logoWelcome to User Profile

Introduction

Choose 3 user groups that will use your product. Later these groups will be interviewed by you and after you have made your project they will evaluate your project.

Choose some sensible groups, teenagers, children that link well to your project.

User or Client Profile
A very important aspect of any Product Design folder is a sheet that clearly identifies the client. This is normally the person who has commissioned you with designing and making a product. It will probably be the person you are design for, such as a customer.

On the User Profile template, you need to include some details about your customer. An example is seen below and includes suggested subtitles to a variety of short sections.

The example I am giving you is a client who is a professional guitar player who needs a special, individual, handmade guitar.

I suggest you do two or even three user groups i.e. Teenagers, Middle aged and one more.

Use these headings and read the example given below.

GENERAL INTERESTS
Jeff has an interest in playing a range of musical instruments including the electric guitar. He writes music and enjoys listening to modern as well as classical themes.

The band are based in Stockport, North West England. They play in venues around the North West ranging from Manchester to Cumbria. They playing local venues because it is more convenient.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF DESIGN REQUIREMENTS
Jeff needs a new electric guitar. He insists that it must be one of a kind and hand made. The materials used must enhance the sound quality. It must be lightweight but this must not compromise the overall quality of the guitar.

WHY COMMISSION MY PRODUCT?
Jeff's old guitar is in need of repair. As it is soon to be his 50th birthday he has decided to commission a handmade guitar. He has given me the opportunity to design and make the guitar because he has seen my other work.

COST LIMITATIONS
The cost limitation is £300 to £400 pounds. Jeff is prepared to increase the funding slightly, given good reason. Jeff would prefer the cost did not exceed to upper limit.

OTHER LIMITATIONS
The guitar must the manufactured largely from exotic woods such as zebrano or purpleheart. The weight must not exceed acceptable and must not exceed 15 kg without good reason. The best quality electrical components must be used.

TIME SCALE/ALLOCATION
I have been given a start date of September 2008. The guitar must be finished by March 2009. The client has requested regular meetings to view and discuss progress. There will be a financial penalty if I miss the completion date.

DESIRED PRODUCT OUTCOME
Solid body, High gloss finish, 2 x humbucker, 1 x single coil, 5-way pick up selector, Volume control, Tone control, Tremolo bridge and tremolo arm, Pearl effect fret markers, Truss rod and Metal machine heads.
