Integrated System Build & Test with Customer Demo
Table of Contents
Team Vision for System Level Demo with CustomerThis 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.
Test Results Summary
During this phase, the team completed all of the testing necessary to qualify the system as complete and ready to deliver to the customer. The official documentation of these tests can be accessed here.
The major subsystems and systems that were tested include:
- Fluid Flow
- Heating Element
- Electrical Controls and Solenoid Valves
- Complete Structure
After testing the team was able to evaluate the performance of the system against the needs of the customer and engineering requirements of the project. This information can be accessed below:
Risk and Problem TrackingThe team encountered a few of the predicted risks throughout the life of the project. These are outlined in the Risk Management document. In addition to outlining all risks encountered, the document also addresses how the risks were managed.
The major risks encountered in this project include:
- Time Constraint
- Not enough time to complete all deliverables in the time given
- Testing Constraint
- Not enough tools to complete the necessary testing
- Not enough financial assistance to purchase the necessary components
- Incorrect Components
- The components purchased do not function correctly with the system
Similar to the risk management, the team documented all system level problems encountered throughout the build and test phase of the project. These are outlined in the Problem Tracking document. In addition to outlining all problems encountered, the document also addresses how the problems were addressed. A preview of the problem document is seen below.
