    Abstract [en]

    During the spring semester of 2017 a product development project has been carried out by two Design Engineering Students, Eva Henriksson and Sofie Johansson, in cooperation with Kinnarps. Kinnarps is a company who develops and sells furniture for public environments and as they are now focusing on the development of how educational spaces are formed and furnished they wanted to develop a height adjustable student desk for pupils between the ages of 10 to 16.

    To be able to reassure whether the correct customer requirements were identified and fulfilled in the right way QFD – Quality Function Deployment was used and analyzed as a part of the project. The use of QFD during the pre-study included, amongst other things, the execution of interviews and observations of users and the target group, performing competitive analyses, looking into trends , evaluate and weighing the importance of different needs and translating those into measureable specifications.The pre-study showed that needs like mobility, flexibility, simple adjustment and that the table should be as quiet as possible were the most important ones.The concept generation phase started by identifying and evaluating different options of height adjustment mechanisms. Creativity methods were used to generate ideas on how different parts of the table could be constructed. The generated concepts were then evaluated and screened continuously by looking on how well they fulfilled the customer requirements and through user tests and feedback from the target group.

    Two concepts remained before the final selection. The choice between these two concepts were based on to which extend each of them fulfilled the customer requirements. The final design of the table fulfills the requirements that were set and fits well into the educational spaces as they are formed today and how they probably will be designed in the future. The functionality that were requested by the users have been fulfilled while the table still has a unique and appealing look.
