|External consultant: Tom||Weekly|
|1||Battery life of at least a month||High|
|2||Programmable through microUSB connector||High|
|4||Contains rechargeable battery||Medium|
|6||Has buzzer and/or beeper||Low|
This should be done for around $50 or less.
Most of the parts will be bought from online vendors like eBay and RS Components.
The watch will be of a high quality in order to be easily worn as a regular watch, without having to make any special provisions i.e. taking it off for certain activities etc.
Rechargeable batteries would add a small amount of circuitry, and drastically reduce the long term environmental impact. Perhaps the case could be made from natural wood, to give it a more environmentally friendly look.
(possible control measures: reduce, avoid, accept, transfer)
|Scope badly defined||Project becomes too simple or too complicated||Medium||Reduce: confirm requirements with other stakeholders before getting to deeply||Low|
|Stakeholders conflict||Risk of damaging friendship||Low||Accept: we're both reasonable people and will accept compromise||Low|
|Stakeholders become disengaged||Less involvement from stakeholders||Medium||Reduce: make weekly reports to keep stakeholders involved||Low|
|Resource shortfalls||Project is not completed on time||High||Reduce: make weekly progress||Medium|
|Resource inexperience||Project is not completed satisfactorialy, or at all||High||Transfer: external consultant to check over work||Low|
|Design is infeasible||Project is not completed||Low||Accept: project is almost certainly feasible: someone has aleady produced somthing similar||Low|
|Battery charger poorly designed||Battery explodes||High||Reduce: design and test safe battery charging circuit||Low|
|Poor quality soldering||Product doesn't work||Medium||Reduce: solder with help of external consultant||Low|
|Decision delays impact project||Project isn't completed on time||Medium||Reduce: identify key decisions and make them quickly||Low|
|Vendors not able to supply quicky, cheaply and reliably||Prototype or final product can't be reliably produced||Low||Accept||Low|
There is a little HR to do with the stakeholders, but it should all be easily managed by effective communications.
Weekly progress will be important for the success of this project. I will have a working (wearable) prototype completed by July 1st.
