  1. 1. Evaluating the Effects of Variation on Product Appearance through Visual Robustness

    Author : Karin Nordvall; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; product experience; visual quality appearance; visual sensitivity; optical quality; industrial design; perceived quality; craftsmanship; robust design; non-nominal visualization; geometrical variation; visual robustness;

    Abstract : For consumer products where the product appearance plays an important role in meeting expectations, the visible effects of manufacturing variation can have a negative influence on the product experience. A concomitant of mass production is that no manufactured units are exactly identical, as a result of variation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Embodied Pedagogical Agents: From Visual Impact to Pedagogical Implications

    University dissertation from Institutionen för designvetenskaper, Lunds Tekniska Högskola, Lunds universitet

    Author : Magnus Haake; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; masculinity; role modelling; cognitive styles; stereotypes; education; pedagogical implications; visual style; virtual characters; visual design; Virtual pedagogical agents; femininity; gender; androgynities;

    Abstract : Embodied pedagogical agents – visually represented, computer generated characters in pedagogical roles, such as virtual instructors, mentors and learning companions – populate the digital society in increasing numbers. They are found in educational programmes from preschool to university, as well as in broader educational contexts in the form of medical counsellors, virtual health coaches, information guides, etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Visual replenishment methods in manufacturing industry and suggestion for a decision tool

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Stefan Eriksson; Mauro Onori; Stig- Arne Mattsson; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; materials supply; replenishment methods; visual; selecting methods; decision tool;

    Abstract : In almost all supply chains, materials need to be stored or buffered, implying that manufacturing companies need effective replenishment methods. However, this is challenging, since companies must balance inventory costs and customer service in complex and different situations. Therefore, it is important to choose replenishment methods carefully. READ MORE
