Propose an approach for disassembly and assembly with specific details on what tools will be
+
required, how long it will take and the challenges you have identified through initial inspection
+
of your product. Be sure to include a summary of the capabilities your group has and the
+
shortcomings you may have. You will not be penalized for providing an honest evaluation of

virtual; you may not open up your product beyond normal usage or use exploded assembly
+
drawings. Normal usage covers anything a customer would do in using the product, such as
+
changing a filter in a vacuum cleaner or replacing batteries in a toy. The goal of this stage is to
+
familiarize your group with the product and gather the required information to successfully
+
complete the product dissection. Your analysis should at a minimum answer the questions in
