Product Design Concept Evaluation by Using Analytical Hierarchy and Analytical Network Processes
Özsoy, Hüseyin Özkal ; Yılmaz Özsoy, Çiğdem (Middle East Technical University, Faculty of Architecture, 2018-10-22)
The aim of this study is to improve the success and efficiency of the design concept evaluation and selection activity in industrial design by adapting two specialized evaluation-selection methods to the design process and comparatively demonstrating their use. The methods are called the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) and the Analytic Network Process (ANP). In their application, first the main design objective is decided upon and the evaluation criteria are determined accordingly, followed by the listing ...

Product-oriented material testing and FEA for hyperelastic suspension jounce bumper design
Caliskan, Kemal; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Unlusoy, Y Samim (2010-01-01)
The basic problem in the finite element analysis of parts made of hyperelastic materials is the identification of mathematical material model coefficients. Furthermore, selection of a suitable mathematical hyperelastic material model may not be straightforward. In this study, a design methodology is presented for hyperelastic suspension jounce bumpers. The commonly used traditional trial-and-error method for jounce bumper design results in high mould costs for prototype production and prolongs the time requ...
Product experience and luxury values
Yardım Şener, Sevcan; Şen, Güzin; Pedgley, Owaın Francıs; Şener Pedgley, Bahar; Murray, Gillian (null; 2016-01-01)
Designing for luxury is a challenge since it requires knowledge on the concept of luxury and how to transfer this knowledge to product design. Literature on the concept of luxury offers a variety of definitions of the term and discusses the role and meaning of luxury by referring to particular disciplines such as economics, sociology and marketing. These studies occasionally touch upon aspects that are associated with luxury products; however there is no specific research that provides guidelines or framewo...
Product Induced Home Accidents: A Search For Safer Designs
Hasdoğan, Gülay (1992-1-1-2)
Designers usually begin the design process with some presumptions about the potential users or the consumers which aid them in-making predictions about the final product’s interaction with its user. Such presumptions may finally turn out to mismatch the actual usage. In specific usage environments, as in the home, where the user is untrained, the evidence of the outcome of mismatch is often readily observable. Accidents can be thought ofas examples ofsuch mismatches. Causes ofan accident may indicate to a d...
