to address a brief.

 


Assessment Definitions:

Undertake development to make a prototype to address a brief involves:

  • selecting and using materials and/or components
  • selecting and using tools and equipment
  • applying practical techniques and processes to make a prototype
  • Evaluating the prototype in terms of the fitness for purpose of the outcome for its intended physical and social environment.
  • Undertake development to make a refined prototype to address a brief involves:
  • Trialling, to inform selection and use of materials and/or components
  • Trialling, to inform the selection and application of practical techniques and processes.
  • Undertake development to make a justified prototype to address a brief involves:
  • trialling the prototype to gain evidence of the its fitness for purpose in its intended physical and social environment
  • Using evidence, including stakeholder feedback, to make a judgement of the prototype’s fitness for purpose.

STUDENT TASKS

This assessment activity requires you to select and use resources to develop a prototype, and then evaluate the prototype to determine its ‘fitness for purpose’ within the physical and social environment that it was designed for.

A prototype is a working version of a technological product or system.

Fitness for purpose refers to the ability of a prototype to fulfil the requirements of the brief when placed within its intended location.

You will be assessed on how well you demonstrate the ‘fitness for purpose’ of your prototype within the physical and social environment that it was designed for. Evidence of this demonstration will be seen within the technological practice you undertake when developing and testing your prototype. This evidence includes:

Trialling, to inform the selection and use of materials and/or components

 

Trialling, to inform the selection and application of the practical techniques and processes used to construct/assemble your prototype

 

Final testing, including consideration of stakeholder feedback, undertaken to determine the ‘fitness for purpose’ of the prototype within its intended location.

 

This is an individual assessment task. You have 10 weeks of in-class and homework time to complete this task.

 

THE BRIEF

 

Bags and Carriers

You are to design and develop a bag/carrier for a special client, (main stakeholder) that can be used for everyday or for a special occasion.

Specifications for the bags/carriers will be defined by both yourself and your client. (These should include things like style, type, material/fabric, fastenings, shape and size etc.)


THESE NOTES ARE HERE TO HELP YOU

complete the task set.

                                               Research and trialling

Begin this assessment task by re-reading, teacher provided brief, and your refined version of this brief. Review and refine, if necessary, the conceptual design that you developed in response to the brief.

When developing the prototype of your food product, you will need to focus on three aspects. These aspects include trialling and selecting:

Materials and/or components, for example: testing different fabrics/materials to find out which is most suitable to use for your prototype.

Tools and equipment, for example, machines, cutting devices and methods of finishing in order to achieve a high standard for your clients food product.

Techniques and processes, for example, jigs, patterns, moulds, templates etc. Testing different joining methods to see which is the most appropriate to use for the design of the bag and the best materials selected for use.

 

Fitness for purpose

When you have completed your prototype you will need to evaluate its fitness for purpose against the final brief. This means you will have to trial your prototype to test its functionality and social acceptance within the environment that it was designed for. This will also require you to gather stakeholder feedback about the appropriateness of your prototype.

Note: if your prototype cannot be trialled within its intended environment then you should try to simulate the conditions of the intended environment as much as possible when conducting your trials.

The physical environment refers to the place where the final outcome will be situated.  The social environment refers to those who will interact with the final outcome.

A prototype is a finished technological outcome that is yet to be fully implemented.  It is developed through technological practice and is reflective of relevant codes of practice.  Prototyping is the trialling of the prototype to gain evidence for the evaluation of the outcome’s fitness for purpose in its intended physical and social environment.

Fitness for purpose refers to the outcome’s ability to address a brief when situated in its intended location.  The brief used for this standard must include a conceptual statement and specifications.


Hand in for assessment:

 Your completed prototype

 All of your evidence of trialling materials and/or components, tools and equipment and applied practical techniques and processes and the consequent decisions made about their use

 Your final evaluation on the fitness for purpose of the prototype.
