Microsoft Project

You must create a project schedule to manage your time in Microsoft Project. You can learn Microsoft Project by doing the MS Project Skill Builder. This schedule must include all tasks related to the project from the start of the project to Submission. Click here to access the guide on how to transfer a file. The Microsoft Project schedule should include the following:

  • Minimum of 20 tasks, excluding Milestones
  • Milestones should be clearly indicated on the project plan (duration of zero days)
  • Each task must include the person responsible for completing the task (resource names)
  • Use the "Copy Picture" function to include the project plan in the presentations. Do not take a screenshot
  • Gantt chart must be displayed alongside the tasks list (fit onto one slide)
  • Gantt chart must clearly show a progress line
  • Clearly state during the presentation whether the project is on-time, behind schedule, or ahead of schedule

For help planning the project, review the manual page Planning Project Scheduling & Costs.

As you work on your project, you will be required to present periodic reports on your progress. We call these Milestones. All of the items assigned in each phase of the project are called Benchmark deliverables. These deliverables often consist of a combination of written submissions, presentations, and demonstrations. Benchmark assessments evaluate the progress of your project.

Preliminary Design Investigation

The Preliminary Design Investigation (PDI) is extremely important, as it lays the groundwork for your project. You will be outlining your project idea, inspiration, and goals.

The PDI must include:

  • Cover Page
  • Project Overview
  • Goals & Objectives
  • Design & Approach
  • Cost Estimate
  • Project Schedule
  • Relevant Pictures

An example PDI template can be found here. The PDI is due by Benchmark A. Do not forget to include the items listed above. Use this link to access the VEX PDI Rubric.

Milestone 1

See How To Give a Milestone Presentation for the format of a Milestone presentation.

Final Presentation

The Final Presentation will be a technical briefing, similar to the Milestones, but also serves as a sales presentation explaining why your company should be selected instead of the competition. Please include the following:

  • Problem statement
  • Solution overview
  • Company description and qualifications
  • Drawings
  • Cost estimate
  • Microsoft Project schedule
  • 3D-Printed Model
  • Why should the company be awarded this contract?

Submission

All SLDPs must be submitted online. Please visit this page for the link to the Project Submission form and each SLDP group's individualized login information. To submit, you must login to the EG1004 website using this special login information. Submitting with your NYU account or any other account will generate an error.

Please note the deliverables for this project are as follows. If any of the following items are missing, you will be penalized. Give yourselves plenty of time to upload all necessary files, especially the large ones which take longer. Be sure to click submit at the bottom of the form. The following list includes deliverable items that are expected from your group:

  • Submission deliverables:
    • Final presentation
    • Cover page and table of contents
    • Initial sketch
    • All the drawings of your design (initial through final)
    • Model
    • Walk-through video
    • Final MS Project Schedule
    • Final cost estimate
    • Chart with power, air conditioning, and heat tabulations
    • Resume(s) (No fictitious resumes will be accepted.)

Early Submission

If you submit your project one academic week early (before the end of your lab period the week before the Final Submission Deadline), you are eligible for a bonus that will be added to your final semester-long project grade. You must submit all deliverables one academic week before the submission deadline (see syllabus for exact date). The deliverables received early are the ones you will use in your presentation. No adjustments to the submitted deliverables will be accepted.

Late Submission

Late Submission is not allowed. If you do not Commission or Partial Commission by the deadline set forth in the syllabus, you will not be allowed to submit and will receive a zero for the project grade. In order to receive Partial Commissioning, two TAs must evaluate the project and determine its degree of completion according to the Commissioning requirements and you will be given a grade accordingly. Please refer to the EG1004 Grading Policy for more information.
