A*STAR Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and PALO IT have jointly developed a unique and immersive “Apply Design Thinking for Product Innovation” course that covers in-depth the essential design thinking elements of discovery, synthesis, ideation, prototyping and validation. Participants will learn and apply design thinking principles in the form of hands-on prototyping activities within SIMTech’s experimental labs. This 24-hour course serves as an intermediate level entry into the design thinking space.
Participants can expect dynamic, engaging and insightful sessions full of real-world case studies led by certified Design Thinking coaches and UI/UX (User Interface/User Experience) designers. Participants will learn how to generate an innovative, consumer-oriented strategy that minimises the risk of bringing a new product to market by developing deep insights and rapid prototyping skills through a 5-step methodology of: EMPATHISE, DEFINE, IDEATE, PROTOTYPE, TEST
Participants will learn to use software to model the product concepts and use a 3D printer to create prototypes. They will also learn about product engineering requirement and Design for Manufacturing & Assembly (DFMA).
