Abstract [en]

This thesis is done during the spring semester 2017 for the Bachelor of Science in Innovation and Design programme at Karlstads University. The contractor of the thesis project was 3TEMP AB, based in Arvika, Sweden. 3TEMP has a vision that with a new type of product they will be able to establish themselves on a new market, the domestic market.

 They have plans on a coffee machine that can be integrated into new bought and currently existing kitchens. The company already have solutions to how the product's main function should operate, what is needed is a concrete concept.

 The purpose of the project has been to produce a concept on an integrated coffee machine that guides the user to proper use and simplifies maintenance. In order to achieve this, the design process has been used. The design process included a preliminary study, idea generation, concept development, concept evaluation and finally construction.

Based on the client's requirements, what has emerged from user interviews and market analyzes, a product specification has been produced. The requirements of the product specification was certain measurements, the product must be user friendly, product self cost and 3TEMP's existing brewing mechanism must be applied.

 

The idea generation has been conducted together with classmates and other students who studies innovation and design. The people chosen for the idea generation are all involved in the product development process and are familiar with the methodology used.The ideas that emerged from the generation have been combined with each other in different designs. The ideas combined have been compiled into several concepts that then were evaluated using an elimination matrix, relative decision matrix and a criteria weight matrix. The final selection of concept was made by the contractor.

 

The definitive concept include elements from the contractor's design of their existing products, in order for the product to suit the company's identity. The chosen concept has been tested with physical models to ensure that 3TEMP's existing technology should fit in the design and that all dimensions are correct. A more detailed model was made, as well as a CAD model to visualize the concept. A sectioned image created in CAD displays the layout of the product.

Rendered images of the product were made where the product is seen integrated in a kitchen.
