Model making design
Model making is divided mainly into three areas: functional, prototype and design models.
Functional models provide the essential and characteristic features of a product. They are used during the development of the design, to check and develop new and innovative functions. With the help of these exact experimental setups, the functional units are verified.
Prototypes correspond to the end product optically and functionally. Due to the haptic handling of the detailed prototype, the product can be tested for user friendliness, material, form and function before the start of production.
Design models are produced for presentations at fairs or in showrooms in a detailed and scale-appropriate manner. These simulate complex functions in a simplified way and give a perfect impression of the design and the core functions of the original product.
The scale of a model can be chosen freely. Larger models with a high level of detail are offer for trade fair appearances. Smaller models in travel-case format are ideal for customer visits and consultations.

simplify the understanding of design Glossary
Design and functional development of a user interface. Interface is a part or an act, in which a person makes contact with a machine or a product. The simplest example therefore is a light-switch: it‘s not part of the person, neither part of the machine (light), but an interface between. For being useful and important for persons, the interface should be based on human needs and skills. If you look at it systematically user interface belongs to the „Man Machine System“ (MMS): Man ↔ Man-Machine-Interface ↔ Machine. Different sciences are focused on that theme, e.g. informatics, the Cognitive Science research and psychology. The basic knowledge for user-friendly interface design is developed in design and ergonomics. The specific field of activity is Cognitive Ergonomics, System Ergonomics and Software Ergonomics (usability engineering).
