Abstract:The modern contemporary art company Paco Raphael wants to launch a design clock. For this purpose, they have come up with a concept. The concept looks the part, but it doesn’t function yet. Furthermore they do not know how to produce it. The purpose of this bachelor assignment is to work out the concept to determine the functions the clock should contain and how it can be produced. The research goal is: “Redesign a design clock for functionality and production”. To do this, a target group and function analysis were executed. This gave an idea of the functions the clock had to inherit. These functions were tested in multiple prototypes. The goal of these prototypes was to examine which components should be used for the corresponding functions. After a study of the casing production, the separate prototypes have been merged. Which has led to a fully functional end prototype. The final prototype has proven that the concept is feasible. And given an insight in the obstacles on the way to product launch. The biggest obstacle left is the production of electronics. After this stage, the company no longer has the knowledge to further develop the concept and is advised to seek an external partner with knowledge about electronic consumer products.
