The Good!


The Ugly…..

In The News


Pacific Gas & Electric, Northern
California’s Major Utility, Is Announcing A
Commitment On Wednesday To Purchase
550 Megawatts Of Solar Power To Be
Generated By Trough

Investing In US Solar Power?

Pringle Shipping

Design Challenge


The Makers Of Pringle Potato Chips,
Has Decided To Run A Promotion To
Increase The Sales Of The Chip


They Believe That If Everyone Could
Just Taste The Chip, They Would
Like It Enough To Buy Them

Your Challenge


It Is Your Job To Design A Package To
Mail One Chip To Every Household In
America


The Package Must Be Light To Save
Money


The Chip Has To Arrive In One Piece For
Good Appearance

Testing


We Will Simulate Shipping And Handling By
Placing The Chips In A Postal Bin With Other
Typical Mailing Materials


Shake Bin First to Randomize, Then Drop


We Will Then Drop The Bin From A Height Of 6
Feet To Model Being Dropped Off A Truck


We Will Then Drop The Individual Chips From A
Height Of 10 Feet, Followed By Rolling Them
Down A Flight Of Stairs Which Will Simulate
Handling In A Mail Sorting Facility

Scoring Factors


Weight of the final package (10 pts)

Engineering Design Process


We Will Follow A Standard Design
Process


Document on White Boards for Sharing
and Discussion



Steps in The Design Process


Identify The Problem


In This Case The Problem Has Already Been
Supplied


Research The Problem


Since We Do Not Have Research Assess, Simulate
This Step By Brainstorming Possible Solutions


Develop Possible Solutions


Develop At Least Two Possible Solutions To The
Problem


Select A Solution


Explain Why You Selected That Solution




Steps in The Design Process


Construct A Prototype


Make A Drawing Of The Prototype You Constructed


Test And Evaluate Solution


Describe The Testing And Evaluation Process You
Went Through To Come Up With Your Final Solution.


Share The Solution


This Will Be Done When The Pringles Are Opened


Redesign


Explain Any Redesign Work You Did




Guidelines


Prototype Development and Construction
Should Be Completed Within 60 Minutes
Followed By Final Testing and Evaluation


Intermediate Test and Redesign is OK
