Methodology adopted while working out the project:

Project Planning, Execution, & Control for a Mechatronic System

  • Establish project objectives
  •  Show linkage between project, technical, and business objectives
  •  Develop a work plan, schedule, and budget
  •  Implement a work plan through teamwork and shared responsibility
  •  Demonstrate knowledge of each of the four areas of mechatronics
  •  Integrate the four areas of mechatronics to design a system
  •  Use oral, written and computer communication skills to communicate and document plans,actions, and results
  •  Design, construct, program, calibrate, configure, test, startup, operate, troubleshoot, and repair a mechatronic system
  •  Create documentation for a mechatronic system including maintenance procedures
  •  Complete a project audit to determine best practices and areas for improvement
