Team Member Departure

When the semester started our project manager, Brenden Hoff, asked to leave the team in order to support a struggling team at the request of Industrial Engineering department. Brenden believed that our current project was in a good position for completion. Brenden's usual tasks have been divided among the other members. He is still available for minor help if needed during the transition.

Parts & Materials Status & BOM

Finalized BOM (1/28/2016)

Current Status of All Orders

Top Link, Trailer Hitch

PWM, Fuses, Light Switch Guard

Battery, Battery Charger and Battery Monitor

-Approval of the batteries was dependent on Dr. DeBartolo's approval for this particular choice. This was rectified as of 1/28/2016.


Tecknic Motor

-The order of the motor was set back due to issues with Teknic not accepting the PO. This was rectified as of 2/2/2016.
