[Solved]Draw the main life cycle stages of your selected product, showing the connections between each life cycle stage. Clearly indicate which of the two specified products (a cooker or a television) you have selected for this TMA.

The task
YOU WILL NEED TO SELECT ONE OF THE FOLLOWING PRODUCTS TO COMPLETE THIS TMA:

a cooker (hob and oven)
a television
You are expected to support your answer to all parts of the TMA using block concepts and external resources, which you should clearly reference.

Part 1: Product life cycle (15 marks)
Draw the main life cycle stages of your selected product, showing the connections between each life cycle stage. Clearly indicate which of the two specified products (a cooker or a television) you have selected for this TMA.

On the same diagram identify five environmental impacts of your selected product and show how these connect to the different life cycle stages. An impact may connect to more than one life cycle stage.

Part 2: Design for sustainability (15 marks)
Based on environmental impacts you have identified in Part 1, describe three design strategies that could be applied to your selected product (the cooker or the television) to improve its environmental performance. Describe each design strategy, explain which environmental impact(s) it responds to and briefly discuss how the design of the product might change as a result of addressing environmental issues.

(up to 300 words)

Part 3: An innovation landscape (30 marks)
i.Research your product (e.g. the cooker or the television) and the need(s) it meets in order to complete an Innovation landscape matrix (ILM), summarising key sustainable innovation issues in each matrix box.
Note: The Innovation landscape matrix (ILM) is described in Section 2 of Unit 4 and is downloadable from the Assessment page of the website. It can be printed out with all the questions for each box of the ILM shown together. The questions in each box of the ILM are indicative of the sort of information that may be found in that area of the matrix.

ii.Using the research undertaken to complete the ILM discuss the environmental and social sustainability issues found in three of the boxes of the ILM that represent material things, people and context. For example, you could select the box that represents product and material things; the box that represents systems and people; and the box that represents service and context.
Use external sources and block concepts to support your response.

(up to 600 words)

Part 4: Opportunities for sustainable innovation (40 marks)
Identify three new opportunities for sustainable innovation based on the research undertaken to complete the innovation landscape in Part 3. One idea should be a product innovation, one should be a service innovation and one should represent a system innovation. You are encouraged to use visual materials to support your ideas for sustainable innovation. Each sustainable innovation idea should be given a `title` and you should describe its:

box location on the Innovation landscape matrix (e.g. product/context)
potential customer/audience and the need(s) it meets
key functionality
use of technologies, materials and infrastructure
contribution to sustainability.
Ideas for sustainable innovation can be self-generated or build on the work of others. Please ensure you reference the origin of any innovation ideas and/or images that are not your own.

(up to 750 words)

Any external sources (text or illustrations) and module concepts must be referenced. You have so far used the OU Harvard referencing style for your text submissions. You will notice that it is not so easy to use the Harvard format to clearly reference your Innovation landscape matrix in Part 3 so we recommended that you use a numerical style of referencing here instead. This uses a superscript number as the in-text citation on the matrix and connects to a full reference of the same number that is written under the matrix. Further information on numerical referencing can be found in the Library.
