A Process takes inputs and transforms them into outputs, and may be connected to other Processes in process flows. The work of Work - Facilitation and coordination contributes to This Process.

A Process happens in an organizational Context.
Context: The Project Rope Maker

Fishing communities all around the world can turn recycled plastic into fishing nets and ropes.

Project requirements

The rope making machine design will represent a method for village-scale rope making of standard polypropylene (PP) rope from waste PP pellets/shreds, 16mm in diameter as long lines (at least 150-200m) and 7mm in diameter as short-lines (5 meter each). The design will represent an easily replicable device, built with stock components and minimal use of custom parts (unless they can be digitally fabricated with a RepRap class 3-D printer or CNC mill –e.g. limit to what is found in most fab labs and avoid high energy processes and a skilled machinist). The designers should seek to minimize cost and complexity while keeping throughput high (continuous if possible). The base design for the extruder -first stage - can use the Pearce group recyclebot designs.

Deliverable

Source code (CAD in native format and STL), full BOM (component, number, cost, and source), build instructions with pictures, operation/maintenance instructions, video of operation and prototype sent to the Project Sponsor.

Other conditions

The Project Sponsor would retain first academic publication rights (with Sensorica co-authors if wanted). At the time of academic paper submission full open source documentation released to the world.

This process fulfills a Work order.
Order: Work order 327 due: 2021-10-31

Time Contribution Work - Community Building 1.00 Time - Hours

Work in the scope of bringing contributors together, put in place and execute rituals, inform, solicit, etc. Usually there is no deliverable for this type of work, but you should make reference to communications on email or discord or posts on social media, if pertinent, when you log.

Time Contribution Work - Information mining 5.00 Time - Hours

Find communities and organizations online that would be interested in participating in this project.
Gathering information, usually on the Internet. Is it important that this information is made available to all contributors, in a useful format, a format that makes it easy to find, view, understand, sort through, etc.
when you log, place a link where the mined info is gathered.
Bet place to store mined information is on Diigo, using a good tagging language and syntax. If you don't have access to Diigo ask Tibi on Discord.
