17S1_Project 8 - Automatic Water Valve

The students proposed a system to water plants from a household tank. The design was an assembly of off the shelf components. There is little innovation in this product given the existing alternatives of such devices in the market place. This is also a typical example which show how students may get a very low score for feasibility as it would be challenging to prove and demonstrate that the device will work when the components are analysed collectively. According to the report, the components will be connected to each other easily and this alone would not be enough to demonstrate manufacturability. There is little potential to extend this product for commercialisation.
