Quality Assurance (QA) is an important step leading up to full system integration. By ensuring correct operation of all sub-systems within their boundaries, this helps limit the challenge of integration challenge to interfaces. QA for a particular subsystem may be performed as the sub-system is constructed, or it may be performed afterward. Therefore in some cases, it may be that the assembly instructions are integrated with QA.

Successful completion of the Lafayette Formula Electric Vehicle hinges on the intergation of several key components: the energy storage system, the powertrain, and the vehicle chassis. The cost to acquire the powertrain components (motor, motor controller, motor test stand, test power supply) is beyond the scope of any single ECE Senior Design Project, and must be expressly approved by the Engineering Department in order for any of these components to be acquired.
