2.009 Product Engineering Processes

Technical Review Logistics

Before the review, the review, after the review

Before the review
If a special location other than listed in the schedule below, or other arrangements are needed to demonstrate your prototype, please let the course instructor know no later than Tuesday evening before the review.

You should have a large poster that clearly highlights critical functional specifications (from your product contract). You can schedule a time for help with plotting on Wednesday evening.

Be prepared to let the reviewers use your prototype. During the evening, your team will also be asked to give a 5 minute demonstration to be recorded for the website. Your team should plan and practice this demonstration in advance of the review as the video will be used for reference when instructors and mentors write feedback for your team. Use the video as an opportunity to explain and demonstrate your product. The video will be what reviewers what when writing feedback for your team.

Work on the machine shop side of the lab will cease at 4:45 PM, but you will have shop access through to 7 PM. Dinner will be available in the lab at 6 PM.

The review
The review will be in the Pappalardo lab from 7-9:35 PM on the date indicated in the course schedule.

Instructors and guest reviewers will divide into 4 groups and be assigned to different teams of ~7 people. Every 15 minutes the review groups will switch to a different project team, according to the schedule below. The rotation is structured so that you will have 15 minutes on, then 15 minutes off. In total, you will have four 15 minute review sessions.

Prepare your presentation area so reviewers have space to use the prototypes. Also be sure team members are prepared to present to demonstrate/answer questions and others are recording notes during the review.

A 5 minute video of you demonstrating your prototype will be taken during one of your breaks.

After the review
Notes recorded during the review should be disseminated to the team for consideration when prioritizing improvements before the final presentation. If you showed any videos of other materials during the review, please email them to the course instructor (drwallac) by midnight Thursday night. Also, please be sure to email your up-to-date product contract by midnight.

Preliminary feedback will be provided Friday morning on the course website. Additionally, your review materials and video will be posted, and you will receive written feedback from at least 3 course staff either before 5 PM Saturday. After you have received written feedback via email from instructors, complete your milestone reflection in your design notebook.

Please arrange a meeting with Professor Wallace for Tuesday next week to discuss your final presentation setup and have a brief design review, and remember that the 30 minute design reviews are on Monday afternoon.
