Glenn Taylor Technology Folder My Name is Glenn Taylor and for 60% of my overall Technology GCSE final mark I have to identify a problem and design a solution. The solution will be designed and built by me. This will include researching, using different techniques of manufacturing and generating ideas. Problem 1 Shed Alarm We have a shed in my garden and it is not protected very well. It contains my computer and various other items of importance and value. Although my family has thought of buying an alarm because of some recent neighbourhood break-ins, they have not found one to satisfaction. Problem analysis * Safety is of the importance so it should be safe to manufacture and safe to use * It should not harm the criminal in any way, only scare them away * It should be easy to use * Overall the main aim for the alarm is to secure the shed Problem 2 Door Bell My father works from home and as the shed acts like his office he cannot hear if people knock on the front door. This causes a problem when it is any member of my family trying to get in or when anybody needs either my father or me. Problem Analysis Problem 2 * It should be safe to manufacture and safe for the user * The bell should do as required and alert whoever is in the shed * It should be user friendly and not look an eyesore on the door. ...read more.
