Group 17 - Beginner Dirt Bike
|The labeled heading for this product design and analyses is reverse engineering. During this process the group members will commence by noticing the easiest method to disengage the engine which seems to be of particular interest to the topic of analyses. The product website services will be employed based on the ease of understanding. Photographs will be taken in the process to better facilitate instruction on the disassembly and reassembly processes. These seem to be the most tedious tasks noticeable from the onset.
The Dirt Bike was not operational at first sight although it seems to have been ridden at some point due to observable tire dirt and wear on the sides of the teeth.
The analyses entails that the engines be kept at less than perfect condition to perform FMEA on it. The failure mode collectively agreed upon is the flooding of the engine whilst running due to improper fuel air ratios by the carburetor. Probable design reviews are required for submittal. The dexterity of the group is not necessarily high; neither is the hands-on knowhow. This should influence our collective power to approach problems whilst working without our levels of competence, although expedience is relevant to this project. It is also inferential that duties will be assigned.
The closest to a project lead at commencement was the resonance of ideas as seems fit due to experiential skills gained before this class. This in turn limited delegation of difficult tasks. Contemplating the course of action is not an issue. The path to success has been laid down against such complaints on a generally accessible file, together with the previous schools and years of project outlines made available as templates. The major issue with the group at this point is scheduling meetings which should be taken care of by a timeline consensus explained in a Gantt chart posted.
