Team Vision for Preliminary Detailed Design Phase

During this phase the goals of the team were to work on drafting a design for the stringing operation as well as the rope operation. From this we have created a draft BOM that will help us in the creation of a budget, lead time, and vendors. A cost analysis was completed to ensure that the product we are producing is going to at the minimum break even. Finally the team also research ergonomic estimates to ensure that we are not going to cause harm to the users. Also sufficent work was done on creation of test plans for all engineering requirements as well as beginning of prototype testing.
