Engineering Prototype Station
Objective: Design an electronic workstation to meet the needs of the various users of a station, specifically engineers and technicians.
Research: The first step was to conduct an analysis of the existing workstations on the market. Another critical element was to collect actual user data, both from surveys and use analysis. It was also necessary to research pertinent anthropometric data.
Process: Design criteria were developed from information obtained during the research phase.
Once the research and methodology were complete, I started sketching concept ideas.
Scaled paperboard concept study models further explored workspace ideas.
Concepts evolved after exploring component details.
Final design sketches...
Final Design: All design criteria were realized and the original objective was fulfilled. Users will be happy with the upgrade!
Project completed for senior thesis spring 1995. The final model was built using foam core.
