dc.description.abstract The object of this thesis is to explore the design requirements of a modular and automated mobile workstation, and conceptualise it by exploring product design principles. During the thesis, a dynamic market survey has been conducted to explore existing competition and understand the user requirements for such a product. A thorough study was conducted to understand the rise and fall of open offices in the professional work environment and its relation to individual productivity. Engineering design principles such as Structure Sharing and Modularisation were effectively explored and utilised during this thesis. Structure sharing as a concept was used to explore sharing that occurs in the organisational structure of an industry providing shared services to the customers. AirBnB, a global shared-hospitality service provider, was used as the primary case-study for this purpose. An approach has been made to understand modularity and inclusive design, and find a common ground to apply the concepts of product development in the field of large-scale distributed construction. The results of this research can now be used for the conceptual design of a workstation for diverse users, by applying structure sharing at an organisational level, as studied for case specific services in this thesis. This design can then be evaluated for resource effectiveness using existing design methodologies or can be used to develop new methodologies. en
