D-Tool has been created to help support decision making during the design of products. The tool employs a product assessment spider web with eight indicators that draw attention to key considerations for the evaluation of concepts and re-design of existing products. D-Tool is a card based toolkit which highlights factors required for appropriate product design. This will be used in parallel with Human Centred Design and Design Thinking methods.
