Planning & Execution

Table of Contents

In order to ensure a successful project experience for our team, the first thing we completed was developing team roles, values and norms, and a schedule for the project.

Intellectual Property Considerations

Our team plans to leave our intellectual property in the public domain so that it is available for use by anyone who wishes to use the design for their own use. However, if the SOIL Organization asks to keep the intellectual property, we will assign it to them.

Our team leadership and roles were assigned as follows:

Jake Wexler (Project Manager) - ISEE

Keith Mirsky-Ashby (Associate Lead Engineer) - ME
