Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this work is to evaluate how a docking station can be more future proof, environmentally friendly and satisfy the customers’ needs more. The docking station in focus of this project is owned by LVI, and used with one of their cameras MagniLink S. When comparing the results of the new docking station and the current docking station, the new docking station is more future proof, environmentally friendly and satisfies the customers’ needs more. In the end it is established that following steps should be followed during the development of a docking station:
- Make sure that the cables are reliably fastened into the docking station and that the connectors can handle the docking force.
- Design to use more material with lower environmental impact and ensure that the material fulfils the product requirements and objectives. Use as small amount of material as possible.
- Prioritize the customers’ expressed and unexpressed needs as one of the highest priorities during the development process.
