University of Central Florida Candidate Design Selection Memorandum

University of Central Florida Candidate Design Selection Memorandum

Description

Write a memo that presents your group’s candidate designs’ defining characteristics.

  • Your boss would like you to describe both candidate designs and compare and contrast them. Therefore, this information should be in the opening section.
  • You also should present your design process in the memo in detail. Therefore, the middle section should include a discussion of the group’s customer needs and the group’s engineering specifications.
  • You should provide insight into the impact of the design review process on creating your candidate designs to provide your boss with additional context on how the experience impacted the creation of candidate designs. Please explain why the design review process didn’t impact your candidate’s designs. This information should also be provided in the middle section.
  • Be sure to ask your boss for action in the closing of the memo.
  • The appendix of the memo should begin on page 2. The items in the appendix can be identical between group members. Note that you may use figures and tables from your Design Review. But ensure they have the proper format. You must include the following items in your memo’s appendix:
    • Properly formatted table of your group’s customer needs, engineering specifications, and candidate designs 
      • Figures and tables must be centered on the page.
      • Figure labels should be placed below the figure, and table labels should be placed above the table. Please ask if you are in doubt about what a table is and what a figure is.
      • Each label must be descriptive. Descriptive means the label allows for the content of the figure or table to be understood outside of the document’s context.
      • The label should begin with “Figure #_” or “Table #_” where it follows that tables are numbered chronologically in order of appearance in the document starting at Table 1, and figures are labeled chronologically in order of appearance in the document starting at 1 as well.
