Development of product design projects applying specificaions and factors matrix (SFM) as a support tool in higher education
Resumen: The application of work strategies taking into account, from the initial stages, all the factors in- volved in the product design process is considered essential by the researches to generate higher quality products, assess users’ needs and anticipate design problems. This paper presents two approaches of design project development, denominated respectively: projects with imposed spe- cifications and projects with derived specifications and proposes the use of the matrix that inte- grates specifications and design factors (SFM). This design support tool complements others al- ready used in the development of product concepts by higher education students, increasing the capacity of synthesis and structuring of information in order to facilitate decision-making into the design process. Its elaboration implies understanding of objectives, identifying of factors and es- tablishing of specifications. At the same time, it aims to foster the reflection process and an inte- grated information analysis. The application of SFM and its contribution to different project ap- proaches are shown in this paper
