Customers Short presentation of customers Background Experience with previous student projects Intention with project Expectations
General Course Characteristics The entire project life cycle Focus on early phases (Analysis & requirements specification) Product to be considered a prototype or a part of the full deliverable Project methodology is waterfall model or SCRUM Project meetings and coaching every week Normally very good results! Customer needs to: Allocate time to meet the group and ensure that the students know what to do Make available necessary information/documentation to the group Allocate time to read phase documents and provide timely feedback Allocate time to answer questions within reasonable time Make available special software or hardware before end of September Show up at NTNU on 20 November for presentation and demo
Confidentiality We prefer open and ungraded projects Normally the report will be available afterwards, but we can withhold the electronic version if needed IPR normally regulated by NTNU’s regulations Ongoing work on new IPR policies: Liberal and BSD-inspired IPR: standardavtale08e.doc standardavtale08e.doc
Economy Customer needs to provide necessary software if NTNU does not have student licences Students cannot be offered money for the work they do, but it is acceptable that the customers invite the students for example to dinner, e.g. after the presentation/demo. Further work – customers can hire students to complete the product after the project has been terminated.
Project Deliverables Final report Maximum 200 pages + appendices Documentation of all phases Prototype of (parts of) solution Final report and prototype to be presented to customer and examiner on 20 November.

Main Supervisors Jon Atle Gulla Reidar Conradi tel Geir Solskinnsbakk tel Gustav Aagesen Shang Gao Sundar Gopalakrishnan Sundar Gopalakrishnan
Main Supervisor’s Tasks: Should meet assistant supervisors at the start of the term to clarify expectations and coaching approach Clarify meeting schedule with assistant supervisor before notifying the students Meet assistant supervisors regularly to discuss state of project and correct any problems Proactive supervision of work on preliminary analysis. Many groups find it difficult to get started.
Assistant Supervisors Hong Stig Basit A. Kahn Bian Meng
Assistant Supervisor’s Tasks Remember that you are not the one to be graded You should be a discussion partner/motivator/coach You should read in detail. Main supervisors do not read in detail There is no excuse for showing up unprepared to meetings You should be available to your groups You supervise together with the main supervisor You should take part in meetings with the customer You should ensure that the customer respects the limitations of the course (response times, equipment, software, work load, etc.). Contact main supervisor in case of problems. You should check your groups’ user manual and installation guides against the implemented prototype. Decide on date and time with your groups.
Some Tips to Supervisors Be familiar with ”kursheftet” Be proactive in the early stages of the project Structure of report: Introduction in every chapter Systematic presentation of results Consistency Terminology Numbering of figures and tables Decisions well justified Style of language Report maximum 200 pages + appendices
