4. Project Timetable

The IC operates 5 days a week from 0830 to 1700. Normal project days in the summer are from Monday to Thursday. In these project days, you have to follow the IC timetable and sign in/out from your supervisor's office. Friday is not a normal project day but you may at your discretion to work at your own pace. You should observe the IC rules related to timekeeping during the timetabled project periods.

During the timetabled project periods (i.e. Monday to Thursday), facilities will be available for manufacturing activities. It is anticipated there will be a high demand for the use of equipment in some of the workshops. You are therefore requested to plan your work carefully and make your booking in advance (normally 3 days). Any urgent requests should be made to the Unit In-charge of the Shop in which the work is to be done.

Work after 17:00 is not encouraged. You are advised to plan and monitor your progress carefully. However, if it is found that the projects cannot be completed on time, you have to make your own arrangement with your supervisor and the Unit In-charge on overtime work. It is better to work on a tight schedule at the early stage of the project in order to avoid any last minute rush.

Students are reminded that the project must be completed before making the presentation.

6. Points to be noted by MU project students

6.1 Safety Matters

You are required to discuss with your supervisor any potential hazards that may be associated with the project.

Suitable safety shoes and aprons are to be worn at all times while working in the IC workshops.

Safety precautions are to be taken in all workshop operation/processes, assembly and trial tests. (Your project supervisor will assess your working methods as part of the project assessment.)

6.2 Progress Report

Daily Report - It is expected that you will keep in contact with your supervisor and report to him the daily progress of your work.

Weekly Report - Weekly formal meetings are to be held with your supervisor. The meetings are to be chaired by a leader and minutes should be taken by a secretary nominated by the group.

Project Dairy - You are strongly advised to keep a daily project diary of what has been done during the day. This would help you in preparing your final report as well as the presentation at the end of the project.

6.3 Materials

Your Supervisor will advise you on this matter. Usually materials can be obtained from the IC store. You have to complete a Material Requisition Form giving details of the material/part you want. The MRF has to be signed by your supervisor before drawing material from the store.

A minimal sum of petty cash is made available for the purchase of small items below HK$500. The cost of bought out parts/material can be refunded only when the following conditions are met:

a. Prior approval is obtained from your Supervisor before the material is purchased.

b. Valid purchasing receipts are provided.

c. The receipts must clearly indicate the cost, proper description of the items (in English) and the title of the project.

Stationary, photos and slides for the project presentation/report are to be borne by the students. You should make your own plan in taking photos/slides in the course of manufacturing.

6.4 Booking of Facilities

The IC-S1 Form "Application for IC Facilities" is to be used for booking workshops facilities. Before booking, you should consult the Unit Leader concerned to check whether the equipment will be available at the time required.

The form should be endorsed by your supervisor and it should be submitted to the Unit Leader concerned 3 days in advance. Should you have any urgent request for equipment booking, you should put it through your Supervisor who will make special arrangement for your request.

At least 1 lathe and 1 milling machine will be allocated for each project group in the Basic Machine Shop or the Toolroom for the manufacturing of parts. Any special machine such as CNC, grinding machine, boring machine can be booked through the relevant section leader.

6.5 Use of CAD Facilities

Detailed drawings are to be done in the IC CAD Rooms as allocated by your supervisor.

You are not allowed to bring any floppy diskettes into the IC CAD Rooms. If drawing data backup is required, you must bring along several new floppy diskettes with your name printed on each diskette and pass them to a designated DO staff/TA who will format the floppy diskettes for you. It should be noted that no floppy diskettes are allowed to be used in the Design Office except those formatted by the DO staff. All these floppy disks should be returned to the DO after each day's work.

You have the responsibility to tidy up the workplace after use.

6.6 Project Presentation

This is an important part of the project. You are reminded to leave sufficient time for the preparation of the presentation. Good planning would usually help.

6.7 Marking Scheme

The marking scheme consists of two parts - the project and the presentation.

6.8 Final Report

You have to hand in a final report within 2 weeks upon completion of the project.
