Project 702 / Project planning

Climate Chip Project Timeline

The proposal has been drafted, along with the required initial plan. Preparing the proposal, and coming up with time estimations has been a very ‘grounding’ process. It has highlighted the magnitude of work to be done, and going through this process has highlighted the need to identify and manage the scope of this project. Below is the proposed timeline.
