Abstract [en]

This report was written as a result of a Bachelor Degree Project at the School of Technology and Society at University of Skövde, first semester 2007. The assigner was Tibrokök in Tibro, Sweden. The commission was originally to design a sliding door concept for kitchen. Later it was expanded to also include bathrooms.

During the feasibility study of the project Internet was used as an information source. Kitchen brochures and magazines were ordered from different companies to give inspiration and ideas. A wide range of products from both Tibrokök and their competitors were examined through phone calls, visits and interviews. Because the final products would have to be manufactured by Tibrokök it was also important to know about the company’s resources. The factory was therefore also visited during the feasibility study.

A design specification was written together with Tibrokök. This was to work as a control document during the project. To simplify the making of the design specification, a design brief and an objectives tree were first made. The design brief summarizes the commission and goals. The objectives tree helps to clarify all the requirements.

With the design specification as a foundation, the period of idea generating was started. During that period a number of creative methods were used to enhance creativity. Methods used were: 6-3-5, brainstorming and collective notebook. Some simple mock-ups were also made to help with three-dimensional thinking.

The next step, after the period of idea generation, was to develop the ideas further into concepts. Firstly a selection of ideas had to be made. The remaining ideas were then developed into concepts. The best concepts were then, during meetings with Tibrokök, selected for further development. This procedure was repeated several times. All changes made were recorded into the design specification.

The final result was four products: two bathroom cabinets, one room divider and one show case. Prototypes were made of the bathroom cabinets and room divider. All products were also displayed with rendered computerized images.

At the conclusion of this report a discussion is given, where the design group members give their opinion of the project, the cooperation with Tibrokök, the final products and what will happen after the project.

Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport skrevs i samband med ett examensarbete i integrerad produktutveckling vid Högskolan i Skövde våren 2007. Uppdragsgivaren var Tibrokök och uppdraget bestod i att utveckla nya skjutdörrskoncept för köksmiljö. Uppdraget utvidgades senare till att innefatta även badrum.

Till en början, och igenom hela förstudien, användes Internet som en stor informationskälla. Kökskataloger, vilka gav idéer och inspiration, beställdes från olika köksföretag. Med hjälp av telefonsamtal, studiebesök och intervjuer undersöktes konkurrenternas och Tibroköks sortiment. En annan viktig del av förstudien var att undersöka företagets resurser eftersom tillverkningen måste kunna ske i Tibroköks befintliga maskinpark.

Efter förstudien upprättades en designspecifikation tillsammans med företaget, vilken skulle komma fungera som ett styrdokument igenom hela arbetet. För att förenkla skapandet av designspecifikationen gjordes först en designbrief, där uppdraget och målsättningen kortfattat beskrevs, och sedan ett kravträd, där i stort sett alla krav fanns representerade.

Med designspecifikationen som underlag inleddes idégenereringsfasen. Under fasen användes flertalet kreativitetsmetoder för att underlätta och öka kreativiteten. Metoderna som användes var 6-3-5, brainstorming och kollektiv anteckningsbok. Det byggdes även flera enklare mock-ups som underlättade det tredimensionella tänkandet.

Steget efter idégenereringen var att vidareutveckla idéerna till koncept. Denna process inleddes med ett konceptval av de idéer som framkommit under idégenereringen. Därefter utvecklades de valda koncepten vidare för att återigen genomgå ett konceptval och så vidare. Under tiden hölls en nära kontakt med företaget. Alla ändringar som gjordes resulterade i nya krav som fördes in i designspecifikationen.

Resultatet blev fyra stycken olika skåp: två varianter av badrumsskåp, en rumsavdelare och ett dekor-/väggskåp. Till badrumsskåpen och rumsavdelaren byggdes prototyper och dessutom gjordes slutgiltiga renderingar till alla skåpen.

I avslutningen av rapporten återfinns en diskussion där produktutvecklingsgruppen resonerar kring projektets upplägg, samarbetet med företaget, de slutgiltiga koncepten och även tiden efter projektets slut.
