Dyson has their own set sustainability goals that they work towards, this ensures that they are constantly improving their products in a sustainable manner.
I was tasked with the responsibility of finding a more sustainable manufacturing method to painting a component of the product. This component also had several requirements it had to fulfil both engineering, and CMF.
I researched into competitors, but these didn’t meet all our requirements. This meant I had to develop my own concept using my DE principles:
• Generating concepts through research and sketching
• Compare concepts to requirements using industry standard tools.
• Validate prototypes against set requirements.
• Analyse its sustainability and cost compared to the initial intent.
These allowed me to present my new concept to senior stakeholders as a viable option for removing paint.
My impact to Dyson can be summarised as:
• Educated others on the number of processes involved with manufacturing methods, and the impacts they carry on the engineering and the visuals.
• Started a conversation about the way we produce products and how we can be more sustainable.
• Proven the impact DE has on the environment.
• Allowed for a re-evaluation of the CMF intent.
• Escalated the urgency of sustainably within Dyson.
