Preliminary Work Breakdown Structure

The purpose of this node is to illustrate the preliminary work breakdown structure--a non-sequenced version of the work that has to be completed before the project can be considered complete. Note that these are preliminary representations of the work breakdown structure and are subject to change. The tasks listed will not necessarily take place, as the scope of the project may change during the course of the project. The preliminary MSD1 Schedule, by discipline can be found here.

Three Week Project Plan
Person Week 0->1 Tasks Week 1->2 Tasks Week 2->3 Tasks
Team Getting up to speed. Establishing target specifications, meeting with customer to establish overall objectives, goals, and standards. Research into materials and brainstorming begins. Target specs have been established and multiple concepts are in development. Materials have been researched and team is on their way to making a decision on which way to solve the problem.

Project Manager

Prior to week 1, project manager should have set up a meeting with all team members to discuss the project scope, objectives, and give a technical overview. Ideally, the team has met with the customer once already to familiarize them with the project and the people involved. It will be the PM's responsibility to make sure all IP considerations have been dealt with and the budget is set and allocated. All loose ends should be tied up before week 1. Getting other team members up to speed, and making sure they understand the PRP and what the project requires. Bringing the team on a tour of the IT Collaboratory to see the metrology equipment there. Begin initial brainstorming and materials research, developing the schedule further, and leading initial discussions.

Mechanical Engineers

Getting up to speed on the project--doing research into the technology to understand what the project entails and the project constraints. Technical specifications established. Concept generation starts. Materials research and thermal analysis begins so a material can be selected. Materials research completed, material selected. Several concepts have been generated, preliminary structural design begins. Decision on structural design should be made.

Electrical Engineers

Getting up to speed on the project--doing research into the technology to understand what the project entails and the project constraints. System architecture research. LightGage tear-down, electronics and software analysis. Component research begins, and parts received from the IT Collaboratory should be tested for functionality. Preliminary system architecture chosen in conjunction with the rest of the team. Part and components should be researched and selected. Circuit simulation, design begins.
