Develop an instrument case study for a new product that your company wants to commercialise. (Sensors)

The report is divided into two parts:

The first part of your report should be no longer than 10 pages (excluding front page, indices, references and appendixes)

Further details about the 2nd part of coursework will be given later (read the notes at the end).


1. Background

You have recently been appointed as an Instrumentation Engineer in a small to medium sized instrumentation company. You report directly to the technical director (TD).The company works as an Engineering technology solution provider with expertise in physical measurements. They supply solutions for temperature, strain and pressure measurements for different kinds of industries. they have been using the same type of technology, relying mainly on conventional sensors. Recently they had queries from a number of clients about optical sensors for distributed measurements.

2. Meeting with the technical director (the task)

the possibility of developing a new range of products based on fibre optic sensing technologies is raised after the company board meeting. Technical director(TD) asks you for a study into the feasibility of including such products as part of the company’s portfolio.

The TD informs you that an initial report is required for the next board meeting. This initial report will assist the board in deciding on future plans and it should contain a brief and general review of different types of conventional pressure, strain and temperature sensors. It should then focus on a more detailed review of existing commercial fibre optic sensors and the markets they are currently being applied.

3. Report Requirement

In the first part of this assignment you will be preparing a decision making report that will be used to brief company board members, and it is important to you are concise and clear with your message without providing too much technical details. Use of plain English is encouraged.

1. A cover page containing a title (invented one that is relevant to the subject matter).

2. A brief review of the physical principles of operation of conventional temperature, strain and pressure sensors. This should be explained in your own words, using a clear and concise language, suitable to be taken by a person that is not an expert in the subject.

3. A focused and detailed review of currently marketed fibre optic sensing devices (direct competitors) for measurement of temperature, strain and pressure.

4. A review of the possible markets for the new fibre optic sensors stating the advantages and disadvantages of the new product in comparison to the conventional ones.

5. A review of the competitive landscape in the field, and the major commercial players your new product will compete with (including pricing and market location).

6. The report should have a clear and easy-to-follow structure, so that the company TD can quickly and easily find all the necessary information before the Board Meeting. Do not forget to add a table of contents and page numbers, and make sure that the section headings are helpful in navigating the document.

7. A comprehensive range of references (books/ papers/data sheets) from reputable sources. Consistent and accurate referencing format (IEEE).


1. Care should be taken with referencing materials, illustrations and data – all sources must be documented, in the interest of quality and traceability, and to avoid plagiarism. direct collusion or duplication of text or figures is academic misconduct and all participants will be penalised.

2.In the second part of the coursework, following on the success of convincing the board members in investing in a new product line you will be asked to prepare more slightly technical detailed report outlining a full development plan for a type of sensor and instrumentation unit.Details will be given after submitting the first part.
