Abstract:The Function Development Shaving (FDS) department is part of the consumer lifestyle of Philips Drachten. At FDS they are trying to improve the shaving performance of a shaver by creating new or better functions of the shaver. To find and confirm an improvement, a lot of testing has to be done. One device that is used for testing is the jumpmeter. This is a measuring device that can measure the movement/jumping of the cutter of a shaving system. The results of a measurement can be used to find CTQ’s (Critical to Quality) and so improve the shaving performance of a shaver. This device has been used for several years and some problems occurred while using it. That’s why the jumpmeter needs to be improved. This is done by making the jumpmeter compatible with the current and new shaving systems and by improving the user friendliness. In this process there are three concepts designed. These are produced and tested to find the best concept.
