University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för teknik och samhälle; Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för teknik och samhälle

Abstract:

This report covers a Bachelor degree project, where a new concept of kitchen for disabled people has been developed. In addition, this report describes the design process employed in the project as well as the details of the design work.

In  order  to  develop  a  successful  product,  technical  data  like  requirement  specifications, materials  currently  used  by  the  company  and  the  manufacture  of  such  products  were considered throughout the progress of the project. In  addition, we  carried  out  a market  research  and  visited  the  fair  “Leva &  Fungera”  in order to analyse the current situation of this market field and what disabled people would think  about  kitchen modules  that  completely  adapts  to  their  requirements. This  research gave us  an understanding of  the user´s needs  and provided us with  valuable help  for  an ergonomics evaluation study. Different creative methods were used to come further with new ideas, as well as different and more economic solutions than the existing ones. Finally, CAD models were made with Pro Engineer Wildfire 4 and evaluated with Jack 5.1 in  order  to  visualise  and  evaluate  the  final  concepts. The  ultimate  result  is  presented  in detail in a video made in 3D Studio Max.
