GM V-6 Engine

Gate 1

Management Proposal: In order to successfully dissect our automobile engine, we have decided to give certain positions to each person in our group. With these positions well be able to identify the specific roles of each person in our group. But even though a specific role is given to a person, we will all try to work an equal amount on the project so that we produce a report of high quality. The roles of each person are as follows:

Noor Jariri and Tanner Kahm- Technical Experts

• Makes sure that all necessary tools and equipment needed to dissect the engine are accessible.

• Will provide the information of the more in- depth characteristics of the engine.

• Makes sure that the information in reports are professional and technically accurate.

Matt Egan- Technical Report Editor

• After whole technical report is compiled, Matt will be the primary editor or the report to ensure quality of content and check for grammatical mistakes.

Jasmine Lawrence- Project manager

• Will make sure that the group stays on task and completes assignments on time.

• Provides an order of how and when each gate will be completed.

Samuel Kim- Communication Liaison

• Primary point of contact.

- E-mail-

- Phone number- 845- 645- 0702

• Keeps track of all group meetings and will send out reminders or deadlines.

• Taking notes of on dissection process and makes sure that each member has the information available.

In order to complete the project in a timely fashion we have decided to meet twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday in the Capen Library or in the lab located at Furnas 621. If more meetings are needed we will schedule them accordingly with everyone’s schedule. The plan during the labs is to dissect the engine as efficiently as possible while learning about each subsystem noted in the Product Proposal (rotating assembly, valve train, energy transformation systems, engine control systems). We will be starting with the top of the engine taking apart each section of the head and then the block so we can view the inner parts of the engine. First, we will look at the main rotating assembly and how the crankshaft works with the connecting rods, pistons. After this, we will move to the valve train and look at the camshafts, valves and several other components in this system. And then we will move on to observe the energy manipulation components of the engine like the water and oil pumps and alternator. During our meetings and time in labs, we will complete the dissection of the engine while learning about each system and subsystems as well as re- assembling the engine in the state given to us. If there is a conflict within the group, we will all come together and discuss the issue that is at hand and we will handle it in a fair, democratic way that would hopefully do away with the problem within the group.

The following outline is a schedule of our planned meetings:

• Gate 2: Due 10/26/11

October 11th , 13th , 18th and 21st

• Gate 3: Due 11/14/11

November 1st , 3rd and 10th

• Gate 4: Due 12/2/11

November 17th (21st if necessary) and 29th

• Gate 5: Due 12/16/11

December 6th and 8th

At each of these meetings we will work to accomplish as much as possible, especially in the lab, so that we can meet the requirements of each gate in a timely fashion. We will continue to communicate effectively via email, text messaging and phone calls to solve any possible conflicts as well as answering any questions that may arise in the whole project.
