Engineering Design Cambridge Nationals
R105, This unit provides the opportunity for learners to develop their understanding of the requirements of design briefs and design specifications for the development of new products. Through research and practical activities, learners will understand how consumer requirements and market opportunities inform design briefs
R106, This unit will enable learners to perform effective product analysis. They will research existing solutions and assess the development of engineered products. Learners will develop dexterous skills and gain practical experience of product assembly and disassembly to appreciate manufacturing processes, design features and materials used
R107, This unit develops techniques in generation, concept development and the communication of design ideas using hand rendering and computer-based presentation techniques including computer aided design software
R108, This unit requires learners to apply practical skills to produce a prototype product or model using craft-based modelling materials alongside computer-controlled or rapid-prototyping processes. Learners will produce at least one prototype product in the form of a model and test design ideas in a practical context, to inform further development utilising more complex production processes
