Abstract :

New products drive business. To remain competitive, industry is continually searching for new methods to evolve their products. To address this need, we use reverse engineering methodology. We start by formulating the customer needs, followed by reverse engineering, creating a functional model through teardowns. The functional model leads to specifications that match the customer needs. Depending upon required redesign scope, new features are possibly conceived, or not. Next, models of the specifications are developed and optimized. The new product form is then built and further optimized using designed experiments. In this research paper, we apply reverse engineering process on spur gear by doing computer aided modeling, design and analysis.
