Team Vision for Build & Test Prep Phase


Leaving the detailed design phase, our team still had some aspects of our 3D models and physical and electrical schematics that needed updating and refinement. In this phase we have refined all designs and schematics for the filter housings, UV Batch Treatment Module, and electrical systems. Furthermore we have ordered all necessary components to keep us on track with our predicted 1st iteration build (noted in Gantt Chart). We have also considered the tests required to quantify and qualify the performance of our system in relation to relevant specifications, and we have outlined high level (some with more detail) strategies to implement these tests. We have also read through relevant microbiological standards related to water treatment, and have updated our specifications accordingly.
