Great jobs team!
During this semester, I’ve had a very pleasant experience with the flight simulator project and the 6 people team we had. For each week, the goal was clear, the help was there, the communication was well carried out, and the whole team was productive. I want to point out that even though we were separated into 3 groups in 3 different locations, the net and phone meetings were very helpful and the frequency of twice per week was adequate. But most importantly, many thanks to our boss – the IBM people – for their time and effort in meeting with us and helping us out when we needed.
At the beginning of the term, we split ourselves into 2 sectors: Diane and I decided to work on the graphical indicators, and the other 4 people were to design the scenarios. So my main contributions are as follows:
- Designed different types of graphical indicators, at the end we decided to implement two types: dial and break down bar.
- Implemented the break down bar, which is useful for integrating and comparing multiple values being monitored.
- Created examples for the indicator.
- Documented on the indicator action that we implemented. Details can be found here. Procedure on how to create a new type of indicator is on the bottom of this documentation, so future contributors can add more useful means of representing data values.
Here are the files that I worked on:
