Learning outcomes
This Design Laboratory is multidisciplinary - meaning it includes contributions from various integrated disciplines - in order to teach the problems linked to developing new designed complex products starting from the internal components and their connections.
The laboratory leads to a single exam. It lasts for six months.

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of the course, the students will have:
- Ability to start up and develop, with a solid systemic methodology, a design survey to configure a complex product starting with the prioritised definition of its basic components;
- Ability to consider each existing mass-produced article as an interrelated and complex system of components;
- Ability to manage a project survey to configure a complex product;
- Ability to disassemble, really or virtually, a complex product and then define its basic chart of function;
- Ability to outline the flows of energy, matter and information that flow from one component to another;
- Ability to reconfigure:
-> The product starting from the knowledge of the territory in which it will be used so that the instrument he valorize the material culture and is integrated in the enhancement of the system of micro/small business;
-> The relational system components coming to its final definition taking into account the maintenance work, the interchangeability of parts, disposal at end of life and the relationship with the context of use and the environment.
- Ability to define goals, contents and phases of the design of the components system;
- Ability to reconfigure the relational system of the components and reach its final definition bearing in mind the maintenance interventions, parts replacement, disposal at the end of its life and its relationship with the context of use and environment;
- Ability to elaborate new economic-productive-distributive models;
- Ability to communicate, clearly and effectively, and to discuss the elaborated proposals and display a familiarity with different communication techniques (written, oral, graphic).
