High Level Overview of Schedule
In order to organize our scheduling for this year in a dynamic format, we have established Gantt charts that reflect our current schedule.
A Gantt Chart is a chart in which a series of horizontal lines shows the amount of work done or production completed in certain periods of time in relation to the amount planned for those periods. This allows for goals, persons assigned to goals, and timelines for goals to all be displayed in a clear manner.
Below are the Gantt Charts for the team systems:
This year’s budget was constructed mostly with the use of the previous years’ spent budgets as a guideline. Last year’s budget had to be assessed with the context that due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and Lafayette College Guidelines at the time, purchasing anything proved to be rather challenging. Below are links to the currently proposed budget breakdown by subsystem, as well as links to previous years’ budget documents and an organized assortment of the actual amount spent on each subsystem each year. The team assessed that most subsystems would need about what a previous year spent, other teams, such as the battery team, knew that while most parts had already been manufactured the addition of a working charger would need to be included in their budget as well. As of now we are on track to spend the least that car team has needed to spend on this project.
