Abstract [en]

This report presents a thesis done in the field of mechanical engineering with a focus on product development and design. The work was done together with Kongsberg Automotive AB in Mullsjö. The company wants to investigate the push button solutions available on the market today and the solutions that seem promising for the future. The purpose of this thesis is to examine what the user perceives as quality and define which solution the company should use in future products.

To make the subject less about an abstract feeling of quality a method for interviewing end users was created. This allowed their feelings about good and bad characteristics to be concretized to statistical data about characteristics and buttons tested in the study.

These statistics where then used in a product development process to create concepts from ideas. With support from an experienced professional a direction was set to create prototypes built around existing switches matching the results of the interview based study.

The result is a number of concepts for solutions, as well as 3D-printed prototypes of the more promising solutions followed by advice on which direction future research in the area should be headed.

The task was solved with several well documented methods such as Kano. With these methods, the market has been reviewed, user comments about quality have been collected and analyzed and new concepts has been created to accompany the coming trend and meet user demands.
