Intellectual Property Considerations

The Model Railroad Control Panel Project is an open-source design available to any and all model railroad aficionados inside and outside of the RIT Model Railroad community. Due to its ability to be referenced and implemented with external customers such as any person in the Model Railroad community, our project does not have any intellectual property considerations. For more information on the project, please reference our one page Project Summary.

Peer Reviews

Peer Reviews are completed collaboratively in one shared document available to the team in the RIT MSD Team P19345 Google Drive. Once all team members have completed their reviews, it is sent as one document to our guide, Harold Paschal.

Project Plans & Schedules

For MSD I & II, a Microsoft Project WBS and Gantt chart were created to track tasks, duration, team member resources and a visual representation of where we were at in the semester, ie./ on-track, behind schedule, etc. Each MSD phase referenced a schedule snapshot to be followed. Please reference the below example from MSD II's Systems Build and Test Prep phase.
