Reverse Engineering is the process of discovering the technological principles behind the working of a device, object or system through analysis of its structure, function and operation. This technique is often adopted by organizations while conducting Market Analysis for a new or existing product. It is also used for studying the technology used by competitors and Market Leaders of that Industry.
In this competition the participant has to prove his fundamental understanding skills as an engineer. It requires them to have a systematic approach to thinking about the engineering design of devices and systems.
• The first round will consist of a written test of one hour duration.
• A team may consist of a maximum of 6 members. Students from different educational institutions may form a team.
• The teams filtered out from the first round will move to the second round where they will be given an electronic, electrical or a mechanical device which they are required to disassemble to the smallest components and then re-assemble it after noting down the specifications of each component and making the electrical circuit diagram (if possible) or drawing the major structural components with proper dimensions (on a suitable scale).
• The organisers will reject incomplete, inconsistent or improper tasks and documents.
• All entrants are regarded as having the full understanding of the rules and regulations governing the competition.
•. Certificate of excellence will be given to all the winners.
• Certificate of participation will be given to all the teams that take part in the competition. The team which gets disqualified on grounds of disobeying the rules and regulations would not be considered for the certificate.
• The decision of the jury shall be final and binding.
• The basic judging principle is – the more the no. Of components identified along with proper specifications, the more the marks the team is awarded.
• Aesthetics and neatness of the disassembly and assembly will earn more marks.
• For electrical and electronic devices, a proper electrical circuit diagram is required. For mechanical devices, proper diagram of the basic components with dimensions would stand in a good stead to earn more marks.
• A maximum of 4 hours will be allotted after which marks will be deducted on the basis of - 10 marks per extra 30 minutes.
• Suggestions on the improvement of the device and innovation (if any) will be appreciated although this is not for evaluative purposes.
• Your innovation and understanding of the task at hand will earn you more marks.
If the Participant is given a simple Nokia Phone (not necessarily in working condition), he has to disassemble it, identify the plastic components, their design and dimensions (preferably in an Engineering Design Software); the electronic components, the circuitry involved and specifications; any other components used, their requirement and details.
The idea is by the end he should know that phone to its most fundamental unit. Thus, if required he can now develop a new device with similar or improved features and functionality.
