Attribute Analysis

Attribute analysis is a technique which may be used to develop new concepts or designs for familiar products. Students used the chart below to create a unit that is made from Pine that holds 40 C.D's that is designed for the kitchen and may be spray painted. The C.D's may be stored in pull-out trays and the whole unit may be sold for £40.
You can use Attribute Analysis to help you to create a list of specifications for a product.

The information below has been extracted from the cognitive chart in this lesson concerning the compact storage unit. It has been used to make an Attribute Analysis Chart.
