2designCycle-en.png DESIGN



The Design section of the Design Cycle is where you sketch several different possibilities to solve the design problem. Then explain why your chosen design, the one you will create, is the best.

You need a range of alternative designs for the product/solution.

All design ideas need to be evaluated against the Specification

Good quality drawings. Fully Annotated showing:
    • Materials
    • Parts
    • How it works (Function)
    • Design features
    • Ergonomics (Design for Use)
    • Aesthetics (Form)
    • Construction techniques

  • Justify your final choice of design.

Examples

Here are some examples of student work.They may look slightly different from how we do things at TIS, but they can give you a good idea of what is expected.
They have not necessarily achieved the highest level but the level achieved has been included when available.
Please click on the project name to read the background for each example so that you understand more about what each student was attempting.

'Junk' Project


This work achieved level 3 because the student:
  • generates a range of designs (8 in total, 3 only are shown in the extract)
  • analyses their advantages and disadvantages
  • chooses one design and explains the reasons behind this choice.
The student would have achieved a higher level if she had fully evaluated the chosen design against the design specification.

Steady Hand Game Project


This work achieved level 6 because the student:
  • generates a range of feasible designs (6 in total, 3 only are shown in the extract)
  • evaluates each idea against the design specification
  • justifies the chosen design and fully evaluates it against the design specification.

Battery-operated Lighting Unit Project



This work achieved level 6 because the student:
  • generates a range of feasible designs (5 in total, 4 only are shown in the extract)
  • evaluates each design against the design specification
  • justifies her choice for the final design and evaluates it against the design specification.
