Team Vision for System-Level Design Phase

The primary goals of this phase were to brainstorm concept designs for the coupling test fixture build, to systematically select a design for prototyping, and finally to review and research material relevant to the coupling test fixture design. All of this was accomplished, along with learning more about the resources available to us in cleaning out any DIS units in our possession, before bringing them to our workstation in the MSD lounge.

Feasibility

Feasibility 1

Will there be enough time to complete testing to come to a reasonable conclusion? Study located here

Feasibility 2

Do all potential replacement couplings mount to the input and output shaft in a similar manner to each other? Study located here

Feasibility 3

What quality of test fixture base can be made, and can one be purchased that's currently on the market? Study located here.

Feasibility 4

Can the coordinate system of the test fixture can be made from off the shelf parts to save cost? Study located here.

Feasibility 5

Does our team have the necessary skills to get to a completed test fixture? Study located here.
