  • Pursue other uses of Flex
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
