Team Vision for Detailed Design Phase

During the Detailed Design Phase, it was our team’s primary goal to finalize our design and give ourselves a head start for MSDII. In order to do this, important project management documents first needed to be compiled and finalized. These documents demonstrate our full understanding of the problem at hand, and serve as helpful background information for our entire design process.

Next, to ensure the robustness of our design, we needed to continue feasibility studies on our overall systems. For this phase, we focused on gauge placement location, wiring with different shaft lengths, and metal tank shielding. Each of these studies are integral to our overall design and give us important information for future testing.

Finally, to make sure we are prepared for MSDII, we have developed a comprehensive list of goals for each phase, and organized them in the form of a GANTT chart. This breakdown will help us to stay on track when/if things get hectic, and continuously provides us with goals to work towards.

In order to organize our work and effectively display our system design, we broke up our work into the following sections:
