This project requires students to create a unique building energy audit for RIT to provide energy solutions for the residential side of campus. The team will create a two part solution composed of an engineering solution and a second component in the form of a Public Relations Campaign.
- In summary to successfully complete this project the team will need to:
- Create an audit to determine how energy is being used on the residential side of campus
- Implement an engineering solution to conserve energy in the form of a small capital improvement or system modification
- Create a grass-roots campaign to get the student body on board with energy savings solutions by educating them about their energy consumption and responsibility to reducing this consumption.

This outline for the posting of team created documents follows the general product development process presented in the textbook "Product Design and Development" by Ulrich and Eppinger.
Portions of the team documents have been prepared by a DPM student prior to the launch of this project. This information is intended to help get the team started with a first draft needs assessment and work breakdown structure. The team members can adapt this information as the project progresses.
Keep in mind that everything you include in this web tree is visible to the world and the general public. If you have documents that reflect work in progress, or contain data that has not been fully vetted, then it may be better to include those internal working documents in the private section of the web tree, or in the project repository proper, outside of the web tree. Note that anyone with Guest or higher memberhsip in your project can read your entire project repository. Anyone with an Editor or higher membership can makes changes to your repository. All Observer members can view, but not edit, the web portion of your repository.
These links provide a basic starting point for your team to prepare a comprehensive web site about your project.
After you get started on the project, you may want to replace these introductory paragraphs with a photograph of your team. Near the conclusion of your design project, you may also wish to include a photo of your finished product.
