dc.description.abstractIn order to solve the problem of discomfort and injury caused by weightlifting with barbells in cold temperatures, an induction heater product was designed to warm cold barbells in 15 minutes or less; currently no other product exists to address this issue. The primary market identified for the product is lifters located in cold climates who train in their home garages, and the secondary market is unheated membership-based gyms. Product development steps documented in this thesis include customer needs gathering and analysis, concept generation and variant development, and heating performance simulation.en
