Capstone Project

Assignment help- Finance

Report Structure

It is a capstone project. That means it should implements all tools that were covered in all academic courses such as Accounting, Finance, Strategy, Business Performance, and Operations Management. The report is suggested to be in the following structure:

  • Executive Summary
  • Outline “table of contents”
  • Analysis and Discussion
  • Conclusion and Recommendation

Analysis and Discussion

Here, it should cover the following:

  1. External Analysis
    1. Macro Environment
    2. Market; “size dynamics…”
    3. Customers; “segments, size, expectation, bargaining power…”
    4. Suppliers
    5. Competitors; “size, position, financial performance…”
    6. Industry analysis tools such as five forces, PESTEL
  2. Internal Analysis
    1. What does the startup provide?
    2. What are the key functions requirements? “Marketing, finance, Human Resources, and processes…”
    3. What are the key resources required?
  3. Assessment of available Strategic Options
    1. Propose Strategy # 1Identify and discuss Required Business Model Evaluate Competitive advantage
    2. Propose Strategy # 1Identify and discuss Required Business Model Evaluate Competitive advantage
    3. Assess Potential Financial Statements of all proposals

Recommendations and Conclusion

It should contain the following:

  1. Most Valuable B.M and why
  2. List of action with time plan
  3. Financial forecasts (P&L, Cash flow, NPV, and ROI)
  4. KPI’s that will be implemented to monitor the performance and ensure meeting targets
  5. Potential risks and corresponding mitigation plans.

EGN 4923-Engineering Design


Engineering Design- EGN 4923

Design Project Report Guidelines

Soft Copy and Binded Hard Copy Due to Instructor

Report Contents / Format

Cover Page

  • Abu Dhabi Men’s College.
  • Title – All capital letters, font size 16-20
    • Report for Engineering Design –  EGN 4923
    • Your Design project titleNames of team members (one per line, font size 16)
  • Term, Date
  • You may choose to add a logo on top of the title.

Table of Contents

1. Abstract – Executive Summary:

This section consists of an overview of the entire report, beginning with the motivation for the project and ending with a brief description of the project and results.  The section should be about 1 page long.

2. Market Analysis Information:

General need for product –

  • Products are developed in response to needs of end users for improved interaction with their environment in order to perform a task.

Description and estimation of market size –

  • Estimated on starting up in the Abu Dhabi area.

Benchmarking on competitive products–

  • Benchmark any competitive products and determine what performance criteria you will have to meet or exceed. This is primarily a research exercise. Define all criteria.

Patent study –

  • Describe your search process including classifications that were useful to you.

Opportunities for competitive advantage –

  • State clearly the aspects in which your design will provide a competitive edge over the current competing products and those that you judge less important for this product.

3. Problem Identification:

Problem Statement:

  • Describe the needs that are not met by any product on the market today. Determine what and why problems exist with the current product or way of doing the task.  Your solution should overcome these problems.

Physics of Task, Artifact or System:

  • This section must include a fundamental engineering analysis of the forces, moments, accelerations, etc., supplied by the end user (or other system element) in the absence of your design. Begin your analysis with a detailed and accurate free-body diagram of your product (or system) in action in its use environment.

4. House of Quality:

Develop the inputs for the House of Quality (HoQ) and describe them. Create a formal HoQ to translate your previously identified customer requirements (CRs) into CTQ engineering characteristics (ECs).

Customer requirements –

  • Develop a list (with definitions) of customer requirements. This comprehensive listing must be ordered by importance.

Engineering characteristics –

  • Create a working list (with definitions) of physical features, variables or performance metrics that describe the artifact you are designing in part or in whole (as required).

Build and interpret HoQ –

  • Use the HoQ to determine key Engineering Characteristics. Comment on the results from your HoQ process and analysis.

Constraints –

  • Identify any constraints in the design of your product.

5. Conceptual Design Process:

  • Present a Set of Three (3) Feasible Concepts: Follow the same format as used in class notes for the Aluminum can crusher and BRD.
  • Provide labeled sketches and a description of how the product will function, integrating part numbers.
  • Describe your reason for including each design as a feasible alternative, its strengths and weaknesses.

Concept Selection Process:

  • Use a Pugh Chart to determine the top three feasible concepts. Explain the results.
  • Use the hierarchical objective tree process to create weight factors for your decision characteristics.
  • Using the weighted decision matrix, decide which design is the most promising? Explain your rationale for the final decision

Final Concept Sketch and Description:

  • Prepare a new, detailed, labeled sketch of the design you are developing for your project.
  • Write a narrative section describing how your device will work, using the labels from your sketch.
  1. Product Design Specification – “PDS”:

Update the PDS for your product. It should follow the guidelines in class notes.  Format your PDS in a condensed, table-like way.  All sections should be complete.

7. Embodiment Design Process:

Complete the steps required in this stage of design, explain the rationale for your decisions, and highlight design decisions made using specific DFA, DFM or other DFX practices that will simplify manufacturing and assembly.

Determine and develop the following:

Product Architecture

Configuration Design and provide part layout.

Which parts to purchase and which to fabricate.

Parametric Design for custom parts.

  • Determine part geometry and features with tolerances.
  • Select material(s): provide options and rationale for selection.

8. Manufacturing and Process Cost Analysis:

Describe the manufacturing processes for each part that is not outsourced.

Describe the assembly processes needed to make the final assembly.

Estimate Product Cost.

9. Conclusions on Designed Product:

Summarize Design Project Results.

Recommendations for Future Design–

  • What does your team recommend as the next step in the development of your product? Do you have a successful, profitable product that is ready for commercialization? Do you recommend particular design refinements to overcome predicted failures or inadequacies? Has your design process uncovered inventive ideas that are ready to patent or are worthy of more development?

Reflection on the Design Process:

  • Write a few paragraphs on the strengths and weaknesses of the design process your team followed and the tools used in the course. Include insights into the project that were gained from the process.

10.  List of References.

 

11. APPENDIX- CAD Drawings

Parts list

  • Each component must be identified separately with a name and number. These are to be used throughout the set of engineering designs.
  • Indicate if part is made or purchased (supplier and model number for purchased parts)
  • Include material for all parts that are not out-sourced.

Create Individual part drawings with dimensions

  • (use number scheme in parts list)
  • Create Key Sub-Assembly Drawings
  • Create Complete Assembly Drawing

 

Professionalism

  • Quality of Report throughout including: writing clarity, narrative and visual formatting, grammar, use of appropriate citation style and in text referencing, etc.
  • Statement on the contribution of each team member, including a brief paragraph on the contribution of each team member.
  • Bibliography: To avoid plagiarism, you should cite the sources of your information (including web site URL’s) throughout the report. List of these references to be provided at end of report.
