Lesson Plan 5: Final Technical Report

Overview
Students will discuss the solutions generated for each subsystem and ensure that the system requirements are being met. Students will begin to develp the final drawings and plans for their subsystem. The creation of these plans will closely follow that of engineering and design firms. Should there be any requests for changes, the appropriate forms must be completed. This will help students maintain a level of quality assurance and accountability.

Objectives

Students will be able to:
  1. Produce a final technical report detailing the design and operation of a subsystem that meets the needs and requirements of the system and adheres to design specifications.

Activities
  1. Review the comments provided by other classes on your subsystem design and modify your design as necessary.
  2. Discuss and resolve and conflicts that may exist between your subsystems and others.
  3. Develop a final technical report that may include but is not limited to the following:
    • Overview, drawings, schematics, materials, parts list, calculations, operation procedures
    • Use Technical Report Guideline
  4. Post the class final technical report to Collaboration Central.

Assessment

Students should complete and submit Daily Log forms. Students identify what they have done for the day. They note materials, tools, and resources used. Special attention is paid to any problems that the students had, and how other components might affect their component. Students' contributions to technical report should be noted and assessed, either individually or a part of group work.
