Prototyping and Feasibility

Revolving Door

Re-tested the revolving door removal system under greater stress to simulate more realistic frass removal:
Pouring soil and water into the prototype to test its effectiveness

Conclusions

Cost Implications

Engineering Analysis

Last phase, we identified the engineering requirements that each subsystem impacted. This phase we determined if these impacts were positive (green), negative (red), neutral (white), or unknown (yellow). We then used the results of this analysis to prioritize improvement efforts and mitigate scope creep.

The excel file for the engineering analysis can be found using the following link: Engineering Requirements (By Subsystem).

Test Plans

Applicable standards were added to the test plans:

Risk Assessment

New risks are added when identified. Each risk's importance is rescored at the end of each phase when circumstances change their likelihood or severity. The following risks were identified in the Detailed Design phase:
