To complete  it     you  must:     Draw  a  maximum     of  four  ini/al  designs  


GENERATION OF  IDEAS  –  1  (p3)  

You must:   •     Present  up  to  four  ideas   •     Use  technical  language   to  annotate  each  sketch   •   Include  references  to  the   specifica/on   •     Show  front,  back  and   inside  views  as  appropriate   •   Use  any  suitable  graphic   media  to  present  the  ideas   (pencils  rather  than  pens!)  


GENERATION OF  IDEAS  –  2  (p4)   You  will  complete  this   secEon  on  the  proper  CAT   pages  –handing  them  in   once  finished   To  complete  it  you  must:     Present  your  best  IniEal  Design     Explain  why  you  think  it’s  the  best   one.     Gather  other’s  views  of  your  work     Present  a  Revised  Design  using   the  opinions  you  gathered  


GENERATION OF  IDEAS  –  2  (p4)

This is  your  own  opinion  but  it  would  be  useful  to  refer  it  to   one  or  two  specificaEon  points  


GENERATION OF  IDEAS  -­‐  2)  Gather  other’s  views:  

Ask your  classmates  what  they  think  about  your   design  and  get  them  to  write  it  down.     If  you  are  asked  be  truthful,  some/mes  it  is  very   useful  to  have  ‘nega/ve’  comments  as  designs   can  be  vastly  improved  from  sugges/ons  made.     Remember  to  give  sugges/ons  for  any  changes   you  would  make.    It  might  help  to  think:  “How   would  I  make  this  product?”     Add  your  response  to  the  sugges/ons  and  if  you   will  use  any  of  them  in  the  boaom  box  


GENERATION OF  IDEAS  -­‐  2)  Revised  Design:  

Use the  final  box  to  present   your  revised  design.     Remember  to  point  out  the   changes  you  have  made   from  your  classmate’s   sugges/ons.     This  doesn’t  need  to  be  in   colour

PLAN THE  MAKE  (p12)  

Mark 5  –  6 7  –  8 9  –  10

To complete  it  you  must:     •   Plan  the  stages  and  processes  needed   to  manufacture  the  product     •   Es/mate  the  /me  over  a  number  of   weeks  needed  to  manufacture  the   product-­‐  include  a  simple  Gana  chart  for   produc/on     •   Include  a  detailed  step  by  step  plan   (flowchart)  of  the  stages  needed  to   manufacture  the  product.  Use  the   correct  symbols  for  input,  process,  QC   and  output  as  used  in  industry     •   Use  ICT  

AAainment    A  list  of  realis/c  manufacturing  steps  is  evident.  The  steps  contain  some  detail  of  the  processes    required.  There  is  an  aaempt  to  quan/fy  the  /me  needed.    A  list  of  realis/c  manufacturing  steps  is  evident.  The  steps  contain  some  detail  of  the  processes    required  and  note  any  constraints.  There  is  a  realis/c  es/mate  of  the  /me  needed  to  manufacture  the    outcome.    A  clear,  appropriate  and  detailed  list  of  manufacturing  steps  is  evident.  Constraints  have  been    recognised.  There  is  a  realis/c  es/mate  of  the  /me  needed  to  manufacture  the  outcome.  


PLAN THE  MAKE  (p12):  GANNT  CHART  

Gannt Charts  can  be  produced  in  ‘wriaen’  in  different  ways.    However,   as  long  as  they  show  a  clear  /me  plan  for  making  your  product,  either   way  is  fine.   Break  down  the  making  of  your  product  into  individual  tasks,  how  many  lessons  will  it  take  you   to  make  the  whole  product?    Work  on  the  basis  that  you  have  10  hours  (8  lessons!)  to  make  it.  


PLAN THE  MAKE  (p12):  FLOW  CHART   See  next  page   for  more  Flow   Chart  help…  


PLAN THE  MAKE  (p12):  FLOW  CHART   Different  shapes  mean  different  things  (all  these  shapes  can  be  found  in  office  souware  i.e.  word,   powerpoint,  publisher)   Used  at  the  beginning  and  end  of  your  flow  chart   Used  for  inputs  and  output Input  e.g.  –  fabric,  thread,  drawstring,  energy Output  e.g  –  completed  product  

Used for  a  process  e.g.  machine  hem,  cut  fabric     A  decision  or  quality  control  point  e.g.  check  machine  s/tching,  use   connectors  (lines/arrows)  to  show  the  ‘yes’  and  ‘no’  paths
