PLAN OF THE WORK Document the plan to be implemented in achieving the specific objectives listed in the
Introduction. This section must convince the reader that you know exactly what needs to be done and how long it will take.
This documentation will take three forms. The first item is a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) that lists every task that will have to be completed and how long it will take in hours. Your project must have a minimum of 15 technical tasks required for completion. Points will be deducted if there are fewer than 15 technical tasks.
Time to Complete in Hours
Table 1 Work Breakdown Structure
The second item is a Gantt or PERT Chart produced using appropriate software. Regardless of the format there needs to be a detailed explanation using the Work Breakdown Structure approach and define the exact tasks and sub-tasks that must be completed (when the task is scheduled to start and when it is expected to finish), the deliverables and their associated due dates, the predecessors and if working as a team a description of who is responsible for each task. A typical project will require approximately 80 hours of technical work and 40 hours of documentation.

Teams of two or more also need to stipulate who is responsible for each task. The project will require an additional 50 hours per team member. (i.e. a two person team will require a total of 170 hours of work.)
The third item is a diagram that describes the major elements of the project and how they are related. Examples include a system block diagram, an initial schematic diagram for a circuit, flowchart for a program, process flow diagram, etc
