Paper Description

Edit Paper Description Content

Using Project Based Learning (PBL), this paper will furnish the student with an understanding of the innovation and product development process. It will explain the different levels of innovation, innovation techniques, how to screen ideas, the types of Intellectual Property and a basic business plan. For the product development part, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools; CAD, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), SolidWorks sustainability, 3D printing and SolidWorks Plastic mould design will be introduced and applied to the project. Each individual or group will present their product idea, prototype and business model at an investor pitch. Teaching is through keynote lectures, videos and case studies in conjunction with face to face or on-line PBL workshops, on-line material on Moodle and Slack team communication.

The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1-WA11. Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/

Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

This paper is taught through one keynote lecture and one Project Based Learning (PBL) workshop session per week. The workshops will include case studies and lectorials to help guide students through the project. The assignment enables students to apply ENGME580 material and that from other engineering papers to undertake product development from idea to prototype.

It is recommended that students work in groups of 3. However, due to Covid, groups of 2 are allowed and it can also be studied individually. The assessment will be based on the quality of the work for the hours allocated:

Three students - 450 hours total study

Two students - 300 hours total study

One student - 150 hours total study

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

The assessment of this paper comprises three linked assignments covering the following aspects:

1. Product Innovation and screening, intellectual property and basic business plan. This will be assessed by interview with two staff. (40%)

2. Product development; customer requirements, modelling, dirty prototyping, design, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) tools, plastic injection mould design, costing, sustainability and 3D printing. This will be assessed by written technical report. (40%)

3. Investor pitch, including prototype demonstration. This will be assessed by presentation to a panel. (20%)

There are marking rubrics for each assignment on Moodle.

Samples of your work may be required as part of the Engineering New Zealand accreditation process for BE(Hons) degrees. Any samples taken will have the student name and ID redacted. If you do not want samples of your work collected then please email the engineering administrator, Natalie Shaw (natalie.shaw@waikato.ac.nz), to opt out.
