Build & TestThere are two major goals that can be defined under the build and test umbrella, validating and verifying tests. Verification tests verify that the test module that we constructed was what we have actually designed. While validation will help the team to prove that the designed and built system is capable of completing the tasks desired by the customer.
- Verification- Are we building the product that we designed?
- Validation- Does the product that has been built and designed meet customer needs?
The following link is to an Excel document listing and
describing all of these tests. Tests
The following link is to a pdf of the teams specifications. Specs
Assembly Instructions have been created as a part of the initial build/prototype process.
Any special care or other similar instruction that is necessary for the build/prototyping process is documented as a part of the testing procedures.
Test Plans & Test ResultsTest information can be found at the link above. This document includes all of the testing procedures that are necessary for both verification and validation of our design.
