The practice named "Creative Design and Production" has been given to train the students'ability to find and solve problems. Students are expected to design and fabricate creative artifacts in the practice. The practices focusing on perfection and creativity of the products have been executed for the past few years. We have reviewed the relationships between these abilities and the qualities of products of the students in the practices. It seems that the products lacks of originality and creativity when focused on the perfection. And on the contrary, the perfection of the products is low when focused on the creativity. We have employed the new three trials in order to solve these problems in the practice. Among trials, the cooperation with veterans has been the most useful for students through "Creative Design and Production".
