What is Design?
Q1: What was the industrial revolution? When did it occur? How did industrialisation lead to the creation of the design profession? How was industrial manufacturing different from the traditional way of making a product and what role did the designer play in creating new products?
The industrial revolution was the transition to manufacturing processes, beginning in England around the 16th century. Industrialization led to the creation of the design profession, because that was one of the only factors which allowed similar products to stand out from one another (Hauffe, 1998, p.9). This differed from the traditional way of making products, as the roles the designers play in creating new products encompasses not only the products themselves, but also the image of the entire business.

Q2: Explain what series and mass production means. What other factors over time have contributed to the high turnover and international sales of manufactured products?
Series, or mass production were explained as “not produced as single pieces but in larger quantities” (Hauffe, 1998, p.12). Over time, there have been many distribution methods which contribute to a high turnover, such as catalogs, sales representatives, and an overall increase of use of advertising.

Q3: Using your own words, explain the meaning of the term “form follows function” and its significance....
...orientation means when a designer is focused to delivering the needs and requirements of the client brief.
I’m not really sure on the Theoretical/Scientific focal point. Though I can see where the theoretical point comes from, it may mean when a designer goes through theory and history to help them out with a certain design. Though I’m not sure on the basis of the scientific point. In my years studying graphic design I haven’t really relied on the scientific aspect of design.
As for organisational/administrative, it can refer to when a designer is freelancing, and how they have to tackle invoices, payments, accounting etc.
Q5. Hauffe states: “In design ...one can speak of three basic functions of an object:
1. Its practical technical function,
2. Its aesthetic function, and
3. Its symbolic function.”
Read the section headed Design as science, and read Hauffeʼs definitions of these 3 functions. Write 3 sentences, which explain the meaning and difference between these 3 functions listed.
The practical technical function is considered as the measuring stick for the form of the industrial product. The aesthetic function refers to styling in the marketing aspect, where an attractive product plays an important role in the turnover. Lastly, the symbolic function refers to a medium of communication, the look of an object, and what it represents.
Q6. Find an image of each of the 3 following designs (Google image is good for searching):

A. 1. Budgetary items that raise concern for Competition Bikes, Inc. in the budget planning reports.
In year 9 there are several areas of concern with the budget planning report for Competition Bikes, Inc. The sales projection in units for year 9 is set at 3520. However, only 3423 bikes were sold. The sales budget has projected, for year 9, revenue from sale of $5,247,450 million that is showing a 3.2 % growth in sales. However, in year 8, Competition Bikes, Inc. is coming off a year where the company lost 15 % in sales, the economy just turn bad, and the sponsorships have pulled some of their funding for professional riders to buy bikes. In comparison to the previous years, Competition Bikes, Inc.’s sales will continue to decline. A 3.2% increase in sales is not an accurate representation of Competition Bikes, Inc.’s future sales.
Other expenses of concern are advertising, administrative salaries, and executive compensation. Advertising is a concern as the company budgeted 2% of gross profit for previous years 6, 7, 8 and is budgeting 2% for year 9. The company should increase advertising to increase profits by bringing in more buyers. The company had just turned bad and therefore it should increase its advertising budget more than the previous years as it will need to increase its sales.
The executive compensation...

Task two is the second task that applies the results of the Marketplace
Simulation. In my simulation I named the company Airborne. I used a very
conservative approach in all four quarters. The company did not have to
borrow any money or pay any carrying charges for inventory. I did however,
lose sales in all quarters due to higher than expected sales and product
demand. Loss of sales can cause ill will and can cause you to lose customers
permanently. However, the increased demand can also create a sort of frenzy
to get the product that is not available such as with Apple and the first I
phones. In my simulation, I chose Travelers and Mercedes to focus on. Several
times the company ranked high with Workhorse as I continued to focus on
Travelers and Mercedes.
Each quarter of the simulation, I adjusted my decisions based on what
had sold the previous quarter, how much money I had to work with , what
other brands were doing and how their sales were doing. I focused on the
smaller, high market segments and geographic markets in the middle of the
cost/continuum. The company’s competitive posture was to build a specific
market position and defend it while providing the most reliable product on
the market. When companies start out cheap, their reputation is that of
building cheap products and that image is hard to shake. What is LG now used...
...undistinguished and their primary feature now is that they have clearly had to accommodate the living of too many people for too many years-and they are tired.1
The extract clearly tells the readers that they have been living in the house for a very long time while the family is getting bigger as well, making the house unaccommodating for all of them. This means that they have been stuck up in poverty since they started their life with that house. Whilst, it might also means that some African-American have been under poverty since they started living in the US. In the 1950s, the Civil Rights and Social Reform started to arise. African-American began fighting against racial segregation and discrimination because most probably “they are tired.”2 Hence, the social group is a reflection of the economic and social issues that exists in 1950s, a sad reality that comes along with what they referred to as the ‘American dream’.
Dreams and aspirations were also one of the main themes that Hansberry explored in this play. Every character has their own set of dreams—Walter is decided to make “a business transaction that’s going to change”3 their “life”4 and Beneatha desired “to be a doctor.”5 These aspirations reflect the dream of the African-American to improve their socio-economic situation in general. However, dreams were almost unattainable during that time for the African-
American, thus each character’s frustrations and problems also evolve on trying to...
...Task Two: Nutrients, energy and requirements (P2, M1)
Knowledge of the sources and functions of different nutrients is essential to understanding the relationship between food and health.
Create a handout for your peers, that describes the characteristics of nutrients and their benefits to the body (P2).
Create a second handout that discusses the similarities and differences in the nutritional and energy requirements of two groups of individuals (M1).
Proteins are key components in a diet because all the cells and all the tissues in the body contain protein. Protein is there to help people’s growth and repairs the body from damage. Proteins are made up of amino acids. Meat, poultry, milk and fish contain protein and all the essential amino acids. Proteins can be from plant sources such as rice, wheat, corn and beans these proteins do not contain all the amino acids needed. If you do not get enough protein in your diet then you might not grow properly and your body will not be able to repair itself when you are ill or if you get injured.

This article (chapter of a textbook) provides generalized information and descriptions the mechanisms of AOM, along with a host of information about other conditions that are not pertinent to this inquiry. It does appear to provide supporting research to aid in diagnosis and treatment of AOM and mentions the objective of watchful waiting as a possible option in the text and within the treatment...
