Personal Reflection (NEWater Visit)

1. I have learnt how NEWater is purified to become clean water for us to drink, what the four national 'taps' are, where the reservoir located.

2. I learnt that the used water are purified using
microfiltration, Reverse Osmosis and UV Disinfection. The purified water could also be mixed with reservoir water and, after it undergoes conventional water treatment, it can produce drinking water.

3. 1 interesting thing I learnt... is...
The quality of NEWater is actually better than other water and is cleaner than PUB water (the requirement).

4. By reducing, reusing and recycling water, we could help conserve water for Singapore.

Personal Reflection (8th Mar 2010)

3 takeaways from today ADMT lesson
--> The product that we design should be attractive to the user (our target audience)
--> The product should be convenience to the user
--> We must do enough research before we start to brainstorm on our idea

2 concepts
--> The product should be feasible and not those which are impossible
--> We should be looking at the user's point of view and not from our point of view when we decide if the product is feasible or not.

What is 1 interesting thing I've learnt
--> We cannot work on our idea when we do not search for information on the topic. Even if we can, it might not be a very good idea.
