ABSTRACT
This report gives a detail information of pf design process taking topic
“Application of bagasse”. The main objective of our project is to develop and
upgrade applications of bagasse and making it more effective and efficient for
industries.
In this report with the help of AEIOU sheet, Empathy canvas, Ideation canvas,
and product Development canvas we have tried to give over view and best
information about the application of bagasse in different industries in
manufacturing of different products.
AEIOU sheet it generally gives idea about environment, persons related to
products, activities done by us to gather information and persons we interacted.
In this with the help of mind mapping a chart can be drawn for merging all in
one.
Empathy canvas contains the experience of team members and persons we
interacted.
The product development canvas gives introduction to the purpose of product
development, product experience, features etc. here, product is a system which
is developed and their disadvantages are solved.

INTRODUCTION

1.1 INTRODUCTION T DESIGN ENGINEERING:

Design engineering is a process of developing new products and solving
problems by human centered approach. It is cyclic process for developing
a product in different phases by collaboration of human and experiment done
in different phases.

1.2 IMPORTANVE OF DESIGN ENGINEERING:

Design 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. Design engineering helps in
development of engineering students. It provides different phase while
completing, project and increases knowledge of student.

The primary purpose of this article is to summarize and synthesize the
research on design engineering 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 IMPORTANCE OF LOG BOOK:

Log book (or simple book) is a record of important events, management,
activities done while researching or completing project. The log book
leads us to the steps for our success or failure by re-evaluating the process
done till now. It is a book in which every step has been recorded taken in
project and mistake done by team and even it conceits correction done by
guide.

2.EMPATHY MAPPING

2.1 Mind Mapping (Data analysis):

A mind map is a diagram to visualize the information taking a single
concept in center of a blank landscape page. Which also associates
images, words, parts of

A mind map is a pictorial method of representing information or concept.
It is a tool to help you visualizing, constructing new ideas about topic. It
helps us to analyze information, synthesis, or recalls new ideas.

2.2 AEIOU SUMMARY FRAME WORK

This AEIOU sheet consist of activity conducted by team, interactions
done to persons we met while our visits to industry and farm, objects we
used to gather information about topic and our project research,
environmental condition of places we visited and where we work, and
finally the users of products manufactured from bagasse. This sheet
shortly consists every person, place, and objects that were used or were
connected to this project by any means.

2.3 Empathy mapping canvas:
Thus Empathy Mapping provides the direct introduction to our project.
1. This gives the basic idea of area of massive interest of people.
2. The ultimate stakeholders who guide/provide us with financial support and also
be the people related to users.
3. The story that helped us to serve our purpose and observe the happy and sad
happenings around us.

Happy story
When we visited to sugar industry. We were treated well by safety
departments person who further lead us to some important parts of the
industry from where we were able to understand the production of bagasse.
An at the end je offered us sugarcane juice.
Sad story
When we went to bagasse storage farm the guard told us that before to weeks
of our visit due to increasing moisture the bagasse stored in farm has to be
transported to other place. Which cause loss to a company.

3.Ideation canvas:

At this stage we will expand our list of activities to list all possible new
situations, conditions that users face or may face. Focus on expanding activity
list at this stage using ideation canvas.

3.1 People
People who uses our product or connected to our project by any means are
listed as below:
? Farmers
? Industrial employees
? Guide
? Students

3.2 Activity:
We had done activities like method analysis, industrial visit, farm visit,
literature survey, product survey, market survey, pattern finding etc. During our
visits farm and industry we came to know different process for bagasse and
production of paper from it.

APPLICATION OF BAGASSE

3.3 Situation:
While our survey of product literature we came in front of some situations due
to which bagasse can be corrupted. We came to know that due to moisture in
storage areas of bagasse insects grows in it and proper care should be taken so
that problems like fire, animals invasions can have restricted. Problems related
to packaging and transportation also arises.

APPLICATION OF BAGASSE

3.4 Possible solution
There are some possible solutions are found after number of experiments and
analysis of situations created. For problem like fire proper fire equipment
should be available in near parameter of storage. For packaging and transporting
moulding should be done so fine particle of bagasse not spreads in air during its
transportation. And proper treatment should be given to storage farms so insects
or pests are not developing.

4.2 PRODUCT EXPERINCE;

From bagasse paper, furniture, organic fertilizer, ethanol and other different
things are manufactured and prepared. Paper from bagasse is cheaper than other
and is dull in colour while furniture is strong and durable.

4.3 Product function:

Product function in different manner. It is generated from sugar cane in sugar
industry after complete extraction of juice from it and at the end as a waste
bagasse is generated. Bagasse to furniture, Bagasse to paper, Bagasse to ethanol
and etc. is further generated.

4.4 PRODUCT FEATURES:

Paper quality is quite low than the paper manufactured from woods. Due to its
easy availability paper manufactured from bagasse is cheaper than other papers.
Paper from bagasse have dull yellow colour. Bagasse is also used for
manufacturing of ethanol by fermentation process.

4.5 COMPONENTS:

There are different components of bagasse which are listed below:
? Sugar cane
? Raw bagasse
? Fine bagasse
? Moulds of bagasse
? Digesters
? Fermentation tanks

4.6 CUSTOMER REVALIDATION:

Furniture made from bagasse are cheaper and durable. Paper from bagasse is
dull yellowish in colour and is little rough with compare to paper made from
woods. Paper manufacturing from bagasse is more profitable to paper industry
due to easy availability and cheap price of bagasse itself.

4.6 REDESIGN:

27 | P a g e

APPLICATION OF BAGASSE

After reviews and further research on application of bagasse we decide to
redesign the process for manufacturing of paper from it. It has other
applications as bio fuel for boilers, it can also use for generation of bio
fertilizers, used in cattle grazing etc.

CONCLUTION
By our survey and analysis on bagasse, production of bagasse, and its application
we concluded that it has lots of application at present and can be further applied
in other products. Due to such a wide application of bagasse sugar industries can
be said as zero waste industries.
