Generation of idea for product innovation in design course

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This study proposed a set of techniques that can be utilized for the identification of students' perceptions toward generating ideas to produce innovative products. The sample of this study consists of 56 engineering students from the Department of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), who have taken the Mechanical Engineering Design (KKKM 6034), Design Project (KKKM 4955), and Product Design (KKKP 4274) courses. Statistical analysis revealed that students preferred to use methods to obtain more ideas by means of reading; observations and interviews; and using integrated ideas technique that combines the creating ideas techniques and the screening ideas techniques. The results indicate that, among nine creating ideas techniques, Morphology Analysis, Brainstorming and Mind Mapping, have very high application frequencies. While Quality Function Deployment (QFD) and Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), have very high application frequencies in among nine screening ideas technique. Students' perception revealed that the techniques applied have applicability in providing information for the design process, describing ideas in more detail, as well as generating a wider diversity of ideas.
