Systems Team Home Page

The Systems Team was created to ensure communication and group cohesion amongst the three fixture teams; Guide Roller, Wire Movement, and Work Piece Movement. By documenting analyses, assumptions, and decisions, the team can provide a live hand-off and knowledge transfer to future generation teams. The systems team is composed of three Industrial and Systems Engineers (ISE), three Mechanical Engineers (ME) and three Electrical Engineers (EE). To ensure system integration, the overall systems team was sub-divided into three teams, in which each is responsible for analysis of a specific aspect of the system. These teams will focus on System Architecture, Basic System Behavior and System Performance.

System Architecture

Goal: The systems team focused on the Systems Architecture will be creating a 3D model of the entire system, including the fixtures that will be designed during this MSD cycle, as well as place holders for the remaining system components. In addition, this model will display the system inputs and outputs as well as provide a tentative footprint of the future overall system.

Some of the benefits of completing the system architecture will be:

Basic System Behavior

Goal: The Basic System Behavior Team will identify and define machine operation parameters and guidelines. This team will create detailed timing diagrams and identify what machine components should be doing and for how long in order to meet the operating parameters and guidelines. The documentation and understanding of the basic machine operation is the key goal for this team.

Some of the benefits of completing the basic system behavior are:

System Performance, Risks and Problem List

Goal: The System Performance Team will continually compare the system metrics for the DS264 versus the proposed design. With these known/decided metrics we can determine which metrics have not been determined and how our decisions will affect those metrics. This team will also create a total BOM with associated costs and lead times. As more detail is determine the BOM, cost and accurate lead times will be determined. Each team has individual risks associated with their fixture design. How can we mitigate the total risk at the system level? Additionally, our team will ensure and determine the test-ability of the design for future teams.

Some of the benefits of completing the system performance will be:
