Gate 4: Critical Project Review
Revision as of 15:56, 10 December 2010 by MAE 277 2010 Group 23
Below are issues that group 23 had during Gate 4.
|Broken Fastener||During the reassembly of the Honda engine one of the fasteners was over torque and sustained a small crack in its threads.||Resolved||We were able to put the bolt back in without any huge issues|
|Huge bag of random parts||During the dissection portion of the project the group found a large bag of random parts left inside the air box of the Honda engine. It contained several bolts and screws.||Unresolved||We were left with this bag of parts that were not put back into the engine. This would be bad if the motor was ever going to be used in a motorcycle and driven on the road.|
|Finishing Gate 3||We had some issues with our gate 3 and the solid modeling not being done in the correct format.||Resolved||We had to meet on a Saturday morning to do the solid modeling and then put it up on wiki for the final grading of the project.|
|Time issues||To finish out the semester the group had many different things that they were trying to do at the same time. With a full work schedule from other classes we struggled to figure out times to finish the project.||Resolved||We worked together and separately to get all of the work done that was needed. And like the other parts of the project we successfully finished everything.|
Overall group 23 worked together well as a team and successfully completed each portion of this project. We overcame adversity and made the best of the project.
