Customer Constraints

This section outlines the basic interaction expectations between the design team the Customer/Sponsor, along with the high level organizational expectations for the team.

Customer and Sponsor Involvement

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 senior design 1, and twice during senior design 2. The sponsor will participate with team communications electronically, through the web site as well.

Due to the experimental nature of this project, the main output of the team itself will be a device which will be used by the Print Research and Imaging Systems Modeling Lab personnel to gather data. This data in turn is what will be of use to our sponsor Hewlett-Packard. With this in mind, the design will adhere to the requirements of the PRISM Lab while being capable of what is needed by HP.

Regulatory Requirements


Project Budget and Special Procurement Processes

The sponsor has allocated an initial $5,000 to this project.

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

Purchases for this track will be run through Marilyn Houck
