The project plans should be structured under the headings:
When preparing your plan, please make sure that it fulfills basic quality requirements (e.g., the plan is dated; the course title is provided correctly; team members and the project manager are listed (without student registration numbers); all pages are numbered; references are complete and written consistently). Moreover, the tasks should be explicitly named and listed; and in the section on risks, you should elaborate how likely the different risks are, what consequences they might have, and in what ways do you plan to mitigate them. You may look at examples from previous years under the tab "Deliverables of previous seminars".
The project plans will be presented on 06.03.2020, during the excursion to UPM. Each project team will have 15 minutes for the presentation of its project plan and approximately 10 minutes for discussion.
The written interim reports should be about about 3 written pages long, covering the following topics:
1) Changes in the objectives and the scope of the project, if there have been any.
2) Brief desciption of the project status in relation to the initial project plan (incl. summary of the actions that have been taken).
3) Possible changes to the initial project plan for the remainder of the project.
4) The updated risk management plan.
Ensure that the reports are professional and meet the requisite standards, including the following:
Please also read some of the materials on the webpage for "Literature on scientific writing":
Suggested structure (can be adapted, please benchmark with examples from previous years):
At the very end, the final report should contain an informative two-page self-assessment of the project, addressing topics such as:
The final presentations should have a strong focus on the results of your project, with mention of their likely significance for the client. You may also demonstrate computational models your that you've developed.
Don't spend much time (max 1-2 minutes) on the reflective self-assessment (this is largely a mechanism for the teaching staff to obtain useful feedback). Still, you might wish to state a few words about how successful you think your project has been, and what you might have done otherwise, in hindsight.
