# project development and conclusions

## index

### assignment goals

• Evaluate project plan
• Apply time management techniques
• Summarise and communicate the essence of a project

### Final Countdown to D-Day

• what is the deadline? How much time do I have left?
• Deadline = 19/01/2017, i have an infinitismal amount of time left ( a week), never seems enough
• The mould for laying the bin is done, motor driver circuit is done and working. temperature sensor board is designed, need to stuff it.

### WorkSchedule till presentation day

• how will I complete the remaining tasks in time?
• I'm trying to outsmart's Neil's theory that any we will be off by our time estimation by a factor of 'pi', by trying to compensate my instinctive estimations by multiplying it by 3.14. So far I have been inaccurate by a factor of 2 . (>.>)

### Status of components

• what has worked?
• Compositing workflow, motor-controller
• what hasn't?
• Compositing workflow-joining 2 hemispheres of the bin (have used glue-gun now), sensor-controller

Frame - is laser-cut 7mm MDF

### Pending concerns

• what questions still need to be resolved?
• My inexperience with coding leaves me a little anxious about not being able to finish an interface for my input-dht22 sensor

### Conclusions, learnings and parting advice to future students

• what have you learned?
• A whole world of possibilities in terms of possible solutions to human problems :)
• the fascinating world of microcontrollers and electrical components ..
• some profound insights on project management, sequencing and time management
• a newfound appreciation for how diverse human ideas can be, thanks to the global network of students

• DO NOT 'FORCE PUSH'
• DO stick to the weekly schedule
• DO follow all the safety procedures
• DO try out unfamiliar programs and workflows
