Chair utopia (2)

  1. 1. Collins, Doy, DuPont, McDowell, & Warren LLC. Engineering 120 Section 003
  2. 2. Identify and Design the Problem  Benefit society & the environment  Landfills filling up with recyclable paper products it is necessary to reduce, reuse, and recycle bulky trash like cardboard  This product would be desired by those who want a cheap, easy to store, and sustainable piece of furniture
  3. 3. Assemble a Design Team  GETTING THE RIGHT MIX OF SKILLS  CLARIFYING EACH PERSON’S ROLE  TEAM LEADER  PROJECT MANAGER  MUTUAL RESPECT  OPEN COMMUNICATION  MONITORING PROGRESS  COMMITMENT TO THE PROJECT
  4. 4. Constraints and Criteria  Constraints:  Chair made from only free corrugated cardboard,  Storable underneath a bed, may not be made from pre assembled boxes, glue, tape, or fasteners  Time  Manufacturability  Criteria:  Ergonomic  Supportive of a 250 pound person  Marketable  Easy to assemble
  5. 5. Search for Solutions  Be Knowledgeable  Identify the Critical Parameters  Using vision  Employing Engineering Principles  Brainstorming
  6. 6. Analyze Each Potential Solution  Option A Chair made with no arm rests and 5 parallel sections and 4 perpendicular slots for the back  Option B A chair with armrest Solid back and 3 parallel Sections and 5 perpendicular
  7. 7. Choose the Best Solution  Option C  A chair with armrest  100 degree seat angle  7 Parallel panels  7 Perpendicular support panels  Solid Back
  8. 8. Document the Solution  Communicate Design Plan  Complete Detailed Design  Construction of Solution
  9. 9. Product Positioning Statement For tired men and women who need a great place to sit down, ChairUtopia is a cardboard chair that has great support, armrests for comfort, and even folds away for storage. Unlike standard metal, wood, and plastic chairs, our product preserves the environment by using 100% recycled cardboard Key Design Features: Foldable to conserve space, Armrests, Cheap and Affordable Goals in the Design: We aim to keep the cost of our chair as low as possible while maximizing safety and durability. Our optimal design is a stylish ergonomically sound chair foldable for storage in just a few easy steps. Estimated selling price for the Master Chair: $15.00 Our team derived this price for our chair by adding up the labor costs associated with making the parts for our chair. Our cardboard is 100% recycled and is free so no part of the costs goes to cover costs of material.
