Modern market is setting manufacturers in an ongoing quest to cut manufacturing costs in order to maintain profitability. The purpose of this event is to help identify areas where manufacturers can reduce the cost, time and input material required to produce a product into the market through a systematic method of modifying the existing production technique used.
In Ingenieur the Participant will aim to find the most optimum path from Raw Material to Finished Goods, in terms of quantity, quality, cost, speed and efficiency.
• This is a team event, where each team consists of four to six members. Students from different educational institutions can make a team.
• The event consists of three rounds.
• The first round will be a written quiz of one hour duration roughly based on engineering or anything related to technology or engineering. Teams qualifying from the aforementioned quiz shall qualify for the main event.
•. The main event will require the qualified teams to complete a task in the stipulated time, the dimensions and relevant details of which shall be provided by the organizers.
• The next round consists of an oral presentation (preferably power-point) to be done by the teams that took part in the main event. The presentation should contain all the details of the product produced including process followed, time taken, cost analysis and wastage of raw materials provided.
• The eventual winner would be declared from the cumulative performance of all the three rounds.
• The members of the winning team of this event shall be awarded a winner certificate while the other teams that took part in the main event (round two) shall be awarded participation certificates
• Incomplete or improper products shall be rejected outright. Teams submitting such products shall be allowed to participate in the third round although their scores from the second round will not be counted for the final evaluation.
• Cost effectiveness will be considered for evaluation purposes. The teams must mention the same in their presentation. The team with the more cost effective product shall be awarded better marks.
• Modularity of design
• The teams must take care of the amount of raw materials they waste in the process of making the product. The same has also to be mentioned in the presentation.
• Time management is also necessary to fetch you more marks. A total of 4 hours shall be given to each team to manufacture their product exceeding which marks will be deducted on the basis of 10 marks per every half an hour. However, no points shall be awarded for completing the task before the stipulated time.
• The teams must also mention the procedure they used for the manufacturing, the flow of activities at the venue of the event as well as the layout they considered for the process.
• Accepted, that beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder; but, teams must take serious care of the finishing and other aesthetic aspects of their final product. The teams submitting better products in this regard will stand a good stead in obtaining more marks.
• Yet another important criterion for the evaluation is the closeness of the team’s production procedure with the actual planned procedure of manufacturing the product at hand.
• Time effectiveness of producing the product will be evaluated. The teams shall mention the time taken in performing each activity as a part of their manufacturing procedure. As mentioned before, crossing the time limit warrants deduction of marks.
• The teams must lay special emphasis on the robustness of the product they produce. Submission of different parts of the product separately warrants disqualification from the competition.
• The cumulative scores of the three rounds shall be considered for the final evaluation. The team with the highest cumulative score shall be declared winner.
• The organizers hold the right to change, relax or tighten any of the above mentioned points as deemed fit by them.
• The decision of the jury shall be final and binding on all participants.
Innovative ideas for the development of the product assigned in any other way will be highly appreciated. The world thrives on innovations and as engineering students; we owe a responsibility to make life better and simpler. Please note that these innovative ideas shall not be considered for evaluative purposes.
If the participants are given a task of making a computer table, the material, design and dimensions specified. They have to form a process plan of how they would go about it. What would be the first step and why. Would the process they use allow muti-tasking (a modular design), how long will it take, will this process cost the least, how many tables can they produce each day and various such analysis. After identifying the most effective options, they will be asked to fabricate the table according to their proposed process pan to check its applicability and adaptability in a real life situation.
