Abstract

The paper describes how the industrial design (ID) process takes place in relation to other product development activities. Also, this article presents specific steps industrial designers follow while designing a product. We refer to the different examples to explain essential ideas such as: the shape of an object should follow its function, the benefits of investing in ID, the quality of the ID effort for a new product, the importance of ID to a particular product.
