de duas grandes montadoras internacionais, de dois fornecedores diretos (Tier 1) das montadoras e de uma grande montadora internacional de caminhões e ônibus. Os dados obtidos através das respostas ao questionário são compilados...

Como não há pleno consenso, atualmente, entre as múltiplas definições dos conceitos de "design" e de "design de produto", as fronteiras do campo de atuação do designer de produto resultam percebidas e determinadas, em grande parte, por exemplos visuais veiculados por livros, revistas e jornais acessíveis ao grande público e a estudantes, designers ou aqueles envolvidos com esta área de projeto. Uma observação inicial, anterior a esta pesquisa, percebeu que em publicações de design ilustradas, havia hipertrofia na representação de certos produtos de design e rarefação na de outros, situação que podia chegar, no limite, à inexistência de referência até mesmo de produtos familiares e comuns. A presente investigação se propôs, assim, quantificar, objetivamente, este desequilíbrio na representação de produtos existentes em bibliografia da área, por meio de contagem das imagens de objetos em livros de design. A par desta contagem de ocorrências de imagens de produtos, foram também identificadas, claramente, em outras fontes, situações de forte demanda da atividade do design de produto na vida cotidiana de sociedades contemporâneas. Estas demandas, ao final da pesquisa, apontaram para a existência de um espectro mais amplo e objetivo do campo do design de produto o que permitiu aferir...

Esta pesquisa se propôs a construir uma breve cronologia da evolução do desenho industrial no estado do Rio de Janeiro, tendo como fio condutor três linhas de atuação do design: prática profissional (profissionais, escritórios, empresas, produtos e projetos), ensino e promoção/divulgação (eventos, conferências, exposições, premiações e concursos). Estas informações hoje se encontram dispersas ou são de todo desconhecidas do grande público. A pesquisa então procurou levantar, organizar e analisar criticamente esse volume de dados e informações, de modo a documentar e resgatar o desenvolvimento do design industrial no Rio de Janeiro. Este trabalho concentrou o foco do estudo histórico no design de produto, visto que uma série de trabalhos recentemente publicados já iniciou o processo de prospecção histórica do design gráfico no Brasil. Em que pese, além disso, que um estudo regionalizado do design de produto, centrado no Rio de Janeiro, ser uma contribuição relevante à historiografia do design brasileiro. A pesquisa fez uso de técnicas qualitativas de obtenção e tratamento de dados, destacando-se a pesquisa bibliográfica (sempre que possível fazendo uso de fontes primárias); o contato (via cartas...

Em um mundo marcado pela globalização, mercados comuns, grandes grupos corporativos, produção em massa e uma oferta quase ilimitada de produtos industriais, a individualização é um requisito que ganha cada vez mais importância entre os consumidores. O mercado para produtos que expressem sua personalidade e seus gostos, que os identifiquem e os tornem únicos por meio da customização, está em franca expansão. Isto abre uma possibilidade para o design comprometido em desenvolver produtos que atendam essas necessidades individuais, mesmo em produtos produzidos em massa. No entanto, os métodos projetuais usualmente empregados por profissionais do design não contemplam esse novo cenário, gerando uma lacuna a ser estudada. Este trabalho tem como objetivo, identificar etapas e características dos processos metodológicos que incorporam a customização pós-produção. Este trabalho faz uso da investigação exploratória, bibliográfica e qualitativa por meio da aplicação de questionários e entrevistas. A aplicação das entrevistas ocorreu com um grupo de profissionais atuantes nas diferentes áreas do design de produto. A síntese das entrevistas, aliada a uma análise comparativa dos dados convergentes e divergentes...

Prilosec purple, Viagra blue, and Prozac green and cream: pharmaceutical product design is on the rise, and the future is even brighter. As design features come into view, protection against copying is critical to maintaining the effectiveness of these source-identifying marks. The current state of trademark law allows drug manufacturers to prevent competitors from producing similar medications with the same appearance or identifying design feature. However, while most courts have been increasingly sympathetic to product design protection, these tools are not yet being fully utilized by the pharmaceutical industry. This paper describes the current state of trademark and trade dress protection of pharmaceutical product design, such as color, shape, and flavor and provides insight into why pharmaceutical companies have yet to take full advantage of available trademark and trade dress protection.

Due to the increasing demand of application-specific and/or multi-functional materials, it is necessary to integrate material design and product design. To support such design integration, this paper proposes a methodology to establish the relationships of both material design variables and product design variables. These variables include the required system performances and/or other evaluation criteria, and the relevant system loadings and attributes, where the attributes include both the product structural attributes and the material properties. This is achieved by modeling the behaviors of the product and those of the used material, and identifying the dependencies between the relevant design variables from the behaviors. The variable relationships can then be used to solve various design problems, such as design evaluation, evaluation and optimization of critical design variables, and so on. A design case study is also conducted to illustrate the proposed methodology and its usefulness.; Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA)

Dans les sphères du développement durable, des modèles d’affaires et du design de produit, certains leviers rendent le croisement de ces trois sphères de plus en plus pertinent. Au croisement de ces trois sphères se trouve une opportunité de comprendre les relations existantes entre le design de produit et les modèles d’affaires afin d’aider les décideurs à développer des solutions davantage durables. L’approche méthodologique de cette recherche utilise un système complexe et est basée sur un paradigme pragmatique. En vue de répondre à la question « Dans quelle mesure des modèles d’affaires et le design de produit sont liés dans un contexte de développement durable? », cette recherche a soigneusement analysé trois cas: Better Place, une compagnie californienne ayant développé une infrastructure permettant le chargement des voitures électriques; Interface Inc., un manufacturier mondial de tuiles de tapis commerciales établi à Atlanta; et Métacycle, un concept d’entreprise développé par une équipe de chercheurs en design à Montréal. Chaque cas a été analysé en corrélant des aspects du design de produit à des éléments de leur modèle d’affaires. Les résultats montrent que dans le contexte du développement durable...

peer-reviewed; Design in industry is changing and design education needs to evolve accordingly. The borders between design disciplines are blurring with the different areas of design extending into each other. Design problems have become more complex as several technologies are combined to produce not just stand alone products but systems and services that are interconnected. To date product design has only been concerned with the hard-ware of a product but now the focus must also be on the disciplines and areas of design that are impacting on product design. Despite industry advances there is a belief that education is not supporting these opportunities. Evidence has shown that currently there is a poor link between design practice and design education. Many product design courses are based on the craft based Bauhaus style studio course which place an emphasis on aesthetics and form. Skills such as rendering, model making and styling are the focus despite the fact that industry is now looking for skills in other areas. This paper reviews the disciplines of design that are merging with product design. It examines the variety of design approaches and methods used by those disciplines. This shows that a holistic approach is needed to solve today’s design problems. This paper contributes to a better understanding of product design in industry and can contribute to educators in developing educational strategies for the teaching of product design.

As a solution for traditional design process having many drawbacks in the manufacturing process, the integration of Product design-Process selection-Process planning is carried out in the early design phase. The technological, economic, and logistic parameters are taken into account simultaneously as well as manufacturing constraints being integrated into the product design. As a consequence, the most feasible alternative with regard to the product’s detailed design is extracted satisfying the product’s functional requirements. Subsequently, a couple of conceptual process plans are proposed relied on manufacturing processes being preliminarily selected in the conceptual design phase. Virtual manufacturing is employed under CAM software to simulate fabrication process of the potential process plans. Ultimately, the most suitable process plan for fabricating the part is recommended based upon a multi-criteria analysis as a resolution for decision making.

In order to reach a degree of quality in architectural buildings that is likely to lead to user satisfaction, architectural design relies on integrating user-related information even before generation of building concepts. However, integrating such information may be seen as a hindrance to architectural creation. It therefore seems necessary to propose a methodological approach that allows integration of a user-centred point of view as well as generation of creative architectural concepts. Our research proposes to apply a collaborative process of New Product Design (NPD) in order to further enrich the traditional process of architectural design. We will present some experimental work carried out as part of an architectural project for the design of emergency shelters, as an alternative to more usual habitats. We will then discuss the possibility of adapting NPD methodology to architectural design, and what potential this offers to improve the integration of user-related information within architectural creativity.

Experience has become the new paradigm of product design. Designers seek to anticipate emotions or associations a user might have when in contact with their design. The factors that influence human product perception are diverse. We firstly show which product dimensions are currently investigated by design researchers. It becomes obvious that besides the usual suspects: form and colour, emotion and associations, there must be many others. We conducted a study to identify these and to estimate their pertinence in actual product conception. Word-based techniques like retrospective verbalization and mind mapping were employed. Semantic descriptors, analogies, and functionalities were highly represented. Sensations and emotions did only appear marginally among the abstract dimensions. The same low occurrence was seen for production procedures among the concrete dimensions. Other interesting dimensions found were interaction gestures, design motifs, and product components. An additional analysis of the participant mind maps on relations between the various dimensions showed many connections between e.g. material and texture or semantics and colour. Yet, these were rarely related to sensations and emotions. The insights widen the perspective on unexploited opportunities for design researchers to develop further conception strategies that allow the anticipation of user experience in product design.; ANR COSINUS

This paper addresses the subject of product design process evaluation from the designer's point of view. Based on the results of a preliminary research phase a comprehensive questionnaire is drawn up, and applied to a selected group of designers in the automotive industry, comprising Brazilian plants of two major car manufacturers, two Tier 1 suppliers and one lorry and bus manufacturer. Data provided by the answers are compiled, presented and discussed within each organizational environment. A combined analysis is then carried out in order to identify those management actions that are considered by the automotive industry as being more important for both assuring and evaluating the effectiveness of the product design and development process. Management actions are classified according to criteria supplied by the ISO quality management standards. Finally, based on the evaluation, management action indicators are defined and a single and flexible effectiveness index is proposed, which can be calculated using both company and industry data for evaluation and benchmark purposes.

Ogunnaike, Babatunde A.; Wetzel, Mark D.; Polymer nanocomposites are increasingly used across a variety of applications in the plastics sectors, especially in the packaging and automotive industries. The successful development and commercialization of polymer nanocomposites requires an appropriate product design, followed by an efficient process for manufacturing the products to achieve desired end-use product performance consistently. While product design of nanocomposites has been receiving deserved attention, the equally important next step--a control scheme designed for ensuring that what the manufacturing process produces will perform as designed--receives little or even no attention. Since it is the customer that evaluates the product performance, the control strategy required for achieving the objectives of product design must extend well beyond the traditional control scheme of merely controlling process output variables and even beyond the end-use characteristics control; it must explicitly incorporate customer feedback on the product performance, in order to ascertain consistent attainment of desired product end-use performance. However, this feedback is completely missing from the control schemes. To address these challenging issues...
