Abstract:The aim of this bachelor final assignment was to design and realise a steel goal/basket combination for playground manufacturer Speelmaatje B.V. from Spankeren. Speelmaatje wants to expand their collection of own made wooden playsets with own steel outdoor sport equipment instead of relying on external suppliers. The design of the goal/basket combination has been divided into several phases. In the first phase, an analysis has been conducted on the current range of goals, baskets, combinations and multicourts. The market has been analysed in several aspects like the current range, the construction, the prices there has been given attention to failures in other designs to create extra awareness of the future design. In this phase also the stakeholders, the audience and the general use of existing goal/ basket combinations has been analysed. Because of an extensive regulation and legislation in this area, research has been conducted on the most important standard in the field of outdoor sport equipment, the EN-15312. The analysis was followed by a process of brainstorming, sketching and design studies. The challenge was to find a form that contains aspects like appearance, playing value and sturdiness. At the end of this phase a form has been selected which has served as base for a concept development and the product specification. In the concept development choices has been made regarding the use of materials, the form and the connections between various components. At this stage also decisions has been made regarding the use of color and finishing methods. The product specification has been conducted in order to get the product ready for manufacturing. All details got worked out, all dimensions are defined and the product is fully modelled in Solidworks. Drawings has been created using Solidworks and in the end delivered to steel construction company ‘Van Pommeren’ from Veenendaal. This company will provide the manufacturing and finishing of the first goal/basket combinations. The end result of this bachelor report is a design and realisation of a steel goal/basketcombination. The design emphasizes playing value for the younger, a good appearance of the combination and sturdiness. This is reflected in a combination that has a rearwards backside and a rolled top. The rear and top of the goal contain pressed grating and on the side round bars will provide shot stopping. By integrating the basketball hoop in the back of the goal and the parallelism of the basketball pole with the goal consistency is created. This results in a real combination and not two separate products.
