Design for X


During the design stage, attributes are often attempted to maximized through specific focuses.  This usually arises when a specific point needs to be emphasized in a product.  For example, if Lego’s are being manufactured in a kit, the focus there would be designing for assembly in a way that allows for users to intuitively know that each block snaps onto another.  Below are a couple of focuses that may need to be emphasized and how they can be looked at through the lens of increasing the sustainability of a product.

-Design for Manufacture
