Note -- each iteration in your CS372 project is an incomplete iteration in the sense that no software is developed or tested. This is because (1) this course is about what is done before software is developed, and so (2) this course has no assigned lab time etc.
How ever you will be expected to go back and correct errors and improve your documents at the start of each iteration. No document/artifact is ever finished...
Give me hardcopy because hardcopy can be read 3 times faster than softcopy. It is also cheap and easy for me to mark it up with advice and corrections.
It should be readable and in good English. It shouldn't need clever layouts, figures, fonts, .... Keep It Simple. Focus on content not glitz.
It will help you if you have two or more soft copies saved. I will be asking you to revize it each time a project deadline comes up.
Students have used Yahoo and Google groups and their own web servers to help them develop documents for this and other classes. Another viable solution is DropBox which lets you store documents and data in the cloud. I would be glad to invite people to join because I get more storage when I do this.
I would suggest appointing some body as a [ project librarian ] for maintaining your artifacts.
I figure that between two and four (2..4) pages (single sided) should do it. Use any of the techniques covered so far to help present your case if you want to. Note: We will get more technical in later reports. This time you are writing for an executive -- Keep It Simple.
