Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport beskriver ett examensarbete inom integrerad produktutveckling vid Högskolan i Skövde. Arbetet utfördes i samarbete med företaget The Best of Sweden AB där uppdraget var att utveckla ett fäste och skyltar för bakrutetorkare på personbilar.

Utvecklingsprocessen för produkten började med en förstudie där bland annat kundbehov undersöktes. Under förstudien undersöktes även olika faktorer som kan komma att påverka produkten i dess användningsmiljö, exempelvis bilars aerodynamik och kraften i bakrutetorkarens motor. En fältstudie genomfördes på existerande torkararmar som fästets och skyltarnas mått grundas på. Resultatet från förstudien var en kravspecifikation som det slutliga konceptet ska kunna ställas mot. Olika strukturerade designmetoder användes under konceptgenerering samt konceptutvärdering som följdes upp av detaljutveckling. Förslag på material och tillverkningsmetod samt ett kostnadsförslag togs fram.

Resultatet blev en fästanordning och skyltar för bakrutetorkaren på personbilar vilket gör det möjligt för användaren att montera personifierade skyltar i olika format. Fästanordningen består av ett fäste och en rem, där remmen spänns åt runt torkararmen och håller fästet på plats. Produktens symmetri medför att den kan placeras på torkararmar oavsett om torkararmen går vänster- eller högervarv.

Abstract [en]

This thesis discloses a bachelor degree project in Product Design Engineering at the University of Skövde. The project was performed in collaboration with a company called The Best of Sweden AB where the assignment was to develop a universal mount and signs for rear window wipers on cars.

The development process started with a prestudy where customer needs where analyzed. Different factors which affect the product in the environment of use, such as the aerodynamics of cars and the force in the rear window wiper engine, were examined as well during the prestudy. A field study was carried out on existing rear window wipers which became the basis of the dimensions of the signs as well as the mount. The result of the pilot study ended in a list of requirements that the final concept was to be compared to. Different structured design methods was used during concept generation as well as concept evaluation which was followed by a development of the details of the final concept. A proposition of material selection and manufacturing method was determined as well as an estimation of manufacturing cost.

The result was a fastening device and signs for rear window wipers on cars which makes it possible for the user to mount personalized signs if various different formats. The fastening device consists of a base mount and a strap, where the strap is tightened around the rear window wiper and keeps the base mount in place. The symmetry of the product enables it to be mounted to a rear window wiper that either rotates clockwise or counter-clockwise.
