This week, Team SPORK discussed a concept robot design for the 2016 challenge, FRC Stronghold. This year we decided that we could take on a new approach to the design of the robot, we separated the team into four conceptualization groups in which we will come up with individual and unique concepts. We rated our design’s using a Kepner Tregoe chart. A Kepner Tregoe chart helps score projects based on the importance of specific tasks a design is supposed to accomplish. This new and unique planning process now used by Team SPORK will help in years to come. Future team members can learn from the this year’s process and apply our new techniques and improve it in the years to come. Team SPORK wishes the best of luck for competing teams.
