IntroductionINTRODUCTION TO DESIGN THINKINGDesign thinking is a problem solving methodology with Human Centered approach. It is cyclic process with various phases but includes lots of iterations at each phase. It is Human centered, iterative, collaborative and experimental process.
IMPORTANCE OF DESIGN THINKINGDesign thinking is generally defined as an analytic and creative process that engages a person in opportunities to experiment, create and prototype models, gather feedback, redesign. Several characteristics (e.g., visualization, creativity) that a good design thinker should possess have been identified from the literature. The primary purpose of this article is to summarize and synthesize the research on design thinking to (a) better understand its characteristics and processes, as well as the differences between novice and expert design thinkers, and (b) apply the findings from the literature regarding the application of design thinking to our educational system.
The authors’ overarching goal is to identify the features and characteristics of design thinking and discuss its importance in promoting students’ problem-solving skills in the 21st century.1.3:TEAM BUILDINGOur team members are Chisla Ignesh , Keyur Chodvadia , Gajjar Abhishek, Gheewala Zenil, Parekh Manisha.

Full of new ideas to be implanted.LOG BOOK AND ITS IMPORTANCEA log book (or a simple book) is a record of an important events in the management, operation and navigation over project .The logbook enables us for work to be repeated for re-evaluation of the reported result. The steps that lead to success or failure of large project can be extracted. This exercise will ensure to some extent the novelty of idea as well as enables us to understand ongoing work in the field and relevant to over work.
2.EMPATHY MAPPING2.1 Observation through AEIOU and other methods.Interview techniques shows the type of questions that are asked for knowing the system thoroughly. The question can be related to the system or about the domain area of the system.
Knowing the perfect answer of those question can greatly be beneficial for the system even the known and unknown facts to be implemented on the system which can make the system perfect on its basis.2.2 Role playing OWNER :He is responsible for the success and failure of the company.EMPYLOEE : people working in the production management system.MANUFACTURING PEOPLE : people involved in manufacturing process.GO DOWN OWNERS : they look after the storage of the goods.CUSTOMERS : they are the main users of the manufactured products.2.
3 Interview TechniqueSometimes there are problems faced by the system and its people when it comes to be an active part of the system, which can be the best part to solve all problems related to it, and would result in the best thing. Thus, for the system to be perfect, one must offer many observations. The observations are done by various techniques like questionnaires, interview etc.
After performing the questionnaires round, we get the strong point that what should the system be? What types of products should be added? Which person should be kept active according to the session? What type of modules need changes? How can the authentication be provided to the people? After performing this analysis, we get the only solutions that are to be made active and to be executed.2.4 Mind Mapping(Data analysis).A mindmap is a diagram used to visually organize information.
A mind map often created around a single concept, drawn as an image in the center of the blank landscape page, to which associated representation of ideas such as images, words and parts of words are added. Major ideas are connected directly to the central concepts, and other ideas branch out from those. A mind map is a graphical way to represent ideas and concepts. It is a visual thinking tool that helps structuring information, helping you to analyze, comprehend, synthesize, recall and generate new ideas in a constructive way.2.5 AEIOU Summary frame work. 2.
5.1 A – Activities. The activities are designed to give the solution of various problems related to over domain. These activities are goal directed and these are the modes people work in and wants these activities to be carried out properly and efficiently.
