USABILITY STUDY:

 

            No usability study was performed for this project as per a verbal agreement between Dr. Skinner and Michael Mihalek in September of 2013.  BTCO’s plot tables are valued at $100k each and the logistics of “strapping” the device to one of those tables was determined to be beyond the scope of the project for this semester.  If (at a future date) BTCO determines the financial risk involved in implementing this design into their plot QA program is worth funding, a study will be conducted on the first unit installed.  This study will enable improvement to the design for the second unit and upgrades to implement on the first unit.
