Today I plan on planning to do a plan. Well, I’m actually doing the plan.
This will be the milestones for my development methodology report, where I must talk about multiple project management development methodologies before creating an argument about which one to use in a small game company or personal project.
For the project I plan on doing the development methodology for my Software Development 4 project (Echo of Heroes) which will be done by myself, so this will be taken into consideration. The idea will be to choose a good methodology for this project, which should be based off things like avoiding a lot of unnecessary things like time spent documenting that other people would otherwise be looking at in a large team.
Here’s the milestones:
|4||28 August||–||Find research.|
|5||4 September||–||Intro, template and fill text.|
|6||11 September||–||Waterfall, template, abstract (intro sections).|
|7||18 September||–||Spiral, Scrum, comparison sections.|
|8||25 September||–||TDD, RAD, comparison sections..|
|9||2 October||–||Incremental funding method, Feature driven development, comparison sections.|
|10||9 October||Initial report due||Conclusion, comparison sections, and clean up. Hand in.|
|11||16 October||–||Intro and plan for chosen development methodology.|
|12||23 October||–||1/3rd of case study sections.|
|13||30 October||–||2/3rd of case study sections.|
|14||6 November||–||3/3rd of case study sections.|
|15||13 November||–||Conclusion and abstract. Finalise.|
|16||20 November||Final report due||Proof read and hand in. Buffer.|
As these are based off what looks like a draft of the development methodology assignment outcomes, I can’t say they are the actual assignment due dated. But There’s no hurt having them earlier than usual.
