Reverse Engineering
General concepts
 Right and left brain thinking 
 Application to product study
YOUR TWO BRAINS
verbalanalyticalcritical
Example
 A uniform beam 3 m long weighs 82 kg/m. It is pinned at one end and supported by a cable at a point 2 m along the beam. What is the tension in the cable?
Left Brain
2.0 m1.5 m
3 x 82 x 9.81Ry Rx 
Right Brain
Why is this beam here?
Why is it so heavy?
Why is it pinned at the left end?
 Do we really need a cable?
Why is it orange?
The most creative decision making and problemsolving come about when both sides of the brain bring their various skills to the table: the left brainanalyzing issues, problems, and barriers; the right brain generating fresh approaches; and the left brain translating them into plans of action.”
Edwards (1979)
. Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain.
 
PRODUCT STUDY
 Reverse Engineering 
EXAMPLE: computer mouse
 –what is it?
input device for computer 
 –what does it do?
translate the motionsof your hand into signals the computer can use
 –how does it work?
let’s have a look...
BACKGROUND
1946 ENIAC -first electronic computer (based on vacuum tubes)1950 IBM invents dot matrix printe1950 Yoshiro Nakamotoinvents disc drive1958 Jack Kirby invents silicon chip
BACKGROUND
1968 Douglas Engelbartinvents themouse as an input device for mainframecomputers (the PC doesn’t exist yet). Hehad been a radar technician in WWII andwas working at Stanford Research Institute. Nothing much happens with it.
BACKGROUND
1971 Intel invents the microprocessor 1975 Edward Roberts invents the personalcomputer 1977 Rank-Xerox invents the laser printe~1979 Bill Gates established Microsoft(MS-DOS operating system; no hardwareyet)
BACKGROUND1983 Apple Computers (SteveJobs) attaches a mouse to theMacintosh.
(Microsoft is by now building PC’s, but has to get to Windows 3.1 before they support the mouse)
MOUSE  PRODUCT STUDY 
 first step -sketch of overall device,noting relevant  features
 
PRODUCT STUDY
 Reverse Engineering 
what is the material? (what type of metal?what type of plastic?)what is the function of the component? (can youtell by looking?)what colour is the component? why? are thereother sensible things about the component (sound, texture, smell, taste)
MOUSE 
-grey-beige hard plasticcasing (type=?)-foot (1.5m) flex cord with molded strain relief -molded plastic connector (RS232 serial connector?)-3 button switches on top-mystery switch on sidelabelled“MS/PC”
PRODUCT STUDY
 Reverse Engineering 
how do the individual components relate toothers? (exploded diagrams work well here)how are the components fastened to eachother? (make notes)what is the shape of the component? why is it this shape?
Explodedview
next step -begin disassembly,and make sketch(es)as you proceed identify what you canand make notes of questions to be answered 
Explodedview
-1 Phillips-head screwto undo, and comes apart -exploded view is part observed, part visualized -arrangecomponents so they project down and across into their actual places in the device
Explodedview
-may use centrelinesto assist in visualizing arrangement of components
-
individual componentsare numbered and identified
