Assembly and Product Contract Logistics

material submission logistics, presentation logistics

Material submission logistics
The assignment will be electronically submitted on the due date specified in the course schedule, prior to the in-class reviews.

Required items: descriptive .jpg or .png images that show complete assemblies from an informative viewpoint and product vision images; all of your native CAD files; a list of who modeled the different parts in the assembly (each team member must model at least one part); and a pdf version of your product contract. Also, when informative, include images of other materials documenting the design, as listed in the key elements discussion. The image of your team's assembly and your product contract will be made available on the course web site. Please limit the number of images to a maximum of 10 (in not needed, fewer is just fine).

Please follow the instructions below carefully:

i. Designate a team member to submit the materials.

ii. Prepare the files to be submitted using the naming convention below for your files
(o.k. if file extension/format is different from example):
   assembly.png for assembly image (number files if there is more than one; other image formats o.k.)
   contract.pdf for product contract (other document formats o.k.)
   who_did_what.txt for list of parts and who modeled them (other document formats o.k.) for zip file containing all the CAD files (other archive formats o.k.)
For additional files, please use descriptive names.

iii. Use the 2.009 file uploader tool to upload your assembly review materials. Use your username and password that you use for notebook and timesheet submissions.

iv. Check that your upload was successful by downloading the files from your team's upload directory linked from the 2.009 file uploader tool.


Presentation logistics
You will use your own computers for the presentation, so please bring video adapters as needed. 10-250 has both VGA and HDMI connections. Also, 10-250 is reserved so that you may test on either Tuesday 10-11 PM or Thursday from 7-8 PM.

Each team will have roughly 10 minutes to present relevant aspects of their product contract and product assembly in class, using materials from the assembly/product contract assignment. If your actual design changes after the electronic submission, please present your most current materials.

The team should focus on explaining their design to obtain feedback and suggestions from the rest of the class. Please expect the review to be interactive.

Four teams will be reviewed on the first day of the presentations and four teams will present on the second day of reviews.
