“…contains a number of detailed, logical steps…”• This means DETAIL – exact tasks, planned precisely “…that describe the use of resources and time.”• This means you must clearly state, in detail, ALL the dates and timings of your plans.• It also means you must in detail list any resources you need for a particular task, in order to complete it.
Ways of ensuring you have done a detailed enough plan1) Create a GANTT chart: – The GANTT chart will show you have made a long term plan, that shows how long you plan on spending on the rest of the stages of the Design Cycle. – You should ensure you have a paragraph of text with the GANTT chart explaining what it is showing and why you have made it.
2) Create a step-by-step plan: - This should describe the exact steps you need to take to create the product. - It should give precise detail. - It should include any resources you need to use for all the steps. - It should include precise timings (dates and times) for all the steps.
“…critically evaluates the plan and justifies any modifications…”• This means you must be critical of your plans – find things that could be improved.• Explain why you changed your plans from your original designs if you did this.• It should show you are reflecting on your work.• As always, you get marks for criticism – don’t praise the work saying ‘it doesn’t need improvement’. We can always improve!
