Team Vision for Subsystem Level Build & Test Phase
GoalThe goal for this phase was to complete the construction of the solar thermal mobile stand, and begin testing the subsystems.
ResultConstruction on the mobile stand was started, but not finished due to unforeseen missing components. The base, wheels, and solar collector panel were constructed.
New IssueIt became apparent that not all components that were ordered and billed for were shipped from the supplier. These missing components were necessary for stand assembly and mounting per the supplied assembly instructions.
Parts in question are: bolts, mounting brackets, and 3/4 in. male couplers.
We are working with the supplier to ship us the missing components necessary to finish construction of the mobile stand.
If the supplier cannot fulfill are request, we will purchase or fabricate the necessary components from a different supplier.
Test Results SummaryNo further testing has been conducted since last review
Test Plan Summary
BudgetAs of 2/20/2017: $849.39 has been spent.
