Abstract

In the educational context different design activities can be used to introduce distinct design skills. In the paper students undertook the design of a cordless handtool by addressing a wide range of functional attributes and design rationale. Experience with this project suggests that case studies provides a suitable activity for students to explore and understand product functions and other design activities. The analysis has indicated paucity in understanding the significance of product design specifications and design rationale among students and therefore suggest more intensive training.
