1. Suppose you are a member of the engineering design review committee. List and discuss briefly at least 10 areas that a review committee may throw questions at the design engineer during his/her equipment design review. (2002, 2007) Solution : 1. Reliability – does the design yield the same results without major malfunctions over a designated period of time 2. Maintainability – can the design be kept in a condition of good repair or efficiency through specialized support 3. Adherence to Specifications – does the design follow the parameters outlined by upper management prior to its initiation 4. Value Engineering – has the design been produced with the intention of maintaining or enhancing results while reducing life cycle costs 5. Standardization – does the design comply with industry regulated measurements that are in place to moderate all products and services 6. Reproducibility – can the design be used as a blueprint for future designs, or has the design itself benefited from prior designs to reduce exploration costs 7. Safety – can the design guarantee that no adverse affects or harm will be brought upon the users or maintenance workers handling the product 8. Human Engineering – does the design conform to the limitations and abilities of humans who will be handling or maintaining the product or system 9. Finishing – can the design be manufactured within a reasonable time period to meet deadlines for testing, marketing, and salability 10. Drafting – what was the thought process behind the production of the design, which factors influenced what was implemented and what was discarded

2. Prove that the present worth of annuity is given by: (2000, 2002, 2007, 2008) where PW is the present worth of annuity n is the number of years j is the interest rate R is the periodic payment Solution : The present worth of annuity is the sum of the payment values of all the payments. If a payment R is to be made at the end of the next n years, then: The present worth after the first payment will be: The present worth after the second payment will be: The present worth of annuity after n years will be: → Equation 1 Multiply both sides of Equation 1 by to get: → Equation 2 Subtract Equation 1 from Equation 2 to get: 3. Suppose you are a maintenance manager of an engineering organization. What are the ten most important questions you should ask yourself for the self-evaluation of effectiveness of your maintenance program? (2002, 2007, 2008)
