Electronic Instrumentation

Project Report Guidelines

each project has the following parts
Each project has the following parts
  • Introduction
  • Background
  • Initial Design
  • Final Design
  • Results and Conclusions
  • Extra Credit (optional)
  • Personal Responsibilities
  • Appendices

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

introduction
Introduction
  • Application Goals
    • What is the project about?
    • What are you trying to achieve with your final design?
  • Educational Goals
    • What topics have we covered in class that influence your understanding of the project?
    • You need to name at least two.

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

background
Background
  • What is the theory that you must understand in order to know what is going on in the project?
  • What does the initial design do and how does it work?
  • Cite references and include in appendix
    • web sites (include a link name, not a copy)
    • books

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

how to cite references
How to Cite References
  • In your report, put the number of the reference after the information you took from the reference. If you take a direct quote, you need to put it in quotes:
    • Inductors are more complex devices than capacitors. When you use one in a circuit, you not only need to consider the value of the inductance, but also the “DC resistance of the coil, the current-carrying capacity of the coil windings, the breakdown voltage between the coil and the frame, and the frequency range in which the coil is designed to operate.” [1]
  • Do not use too many direct quotes. Try to use your own words:
    • If you try to put more current through an inductor than the coil can handle, it gets hot and could be unsafe. [1]
  • In the appendix, include a list of references

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

initial design
Initial Design
  • Building the initial design
    • How did you build it?
    • What did you learn while building it?
  • Calculations/Measurements/Plots/Circuit Diagrams
      • Include in appendix
      • Tell where these things are located in appendix
      • May repeat in report for clarity
  • How did it work?
    • What results did you get?
    • Is there room for improvement? Where?

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

final design
Final Design
  • Building the final design
    • What did you change?
    • Why did you make these changes?
    • What did you learn while building the final design?
  • Calculations/Measurements/Plots/Circuit Diagrams
      • Include in appendix
      • Tell where these things are located in the appendix
      • May repeat in report for clarity
  • How did it work?
    • What results did you get?
    • Is this an improvement over the initial design?

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

results and conclusions
Results and Conclusions
  • How good are your results?
    • Engineers use quantitative comparisons whenever possible. (i.e. percent error, percent improvement, graphs, tables, etc.)
    • Text should have highlights, trends and general conclusions.
    • You may only have enough data for a qualitative comparison (i.e. better, worse, clearer, etc.)
  • Sources of error
    • What factors caused your results to be less than ideal?
    • Formal error analysis not necessary.
    • What improvements could you make to get better results?
  • Basic conclusions and answers to questions
    • Answer the questions given to you in the project handout.
    • The questions should help you to draw some basic conclusions about the project.

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

extra credit
Extra Credit
  • Discuss anything you did to get extra credit
    • What did you do?
    • Why did you try this?
    • How did it work?
    • Why is it extra credit?

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

personal responsibilities
Personal Responsibilities
  • Decide on tasks that need to be done
  • Assign responsibility for each task to one person
  • Describe who did what
  • Do not just say “We all did everything.”
  • Either do a final review together, or have one person review the final report for clarity and consistency.

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

appendices
Appendices
  • Useful data or results from experiments
  • Information resources
    • From the web
    • From the library or other sources
  • Only attach useful information
    • Useless information will result is a loss of points
    • Explain the purpose of each piece of info

ENGR-4300 Electronic Instrumentation

concise vs brief
Concise vs. Brief
  • Concise is the goal
    • All relevant information included
    • Efficient and specific
    • Make it easy to see what you want to communicate (graphs, charts, tables, etc.)
  • Brief is not the goal
    • Short and general
    • Not all information included
    • Not sufficient for an engineering report

grading 100 points
Grading -- 100 points
  • Projects are graded out of 100 points
  • Each project also has 20 points for participation based on attendance.
  • Each project has a grade sheet for the 80 point report. It is posted on-line.
    • Specific point values assigned to each part for a total of 70 points
    • 10 points for a general assessment of quality, organization and understanding.
