3designCycle-en.pngPLAN





Planning is a crucial part of the whole design process.
Project management is a crucial skill and is very transferable to other subjects.
You should have a:

Production Plan:
Step by step guide for creating that could be followed by someone else.
  • Use Drawings to illustrate construction.
  • Indicate tools/equipment/skills needed.

A Materials List (type of material, size, number required)

Plan your Time.
Include a Timeline or even better a Gantt Chart (Time management tool.)

Tom's Planner!!

Evaluation of your plan.
  • Does it make good use of time and resources?
  • Could someone else follow it and make your design?
  • Is it logical?

Examples

Here are some examples of student work.They may look slightly different from how we do things at TIS, but they can give you a good idea of what is expected.
They have not necessarily achieved the highest level but the level achieved has been included when available.
Please click on the project name to read the background for each example so that you understand more about what each student was attempting.

'Junk' Project


This work achieved level 5 because the student:
  • produces a plan that contains a number of logical and detailed steps
  • includes the use of resources and time in the plan
  • evaluates the plan.
The student would have achieved a higher level if she had evaluated the plan critically and justified any modifications made to the design.

Steady Hand Game Project


This work achieved level 6 because the student:
  • produces a plan that contains a number of detailed logical steps
  • describes the use of time and resources effectively
  • evaluates the plan and justifies the modifications made to the design.

Battery-operated Lighting Unit Project


his work achieved level 4 because the student: * produces a detailed and logical step-by-step plan
  • includes resources/equipment and time in the plan
  • makes some modifications to the design specification.
The student would have achieved a higher level if she had evaluated the plan.
