- what has worked? what hasn’t?
- what questions need to be resolved?
- what will happen when?
- what have you learned?
Tasks that have been completed
To this point I have completed the following tasks:
- Moulded the cover
- Designed the circuit board
- Designed the windbox
- Constructed the combustion chamber
What has worked, what hasn’t ?
So far, ensuring that I do my best to make each weekly assignment a task that works toward my final project has worked very very well.
What has not worked so well has been designing my final circuit board all in one go. it would have been better do create development boards as I went using the chips I intended to use in the end.
What questions need to be resolved ?
At this point the largest question is whether I will have sufficient time to make adjustments or second versions of the prototype should the first version fail too spectacularly
What will happen when ?
Below is a table that indicates the plan for the remaining week.
|Thursday||Finish soldering and programming my board and document|
|Friday||Prepare for final integration and testing of TEGs and document|
|Saturday||Complete the first prototype and test in lab environment and document|
|Sunday||Test the first prototype in real environment and finalize draft video|
|Monday||Finalize the video and make adjustments/ new spirals|
|Tuesday||Finalize documentation and prepare for presentation|
|Wednesday||Present your final project|
What have you learned ?
I have learned an incredible amount of skills beyond just the hard skills of each week but also skills in time management and documenting as I go. This has been revolutionary for me.
