Group 12 - Product Name Here
- In September 14th, 2011, group 12 proposed Bissell 6579-2 vacuum model as the product of MAE 277 course. The purpose of this project is to develop technical communication skill, analysis skill, better problem solving skill and other skills necessary to participate in a group. This project will consists of the dissection, documentation, assembly, and presentation of our product. The group 12 will document all of critical elements of the project with a picture or diagrams. And also the group will organize data and informations and present it via Wiki page.
- The purpose of this section is to give a summarization of the key processes utilized throughout the project and their findings. These descriptions will include the purpose of each process and what we learned from them. The findings that Group 12 has discovered during the entirety of the project are numerous. In terms of actually performing the project, each group member has gained much experience in how to function with others as a team. Group members were each given a different role and their own value that contributed to the project as a whole. In terms of the product, dissecting, analyzing, and reassembling the Bissell PowerForce® Bagless Upright Vacuum 6579-2 had taught everyone in the group about actual applications of technical systems. It has also given the group hands-on experience that is useful in all engineering jobs and applications.
Gate1: Request for Proposal
The purpose of Gate 1 helps the group 12 to become more familiar with the project. The group did the work proposal, management proposal and product archaeology of Bissell 6579-2 vacuum model. The objective to Gate 1 is to prepare the dissection and lay out plan for this project.
Gate 2 gave group 12 a better understanding of our product's parts and subsystem arrangements. In this section the group did a section on product Archaeology involving a complete dissection of the Bissell 6579-2, as well as, a detailed list of steps to take the vacuum apart. In addition, the group provided a Preliminary Project review and also answered some basic questions on the dissection itself, as well as, the Vacuums subsystems and overall functions. The objective of Gate 2 was to successfully dissect and provide details for the Bissell Vacuum's functions and subsystems.
For Gate 3 our group completed a full analysis of the Bissell vacuum. We achieved this by studying each individual component with I high level of detail. In this section we addressed many questions such as; what material is the component made from, how it was manufactured, and we even asked ourselves what design changes we would make to the components and subsystems.
Gate 4 includes our detailed product reassembly and system design revisions. The product reassembly describes the chronological process of reassembling the Bissell 6579-2 vacuum cleaner. Each step included which tool was used, how difficult it was to assemble, and if there were any challenges met with that particular step. The three design revisions explain an additional feature revision or an elimination feature revision on a system level of our pruduct.
