Abstract

The present paper shows the role of industrial design in the process of modernisation of railway vehicles, illustrated through a study case – personal experience. The collaboration with the “Electroputere VFU Pașcani” factory, specialized in reparations, modernization and building railway items, led to a work experience along with engineers, as well as learning the particularities of working in a factory, of turning a design project into reality. Besides from the specific steps of the design process, an important aspect is represented by the communication with the producer, in order to know all technologies and materials which can be used during the fabrication process. The obtained product must offer originality through shape and colour, fully responding to the beneficiary’s needs.
