3)Evaluation

Target Market: This product uses centrifugal force to take out the water from umbrellas so it meets the target market. (1 out of 1)

 

Functions: This product is going to be kept in areas where it is rainy and if you spin the rod the product spins therefore taking out the water. (1 out of 1)

 

Materials: Because I do need saws to cut and glue guns this meets the need. (1 out of 1)

 

Ergonomics/ overall sizes: The size of the product is notified to be 43cm of height but might change due to change of sizes. (0 out of 1)

 

Manufacturing processes and quantity: This product is notified to be made once. (1 out of 1)

 

Equipment/ tools- requirements: I might need some materials such as the glue gun and saws but I might not need other things such as the engineer square. (0  out of 1)

 

Maintenance Requirements: This product is made out of plastic so it will be light. That is why it doesn’t meet the point. (0 out of 1)

 

Product life span and life cycle: The product is made out of plastic and it will not die out fast and it meets the point. (1 out of 1)

 

Aesthetic appearance (Shape, color, texture): The shape of the product is an upside down cup. The color of the product is semi-transparent and the texture of the product is going to be hard but smooth because it is made out of plastic. (1 out of 1)

 

Quality Assurance: This model is scheduled to have quality assurance once in 3 months. (1 out of 1)

 

Quality Control: All of the quality controls are scheduled to be held. (1 out of 1)

 

Cost: The cost of this product is going to surpass 15-20TL because it is not going to be made out of materials that I can find and because I have to buy them. ( 0 out of 1)

 

Time scale and planning: It will take approximately 40 hours and this meets my point. (1 out of 1)

 

Health and safety: This product has a lot of dangerous sides and I doubt that I can cut all of the sides off so this does not meet the point. (0 out of 1)

 

Weight: People think that plastic is light but it isn’t very light at all. It might surpass 10 kg. (0 out of 1)

 

TOTAL POINTS: (9 out of 15)

2) Evaluation

Target Market: The target market for my product was people who live in rainy places and my product benefits those people. (1 out of 1)

 

Functions: If you turn the lever, the water comes out of the umbrella. Therefore, it fulfills the function. (1 out of 1)

 

Materials: I note that I will need to cut dowels with saws but this design is made out of 100% plastic. (0 out of 1)

 

Ergonomics/ overall sizes: The drawing states that the height of this product is going to be 24 com. (0 out of 1)

 

Manufacturing processes and quantity: This design is scheduled to be made once and therefore it fulfills the point. (1 out of 1)

 

Equipment/ tools- requirements: I might need some saws and materials such as the steel rule but I might not use all of the tools. (0 out of 1)

 

Maintenance Requirements: This product is light; however, it has a clip on to the wall that makes it to not fly off. (1 out of 1)

 

Product life span and life cycle: I stated that this product should be reusable. I think that it is because it is made out of plastic and plastic lasts long. (1 out of 1)

 

Aesthetic appearance (Shape, color, texture): The shape of the product is not an upside down cup although it is smooth and see through. (0 out of 1)

 

Quality Assurance: This product is scheduled to have quality assurance every 3 months especially because it can fall from the wall. (1 out of 1)

 

Quality Control: Every point of the quality control is going to be held while making my product and is scheduled to. (1 out of 1)

 

Cost: The cost of this product will be more than 15-20 TL because Plastic costs a lot and I have to buy a lot of the materials. (0 out of 1)

 

Time scale and planning: This product will take less than 40 hours because all I have to do is glue things together. (0 out of 1)

 

Health and safety: My product is unlikely to have dangerous sides because it is made out of plastic. (1 out of 1)

 

Weight: Since plastic is heavy it will probably weigh about 5 kg because the design is smaller than the first design. (1 out of 1)

 

TOTAL: (9 out of 15)

RESULT: Both are (9 out of 15) in terms of the specification.
