Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

SCENARIO:

1 x existing muncher (A) has installed to a control panel about 25 meters apart. The existing muncher (A) is about 7 meters deep in confined space in line with the sewer main pipe line.
1. Client wants to install another muncher (B) parallel to existing (A) in the same sewer line.
2. A new 7 meters confined space will be dug up and existing muncher A will be relocated and another new muncher B will be installed in parallel in the same confined space.
3. Muncher A will operate for a week and muncher B will be the backup (slave).
4. Following week Muncher B will operate and A will be back up (slave).
5. Both munchers are on timers 1 week on 1 week off.
6. If muncher A is operating for its normal week, and assume it goes to fault (blocked or jammed) automatically Muncher B will start up.
7. If muncher B is operating for its normal week, and assume it goes to fault (blocked or jammed) automatically Muncher A will start up.
8. Install an electrical interlock between 2 munchers to prevent both muncher operating at the same time, because of the forward and reverse function per muncher the interlock will prevent both pumps starting up together and start operating against each other. i.e. muncher A is operating in forward position for 5 minutes and backwards for 5, at the same time muncher B is operating in opposite direction to A. This will cause the munchers working against each other and create a major blockage and eventually the munchers will burn out.

Bachelor of Engineering Technology
1 MG7001 ENGINEERING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT
This can be an existing work based project that you, the candidate have had direct responsibility for all of or some significant parts of. The project should be able to demonstrate the graduate profile attributes.
For current industry based candidates, the outline below gives some indication of what is required. For students who are not industry based, a suitable project will need to be developed, and agreed with your project supervisor, that meets the requirements of the outline.
Generally, a project should be able to be written and illustrated in such a way as to show how the graduate profile has been met.
AIM
To enable students to investigate an engineering problem; to propose, specify, design and develop a solution and where feasible, to construct and test a prototype.
LEARNING OUTCOMES
On the successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1. Develop a solution for an engineering problem.
2. Complete a project to a specified standard.
3. Design, project manage and evaluate a concept/model/product.
4. Use software application packages as an engineering tool, if required.
5. Communicate effectively with customers, peers, technicians and engineers.
CONTENT
• Theoretical knowledge and practical skills are applied in this practical development project.
• The creation of an effective product, prototype, or proof of concept is the major emphasis of this course.
• Complete the design process.

ASSESSMENT
The Learning Outcomes will be assessed by a combination of:
• Hardware which demonstrates the required functionality – or video or illustrated evidence of actual operational working
• Software which demonstrates the required functionality
• Formal written documentation – diagrams, site meeting notes, project specifications, or other technical information to indicate competence at the required level.
• Oral presentation(s) to peers, staff members and invited guests – Skype or actual presentation of the project to a panel of industry and academic persons who will make the final decision that the submitted work is at the required level for meeting the graduate profile.
• A demonstration of the engineering solution and satisfactory responses to any questions that may be asked. This may occur if the presented material is missing or not clear in some detail to allow a judgement be made by the panel to ensure that the requirements are met.
It would be anticipated that, by utilising an existing work project, 150-200 hours of work would be required to provide a suitable presentation report that demonstrates the required outcomes. This will be over a time frame of 10 months as indicated on the attached Gantt chart.
For a successful project, any work should be able to demonstrate compliance with the following Graduate Profile.
The Graduate Attributes listed are consistent with the exemplar developed by the International Engineering alliance and adopted by the Sydney Accord.
1. Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialization as specified to define and applied engineering procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.
2 Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse broadly defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to the discipline or areas of specialization
3 Design solutions for broadly-defined engineering technology problems and contribute to the design of systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations
4 Conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, databases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.
5 Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
6 Demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to engineering technology practice and solutions to broadly defined engineering problems.
7 Understand and evaluate the sustainability and impact of engineering technology work in the solution of broadly defined engineering problems in societal and engineering contexts.

8 Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practice.
9 Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams
10 Communicate effectively on broadly-defined engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
11 Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member or leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
12 Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in specialist technologies.
These 12 graduate attributes have a similar theme to the Competence Elements that are required to be demonstrated for IPENZ membership. If you are already collating information for IPENZ membership, the same information can be used for his paper.
HOW IS THIS ACHIEVED?
The project can either be an actual project that you have had significant input and control of to meet the graduate outcomes or it could be a project specifically undertaken to meet the requirements of this paper.
In other words you personally must have had significant decision making, design, supervision of others, project planning and monitoring, financial planning and monitoring and risk management and be able to demonstrate what you did to meet the 12 graduate outcomes.
PROJECT OUTLINE
From the start date shown on the spreadsheet, you have a 4 week period to develop and submit a Project Outline.
The intention of the project outline is for you to demonstrate that the selected project meets the requirements:
Meets the 12 graduate attributes.·
Outlines what you personally did·
Outlines the aspects that you personally did, that encompass· significant decision making, design, supervision of others, project planning and monitoring, financial planning and monitoring and risk management
How you would see the timeline fitting with your current and future· work commitments – there may be some leeway in timing as work commitments delay progress.
A Gantt chart (either MS Project or EXCEL) outlining your projected· progress
How you would anticipate the final presentation being undertaken – by,· for example, adobe connect, skype, in person and so on. The final presentation is where a panel, usually 3 people, review and discuss with you how your project meets the requirements.

PROGRESS REPORTS
The six progress reports can be relatively brief bullet point lists outlining progress against plan and outlining any actions required to bring the project back on track if it has slipped.
The purpose of these reports is to give both you and me some indication of progress tracking and also an opportunity to redirect or re focus on any specific aspects causing a possible issue. They are not marked events but do need to be professional in their content and presentation.
FINAL PRESENTATION – First Draft
This is essentially an opportunity to demonstrate the contents of your final presentation and is an opportunity for any changes if required, to be suggested. This will be 90% finalised with only some minor changes possibly being required before the final report submission.
There is no prescribed layout for the final report, however it would be anticipated that a hard copy report with the usual sections be presented for submission along with a series of Power Point slides to summarise the project and explain the work you actually did to demonstrate competence. Following presentation of the draft report a ‘markers report’ will be issued outlining with reasons why any changes need to be made.
FINAL REPORT
This is as the name suggests, the final written report and folio of evidence that will be read and discussed with you by the panel when you have your professional discussion.
The report needs to be hard copy, well presented and laid out and contain all of the aspects you consider necessary to convince the panel that you have meet the requirements and the Graduate Attributes.
The report should contain an Executive Summary (abstract) and a brief explanation of how each graduate outcome has been met by what you did in the project.
The balance of the report will show what was done in the project and what you did. In particular, any aspects that required problem solving or more complex decision making need to be highlighted.
You should also include the Power Points (or similar) that you will be using on your Final Presentation and Professional Discussion.
This needs to be presented in hard copy and electronically.
FINAL PRESENTATION & PROFESSIONAL DISCUSSION
The purpose of the presentation and professional discussion is to confirm your understanding of the project and how you have met the Graduate Attributes.
