Team Captain

We at AAU Racing are a team of students from Aalborg University that compete in the Formula Student, a worldwide engineering competition. At the competition, our engineering design, business plan, cost analysis and racing performance gets evaluated. Our aim as a team, is to produce fast, reliable cars and to continuously improve.

With few exceptions, all parts of the car are designed by team members, while manufacturing is split between the team and several sponsors. Thereby, we follow the parts all the way from the initial design phase to testing in the car. All of this is done in our spare time, to expand our knowledge and to get some fantastic experiences. This also includes the challenges managing a complex project by combining several different areas of expertise. Due to this, we hope to not only become a great racing team, but also to provide our members a wider knowledge base and valuable experience by the time we complete our education.

Igennem december har AAU racing valgt at lægge vægt på, at blive bedre inden for de statiske events til formula student konkurrencerne. De statiske events inkluderer; business plan presentation, cost and manufacturing event og engineering design event. Hvor vi i dag har haft en workshop med fokus på cost and manufacturing event. Når vi som ingeniører designer og konstruerer en racerbil skal der gøres mange tanker, før dele til bilen skal laves. Dette inkluderer ikke kun at designe bilen til at kunne køre, men kunne redegøre for prisen på den endelige racerbil.

Til cost and manufacturing event skal vi kunne forklare produktionspriserne for hver del på bilen, hvilket inkluderer prisen på råmaterialerne og timepriser for processerne der skal til for at gå fra råmateriale til et endeligt produkt. Desuden skal vi kunne forklare hvorfor vi har valgt at lave de forskellige dele, i stedet for at købe dem og om vi kunne have gjort det billigere.

Tak til Hosta Industries A/S for feedback og hjælp til udregning af produktionsomkostninger.

Through December AAU racing have chosen to focus on improving our performance within the static events at Formula Student competitions. The static events includes; business plan presentation, cost and manufacturing event and engineering design event. Today we held a workshop with focus on the cost and manufacturing event. When we as engineers design and constructs a racecar, not only do we need to make the racecar driveable, but we also need to think about the costs associated with the production.

At the cost and manufacturing event we are to explain production prices for each part of the racecar. This includes the price of the raw materials and the price of the different processes that is needed to go from raw material to final product. Another aspect we need to explain is trade off decisions between content and cost, make or buy decisions and if any part could be made cheaper.

Hosta Industries A/S has been very helpful with feedback and help regarding production prices.

I dag var der fuld gang i værkstedet. Bilen blev skilt ad, så chassis kan blive lakeret. Dette var samtidig en oplagt mulighed for nye medlemmer at få forståelse for bilens opbygning - så det bliver spændende at se, om de også kan samle bilen igen 🛠

———————————————————

Today the car was disassembled to prepare it for a visit to paint shop. This was an obvious opportunity for the new members to get their hands dirty and get a better understanding of the car - hopefully they are good at reassembling too 🛠
