Assignment

 

SLO 2 – Manage a design project, evaluate outcomes and make improvements

 

In the first part of the assignment, you created a Product Design Specification (PDS) document. This required you explored customer needs and communicated these in a formal technical way.

The second stage of the assignment is, working from a PDS document, to create and evaluate suitable concept designs which meet the intent of the PDS document.

Concept Design and Selection Report

 

Using the PDS provided as a basis for concept design generation and selection, task is to produce at least 2 design concepts that meet the requirements of the PDS.

Your deliverable is a report detailing the steps taken to create, evaluate and refine your concept designs. It should include evidence to show that you have undertaken the following tasks:

  1. Produced a functional decomposition showing the inputs, outputs and main functional elements of your design.
  2. Identified the critical sub systems within your concept design – these can be highlighted on the functional decomposition diagram with a suitable commentary in the text
  • Applied internal and external search techniques to the critical sub systems of your design (minimum 3 sub-systems). You should state the techniques used, sources used and results of those searches.
  1. Applied a classification tree technique to the critical sub systems to identify the most promising areas for solution
  2. Used a concept combination table to explore possible solutions combining various sub system fragments
  3. Applied the material selection tables provided to consider the materials appropriate for the main parts of the design. This should include the external casings, aesthetics as well as any key functional components
  • Generated a minimum of 2 viable concepts which meet the requirements set out in the PDS. A brief description (1 or 2 paragraphs per concept) plus a supporting sketch – this may be hand drawn as long as it is neat and legible.
  • Devised a suitable concept selection table, using at least 10 weighted criteria taken from the PDS and reflecting the customer priorities.
  1. Scored the concept designs using the concept selection table to identify the most promising and second most promising design concepts. With a suitable commentary setting out the key features of the best designs found.
  2. Develop a suitable project plan showing the key tasks, milestones, review dates, resources and expected timescales for developing the chosen concept into a fully manufacturable-

 

design

 

  1. Undertaken a design review with the authors of the original PDS, their comments to form part of your report together with remedial actions you have (or intend) to take to incorporate their comments

All of the above techniques have been covered in the lectures and examples are available within the lecture notes on the Moodle web site.

It is recommended that you structure the body of your report into the sections set out above together with an introduction and summary or conclusion section.

Assignment

 

SLO 3 – Apply quantitative methods and computer software to engineering design problems.

As part of your design development you are to use the Autodesk Inventor software to create a detailed design of your chosen concept as a solid model.

Your design should show sufficient product detailing to allow images to be used by the marketing department for research purposes in public focus groups.

Once you have completed your detailed design you are to compile a report of 1000 words, describing:

 

  • how you constructed the model using the software

 

  • issues / problems with the design identified during the modelling process

 

  • the benefits you perceive in using the Inventor software for creating detailed designs

 

Your report should include an introduction setting out the task to be accomplished e.g. create a detailed design from a concept design and a conclusion reviewing how well your original objectives have been met.

Your deliverables for this part of the assignment are:

 

  1. At least two printed design views showing your concept design model

 

  1. An Autodesk Inventor model of your design from which the design views were printed

 

  • Your report.
