Aalto University Design Factory, one of the spearhead projects of the recently formed Aalto University, is a meeting point for students, educators and practitioners from the fields of engineering, design and business. The Design Factory is a constantly evolving experimental platform for interdisciplinary education and collaboration related to product development. As Design Factory continues to grow from its birth four years ago, it is gaining worldwide interest, hosting various courses, along with projects, events and visits from different universities, institutions and companies, both national and international. This continuing development has presented a need for a system to efficiently collect information needed to help document visitors and activities. This thesis depicts a design project with the main goal of designing a system that helps capturing information from the visitors of the Design Factory in an easy, organized and programmable way. This system enables the Design Factory to start a database of visual and contact information of the people for internal documentation, research and external promotion and communication. As an outcome of the design project, a basic working prototype of the system was developed and provided to Design Factory for testing and further development. The system development process follows general product and systems design and project engineering methodologies and procedures with the documentation and reflections of the author serving as a future reference for development of similar types of projects.
