Time: DeadlinesI have noticed a few issues with the pre-production and production deadlines.Firstly, the majority of the deadline dates are close together which doesn’t give usthat much time to meet the deadlines. For instance, unit 29 task 2 is allows me toget it done within 14 days. Secondly, the pre-production deadlines doesn’t supportthe production stages as the deadlines for both units are very close together (e.g.Unit 29 Task 1 Deadline: 21st Sept, Unit 1 Task 1 Deadline: 28th Sept) this doesn’tgive us much time to work on both in great depth. And finally, the deadlines forboth pre-production and production for task 3 are on the same day.
