Product Description/Project Objective Statement
- Primary Mission Statement
The mission of project P10023 is to develop a training simulator for surgeons to use for implantation of an LVAD (Left Ventricular Assist Device). The simulator is to have the look of an average human torso, with as many realistic anatomical details possible (i.e. beating heart, moving diaphragm, ribs, etc.). This is to be accomplished by the end of winter quarter (092).
Key Business Goals/Project Deliverables
- Our business goals, summed by our mission statement,
are to have a Generation I 1:1 replica of a human torso
that simulates the human body and functions during
surgery for training of surgeons.
- We will have deliverables at weeks 3, 5, and 11 of MSD I based on the schedule handed out at the beginning of the quarter.
Primary Market/Project Opportunities
- Our primary market and project opportunities consists of surgeons at Strong Memorial that need training to perform the necessary surgery for implantation of a VAD.
Secondary Market/Project Opportunities
- Our secondary market includes the VAD developers such as Thoratec.
Assumptions and Constraints
- As of right now, P10023 is assuming that the list of
goals and needs listed in the PRP is complete due to lack
of face time with our listed customers.
- We are constrained because of the lack of face time as well. We are also constrained by the 22 week schedule for MSD (Can we do everything needed in this time?).
- Our stakeholders can be summed up by our secondary market as well as the researchers here at RIT, including Dr Day.
