Tidig produktutveckling av en kompakt diskmaskin (Swedish)
Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete har utförts på primärutvecklingsavdelningen för diskmaskiner på Electrolux

AB i Stockholm, Sverige. Huvuduppgiften har varit att ta fram det fysiska utseendet och

lösningar för två delar till en ny kompakt diskmaskin, dörren och en komponent som på grund av

sekretess inte kan nämnas.

Examensarbetet har varit en del av ett större projekt där uppgiften har varit att ta fram det fysiska

utförandet av koncept som varit på idéstadiet. Arbetet har utförts enligt Electrolux arbetssätt:

Product Management Flow (PMF) där huvudtanken är att ta fram produkter som motsvarar

kundens önskningar och problem.

Under arbetet har kunskap om konsumenterna och tekniska aspekter såsom

diskmaskinskomponenter och material samlats. De två komponenterna har sedan delats upp i

mindre delproblem. Utifrån denna kunskap har sedan otaliga idéer arbetats fram för vardera

komponentens delproblem. För dörren har detta resulterat i två koncept gjorda i

Catia

där

ritningarna är klara för att göra prototyper i SLS (3D-modeller i sintrad nylon) med fungerande

rörlig mekanism, dämpning, lås och självöppning.

Abstract [en]

This Master’s thesis was performed at the Primary Development Dish Care Department at

Electrolux Major Appliances Europe, Stockholm, Sweden. The main objective of the thesis has

been to study the feasibility of possible solutions for the door of a new dishwasher.

This thesis has been a part of a bigger project and the task has been to develop different product

concepts and design a physical solution addressing the feasibility of the concept. The work has

been performed according to Electrolux’s working process: Product Management Flow (PMF)

with an intention to develop products according to the customers’ wishes and problems.

During the work knowledge about the consumer, technical aspects of dishwasher components

and materials have been collected. For the door and its components, sub problems have been

identified. On the basis of this, several solutions have been proposed for component’s sub

problems. For the door this has resulted in two concepts made in

Catia

with drawings ready for

prototype making in SLS (Selective Laser Sintering, 3D models from CAD files) with a working

moving mechanism, dampening, lock and self-opener.
