H7104 Design for Manufacture

Assignment: Based on the design brief provided as the basis for the coursework of this module (Appendix I of this document). The student(s) will re-design the product submitted last time the module was taken. For the student to pass this resit, it is imperative that: 1) the new design addresses all issues/recommendations highlighted in the feedback received last time the student took the module (this include the feedback provided during the oral presentation and in the written report). 2) Particularly if it has been more than one year since the student took the module last time, the student should visit the module’s Study Direct site and go through the different sections, get clearly acquainted with the module’s content and learning outcomes. In case the student withdrew early in the term last time the module was taken, then the student should treat the brief as if doing a new design rather than a re-design. Deliverables: The deliverables for this assignment are: 1. – A 42 x 59.4cm (A2) printed poster following the template provided last time the module was taken. 2.- A Technical Report (4500 words min.), carefully following the directions provided in the template for such report that was provided last time the student took the module. Notice: All deliverables must be submitted to the School Office on or before the deadline specified on the student timetable on Sussex Direct (typical penalties for late submissions will apply). Appendix II (Design Brief) 1.1 Brief Applying knowledge of principles, methodologies and techniques of the best practice known as ‘Design for Manufacture,’ the student will re-design a commercial product (free choice) following the constraints outlined below, with the aim of improving its design (for manufacture). The design project is divided in two parts: Part 1: Analysis of the product: For the first part of the project students will purchase a commercial product. Students will proceed to study the product in terms of Design for Manufacture, this procedure will require that the product is dismantled. Part 2: Re-design of the product: During the second stage of the project students will re-design the product previously studied with the intention to improve its design in terms of manufacturing. This re-design should be based on what the students have learned about the product after studying it as well as on their knowledge about Design for Manufacture acquired in the module. Limitations/Constraints of the product to be acquired/re-designed: Must be purchased new Retail cost must be between £15 and £20 Must be made of at least two different material families (i.e., metal and plastic. Excluding PCBs and/or off-the-shelf components). Must feature labels/graphics Must be made of at least 4 different parts (excluding any off-the-shelf parts) Must have a moving part and/or a part that can be taken off (for use) Must be electric/electronic (power source does not need to reside in the product) (Product Design Students or Mixed Groups Only) Must be a ‘consumer’ product 1.2 Marking The following criteria provides guidance for the marks awarded to a project. For reference, a generic assessment criteria used for projects at the school is also provided. Generic project assessment. The following table shows the generic level descriptors followed at the school. Comments refer to marks around the middle of each range. Mark range Description 85 – 100 Marks in this range will be awarded for outstanding work that exhibits all the attributes of excellent work and also has substantial elements of originality and flair. The project will have been executed following a clear plan, with progress and use of resources documented in the logbook in a professional manner. The final project achievement will be of an outstanding standard, with objectives achieved and indicative of either a high level of independence or, in the case of group projects, of effective teamwork. The report will be superbly organized and presented, giving a masterly account of the project and an evaluation of the achievement of objectives. In the case of group projects it will also clearly demonstrate the effective operation of the team and roles of the team members. It will be written in exemplary English, with correct use of references and a comprehensive set of supporting sources of information. 70 – 84 Marks in this range will be awarded for excellent work that also, at the higher end of the scale, shows originality and flair. A clear project plan will have been followed and progress and use of resources documented in the logbook. The final project achievement will be of an excellent standard with objectives substantially achieved and indicative of independence or, in the case of group projects, of effective teamwork. The report will be well organized and presented, giving a comprehensive account of the project and an evaluation of the achievement of objectives. In the case of group projects it will also clearly demonstrate the effective operation of the team and roles of the team members. It will be written in clear and appropriate English, with correct use of references and an appropriate set of supporting sources of information. 60 – 69 A clear project plan will have been followed and progress and use of resources documented in the logbook. The final project achievement will be of a good to very good standard, with good progress towards the achievement of objectives. The report will be well organized and presented, giving a comprehensive account of the project and an evaluation of the progress towards the achievement of objectives. In the case of group projects it will also demonstrate the operation of the team and roles of the team members. It will be written in clear and appropriate English, with correct use of references and an appropriate set of supporting sources of information. 50 – 59 A project plan will have been produced and the logbook used to record progress and use of resources. The final project achievement will be of a satisfactory standard, with some progress towards the achievement of objectives. The report will be reasonably well organized and presented, giving an account of the project and an evaluation of the progress towards the achievement of objectives. In the case of group projects it will also demonstrate the operation of the team and roles of the team members. It will be written in understandable English and show an appreciation of the correct use of references and some supporting sources of information. 40 – 49 A project plan will have been produced and the logbook used to record progress. The final project achievement will be of an acceptable standard, with some progress towards the achievement of objectives. The report will be acceptably organized and presented, giving an account of the project and progress towards the achievement of objectives. In the case of group projects it will also indicate the operation of the team and roles of the team members. It will be written in understandable English and show an appreciation of the correct use of references. There will be some evidence of research into the chosen area. 30 – 39 Contains work of some merit that addresses the project requirements with some degree of conviction, but falls short in key respects of achievement of the objectives and/or a satisfactory account in terms of content or presentation. 15 – 29 May have some correct and relevant material, but has major flaws and/or omissions that make it quite unreliable. Some signs of appreciation of the project requirements. 0 – 14 Very little of relevance, none of the project requirements addressed in a serious manner.
