1 First-Year Engineering Program Advanced Energy Vehicle Topics: Introduction, Design Review Phases, AEV Components, & Mission Concept Review

2 First-Year Engineering Program Introduction AEVs are small (< 500grams), autonomous, electric motor- powered, propeller-driven vehicles that are suspended from and maneuver along a monorail track systems hung from the laboratory ceilings Example AEV

3 First-Year Engineering Program Project Objectives Project Management and Teamwork Time management, task scheduling, communication, etc. Design Process and Cycle Indentifying requirements/constraints, brainstorming, initial designs, build/test/analyze, final design, etc. Project Documentation Project notebook, design review phase documents, final reports, extra credit video, etc.

4 First-Year Engineering Program Project Management and Teamwork To successfully bring any complex project to completion requires proper planning and the coordinated effort of a group of people Expected to produce related documents such as a project schedule and team meeting records, all of which must be regularly updated and kept in the team project notebook (discussed next week) Additional information is included in the Project Description Document

5 First-Year Engineering Program Design Process and Cycle Process includes: identifying the project requirements and constraints, gathering background information, brainstorming, identification and management of materials, preliminary analysis & initial design, and the build/test/modify/document cycle As part of this process, you will brainstorm initial concepts of your AEV, produce a preliminary design of your AEV, document revisions as they occur, and produce a final paper design that accurately reflects your final AEV design Review Engineering Design Process material from 1181

6 First-Year Engineering Program Project Documentation Your project documentation consists of three parts: the team project notebook, the oral presentation and the final written report The team project notebook is the complete documentation of the AEV project, which will be reviewed on a weekly basis. It should contain your lab documentation, paper design, team meeting minutes, project management documents, and anything else of importance relating to the AEV Additional information is included in the Project Description Document

7 First-Year Engineering Program AEV Video In addition to the required documentation components, an AEV Video can be completed for up to 2% extra credit on your overall grade Here is a short example video

10 First-Year Engineering Program Design Review Phases

11 First-Year Engineering Program AEV Design Review Phases Demonstrate the design process through a series of review phases A design review is described as a: "documented, comprehensive examination of the design to evaluate the adequacy of the design requirements The Mission Concept Review (MCR) is an example of an early review phase; and, in this case, is provided.

12 First-Year Engineering Program AEV Design Review Phases Procedure AEV design teams will demonstrate the design by: 1.Developing Test Readiness Review Documents to demonstrate that the team is prepared to meet the Performance Test Objectives 2.Developing a Preliminary Design Review Document from laboratory tests and Performance Test 1 3.Developing a Critical (Final) Design Review Document from detailed investigations in design, including the PDR, and Performance Tests 2-4

13 First-Year Engineering Program AEV Design Review Phases Overview Test Readiness Review: Performance Test 1 Preliminary Design Review (PDR) Test Readiness Reviews: Performance Test 2-4: Critical Design Review (CDR) Mission Concept Review (provided) Final Documentation
