For my DT coursework I've been building a desk and I've just got onto the last objective which is evaluation, I'm having problems coming up with more than 3 different tests though. Here are the ones I've come up with: Place artificial loads/ weights on the desktop to simulate monitors, my desktop, my dad's desktop, me leaning against the desk, a printer and a laptop, I overestimated all of the values by 1-2 kilograms each to allow for upgrades or just changes in hardware (like the possibility of a water cooling loop in my PC, probably won't happen but just in-case, the other desktop's not staying long anyway so that's weight saved). Something to test how long cables need to be: Ball of string, take it from where the monitors would be, route it around the side of the desk to come up behind the PC cases, leave a fair bit of slack to allow for case/ monitor movement and prevent undue strain on the ports on my GPU. Comfort: Sit down at the desk and work on it for a bit, simple enough. I could also see if it fits in with the room I'll be using it in but that would require me to take it home and back to school which ain't gonna happen + I don't know where it's going anyway). I'm gonna need more than one page of A4 on this though so can any of you guys think of other tests I could use to find out the functionality of the desk? I'll probably have to acknowledge you in the folder as well but meh, if you want to be acknowledged go for it, if not your ideas are still welcome.
