Planning & Execution

Table of Contents

Your website should document your journey through MSD, so include work-in-progress as well as latest results. Use pdf's for display whenever possible so that information is easily viewable without the need to download files and open applications. (Your EDGE file repository should still contain original editable files).

Content related to this node should go in the Project Management directory. Several templates have been posted there for your reference.

All template text and instructions must be removed prior to the Week 3 Problem Definition Review

Intellectual Property Considerations

Is your team considering filing for a provisional or non-provisional patent? Does your project's financial support carry any IP requirements? Are there select elements of your project that your customer has required that you keep confidential?

There is an excellent set of short videos for reference at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLmNrnoyQ30KvvBuMJXaPjdFjq-Jm6ghqE
