1. INTRODUCTION In order for a product to be successful, the firms have to identify the needs of the customer and make the product according to the needs and within the cost and the time margin. And there exists certain criteria or steps for the development of the product. – Planning – Concept development – Architectural (system-level) design – Detailed design – Testing and refinement – Production design and ramp-up This coursework, detailed about a Mechatronics design model. Section 2 is describing the design methodology. Section 3 is detailing about the design process of Rotary Inverted Pendulum and section 4 contains the conclusion. 2. DESIGN METHODOLOGY 2.1 Ulrich And Eppinger Design Model The method of Karl Ulrich and Eppinger…show more content…
This will represent and analysis in the later evaluation of the product. From the perspective of the individual whose sole purpose is to create a successful product, there exist certain factors which comes as the initial stage of the development of the product. • Product quality: Determining on how good the product is resulting from the development effort. Also whether the product is robust and reliable. • Product cost: Determining the manufacturing cost of the product and also if the product is on sale in the market it would turn to give profit. • Development time: Determining how much time is requires for the completion of the product and that too with the team’s full efforts. 2.1.2 SYSTEM DESIGN: This step explains the cross-domain solution concept, based on requirement list and it helps to describe the characteristics of physical and logical…show more content…
This method is not standard in many engineering institutes because this method misused easily and also French design method, it’s easy to understand and sequential procedure with feedback.The Main drawback of this model is its process ends in working drawing. Pahl and Beitz’s approach is based on an older thinking compared to the modern systematic design. Also, this model fails in the setting that is if the members are at a different location it impacts the overall product. In the case of Ulrich and Eppinger due to the fact that each objective or task is being distributed to different sections of the team the end result will a combined effort and that too in an effective manner.In this design process, Ulrich and Eppinger method is used because in this development of the product each section work parallel. Changes possible are at any stages. 3. DESIGN PROCESS: ROTARY INVERTED PENDULUM PROTOTYPE 3.1 USER REQUIREMENT SPECIFICATIONS (URS): Rotary inverted pendulum is a fundamental benchmark in education and research in control theory and Mechatronics systems. This type of products has a lot of scope in the
