DFME

The documentation of a Baja ATV is highly focused on this area.


Dierent teams may have their own style of presenting their
DFMEA report. This article deals with an example of how a typical
report is made.
Design:
The idea of making an ATV is not solely for All Terrain use. The
vehicle should be ambitioned to even more parameters.
Aesthetics, Easy operation, Manufacturability, Safety shall be
mentioned as some of the parameters. The dimensional
congurations should t inside the rulebook of BAJA. Having
4/more wheels, not having more than 64 at the widest point,
Maximum length being 108, Safe operation over all terrains,
Ground clearance and accommodating 95th percentile male shall
be listed among them.
