mce came to FIT with a need to create their new Mobile Care Expert Zone device. The design had to take inyo consideration many challenges such as being operational in a demanding retail environment, being able to connect to every device and various cable types. The process had to incorporate both custom and off the shelf components.
We started by defining a clear shape that any service representative could operate and understand without any difficulty. One of the main demands and challenges was to keep the design almost anonymous but still desirable. By defining the representative main user scenario, we sharpened the shape in a way that wouldprevent any human errors such as connecting the cable to the wrong socket.
After all of the design elements were set in place, we moved onto the mechanical design. In order for this product, which was defined by the client to be produced in tens of thousands, to be simple, not only in shape but also on the production line, we designed snap fittings and other various mechanical features. The result was an easy, time saving assembly.
