Abstract [en]

In 1929 SCA (Svenska Cellulosa Aktiebolaget) was formed and today SCA is a global company that produces and sells absorbent hygiene products, packaging solutions and publication papers. The company’s products can be found in most households such as: Toilet paper and kitchen towels, napkins and handkerchiefs, baby diapers, panty liners and incontinence care products are found in most homes. SCA has about 50,000 employees in some 50 countries. At the beginning of June 2005 two students, Karolina Andersson and Johanna Sahlstedt, began their thesis work at SCA in Mölndal. The path began with the mission to investigate public washrooms to find a visiting frequency for a “high traffic washroom” and based on the investigation define proper size and design criteria for a new series dispensers. After an extensive information-gathering phase all of the information that was found was gathered to get a straight description of the products function. The key was to describe needs and functions without specifying them too much to avoid narrowing the product at that point of the thesis work. The next step along the path was to generate different concepts for evaluation. The concepts advantage and disadvantages were discussed. During concept selection the concept that best satisfied the needs, product specifications and Tork brand values was chosen: HT single. The HT single series is a well-designed and reliable dispenser series. For decades, Tork has pioneered the development of dispensers. Today’s range reduces over-consumption, ensures hygiene, prevents theft and adds to interior design. The basic work of today’s brand Tork is illustrated in the HT single series. The HT single series is designed for high traffic washrooms and will easily cover for 1000 visitor per shift (eight hours). The HT single series consists of: toilet paper dispenser, soap dispenser, hand towel dispenser and waste bin.
