Apply Design Thinking for Product Innovation* (24 HOURS)

Apply Design Thinking for Product Innovation
*This is a non-WSQ module.
Co-organised with: PALO IT



"Apply Design Thinking for Product Innovation" is created in collaboration between A*STAR SIMTech and PALO IT, a renowned digital technology & innovation consultancy headquartered in France.

Participants get the opportunity to tour SIMTech's Model Factory and/or Innovation Factory for this course.




A*STAR Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and PALO IT have jointly developed a unique and immersive “Apply Design Thinking for Product Innovation” course that covers in-depth the essential design thinking elements of discovery, synthesis, ideation, prototyping and validation. Participants will learn and apply design thinking principles in the form of hands-on prototyping activities within SIMTech’s experimental labs. This 24-hour course serves as an intermediate level entry into the design thinking space.

COURSE INTRODUCTION

Design thinking as a methodology and its application in the form of state-of-the-art product prototyping techniques can save vast amounts of investment when exploring new ideas in the fields of product innovation. The process of design thinking is green and sustainable, as an emphasis on the prototyping and user-validation stages ensure that the products generated will have market traction. Participants can expect dynamic, engaging and insightful sessions full of real-world case studies led by certified Design Thinking coaches and UI/UX (User Interface/User Experience) designers. Participants will learn how to generate an innovative, consumer-oriented strategy that minimises the risk of bringing a new product to market by developing deep insights and rapid prototyping skills through a 5-step methodology of:

  • EMPATHISE
  • DEFINE
  • IDEATE
  • PROTOTYPE
  • TEST


Participants will learn to use software to model the product concepts and use a 3D printer to create prototypes. They will also learn about product engineering requirement and Design for Manufacturing & Assembly (DFMA).

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • All Industries which relate to new product design / development or service design / development
  • Individuals with prior design thinking knowledge seeking skills improvement and knowledge enhancement in the fields of design thinking, product design and innovation
  • Product Engineers / Product Managers
  • Mid-career switchers
