DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENT OF A SUSTAINABLE LUNCH BOX, WHICH AIMS TO CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE
Authors: Maria João Fãlix, Verãnica Duarte
Abstract: Meals prepared at home are healthier than those that are purchased. So, we have been considering the possibility of offering an aesthetically appealing product whose purpose is to store, protect and carry meals, particularly meals prepared with healthy food in balanced quantities. The SIPOC diagrams were considered in the present work. The results obtained demonstrated that the SIPOC diagram plays an important role in the process definition and improvement and should be reflected firstly before the mapping process. The prototype under study triggered more positive than negative emotions in the respondents. We hope the product can contribute to future researches, both in the promotion of a strategic planning in the design of sustainable products, and also contribute to future research on the SIPOC diagram.
Keywords: Product design, SIPOC diagram, Emotional design, Quality of life, Healthy eating, Case study
