Timeline Detail: Kick-Off Meeting/Concept Discussion
This event serves as the project kick-off. Lehigh and Broughal teammates meet for the first time at the Broughal Middle School during the regular ME 240 lecture period.
During the meeting, the Broughal "customers" present their ideas for their vehicles to the Lehigh "manufacturers". The concept may consist of a sketch, an image or even a model made using Google "Sketch-up" or similar software.
The teams discuss the concept possibilities and how the limitations imposed by the project constraints (e.g.mold size, injection molding process, CAD skill level, etc) may impact production of the final vehicle.
By the end of the meeting, teams have agreed on a concept that they will pursue for the remainder of the project.
