    • Abstract
      Mobile applications have exploded in numbers and in popularity in recent years. With the growing ubiquity of smartphones, this trend will likely continue for years to come. How can design thinking help in creating mobile apps? To answer this question, the organizer draws from both academic research and industry practice, and shares practical insights from his current work in designing and developing mobile app. The applicability of design thinking starts with opportunity discovery and extends well into the design process and touches upon team dynamics and interaction quality, in recognition that the human being is the instrument of innovation. Using the design thinking approach, the organizer has been part of creating several consumer mobile applications, including a social, photo.sharing app called, PhotoTribe (currently available on the Apple AppStore). During the workshop, the organizer provides a systematic view of the role of design thinking in creating mobile apps from start to finish.

    • Abstract
      The Envisioning Use technique is a half-day workshop technique in which members of a product development team come together to create a 'shared vision on product use'. This is a common understanding of who future users will be, under which circumstances the product will be used, and which user experience or usability issues will be targeted for these use situations in the product development process. Our research in design industry has shown that the Envisioning Use technique provides a means to successfully create such a shared vision on product use, which in turn has a positive influence on team decision-making with regard to product use. As such it is a very useful technique to connect user centred design methods to actual product development processes. In this workshop we provide hands-on experience with the Envisioning Use technique as well as an opportunity to reflect on how to further integrate this in product development processes.

    • Abstract
      All products experience variance. Whether it be variance due to production tolerances, due to imprecise assembly, or whether due to external disturbances such as temperature change and vibration, it is the designers' job to produce concepts that are insensitive to these variance through 'Robust Design '. However, it is the case that very few design engineers use, or know or any robust design methods, and as a consequence pass on unfeasible tolerance demands to the production department. The public/customers experience poor design robustness in terms of, product launch delays, product recalls, reliability issues and product quality loss. However, many of the robust design issues take affect within the company in terms of low production yields, slow production ramp‐up times, late design changes and emergency commitment of R&D resources to firefight the design reliability issues. The Robust Design Methodology (RDM) provides the designer with quick and simple tools to be used at all stages of design, from the first design sketch to the final detailing and tolerancing. As well as being an aid to the engineers and designers, the RDM is also useful for Managers giving some quantifiable indicators of the current state of the reliability of the design. Furthermore, these indicators are leading indicators and thus it is possible to monitor the development and reliability of a product from the very early stages. Contrast this with current indicators of reliability such as production yield, which are only available once production has begun and the cost of design change is very high.
