HOW DOES REAL LIFE MANUFACTURE
FIT INTO THE DESIGN PROCESS?

When a designer ‘designs’ a product for a client, he/she makes a number of prototypes. They are presented to the client, discussed and the design is developed, until a final acceptable prototype is manufactured.

Testing and evaluating then takes place, with the client being central and also focus groups contributing.

Modifications are then made to the prototype and a final one manufactured, in a workshop.

Mass production (real world manufacture) is then planned / organised.
