Feasibility: Prototyping, Analysis, Simulation

Feasibility #1: Diameter

Assume:

Research:

Analysis:


Feasibility #2: Welding/Joining String Strands Together

Assume:

Research:

Analysis: Test using product equipment similar to a Impulse Heat Sealer.


Feasibility #3: Joining ends of Rope Together

Assume:

Analysis: Test using product equipment similar to a Soldering Iron.


Feasibility #4: Blade Cycle Life

Research:

Recommendation: Replace the blade once a week. Beginning of each 8 hour shift, place razor blade at new focal point on the bottle each time.


Feasibility #5: Pressure Needed to Reshape the Bottles

Assume:

Research:

Perform Research Experiment:

Analysis: Build a Prototype fixture and Test


Feasibility #6: Material Input to Product Output

Design Review Materials

Include links to:

It is appropriate for you to send your customer and guide a link to this page in preparation for the review. This will ensure that they know what you will be presenting and how to view all of your work. Any EDGE link should start with http://edge.rit.edu/edge/P1xxxx..... Using "http" instead of "https" will ensure that non-RIT stakeholders can view the content without being prompted for a DCE login and password.
