Group 6 - Black & Decker Drill
Our group was given the task of analyzing, dissecting and reanalyzing a Black & Decker DR202 Power Drill. Through this process we will gain knowledge of design factors and understand how and why decisions were made in the development process. We will present our project in five different gates that each focus on a different aspect of the project.
A power drill is a must have tool for common household repairs. The Black & Decker DR202 Power Drill is designed with functionality and efficiency in mind to make repairs effortless. It has the ability to both remove and insert screws with ease. The uniquely molded handle is ergonomically designed to make the user interface more pleasing and on-drill bit storage adds convenience to the user. The implication of gear reduction generates sufficient torque to decrease the amount of energy the user must input. The DR202 is designed to be plugged into a common wall outlet so there does not need to be a change in voltage between the outlet and the drill. A keyless chuck also makes jobs faster for the user and eliminates the hassle of extra pieces that can potentially be lost. Aesthetically, the drill is made of plastic and rubber in the typical Black & Decker colors.
