THE DESIGN SPECIFICATION - MEDIA STORAGE

V. Ryan 2007

 

Having asked all the important questions, the designer can now write a design specification. The specification is a list of factors that the design must satisfy. This information can be used when drawing ideas, to ensure that all the clients needs are considered. The designers specification is seen below.

 

 

 
1. The storage unit must hold at least 50 DVDs and CDs
2. It will be easy to use - DVDs can be stored away without much effort
3. It will be possible to add additional units to accommodate more DVDs or CDs.
4. The overall size of the DVD holder / storage unit will be 400mm high, 250 mm in depth and 350mm wide.
This will mean that it will fit on an average coffee table or cabinet.
5. The storage unit will be as light as possible so that it can be moved to a different location easily.
6. It will be manufactured from cheap manmade materials such as MDF and finished with a veneer so that it looks expensive.
7. It will cost a maximum of twenty pounds to manufacture.

At this point other points may be added such as;

8. It will be safe to use as it will not have sharp edges. It will satisfy British and European safety standards.
9. It will be made from recycled material where possible.
10. It will be manufactured in a range of colours/shades.
11. It will be possible to add lockable doors so that the contents are secure.
