Walking Robot Test Case- Atlas

This test case is based on the Walking Robot Template structure, weight distributions, and manufacturing complexities. All hardware objects are scaled to the weight of the Atlas. No changes are made to the software objects of the template. This example uses production schedule dates and quantities of the Atlas program. No attempt has been made to differentiate among the various models of the Atlas robot nor has any attempt been made to simulate the mutilple production lots of the program. Therefore, this example should be viewed as an illustration of how the walking robot template can be used to produce a rough cost estimate of a known robotics program.
