Abstract [en]

Transporting pianos is not an easy task, as they are as valuable and delicate as heavy and bulky. The most extended methods seem to have room for improvements, from maneuverability aspects to worker’s ergonomics. This project aimed to develop an innovative concept that satisfies the needs of both piano owners and moving companies through an organized concept development process. The methodology and tools were selected consciously to fit the problem and reviewed afterwards for learning purposes. Ideation and selection methods were systematically applied to come up with the proposed concept, which was improved further in SolidEdge ST4. Finally, some recommendations for future development of the product were suggested.

Abstract [sv]

Att transportera pianon är ingen en lätt uppgift. De är såväl värdefulla och känsliga som tunga och skrymmande. De främst använda metoderna kan förbättras, från manövreringsaspekter till arbetarens ergonomi. Detta projekt syftar till att utveckla ett innovativt koncept som motsvarar både pianoägarens och flyttföretagens behov, genom en organiserad konceptutvecklingsprocess. Metoder och verktyg valdes medvetet för att passa problemet, och granskades därefter i utbildningssyfte. Konceptgenerations- och selektionsmetoder tillämpades systematiskt för att komma fram till det föreslagna konceptet, vilket ytterligare förbättrades i SolidEdge ST4. Slutligen förelås några rekommendationer för framtida utveckling av produkten.
