Following appropriate use of design tools and techniques, including requirements analysis, idea and concept generation and concept selection a detailed concept should be proposed to satisfy the customer requirements. A report should detail the selected design proposals and should demonstrate clear understanding of:
The requirement to be satisfied and the current state of art in the market place.
Forces associated with the operation and behaviour of your solution (Minimum expectations include free body diagrams, appropriate formulae, numerical values)
Materials, manufacturing & cost.
Concept generation techniques, included detailed sketches.
Concept selection methodologies.
Consideration of material, manufacturing, cost.
Safety and standard compliance
Technological advancements in the product area
3D models of your components and a Fully Assembly model
2D drawings to BS8888, including a Bill of Materials
Practicality, detail & validation of the final proposal to include DFMA and FMAE analyses
Detailed Free Body Diagrams and appropriate engineering analysis in consideration of loads and stresses
