Astin Martin
Electronics
request of planned deliverables, acceptance criteria, quality
plan, and work breakdown structure. These items need to be provided in an acceptable
time for Astin Martin to review and approve.
Astin Martin
Electroni
cs
further requests other deliverables to include final software

documents (system and development level)
All project questions or request for project scope changes should
be directed to the
Astin Martin
Electronics
designee (course instructor).
There is no requirement relative to project tools used to generate the required data.
Topical requirements
include:

System Engineering: UML design
artifacts
for
graphic widgets to di
splay
aeronautical expanse gauges
for interface testing
within the technical specs
guidelines for twenty

five different visual aspects. Include appropriate level of
peer review. Design should include graphical mock

up of gauges.
