  • Abstract This paper briefly reviews a range of well-known design methods and describes how they can be strategically combined in groups to assist the re-design of a safety harness for tree workers. The grouping of the design methods has been presented as a formalised design strategy which considers four key stages in the design process. The authors propose that the strategy can be successfully applied to re-design a specific class of products for which the term ‘established semi-technical… CONTINUE READING
