Homework Help: Engineering Project

  1. Dec 6, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I am doing a Project that involves taking a failed design .and coming up with new designs
    the designs then have to be drawn up on solidworks. I am a mature student who has been out of school for a while, and I am not too familiar with projects. I am going ok, but the lecturers do not want to give to much away.

    As I am sure many of you guys have done alot of projects before. Is there a format I should be using. Like Introduction first. basically what areas do i need to cover. any input is greatly appreciated

    2. Relevant equations
    This is the basics of the projects
    Research technology used in current design and elsewhere
    Describe the good & bad
    Draw up specification

    Sketch Designs
    Draw up Designs on solidworks and explain techniques used

    take into account effect on other parts from the new design

    3. The attempt at a solution
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    A good project report reads compellingly like a good story, with a beginning, middle and (hopefully, happy) end. You need to build the beads to thread onto the string and then have connecting pieces, such as 'what I decided to do next, and why'. I think you have made a good start. Keep it simple and keep going.
