Purpose and goal

The purpose of the project was to optimize the design solutions from the previous project stages in TOR regarding material, assembly and acoustics. The purpose of the process was also to enable a more rational material chain, a simpler and more self-instructive assembly of the modules, and improve noise absorption and deviation of the various structural elements in TOR.

Expected results and effects

During the specification, it became clear that structural parts between the TOR module and the basic structure and between the TOR module and the ceiling are key elements in achieving several of the objectives above. Therefore the parts was developed so that they that can be used both for both purpouses, rationalizing both the material chain and the assembly. The transition to standard profiles for glass mounting has the same rationalization effect, lowers the price and makes the supply chain safer. The prototype will be the basis for improvements for pre-production series to come.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been run according to plan. Project management has been carried out by IMCG´s administrative resources based on regular project management tools. Activities in the field of global analysis, communication and business modeling have been carried out by IMCG´s internal expert resources. Prototype specifications and prototype development have been carried out by IMCG, by Watteriet and by external expert resources. The work in the project has been conducted in a number of parallel processes with reconciliation pointsin workshopa and meetings.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
