Abstract [en]

This bachelor’s thesis is a mechanical engineering project done in cooperation with Swedish Innovators. The aim of this project has been to develop and design a waste sorting system in order to enhance the waste sorting process.

After the first meeting with the client, it was understood that the product needs to be developed in aspects like design and functionality to make it suited for marketing. A number of demands was also established, in order to ensure that the redesigned product will fulfil its purpose.

The project started with a product definition process that included studying existing products, search for relevant articles and a survey research to gather customer needs and ideas. After defining the product and gathering all possible information regarding the subject, a number of customer requirements were gathered.

A number of concepts were generated according to the customer requirements and four of them was chosen by the client and the student for further development. And in order to choose the best concept of the four, selection matrices were used.

The result of the project was one concept that satisfied almost all the requirements. The concept contains three main parts: a frame, a drawer and a container. The concept fulfils almost all the established demands by the client like ergonomic design and easy to install and assemble. After assembling the concept, the user should have a product that contains seven parts: one frame, two drawers and four containers, and the product should enhance the process of waste sorting with its practicality and ergonomic design.
