Problem Tracking

In order to help mitigate potential problems that may arise during the build and test phase of this project, the 6-step problem solving technique will be used. This will help us keep track of problems that may come up as we assemble and test our prototype.

Failure Recuperation

Original 5lb latch is too strong for the assembly. Solution: latch is exchanged for 2lb latch.

Thermoelectric plate cracked during installation. Solution: New plate was purchased and installed; Enclosure tolerances were adjusted for better fit.

Enclosure is too big for microscope to properly focus. Solution: Enclosure is redesigned to fit the focus parameters.

Power supply fails. Solution: Considering replacing the power supply or using a battery source.
