Application

This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to generate design solutions in response to a particular design need.

It applies to individuals who generate concepts and solutions in response to a design challenge in any industry context. The starting point may be an open or closed brief; a spontaneous idea; modification of an existing product, service, process or system; or a point in an ongoing design process.

This unit builds on BSBDES201 Follow a design process, and places greater focus on research, concept generation and collaboration with others as key aspects of the design process.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.
