P08454: Underwater Equipment Technology

Customer Constraints

Customer requested milestones, progress reports, and expected product

Design, build, and fully characterized working prototypes of 4 idler modules and 3 powered motor modules. See the "Detailed Course Deliverables" section for more specifics.

Customer and Sponsor Involvement

The role of the sponser of the Underwater Technologies project will be to help provide funding, materials, and guidelines concerning the funding, materials, and scope of the project to the team. The role of the customer will be to provide a thorough description of the desired capabilites and parameters the project should have and also to state any issues (dislikes, inadequatecies, shortcomings) the project might contain.

The team will be expected to carry out the vast majority of their interactions with the Team Guide. The sponsor will be available for a series of meetings during the course of the project, and will meet with a group of teams during the beginning of SD1 to lay out common goals, objectives, and philosophies for the sequence of projects. It is anticipated that the sponsor will meet with the team (or multiple related teams) for 2 hour meetings approximately 4 times during SD1, and twice during SD2. The sponsor will participate with team communications electronically and through the web site.

Regulatory Requirements

Project Budget and Special Procurement Processes

The sponsor has allocated $9000 of funding to this project.

The team will be required to keep track of all expenses incurred with their project.

Purchases for this track will be run through the faculty guide, faculty consultant, teaching assistant, and project manager of this project.

In order to keep costs down, obtaining material donations from RIT and surrounding organizations will be the team's primary way of meeting the project needs. Purchasing materials will be the secondary option.
