Abstract

This report presents a systematic approach to enhance the current design of interlocking brick machine. The design starts with data gathering from the literature review and information given by the interlocking bricks maker. Product specification is then being developed and refine to the specific points. The weaknesses of the current design are being analyzed by looking at the movement waste done by the machine operator and the machine limitation is being identified. The interlocking bricks are different from other normal bricks as it requires no mortar or cement for masonry work. This bricks interlocked with each other by means of positives and negative frogs on the top and bottom of the bricks which disallow the horizontal movement of bricks. Selection of best design is chosen from the several design concepts proposed. Finally, the drawing and detail design is produced according to standard and ready to be built by the machine developer.
