Product Design Product design defines the appearance of the product, sets standards for performance, specifies which materials are to be used, and determines dimensions and tolerances. (Russell & Taylor, B. W., 2017, pg. 160). The planned product design is for luggage with state of the art software that has gps, bluetooth, charging ports, electronic locks, smart battery and a durable outer cover. This product will be very affordable when competing with other brands in the industry. It will also save people time from not having to buy and put indivdual trackers to on each piece of luggage. The product design will featue these steps, idea generation, feasibility study, form design, fuctional design, production design and final design and process plan. Idea generation deals with the understanding the customer and their needs. The ideas generation for this product will come from the salesforce, Research and Development department, researching competiors’ products and new improvements. We will use reverse engineering to look for design features that can be incorporated into our product. (Russell & Taylor, B. W., 2017, pg. 161). The SC 1 and the SC L by PlanetTravler is leading the way with this product design. The SC 1 is the World’s smartest suitcase with advanced features including robotic biometric lock, global tracker, digital lift-less weighing system, smart battery, bluetooth audio phone, proximity sensor / anti-theft alerts, and full system diagnostics that you control through your smart phone with the Planet Traveler APP. (SC 1, 2018).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
