Problem-solving using knowledge of materials and manufacture, Strategic Management

Based on your findings in Task 1, investigate the problem described in Appendix 1 and propose a solution, in terms of material choice and manufacturing process.

Prepare a report on your research, analysis and design synthesis work.

In particular, the report should:
  Tabulate the properties of the seven materials, using absolute or relative measures

  Propose a solution to the problem described in Appendix 1, in which you:

o  Identify the problem in your own words

o  Suggest AT LEAST THREE solutions, changing material and/or process as appropriate

o  Compare the three solutions and select one of them as the "best", with reasons.

As far as you can, base your recommendations on quantitative analysis rather than simple "gut feel".

The report should follow a recognised format for an Engineering report (as for guidance if you are not sure).

It should draw upon reputable sources of reference materials (not just Google and Wikipedia!) and use the Harvard form to cite and list them.

Aim to keep your report to less than 2500 (about 10 pages) words, but feel free to use appropriate diagrams to amplify the text.
