Status Review

Current state of the project

All items on our list were given a green light status. Our design was fully developed, we identified suppliers for all of our components and had timelines in place to purchase them. Long lead time parts have been identified and plans are in place to purchase these items before winter break so that they are ready for us when we get back from break.

Comparing current project plan/schedule to original plan/schedule.

A meeting was held with Dr. D, in which she explained that there are 4 probable outcomes for a project:

1. Successful project without reducing scope.

2. Unsuccessful project without reducing scope.

3. Successful project with reduced scope

4. Unsuccessful project with reducing scope.

From this conversation, we decided upon a schedule where we focus on various components of the project. We will start with trying to get one axis working well. Then we will move to focusing on the second axis. Then finally we can put together the entire printer. This allows us to have the focus of a reduced scope in stages without reducing our the overall scope of the project. The schedule for MSD II was created using this concept.
