Q.1 Industrial Design
During the monsoon season, drying of washed clothes at home takes a long time. The interior of the house is usually very damp. It is observed that people tend to spread the wet clothes on a chair or other furniture below a ceiling fan, to dry them. Such temporary arrangements help them cope with the problem.
A leading fan manufacturing company sees a business opportunity. The company approaches you to design a product for drying clothes. The manufacturer proposes to sell this product (which is to be used during monsoons) along with a fan. The manufacturer wants the following objectives to be met in the design:
a) The product uses a fan for drying clothes.
b) The fan must be integrated with the product during its use in rainy season and must be usable as a “normal fan” during other seasons.
c) The product should be foldable and compact for storage. Design the product as per the objectives listed above.
1. Present three ideas of design alternatives through rough sketches. (10 marks) Evaluation Criteria: Quality of creative ideas and neatness of sketches.
2. List ten critical factors (key words only) you will consider for designing. (10 marks) Evaluation Criteria: Understanding of the situation and product use.
3. Select one of your ideas and develop it into a final product. Make a neat sketch of the same. Indicate all the parts, material and features on this sketch. (20 marks) Evaluation Criteria: Sketching quality, details, product features and usability issues.
