Client Request: Solve a real world problem. This problem does not have to be civil or environmental. Follow the design process to deliver your alternatives, chosen solution, analysis, and results.

There are minimal requirements that need to be met for this project to be considered complete, but they are significant:

1. Project must demonstrate that the engineering design process was followed to determine the "best" solution

a. Typically students do not adequately explore alternatives, provide information that the final selection is better than the other alternatives, use constraints/ criteria that are measureable, provide analysis that yields verifiable results, and do enough analysis

2. Final solution must include an economic analysis of life-cycle costs for your project. This will be difficult for sophomores, but if you do your research you can pull together some legitimate numbers

3. Identify and explain the impacts on the following

a. Economy
b. Environment
c. Community
d. Society

Unfortunately there are some projects we will not allow to be done because they have bene done so many times in the past:

• Rural drinking water treatment
• City of Flagstaff traffic
• NAU traffic
• NAU housing
• Any project that another team has already selected to work on As a team you will identify the problem you would like to work on.

Little direction will be provided in this solicitation, it will be 100% necessary to explore your problem and the project to ask well thought out and legitimate questions that will help you deliver the best possible project you can.


Course Project Memo 1: Initial (Individual) Problem Statement

• Done individually

• An initial, but sound beginning, four part, problem statement for the project chosen by your team. You may work collaboratively, but each individual must submit a Problem Statement

• Good practice would suggest that a cover memo for this, and most, submittals is warranted

Course Project Memo 2, Project Understanding, a team submittal

• A team submittal
• Memo should include

o Your understanding of project, it's need, its technical ‘niche', and how much existing design is already out there for this problem? And, your understanding of your specific "problem" , including site, technical niche, scope, etc.

o A repeat of your now highly developed Constraints and Criteria for this challenge, including explicit note of those items that were discovered during the ‘additional info & data, and sources' requirement of your problem statement

o Identify, in writing and equation, what you anticipate, even at this early juncture in the project, to be the analysis methodology you'll end up using, in conjunction with your constraints and criteria, to winnow down your candidate suite of design concepts towards your final design

Course Project Memo 3: Team Problem Statement

• Done as a team
• Based on the feedback you received on your individual problem statements development a team problem statement for your project

Course Project Memo 4, Progress Report, 30% Design, done individually

• Done individually

• Your 30% report should explain and identify that you have done the work and research required to "know your project", have developed a suite of potential solutions and include a discussion on the analysis methodologies you anticipate needing to narrow your design suite of ideas down to the one recommended solution

• In your own words provide a description what your progress has been towards completing the course project

• All of the above should be in reference to the engineering design process and analysis

Course Project Team Progress Report

• Done as a team

• Consider the guidance provided from previous, similar submittals from this and previous projects

• Your 60% report should demonstrate that you have done the design work, through analysis and the reduction of your suite of design concepts to final, recommended solution. This report needs to demonstrate to the client that you're progressing successfully towards meeting the project challenge. Most of your analysis is done by this point, but you may have some finalizing to do

• This report must also, explicitly state whether you are on track and ‘on budget' to complete this project on time.

• The ‘talking points' of this report should all align with elements of the engineering design process

Course Project Poster

• Done as a team

• You are encouraged to use the template, provided

• Like reports and presentations, a poster presentations should be aligned with the design process

• Posters should be concise and neatly organized for quick and consideration They should minimize reading (lists and short paragraphs are okay) and rely heavily on images, graphs, diagrams, and charts

• When creating the verbiage for a poster think about the requirements of a presentation. You do not want, nor should you expect people to stand there for solely for the purpose of reading it

• The primary difference between a poster and an oral presentation is that you have the opportunity to engage individuals in detailed discussions on various aspects of the project. This level of intimate, interactive discussion is rarely available in a ‘lecture style' oral presentation

• As is often the tradition where poster presentations are common, you will provide a very brief (3 min +/) introduction to your project and its conclusion/recommendation

Course Project Final Report Submittal

• Done as a team
• Consider the provided guidelines
• Must include methods of analysis, results of analysis, and discussion of analysis
• Discussion must also address the following

o Probable economic impacts of your proposed solution
o Probable environmental impacts of your proposed solution
o Probable societal impacts of your proposed solution
o Probable engineering impacts of your proposed solution
o A list of all professional disciplines that may be needed to implement your solution and a brief discussion of what their role would be

• The final report must explicitly address all external comments provided for the 60% progress report

o The 60% progress report and mark-up must be (re) submitted with this final report

Course Project Peer Evaluation, done individually

• Done individually
• Provide your peer evaluation using the template provided for Design Project 1.
