Craftsman 16" 38cc Chainsaw

Executive Summary

The purpose of this project is to document the entire analysis of the Craftsman 16" 38cc chainsaw. Initially, the product was assessed without any internal observations being made. The product was then dissected and the components were analyzed for manufacturing processes used during development. Improvements to the design of the components and interactions between components are suggested with global, environmental, societal, and economic factors taken into consideration. Then the product is reassembled and comparisons are made to the original assembly process. Design revisions are then suggested to improve the overall functionality of the product again with global, environmental, societal, and economic factors taken into consideration..
