A process for the design of slide lock mechanisms for Central Industrial Supply was developed. The process incorporated tools from several theoretical design processes. The developed design process was tested using a case study, in which a self-closing mechanism was designed using the developed process. The case study proved the process to be effective, with the designed mechanism satisfying all requirements by 100% or more. Highlighted weaknesses of the process were afterwards corrected.
