End-user Product Testing in Sport Health and Wellbeing
The Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre is a new development at Sheffield Hallam University that brings together a wide range of research disciplines to focus on technical innovations in sport, health and wellbeing. Our research professionals have great experience in working with businesses on research and product development projects and are delivering this two-day workshop on end-user product testing in sport, health and wellbeing.
The workshops are run by the Sheffield Innovation Programme, an initiative to assist SME's in the Sheffield City Region with business development and growth.
The workshop will be delivered in two sessions from 10am to 4pm on Tuesday 19 September and Tuesday 26 September 2017.
Who are the workshops for?
This workshop should be relevant to companies that undertake product development where human interaction and/or performance is important to the products function and success.
What will the workshops deliver?
- Gain insight into the process of designing a test programme to measure aspects of product performance.
- Understand and apply methods for collection and storing data.
- Learn principles of data analysis, interpretation and effective visualisation.
The workshop will help you understand and how to put together an effective and efficient testing programme for your product.
How will I learn?
The workshops will offer a stimulating mix of lectures, discussion, and hands-on practical learning. We would encourage you to bring a live or expected product test scenario to work on through the workshop. On completion you should become more confident in undertaking in-house user-product testing, or in commissioning and managing others.
The programme is for businesses based in the Sheffield City Region and places are allocated subject to eligibility. Limited places are available and both days must be attended. Only one place will be allocated per business.
