Group 27,Printer,Work Proposal
When our team disassembles our product some tools we plan to need include a phillips and a flat head screwdriver, different drivers for the screwdriver like a star or a triangle tip for certain parts, a few prying tools for clips that need to be moved out of the way, and possibly a wire cutter or some type of shear if a part is preventing us from continuing our disassembly. For disassembling the printer we are first going to take off the scanner top by removing one of the screws holding it onto the main unit and two brackets, then the top plate which is held on by four screws, then the wire cover, the side panels, the mother board, and then the middle cover plate which will show the other inner parts to the printer which will be taken off one by one. For the disassembly process including dissection, notes, labeling, and pictures, we estimate roughly five hours for the entire process. Taking off the individual parts should not take more than a total of an hour and a half. What will take the most amount of time for our group will be the documentation of labeling, pictures, and notes. These steps will be done constantly during the disassembly of our printer.
For reassembly, the tools we will need include a phillips and flat head screw driver, the necessary drivers that were used for disassembly, the prying tools to get brackets back into place, and electrical tape for cut wires if the cutting of wires was necessary to continue the dissection process. We will need to put the motherboards and motors back in place, then the middle cover will go on, following another mother board, then the side plates, wire cover, top plate, and scanner top all with the necessary fasteners that were originally used. The assembly should take roughly an hour since we know how certain parts go in and out, and our notes will be very detailed to prevent making mistakes like putting the wrong part or wrong fasteners in the wrong spot.
