How We Work
Approach & Goal
For the next-gen UnaSensors, here are 2 goals by aligning with Sales & Marketing:
• New form factor based on new requirements
Offering an aesthetic housing which can be applicable to new specs that differ from the past.
• Modularization and customization
Providing custom appearance service according to brand identity through modular design.
DEFINE THE MARKET /
Through a brainstorming led by Product Manager, we exemplified the potential scenarios for applications that we might focus on. And to understand who are our customers, including their needs and wants.
The target market was categorized into 3 main segments and relevant use cases as follows:
Go further, we also compiled relevant pain points based on some feedback from Sales on our existing product to sort out the factors and concerns (orange color).
WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE /
New spec of the button
Then for the hardware side, we should sort out what we expect from our new button. And started building form factors based on these key product features:
Producing good results in low cost unit
Water protection for semi-outdoor applications
Long battery life
Replaceable batteries for minimum 2,000 clicks
Display message status sent by click type
Connect with optional accessories
(reed switch, pressure sensor etc.)
Clarify and express new ideas
Developing product architecture
To generate a proper housing, I have developed several shapes for discussion. According to Product Manager, the new product is not expected to be much larger than the existing one. That is why we chose C-2 to meet the goal as closely as possible.
Regarding the lighting, I have made some prototypes to experience the real size and position to avoid being blocked by finger. I found the circular style has the highest visibility. But considering the cost of market position in terms of sales, we chose the classic style C-2-d as our design feature in the end.
