Project 3 Report and Competition Grading Guidelines ME 286 Engineering Design: The Process ***Subject to change In general, any technical report or memo should adhere to the following guidelines regardless of its overall format. These guidelines are typically covered in technical writing courses. Here are the guidelines that I hold to be absolutely critical to a good report: 1. Any supporting material, e.g. tables or figures, must be referenced in the text body of the report. If

you do not reference it, then why include it? Label figures as Table # or Figure # and always reference from the text, using “Table #” or “Fig. #.”

2. If possible, integrate the reference material directly into the body of the document. This is certainly true for figures and reasonably sized tables. If you include a great deal of information, then consider appending it to the end of the document and referencing it in the text.

3. Technical reports should include 1) an executive summary of the information (something a supervisor or customer several levels up might read); 2) an introduction that also lays out the scope of the report and the motivation for it; 3) the approach taken in conducting the work; 4) the results of the work; 5) conclusions drawn from the results and their impact; and 6) references cited.

4. Clear and succinct writing. Make your points and support them in clear terms. DO NOT use 25 words when only ten are needed!

5. Paragraphs and sections show flow smoothly between (i.e. have transitions that link each paragraph together and link one section to the next).

Skeleton for Project 3 Report -Title Page -Executive Summary (1-2 paragraphs, one figure maximum) -Table of Contents I. Introduction A. Motivation B. Scope and Limitations II.

Note: Each team is expected to turn in ONE final report. For the sections marked “INDIVIDUAL” on the rubric, provide a group introduction to the section in the report and then label each subsection with the Device number and name of the individual responsible for the device that is discussed in that subsection. For example:

 Section 2.4: Proof of Concepts Proof of concepts were created to … The following subsections detail each device’s proof of concepts and the conclusions drawn from …

o Section 2.4.1: POC of Device 1 (Louie Lumberjack) o Section 2.4.2: POC of Device 2 (Bennie Beaver) o Section 2.4.3: POC of Device 3 (Donald Duck)
