Project status dan
Project Status - Dan

  • Budget

  • Risk Assessment Update

  • Project Plan

  • Engineering Specs

  • Customer Satisfaction

Risk assessment
Risk Assessment

  • Risk: Patient cannot move naturally while using system

    • Would adulterate reported data

    • Reviewed results with Customer and Advisor

    • Mitigated during design phase by making people’s movements a design concern

  • Risk: Testing phase does not occur under realistic circumstances

    • Enclosures would not survive ‘real’ conditions

    • Exposed enclosures to expected usage

    • Mitigated by testing beyond overloading test conditions upon completion to find approximate factor of safety.

Risk assessment1
Risk Assessment

  • Major Risk: Interfaces do not stay on patient

    • Sensor package reports useless data

  • Solution

    • Careful attention paid to making the system viable for patients with many body types

    • Mitigated by delivering multiple attachment styles

Risk assessment2
Risk Assessment

  • Risk: Lack of communication between P10010 and P10011

    • Incomplete Design

    • Failure to explore possibilities completely

    • Mitigated by ensuring regular between groups and/or bi-weekly meetings

Success evaluation
Success Evaluation

  • Areas of success:

    • Designed functional prototype

    • Tested several attachment techniques

    • Documented all results for future team

  • Areas of lack of success

    • Flex sensor implementation

Alex msd i lessons learned
Alex – MSD I Lessons Learned

  • UniGraphics NX Software

  • Pushed to order materials at end of MSD I

  • Paid more attention to Material Selection

    • Polyethylene was chosen during BOM stage based on price and availability

  • Learned importance of the design process and documents

    • Project plan, selection process,

  • Ask questions during design process

    • Easier to ask questions early then make changes later

  • How to work as a team to complete deliverables

Alex msd ii lessons learned
Alex – MSD II Lessons Learned

  • Plan accordingly to meet deadlines for team

  • Parallel Manufacturing and testing

  • Value of finding the right tools

  • Polyethylene poor machining properties

  • Delrin is a much better choice

  • Communication with P10010

  • Overall, learned how valuable the design process can be

Dan lessons learned
Dan - Lessons Learned

  • Overextended

  • 80% confidence

    • 20% whispering doubt, saying do more testing

  • Communication

    • Give honest critique

    • Speak Up

    • Reinforce Others

  • Limits

  • Organized Planning

Joe msd i lessons learned
Joe – MSD I Lessons Learned
