Please form the groups of 3-4 people. You can have some ideas by examining the posters downstairs (e.g. the ones in front of the elevators). Let me know about your project team assignments by February 4.
Purpose: The purpose of this project is to give you a hands-on opportunity to implement the ideas and techniques you learn in the class to design and develop a consumer product. The project is the major lab component of the course and is worth 30% of the final grade.
Objectives: The objectives are to design a functional tool or a consumer product and subsequently manufacture a functional prototype of it. Keep a systematic record or log book of all your activities. A tool can be a kitchen, gardening, wood or metal working tool. A consumer product may be a table lamp, broom, trashcan, a musical instrument, a toy etc. etc. Write a detailed project report and make a presentation based on the project work at the end of the term.
Background: A typical group is anticipated to consist of 3-4 engineering students. Each group is responsible for developing appropriate channels for communication, both on and off campus, with their team members e.g. e-mail, cell / home / work phones, to organize meetings etc.
Design Guidelines: The guidelines for designing a product or a tool are as follows:
â€¢ Must perform a useful task or a function
â€¢ Contain at least five (5) distinct parts and requires five (5) different manufacturing + assembly operations to build
â€¢ Retail under $20.00, prototype manufacturing cost less than $100
â€¢ Be benchmarkable, which means that there are similar commercially-made products available for comparison
â€¢ Be ergonomically sound and safe to use
â€¢ Choose appropriate materials and processes with a view to maximize energy conservation, minimize environmental impact and facilitate sustainable development via recycling / reuse.
â€¢ Be something that you can realistically prototype without costing a fortune. Prototype must look and feel as much like the final design as possible
â€¢ Have some special characteristic(s) that will make it marketable e.g. added functionality, pleasing appearance, lightweight etc.
â€¢ Try to come up with a concept for a tool or product that you would like to own and that you want to work on.
