Intellectual Property Considerations

Our team is not considering filing for any sort of patents. Our project's financial support does not have any IP requirements. Our customer asked us to not tell the current manufacturers of cotton insulation what Goodwill and ABVI's plan is to make a competing product.

Team Setup

After several meetings and learning what each of us like, our team has come to the consensus that Mitch Goepel will be the Team Leader/Project Manager. Denning Crenshaw will be the Communications Director, Lucas Jackling will be the the Documentation Supervisor and Samantha Kon will be the Technical Advisor. Regarding EDGE, each team member will contribute to the edge where they see fit. Purchasing will be done by the Project Manager but can be carried out by any team member as long as the whole team agrees on what is being purchased.

Here are some other resource requirements for our team:

Communication

Denning, as the Communication Director, will communicate with the customer mainly through email every three weeks at minimum. Our customer will meet with us either over the phone in a conference call, or in person either at RIT or at ABVI. For all emails regarding the project each member of the team and the guide will be CC'd on emails. The expectation is for the pre-read/presentation documents will be sent to Joe Kells a day before the design review. Expectations for team communication would be through the GroupMe app as well as email. Team members should communicate with the team if they are running late or are having problems.
