Table of Contents
Intellectual Property ConsiderationsThere are no intellectual property considerations for this project. This project is intended to be open source for use by students and science enthusiasts.
|Joseph Amoia||Project Manager||Interfaces with customer, guide, and team to plan meetings, discuss questions, review agendas, and ensure the project is following schedule.|
|Brian Coren||Mechanical Engineering Lead||In charge of designing the apparatus to house the strain gauges, microprocessor, and power source.|
|Elbert Heacock||Lead Process Engineer||Keeps material selection in mind while design is going on, critiques prints and part files so that designers know what is manufacturable and what isn’t, and primary manufacturer come build season.|
|Muhammad Ibraheem||Electrical Engineering Lead||In charge of programming microprocessor for data acquisition of strain gauges and wireless transmission.|
|Zac Rubeor||Team Leader||Keeps track of day-to-day deliverables and ensures that team meetings are kept timely and efficient.|

Project Plans & SchedulesThis work breakdown structure (WBS) helps the team keep track of important deliverables and tasks to be completed. A small sample of the WBS is shown below:
Risk Assessment and Growth CurvesWe have compiled a list of preliminary risks to consider as we enter the Systems Design phase. This list will be added upon as the project progresses.
The top ten risks are displayed below:
For the full list of risks, click here.
- Poor work/time management leading to a single team member getting overloaded.
- Failure of device during use due to the high rotation speeds.
- Poor tolerancing/dimensioning leading to an inability to assemble final product.
- Good team and project management will be necessary for success.
- Design dimensions will be verified multiple times before prototyping.
- The device will be thoroughly tested for high RPMs to ensure integrity.
