Week/Milestone 4Posted: October 21, 2015
Wendy talked us through Milestone 4 which is the sustainable plan and she also explained how IP will effect us at this point. Sustainable plan is what happens once we’ve finished the project, in our case in 2 weeks, and who takes it forwards. Are we involved after our project? does the client want to use us or do they intend to take over the IP rights? What I’ve come to understand is that when in university, when doing a project under its institution, owns the IP rights. This is unless we argue the value of our work and this can lead to us getting the full IP for it.
Sustainable plan is the legacy of the project and the plan for it to continue. While the project plan is costings that surrounds the project e.g. Material costs, Hours spent, overheads, travel expenses, food, etc.
