Lesson 2: End of life analysis. R106. This page must be completed in detail and you must explain clearly what happens at each stage of a torch's life during manufacturing. Use the powerpoint to help you produce 2 slides in powerpoint or word. Choose a torch from the torch powerpoint slides and annotate 1 torch picture only. Ensure to write about the different stages of the product life cycle:

  • Material Extraction
  • Manufacturing
  • Packaging
  • Transportation
  • Useful life
  • Recycling

Use the knowledge organiser to help you complete this task.

Lesson 3: Torch disassembly R106. Using the powerpoint link below explain how you disassembled the torch with Mr Gregson and explain the following in as much detail as you can:

  • How easy is it to maintain the torch?
  • Is the torch easy to recycle? Why?
  • DFMA (Design for manufacture assembly) How has the torch been manufactured so that it can be easily assembled after manufacture?
  • How has the torch been designed so that it can be used easily?
  • What tools can be used to disassemble or repair the torch if broken?
  • Safety. Are there any safety hazards with the torch.

Use the following knowledge organiser to help you answer this task.

Specification R108- Worksheet

Lesson 2: Manufacturing plan. R108. You must have a completed manufacturing plan of how you are going to make your prototype. In this plan you must explain what tools, materials and time scales will be needed to make your prototype. Use the blank worksheet below to complete your manufacturing plan.

Remember to include comments on Health and Safety!

Lesson 3:

A. Risk Assessment. You must ensure to have a completed risk assessment for R108. Think of all the equipment in the workshop that you will use to make your prototype. RAG rate them (Red= Dangerous, Amber= potential risk or hazard, Green= no risk) Use the following worksheet to help plan this task and record it on the table provided. Are there any control measures in place? ie is there anything in place to REDUCE RISKS? such as safety guards, emergency stops etc.

Lesson 4:

Final design improvements (R108). Look at your final design.- how can you improve it further? Use the attached worksheet to help you plan 4 possible changes to your design. Use annotations and drawings to show how you could improve it further. Make sure your comments relate to your specification (from lesson 1 above) Make changes by possibly considering the following:

  • Aesthetics
  • Materials
  • Function- reduce the size or features
  • Environmental aspects

Use the following worksheet to help you with this exercise. This must be completed on your return to NUSA!
