3/21 - REVIEW

CORE TOPIC

3.1 -- conceptual modeling

3.2 -- graphical modeling

3.3 -- Physical Modeling

3.4 -- Computer Aided Design

3.5 -- Rapid Prototyping

ESSENTIAL IDEA/OBJECTIVES

  • conceptual model originates in the mind and its primary purpose is to outline the principles and basic functions of a design or system. 
  • Graphical models are used to communicate design ideas  
  • physical model is a 3D tangible representation of a design or system
  • computer aided design is the generation, creation, development, and analysis of a design or system using computer software. 
  • Rapid prototyping is the production of a physical model of a design using three dimensional CAD data 

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Something fun for a few minutes...
    • GO over the answers together.
  • Talk about PAPER 2 (good news -- there is some choice) and selecting the right question to answer in Part B. 
    • Then we'll specifically look at some Topics 5, 6, and 3 assessment
    • This is be a test grade for those topics

CLASS ACTIVITIES

  • Check of the FOLDABLES 
  • Create a Microsoft Sway (you can find it after you long in to your Microsoft 365 account)
    • Working in groups of 2-3
    • Codega will assign you a topic and a group
    • Play around with Sway -- it's actually sort of interesting and lends itself to a review project.
    • You must incorporate images as well as text
    • Again, everything must be based on the middle column of the guide (concepts and principles and guidance)
    • When it's done share with john.codega@richlandone.org 
  • We will present next class.  I will have a graphic organizer for you to complete for each topic.

HOMEWORK

  • Reading notes for TOPIC 3 are due Next THURSDAY!
  • Finish the SWAY...

  • Price calculator https://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/financial/price-calculator.php  
  • Here is what the May 2017 Subject report had to say about Part F:
    • It is difficult for candidates to provide details for every conceivable cost which would underpin a selling price for their product but they need to be realistic about the major and minor costs. Many candidates just focused on costs they could quantify for the production of their prototype and then assumed that scaling up production would reduce costs by a fixed percentage and hence create an early break-even point. These candidates then went on to suggest many possible promotion strategies without any assessment of the cost implications. A significant number of candidates decided that the price would need to undercut the competition to be successful but there was no evidence from the previous sections to show that the product could be produced and marketed cheaply enough to justify the price. Astute candidates stated in Criterion E if the product would be self-manufactured or produced by license and who would bear the costs for promotion and launch to market. These candidates went on to gather research from manufacturers or retailers about how they would recommend promoting the product and whether it would form part of a range. In this way evidence for Criterion E and Criterion F is linked as the volume of production is decided and the market segment(s) identified for the initial launch phase. 
  • 2018 Suject report said:
    • Criterion F Most candidates referred to strategies gleaned from studying topics 5 & 9 in the Subject Guide but not many candidates effectively applied the knowledge to the specific market conditions for their new design. Few candidates took into account the cost implications of their strategies and the need to keep costs tightly under control until it was clear the product was successful and production could be increased. There was a tendency for candidates to produce a list of wide ranging generic strategies from the use of social media to TV advertising without appreciating the implications of such strategies. It might be helpful if candidates were exposed to a few case studies of how new products were launched to market in order to make them think more clearly about what is feasible. For example, James Dyson was already quite a successful inventor/innovator when he decided to produce the first of his cyclone vacuum cleaners into an already crowded market. He decided to launch the product initially on the Japanese market as Japanese consumers had a reputation for being early adoptors and being concerned about pollution/health, plus the economy was strong. Dyson decided his vacuum cleaner would be coloured pink (modification for Criterion ā€˜Eā€™) to make it stand out from the rest on the shop floor. After a successful launch phase in Japan Dyson decided to expand production to sell in the UK but he produced another version in the more subdued colours of yellow and grey which he deemed more appropriate for this segment. 
  • If you choose to go the Social Media route then you need to consider:
  • You can also pay google to move your product website higher in search results
  • Or you can place an add on YouTube
  • If you choose commercials on TV 
    • What network/time slot/specific shows will you try to advertise on?
      • Must be related to your target audience!
  • For pricing -- you MUST show your work on how you arrived at a price.  Look at last class for more info on how to arrive at one!
    • Also if you plan on using psychological pricing make sure you EXPLAIN WHY you made it $whatever.99

    • Start to put together a list of possible testers (remember what we talked about with the subject report -- TRY TO FIND AN EXPERT!)
    • Create your testing plan -- remember -- questions for the client, other users, and experts are all going to be different.  Try and make sure you are able to cover your Design and Marketing specifications! 
      • The more feedback you get the easier part D will be to write!
