“Bringing a Product to Market” covers the design process of a consumer product from ideation to pre-production of a new product.
The course teaches the consumer centered design process through lectures and the creation, engineering, and prototyping of a novel product. Students learn to identify and evaluate a problem (opportunity), create, develop, test (with consumers), and
select best prototyping strategies for their product.
Basic project and risk management, engineering, and analysis skills are used to deliver a robust working product on time and on budget. Students are assumed to be competent in basic problem solving skills.
