Construction Timeline

For my project a number of things must happen to build the jewelry box of quality I hope to achieve. First I must create a CAD of the box so that the cutting process will go smoothly. Once the CAD is done I will move onto cutting the wood in the Idea Forge makerspace. Drawings of each piece will be helpful while in the makerspace so I will remember to make those and print them out during the CAD phase. Next I will need to assemble the box before the finishing touches can be made. A timeline for each of these events is provided below:

April 19th: Finish CAD and drawings of box

April 21st: Cut wood so it is ready for assembly

April 24th: Assemble box so finishing touches can be added

April 28th: Add finishing touches to box

    Sounds like a solid plan. Always leave some extra time at the end to account for any unforeseen challenges you might need to overcome. Don’t let yourself get behind schedule.

    Sounds like a good plan! It is a good idea to take into account that the time to actually design/build anything always takes a lot longer then expected.

  • I think this is a good plan! But I agree with Marcus to include the rule of 7 in your timeline! Everything always takes a lot longer than expected! I am confident you will get it done though!

    I think that you have a good sense of the time that it will take you to accomplish these tasks in order to meet the deadline. Do these dates incorporate the rule of 7 that was talked about in class?
