Executive Summary

Addressed herein is the reverse engineering of the UT 15151 Homelite® VersaTool™ line trimmer undertaken by group 29 of MAE 277, SUNY-Buffalo, for the Fall 2009 semester. Documentation of the development of the semester-long project entails a record of an evolving engineering process distilled into four discrete "gates", designated as the following:

Gate I: Request for Proposal, which contains details germane to the Work Proposal, Project Management and the Initial Product Assessment;

Gate II: Preliminary Project Review, which consists of Causes for Corrective Action and the Product Dissection Plan;

Gate III: Coordination Review, which includes a Component Summary, Design Revisions, a Solid Modeled Assembly, and an Engineering Analysis apposite to the vital mechanics of the product;

Gate IV: Critical Project Review, which provides a step-by-step account of the product's reassembly, articulated in Product Reassembly Plan.

Motivation for this maiden enterprise evoking application of fundamental engineering principles to technical communications, analysis and design arose from the stimulus of MAE 277 coursework, as alluded to earlier, with the Reverse Engineering Team Project amounting to a substantial percentage of the course material and grades. Apart from this, genuine and sustained enthusiasm about reverse engineering physical machinery and sound responsibility in attending to delegated work, thereby enabling submittal of deliverables per deadline, proved to be the lone additional catalyst necessary for constructive progress during the course of the project.
