Construction Sets

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search

For OSE, the general approach is to build Construction Sets for machines, not specific machines. When a Construction Set approach is taken, our designs can yield an infinite number of machines and variations - based on a small set of modules. This is like creating a lifesize LEGO set for building just about anything. This applies not only to mechanical devices like the tractor, but also to housing or power electonics - and any other physical device. The key is approaching a design problem with multipurpose functionality and Scalability - as afforded by the modular approach. Modularity is key to an effective Open Source Product Development platform.

In terms of sequencing - how do you develop multiple products at a time? You start with modules common to multiple products, and then you design specific products from these modules. Marketing and sales in this approach should follow the design of the product line - as opposed to following the design of the first product. This is because the product ecology informs design decisions for the whole product line. Modules are optimized for the product line, not for individual products. In other words, we are optimizing the modules for the contstruction set of products, not for individual products. There may be point losses in performance, but integrated performance (social, environmental, technological) will be significantly improved.

For example, for the 3D printer, designing for 6 different size printers all at the same time - using frames cut out as nested pieces from a flat piece of steel - allows us to achieve 0% material waste in frame material. If we designed only for one size printer only, we would end up with over 80% material waste using our current production engineering. In this case, the Construction Set Approach allows us to achieve eco-friendly production (zero waste).


Broadly speaking - the Global Village Construction Set may be broken down into these different Construction Sets:
