Integrated System Build & Test
Table of Contents
- Cad models of the three products can be seen below. More engineering drawings will be coming in the next week and will be added to the page.
- The Transitional Work Station will feature a felt underside for displaying work and a molded plastic backing to create the rigidness. Hinges may be added for adjust-ability.
- The floor panel will feature the same felt and plastic design. It is 2 feet in length.
- The wall panel is half the size of the floor panel when finished, 1 foot. The raised center will be accomplished by cutting the felt in the pattern seen above then scoring it along the lines in the model. When the two open ends are pulled together the shape is formed. Plastic hooks will be used connect them on the wall.
Sorting and Updated Production Numbers
- A second trip to goodwill was needed to find the weight ratio of fabric type that goodwill scraps. The test plan was updated to standardize the test for the trip as seen below.
- The updated test plan can be found here.
- The highlighted numbers feature the weight ratio of each fabric and the weight per item of each type. Three rounds were of sorting were done on this trip. The first round was neglected because the scale used was not accurate enough and the test plan was not followed correctly.
- The new material ratio numbers were used to update the production number spreadsheet from last phase. The number of Transitional Work Stations able to built only dropped slightly.
- The sorting and production spreadsheet can be found here.
- As the final dimensions of the products will be tweaked barring testing by industrial design, the BOM is still being updated.
- The BOM spreadsheet can be found here.
- The steps of production for the transitional work station can be seen above.
- The wall divider and floor panels can be seen above and below.
- The previous team for goodwill, P16702, was tasked with creating a costing tool that the organization could use to analyze the feasibility of products like the ones we are designing.
- Our goal is to populated this spreadsheet with the data that would correlate closely to producing our products.
- More infromation gathering is needed to completely fill out the costing tool but ground has been made.
- Seen above is one of the many sheets of the costing tool. The previous group has been contacted to help analyze and interpret their work.
- The complete costing tool can be seen here.
- Our updated risks can be found here.
Team Vision for Next Phase
- The pdf of team vision for next phase can be found here.
- For the next phase we will continue to finalize our deliverable, update our BOM, and finish our finalized prototypes.
- The team will be attending the CREATE Symposium in Albany on April 26th to display our finding.s
- Our complete plan can be found here.
