WHAT IS AESTHETICS?

WHAT IS AESTHETICS?  The term 'aesthetics' concerns our senses and our responses to an object.
  • The term 'aesthetics' concerns our senses and our responses to an object.

  • Aesthetics is important in competitive

point of view.

  • Visual appearance includes : shape, color, packing ,presentation etc.

  • The goal is to design products that ensures ease of use, safety and comfort from the moment one looks at it or touches it.

  • Pleasing appearance

  • Appearance should communicate the quality and function of the product.

  • Easy to use

  • Safe, comfortable and environmental product

  • Shape of product should assist the function

  • The economy of product should not be compromised a major portion on its appearance.

Influencing factors:

  • Basic type of product form- step, taper, stream, shear, sculpture

  • Materials and finishes- Ex.

Bronze finish: richer look Stainless steel appears better than plain carbon Anodizing and electroplating enhances product appeal

  • Tolerances Ex. Sliding fits

  • Noise

  • Symmetry to eye

  • Absence of sharp corners

Ex. Chamfers and fillets: safe and better look

  • Proportion

  • Contrast

  • Impression- The product should convey its purpose by its look.

  • Product style-

It is highly influenced by the kind of people it is expected to cater to.

  • Color-

AESTHETICS CONSIDERATIONS IN WASHING MACHINE DESIGN :  First appearance should be pleasing to the customer’s

customer’s eye.

  • Symmetry should be maintained as much as possible.

  • Sharp edges should be avoided or chamfered.

  • High quality surface finish always attracts.

  • Silent operation is very important to any customer.

  • Lids,knobs,drawers…. Should be user- friendly ,uncomplicated and smooth in operation.

  • Colour and Contrast should be subtle and eye pleasing.

  • Functions and Display should be bold and clearly visible ( preferrably LCD )

  • Pipes, wires, motor…other unattractive components should be well covered.

WHAT IS ERGONOMICS?

  • Science focused on the study of human fit,

and decreased fatigue and discomfort

through product design

  • It is concerned with design of system resulting in improved performance and reliability.

MAJOR AREAS LOOKED INTO BY ERGONOMICS

MAJOR AREAS LOOKED INTO BY ERGONOMICS ARE:  Human anatomy, posture and body mechanics  Anthropometry

MAJOR AREAS LOOKED INTO BY ERGONOMICS ARE:  Human anatomy, posture and body mechanics  Anthropometry
  • Human anatomy, posture and body mechanics

  • Anthropometry (measurement of human body)

  • Design of human-machine interaction

  • Human capabilities,Skills,Workload,Fatique

  • Environmental conditions on man and machine system

DESIGN :

ERGONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS IN WASHING MACHINE DESIGN :  During or after a session on the washing
  • During or after a session on the washing machine the user must

feel comfortable and his body should not feel burdened and tired.

  • During the operation the body posture must be such that it causes one the least discomfort.

  • The body should not ache especially, neck, shoulders, upper arms , back and knees.

  • Opening and closing of the lid or door must be easy.

  • Loading and unloading of the clothes in the drum must be easy.

  • There should be no discomfort in insertion and moving the hand

inside the drum.

  • The instructions on the machine should be clear and the knob should be easy to handle.

  • The display should be easily readable from all angles.
