Development of a product that simplifies coupling of trailers (English)
Abstract [en]

This thesis was conducted at SverigeGrepen in Vänge-Körlinge, Uppsala, Sweden.SverigeGrepen is a family business that develops and manufactures a few different parts of different kinds of products. My task is to come up with a good idea that facilitates the coupling of trailers, i.e. from an idea to a fully functioning prototype. The product is intended for use by all customers for all kinds of trailers. The actual goal of the work is to develop a full prototype that you can install and use in the easiest way possible, a prototype that follows the specifications. To understand the structural design of a trailer, different parts of it were studied, plus that the different user requirements specifications were specified, even the coupling methods that are already in the market were studied and understood.After being done with the study, started the ideas and concept generating. Different ideas of good methods someone can use to back up a car to a trailer and connect it, or in reverse, to move the trailer to the car instead, and the total were seven different concepts. The method used to develop concepts were particularly brainstorming. Then to go ahead with one of the developed concepts and determine the one that went on for prototyping, a concept selection matrix were used. Where the requirements were the specifications determined in the study.The result became drawing documents of a product that meets the specification requirement and purpose of the product. The drawing documents were submitted to one of SverigeGrepens companies called ‘KP welding and forging’, but the prototype was not completed within the framework of the thesis.
