Build, Test, and Integrate - "Intro" Review
The following documents were used for our "Intro" review in MSD II:
MSD II Test Plan
- It is important to note that the enclosure will be tested when the wire routing will be implemented and planned out during the allotted Week 4-6 in the schedule.
- Please note that some aspects of this schedule may be grouped together. For example, wire routing and enclosure design/build are all grouped into one although each has not been explicitly called out.
- Please note that this file is currently up-to-date as of: 9-9-15
Additional notes about the "Intro" review:
- Our “manufacturing plan” will be included in our User’s Manual.
- All other files for this project have not had many and/or any significant changes made to them. Any additional files not listed above of this nature can be found on the Detailed Design page.
Test Plans & Test Results
First Subsystems Demo Results
- Motor mount works as required.
- Slotted line successfully and securely attached to base plate.
- MATLAB Code successfully controls uC as expected.
- However, the uC code written does not
successfully move the carriage away from the home
position switch. The only successful motion occurs
when the carriage is moved back to the home position.
The unknown issue that is occurring is currently
- As of 9:57AM on 9/29/2015 this issue has been successfully resolved. The problem was the the motor was set to turn at 240 rpm's but could not maintain this speed for a single step. The rpm's were then reduced by a factor of 4 to 60 rpm. Unfortunately this was too fast as well. Ultimately the ideal speed was found to be 30 rpm.
- However, the uC code written does not successfully move the carriage away from the home position switch. The only successful motion occurs when the carriage is moved back to the home position. The unknown issue that is occurring is currently being troubleshooted.
The only file that needed to be updated for this stage of the review was: Problem Rating & Tracking REV2
