Design within industry is an important sector. Designs need to fulfil a number of criteria in order to be safe, cost-effective and successful. Many designers will work with engineers to make sure this is the case for the products that come out of the process. There is also the issue of environment and sustainability which are prevalent in industry. Designs need to be environmentally friendly and able to be reproduced in ways that aren’t going to put a strain on resources.
In order to design a sufficient industrial solution, the designer first needs to understand the sector and the problems that are being faced. The designer’s job is then to solve these problems through their design. They need to make sure the design is especially robust when working in this demanding area. It also need to be cost effective to produce, especially if it need to be produced in large volumes.
