Build & Test Prep
Table of Contents
Team Vision for Build & Test Prep PhaseOur vision for this phase was to finalize our design, update the CAD, have all of our test plans written, have all remaining materials and parts sourced, and be ready to begin building our subsystems.
We had to make some changes to the design due to feasibility challenges and due to new information about the design of the tremor mitigation device. Those are reflected in the CAD and in the BOM.
Also during this phase, we started the process of requesting a budget increase because the motors needed for this test arm are very expensive and we need a lot of parts.
Test Plan SummaryHere is the link to our working Test Plan document that contains details and procedures for all of our test plans mapped to our Engineering Requirments: Test Plans
Below is an example of one of our Tests and its formatting. In each test tab, there is also a data acquisition section for the recording of test data.

BOMHere is the link to our most current revision of the BOM
We have proposed a budget increase of $250 to accommodate the more costly mechanical and electrical subsystems. Screenshots of the Subsystem BOMS and the Budget Proposal are below:
