Integrating motion into structural designs presents unique engineering challenges. At Uni-Systems Engineering, a multidisciplinary team of structural, mechanical, and electrical engineers designs the mechanization system, integrates it into the surrounding structure, and develops a control system that makes it move.

CONCEPT DESIGN

During the concept design phase, Uni-Systems Engineering generates a number of mechanization system concepts. Typical deliverables for this phase of design:

•  Commentary and evaluation of proposed options.

•  Concept sketches of the various options.

•  A brief preliminary concept narrative.

SCHEMATIC DESIGN

During schematic design, Uni-Systems Engineering lays out the general arrangement of system components. Deliverables for this phase of design:

•  General arrangement and geometry drawings.

•  Concept drawings.

•  Framing layouts.

•  Track/guide way layouts.

•  Typical cross sections of the mechanization system's integration with the surrounding structural.

•  A schematic design narrative.

•  A set of preliminary operating parameters.

•  A preliminary hazard analysis and safety plan.

•  A preliminary budget estimate for completing design and construction.

DETAILED DESIGN

During design development, Uni-Systems Engineering further develops the mechanization design concept and completely defines its interfaces with the surrounding structure. Deliverables for this phase of design:

•  General arrangement and geometry drawings.

•  Drive/mechanization drawings with all major components sized and defined.

•  Framing layouts with all members sized and geometry defined.

•  Track/guide way layouts with all members sized and connections to fixed structure defined.

•  Typical cross sections of the mechanization system's integration with the surrounding structure.

•  A design narrative and performance specification.

•  A preliminary work plan/schedule for completion of design /construction.

•  A scope of work definition for completing the design and supply of the mechanization system.

•  A scope responsibility matrix for all other associated work.

•  A formal hazard analysis and safety plan and a stipulated sum proposal for Uni-Systems to complete the

   design and supply.

At the conclusion of this design phase the team has all of the information required to complete their construction documents.

PROTOTYPING AND TESTING

Uni-Systems engineers develop prototype verify the performance and reliability of key mechanization components. Deliverables for this phase of design:

•  Test report including testing criteria and results, along with drawings, photographs, videos, and raw data.
