Abstract:In this bachelor assignment a draft proposal has been made for a 30 body scanner. The assignment is executed for the company Recreate. Recreate is a software company which core business is the development of applications regarding Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality. Recreate observed that more and more customers order clothes online instead of buying it in a physical fashion shop. At the same time, a big problem for the online retailers is the enormous amount of clothes being returned. This practice costs them a lot turnover. According to this problem statement, Recreate decided to build a solution: a 30 body scanner. The 30 body scanner can be described as a 'virtual fitting room'. Consumers should make once a scan of their body. From this scan, sizes of the body can be derived. The consumer can give web shops permission to use this data to filter in an easier way for suitable clothes for the customer. An additional development is an option to fit the clothes 'virtual'; the customers can fit a set of clothes on their personal generated 30 model. Recreate already designed a prototype of the scanner. Technically it works, but the prototype is not suitable yet to sold as a mature product. Therefore , in this assignment a draft proposal has been made for the design of the scanner. This is done by answering the following research question: What is the most suitable design for the final concept of the 30 body scanner? For finding an answer to this question four phases are passed: the analysis phase, the concept development, the detailing phase and evaluation phase. In the analysis the prototype is analysed, which encompass an investigation of the functions, interaction with the user and the technical components. Other analyses which are executed are: a stakeholder analysis, a target group analysis, a competitor analysis and a context analysis. In combination with the prototype analysis and research into relevant legislation, the analysis phase resulted in a list of requirements. The conclusions, findings and list of requirements, founded during the analysis phase, form the basis for the concept development. In this phase a concept for the scanner is established. The concept includes the system structure, control, power supply, appearance and maintenance of the scanner. Finally, to map possible failures of the system a Failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA) is executed. In the detailing phase the concept, resulted from the concept development phase, is further defined. Through an iterative process partial solutions are found for the different aspects of the concept. The result is a final concept which suits the set of requirements. The founded draft proposal is durable and relatively easy to set up. Besides, the concept meets all the relevant legislation and is user-friendly. The draft proposal is provided in the added figure. Initially it should be a design for the total scanner. However, during the research it became clear a changing room is needed, because the users should stay in underwear in the scanner. Therefore, instead of only the scan room, a combination with a changing room is part of the proposal for the final setup. This final setup is not designed yet, because this should be done in cooperation with the customer. Since this enables the customer to adjust the design to the style (of the interior) of their shop. In order to implement the product, the technical part of the scanner should be fine-tuned. Improvement should be made in the cabling and maybe some parts can be better replaced. This also applies to the housing of the product. More research should be done to suitable production methods of the different parts.
