Whose System Design – Pillow
Apply the concepts of ‘Whole System Design’ and ‘Life Cycle Assessment’ to a product and/or service of your choice in order to redesign for meeting one or more UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). Your choice of product/service must be agreed with the lecturer by Week 5 to ensure no duplication with other students.
- Define the problem by looking at the whole system – draw and describe this going as broadly as you possibly can
- Conduct a life cycle assessment to work out the priority areas within the product/service that you are going to redesign.
- Brainstorm solutions by looking at the whole system. Describe your innovations here.
- Compare your possible strategies against cost, performance, environmental and social impacts.
- Describe what you may need to take this strategy forward – materials, technology
