Staffing Requirements

The staffing requirements for the project are summarized in the table below.

Staffing
Name Discipline Role / Skills
Wayne Walter ME Faculty Guide, Will work closely with the team on an on-going basis to facilitate success.
George Slack EE Faculty Consultant, Will provide EE discipline technical support on an intermittent basis.
Erin Gillespie ME Teaching Assistant
TBD Student EE This student should have a working knowledge of DC electric machines and theoretical modeling. A downfall of the previous desing was the lack of sub-system integration. As a result he/she will also be in charge of electrical subsystem integration. This involves making sure that all subsystems will communicate and operate together.
TBD Student EE/CE This student should be capable of Computer Programming,(C, C++, PHP, Labview, or some other type of computer software programming). He/she will be in charge of the software user interface development and I/O into the software.
TBD Student EE This student will be in charge of analog and digital design. Their main focus will be the PCB layout and sensor selection. One main forcus of this persons job will be to make sure that none of the elecrical components will be damaged during operation.
TBD Student ME This student will be in charge of the mechanical design (i.e structural features, aplication of mechanical load to motor, mounting of other components,etc.) and mechanical subsystem integration. This will involve using Pro-E, Solid Works, or some other tyoe of CAD package to create 3D models and a print package for the team. He/she should have a good knowledge of how to do GD&T.
TBD Student ME This student will support the mechanical design. He/she will be in charge of doing the structural analysis and verification of the design. This will require being capable of doing analysis taught in DME and also doing finite element analysis. He/she will also assist in the manufacturing of the components.
TBD Student ME This student will support the mechanical design. He/she will also provide some transmission theory, power train analysis, and knowledge of engineering vibrations to assist in the design.This student will work on providing a design of experiments for validation. He/she will also assist in the manufacturing of the components.

NOTE- Safety is very critical for this project and takes precedence over all other requirements. Making sure that all components are within safety regulations is a requirement shared by all members of the team.
