Team Vision for System Level Demo with Customer

During this phase, the initial plan was to have the assembly already complete and finalize all testing. Due to serious delays of upwards of 1 and a half months on part manufacturing, we were only able to finish our base level assembly. There are still a few features that have not been completed, and will be necessary before hand off. Initially feasibility testing has showed us that hand power will not be sufficient for this system.

Test Results Summary

The only testing that was completed was initial testing to see how the system functioned and make any adjustments as we finished the assembly a few hours prior to the review. The majority of our test plans were contingent on the fact that we could shred bottles by hand. We are investigating ways to make shredding by hand possible.
