Gate 3 - Product Analysis (Group 10)
The goal of this gate of the project is to complete a detailed analysis of our Snow Blower. In this stage we examined the product at the component and subsystem level, gathering and analyzing detailed information, past what we did in the previous two gates. This proses entailed the revision of our parts list form gate two to include the manufacturing processes used to create each part as well as applicable part numbers on the parts. Also we analyzed some parts in more depth creating solid models and also suggested design revisions which could be made to our product.
Product Archaeology: Product Evaluation
|Product Archaeology:Stage||Stage Description||Link to Page|
Document all of the product’s components. In addition to an image of the component, identify the component’s function, materials used, manufacturing processes used, model or part number if applicable, and other important information. Be sure to include the number of times the components is used.
In this section we analyze the engineering decisions that were made during the design of our product, considering the many design questions ,in Table 1 (under the table one link to the right),of a few vital components of our product.In this section we also analyse the complexity of the parts in question useing our derived Complexity Scale which can be found under the Complexity Scale like tothe right.
|Solid Modeled Assembly||
In this section our group provides solid models of 3 components using Autodesk Inventor.
In this section our group explains how engineering analysis would be used in the design of the Engines Piston. we provide a detailed description including relevant equations and processes that would allow an engineer to easily perform this analysis following the analysis process.
In this section we suggest 3 design changes for our product at the component or subsystem level.
