Team Vision for System Level Demo with Customer

This phase marked the completion of the Automated Keg Washer. By December 9th, the team will have fully assembled and tested the system and prepared themselves to perform the customer hand-off. Beer Tree Brew Co. has volunteered to pick up the product from RIT and transport it to the brewery themselves for installation. The team will perform a thorough customer demo the day of to ensure that all questions are answered before parting ways. If there are any problems after the installation, there will be a point of contact for the customer to use if necessary.
