Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
There is a huge range of work clothing on the market today that is designed for various professions with varying functionality requirements. Snickers Workwear, one of the leading brands in the workwear industry in Europe, has however identified both need and a lack of supply regarding work trousers especially designed for electricians. Electricians have a physically demanding job, which makes it necessary for their work equipment, including clothing, to meet certain requirements regarding both design and function. The purpose of this project has been to develop a pair of work trousers especially designed for electricians, by order of the Snickers Workwear at Hultafors Group AB. Focus has been laid on the design, function and location of pockets of the trousers, and that these will ease and improve the use and storage of tools and other equipment in a safe and ergonomic way.A pre study was performed in the beginning of the project, followed by a concept phase that included a study of ergonomics for electricians with focus on their work positions, movement patterns and storing of tools. In order to develop and generate new ideas within the project, a workshop was held with staff from Snickers Workwear. The ideas with the greatest potential was identified through a selection process and brought further into the concept phase, and by testing and building models the ideas were further developed and put together into one complete concept. That whole concept was then thoroughly analyzed with focus on both design and function and the final design and functions were illustrated in both drawings and functional prototypes. Finally the project resulted in a model of customized work trousers especially designed for electricians, with complementary braces, which regarding both appearance, function and comfort aims at creating more favorable and ergonomic conditions for every electrician's daily work.KEYWORDS: Ergonomics, storage, tool kit, holster pocket, dump pocket, cable tie holder, leg pocket, rips band system, electricians braces, basic wear, electricians trousers.
