Name: ASSIGNMENT: DUE DATE: TYPE & LOCATION DUE: EFFORT: POINTS: CATEGORY: Project 3: Reverse Engineering As indicated by instructor Deliverables stapled together, in class Individual 100 Projects DESCRIPTION: Problem Statement: Reverse engineering is critical in engineering, from determining design issues, problems, and flaws, to improving existing designs, to investigating the market. This project introduces the student to the process, complexities, and details of reverse engineering. Students must select and obtain approval for their reverse engineering item prior to class. Each item must have at least three distinct parts. Keep the items simple in the interest of completing the project on time. DELIVERABLES: 1. An electronically created write up detailing the following. This should be doublespaced, with 1” margins and 12-point font. The students’ names and section should appear on the upper left hand corner. Expectation is a minimum of two pages. The write up should include: o A brief introduction of the project. Assume the reader does not know what MAE 1503 is and has never read this write up. o A one-half page on the general role reverse engineering plays in design, etc. o A one-half page – full page introduction of the item you chose for this project. What is its function? Why did you select it? o A short description of each individual part (ie after you take your item apart) and its function. o A one-half page discussion on suggested improvements to the item you chose. Possible improvements could be in the areas of function, cost, aesthetics, etc. 2. Hand drawings (general isometric view with dimensions – does not have to be perfect!) of each part. Drawings must be neat and easily readable. 3. Inventor isometric and three-view drawing of each part. Include decimal dimensions. 4. Assembly balloon and parts list All items must be printed out and stapled together in the order listed.
