4 Customer Requirements

6 Engineering Requirements

7 F1 = Contain Breadfruit F3 = Shred Breadfruit F2 = Collect Processed Breadfruit F4 = Grind Shreds

8 Feasibility Question: How much flour can be made from one breadfruit? Assume: Breadfruit is 70% water by weight, peel and core weigh approximately 0.2lb, shreds are completely dry (100% water reduction) Analysis: 3 breadfruit = $ breadfruit = $1.98 Therefore: 1 breadfruit = 1.67lb 1.67lb * 0.7 = 0.5lb of dried fruit 0.5lb – 0.2lb = 0.3lb One breadfruit yields approximately 0.3lb of flour.

9 HOQ This format only allows 25 ER’s...we will need to reformat or eliminate some ER’s to make a complete HOQ.

10 Functional Decomposition Critical!

11 Shredder Decomposition

12 Grinder Decomposition

13 Energy Flow

14 Benchmarking for Functions-Shred Ribbon Fry Cutter Apple Peeler

15 Benchmarking for Functions-Shred Shredding Rollers technik.com/fileadmin/_processed_/csm_grobhomogenisator_01_fc818f2f51.gif Blade Array

16 Benchmarking for Functions-Shred Apple Peeler with Cutter

17 Benchmarking to Function - Grind Roll Crushers

18 Benchmarking Functions - Grinder Mortar and Pestle Hammer Mill g

19 Benchmarking Functions - Human Power Bike Power Hand Crank _Survival_and_Emergency_Products_Crank-a-Watt_TM_Deluxe.jpg

20 Concept Generation

23 ●Doesn’t use electricity ●Available in Haiti ●Easy to maintain/sharpen cutter ●Effort required to operate ●Easy to understand ●Within budget ●Peels and cores (bonus) Selection Criteria

24 Pugh Diagram Round 1

25 Feasibility Question: Will grinding rollers need to be replaced? Assume: Industrial rollers can be compared to style used by team, rollers used constantly for 3 months/year, Force from industrial motor > force generate from human power Analysis: Team goal: Product life of greater than 3 years. 2 Manufacturers contacted through phone. Rollers in mills must be replaced after several years in industrial applications Since our application will only have heavy usage for 3 months every year and with less force than used in industrial applications, it is safe to assume the rollers used in our design will not need to be replaced during the lifetime of the product.

26 Feasibility Question: Will the grinder used in Pat 2 be cost effective? Assume: Grinder type already exists, online specifications are accurate Analysis: Country living grain mill Material: high carbon steel burrs – should not need to be replaced Advantages: Will not gum up if shreds are too moist Adjustable coarseness Easier than stone grinders Disadvantages: Will not grind as fine as ceramic grinders Slow and tiring when done by hand ** not as heavily weighted Cost for new set of grinders: $91.47 Feasible: This is a feasible design, however, would be more costly than other options

27 Feasibility Analysis ●How much force is required to grind dried breadfruit? ●Once a particle size is selected we can estimate the grind roller capacity and the force needed to crush the particles. https://html1-f.scribdassets.com/18nnuf2o1sjeg0m/images/3-9d3751ac00.png

30 Selected Concepts

31 Architecture Team 1: Apple peeler with trimming mechanism and grinding rollers Haitian farmers Shredder MSD team Container Haitian farmers Grinder Container Quality test Hand crank Overall machine structure

32 Architecture Haitian farmers Shredder MSD team Container Haitian farmers Grinder Container Quality test Bike power Sam 2: Shredding rollers and Grinding rollers Overall machine structure

33 TRIZ ●Mechanical mortar and pestle Benchmarking: ●Highly technical design ●Uses motors ●High quality (expensive) materials Quick Feasibility: ●Difficult to make tolerances needed ●Difficult to scale to larger size ●Materials most likely will not be available in Haiti ●Design would be robust and would need to be prototyped to determine if flour quality grain sizes are plausible.

34 Risk Assessment

35

36 Updated Project Plan

37 What could we learn from a trip to Haiti? ●Possible market value of our product ●Most/Least popular aspects about our design ●What type of environment our product will spend a majority of its life ●What materials are actually available in Haitian markets

38 Questions? Do you have any design concerns?
