Concept Generation

After mapping out a washing machine in the current design analysis, concept generation begins. During the concept generation phase, several brainstorming methods were used to generate new ideas and new redesign avenues for a washing machine. Using the brainstorming methods taught at UT, we were able to come up with over twenty new possible designs for a washing machine. The types of brainstorming used were 6-3-5, Mindmapping, Individual Brainstorming, TIPS, and then a final round of brainstorming using successful design possibilities.
