Lessons Learned

 

Lessons Learned

  • Get started on designing and refining the final design as soon as possible after research and the proposed design are completed. There are always set backs with the final design and it is better to confront them earlier than later.

  • Leave time for testing. This is the most important part of the design process. If the design does not perform as design, then the design needs to be redesigned. 

  • Before machining, make sure you have a plan and all the tools that are needed before going into the machine shop. Shop time can be difficult to obtain, so it is best not to waste the time setting up.

  • Machining time can be difficult to obtain, so it is a good idea to get in and finish machining before the big rush of other teams working at the last minute.
