Transcript of Portfolio Requirements - Stage 6 Industrial Technology Timber

Portfolio Requirements:
Industrial Technology Stage 6

Developed by J. Keith 2013
A Few Things You Should Know:
Due: 12th of August 2014 at 3pm!
Practical Due: 12th August 2014 at 9am

Project and Portfolio are worth 60% of your overall mark.
- of that 60%, 20% is allocated to Design Management and Communication (your portfolio) and 40% to Production (your project).
There is now an 80xA4 or 40xA3 page limit on portfolios.
-This is for pages with printing only on one side (counts as 2 pages if both are used)
- note if using a combination of sizes, 1xA3 page = 2xA4.
- page count also includes title, contents and reference pages
You can accompany your portfolio/ project with maximum of 6min of video or multimedia.
- great way to show them how well it works or the purpose it serves...
Portfolio Parameters:
The folio should be presented in an A4 or A3 folder.

A clear and easily read font equivalent in size to 12-point Times New Roman should be used for text.

Folio pages should be numbered.

Remember no more then 80 x A4 or 40 x A3!!!
Your Portfolio should include all of the following headings
Headings For Your Industrial Technology Portfolio:
• Statement of intent
• Research
• Sketching and idea generation
• Prototyping - modeling and testing
• Production and working drawings (+ a CAD Drawing)
• Selection and justification of appropriate -materials, -processes and -resources
• Evidence of project management including a record of the production of the project
• Timeline and Action plan
– projected order of production including estimation and evaluation of time allocation
• Finance plan
– projected cost and an analysis of actual costs of materials and services (if applicable)
• Evidence of WHS and safe working practices
• Appropriateness of design and/or design modification
• Evidence of a range of presentation skills and techniques
• Evidence of a range of ICT skills
• Ongoing evaluation of the Major Project and its relationship to the statement of intent, research and planning. eg weekly/ fortnightly/or term evaluations.
Statement of Intent:
This is where you detail the intent of your project (More or less a design brief). What it is you intend to build and what has inspired you to manufacture it or elements of it? List a 'criteria for success', say what it will have to do if it is to achieve your expectations/ needs.
You can have a few headings of different kinds of research here, such as:
Research into Existing Designs.
Research Materials.
Research Tools and Machinery available to you.
Research Environmental Impacts.
Research Sustainability.
Research Joinery Techniques.
Research into individual elements/ themes/ concepts you like.
Sketching and Idea Generation:
Here is where you incorporate the sketches you have done of different design ideas and concepts, that build up to your final design.
note - try and make them different from each other to show that you have explored a range of options (other then just what colour it is going to be for example).
Prototyping, Modeling and Testing:
This is where you show the evidence of the testing you have carried out before beginning production or throughout production.
They don't have to be full scale prototypes or even of the whole project, you may wish to just build a 1:3 scale model of a certain joint to see if it works in that situation.
Document any jigs and test/ tries you had here it shows your testing.
Production and Working Drawings:
Now days these should be done in one of the CAD programs. If you do it also helps tick off other elements you have to include in your Folio (Evidence of a range of ICT skills, and a range of presentation skills and techniques), is ticking many boxes at the same time, making it easier for you in the long run.
Production / working drawings should be included in several different views; Isometric, General Assembly, Exploded View (with a parts list). They should also include all measurements and what scale they are drawn to.
Justification of Materials, Processes and Resources:
When Stating what materials, processes and resources you have decided to use, you must justify why you have chosen them. What makes them more appropriate then others? (some people like to use a table here to show a comparison of different types of timber for example, and then go on to further justify their selection)
I would suggest doing these individually under three different headings, one for each, so that the marker can clearly see you have addressed all of them.
Justification of resources is where you can also include if you've had any part of your project outsourced due to the school not possessing the necessary equipment or specialty skills.
Evidence of Project Management:
Evaluate how well you have managed your project in relation to the time management plan you set at the beginning. Discuss reasons for being ahead or behind where you expected to be.
Then make a Construction Journal. I find it is best to do these in a table format, with the Headings, Picture, Date, Process, Evaluation. This way you show the marker how you have done it in the picture, when you've done it, described the process of doing it and evaluated how it went, or if there is anything you would do differently next time.
Hint ~ Take lots and lots of photos of everything you do, it makes this part a thousand times easier. You will never remember everything you've done unless you have photos of it.
Time and Action Plan:
Table form is the easiest way to present this data as well. Outline your projected order for the development and construction of your project in small steps and then estimate when you plan on finishing them/ how much time your allocating to finish each step. Then go back through and add when you actually finished. You must also evaluate with justifications why you were in front or behind in time.
Hint ~ Keep a lesson diary, and quickly at the end of each lesson write the date and briefly what you have done. This makes it much easier to fill in the graph later if you happen to forget for a few weeks. it will also make your Construction Journal a lot easier!
Finance Plan:
Before starting you should estimate the cost of your project and set a budget for it (or vice-verser). This way you will have a project cost you can then evaluate you actual finished costs against. Discuss reasons for coming in under budget (eg, Bunnings had a sale on or you brought in bulk with other class members) or over budget (eg, the timber you wanted wasnt in stock so they had to freight it in at an extra cost to you). Remember to keep all receipts, from materials and services (if you've had a part outsourced).
Evidence of WH&S Compliance:
Here, document (with the use of photos normally) where you have used PPE'S (Personal Protective Equipment) when using a tool, machine or technique to comply with the safety protocols set by WH&S. Also state when you have used a WH&S technique (such as walking, pointing sharp tools down when carrying etc). State why WH&S is important within Industry and schools today.
Ongoing Evaluation:
This should be done of the Major Project in regards to the Statement of Intent, Research and Planning. Plus outline any other issues (positive or negative) you have experienced during production.
The evaluation column in the Construction Journal is a good way of continuously evaluation, however you should do a thorough evaluation every few weeks or at least at the end of each term.

Hint ~ another good reason to keep that lesson journal/ diary, just in case you forget to evaluate what you've done for awhile and then forget what it was you had done...
Evidence of a Range of Presentation Skills/ Techniques
& Evidence of a Range of ICT Skills
These should be evident throughout your portfolio, with the incorporation of Graphs, Charts, CAD Drawings, Sketches, Time Lines etc.
However this is another great opportunity to incorporate the 6min of video you are aloud to display with audio...
- you could explain and show how you made one part of it that is fairly unique to your project.
- or you could create a photo montage of the construction process. Just a few ideas.
Evaluating and Justifying is the key, if you do this well then it will significantly help your marks!
Good Luck and Hope this Helps

The creation of an inspiration board is a great way to show existing designs and the influences they have had on your design development. GlogsterEDU.com is a great program to do this with! An example is provided in this folder.
If the same as 2013
