Group 29 - Homelite Line Trimmer
Overview: Approaching the disassembly of the UT 15151 Homelite® Line Trimmer with due caution and scrutiny, Group 29 has determined it will require the following tools to conduct adequately and proficiently its physical dissection of the product.
Tools: • Set of sockets and ratchet • Torque wrench set • Standard wrench set and Crescent wrench • Pliers • #2 Phillips head and flat-head screwdrivers
Duration of Disassembly: On condition that the Disassembly/Reassembly Technicians (please refer to the Management Proposal for a description of the responsibilities this position entails) convene a minimum of twice per week for two to three hours each visit, the disassembly of the product is projected to consume two weeks of the project’s overall timeline.
Duration of Reassembly: The reassembly, to which apply the conditions noted above for the duration of the disassembly as well, is estimated to last three weeks, as noted in more specificity on the Gantt chart contained in the Management Proposal. Challenges Encountered: Following a thorough initial inspection of the product, it appears corroded components and fasteners could complicate disassembly, or at least serve as an invariable reminder of the caution to be exercised throughout the course of the product’s disassembly and subsequent reassembly.
Competencies and Shortcomings: For a detailed distillation of the competencies shared among the members of Group 29, please refer to the “Designation of Responsibilities” and “Breakdown of the Nominal Designations” sections of the Management Proposal.
In regard to addressing the shortcomings of the group, the salient one proves to be coordinating times at which the group may convene as a whole to perform disassembly of the product. This is so, because individual schedules have thus far conflicted to a prominent degree, thus suggesting that substantial attention be directed in the near future to time management and ensuring that collective participation is sustained throughout the succession of the Gates. It is not for lack of will, but rather for the lack of time, that such an issue has evolved to be a principal concern for the group.
