Team Vision for Build & Test Prep Phase

The main goal of this phase was to transition from MSD 1 into MSD 2, get all of our preparations for MSD 2 complete, and start on the prototype. Therefore, the phase started out with a debrief from the summer on all progress made. The major event that occurred over the summer was that we lost one of our team members, Xavier. Within the first week we then had two major events; Suleman was added to the team, and the team also secured the needed budget increase. Preparations for build and test included the following action items; updated “risk assessment” and creation of “problem tracking”, revision and completion of test plans, group and individual planning for build and test, and getting a head start on some of the prototyping. Documentation of the team’s work on these tasks can be seen below. Overall the team feels confident upon completion of this phase, and fully prepared to start building and testing the prototype and completing the remaining phases of MSD2.
