    3. Logbooks
      1. Please drop off your logbooks in the Project Lab.

    Project Completion Report

    This is meant as a way to provide final closure to your project – where equipment is to be transferred, what items will be held by the team, and what responsibilities are to be done by the group after the project conclusion.

    Use the online guide to Project Completion Reports:   ProjectLab – GuideToProjectCompletionReport (PDF) »,   (MS Word) »

    Although this document is not marked, you must complete a Project Completion Report and return to the Project Lab prior to your final mark being released in late Feb / early March 2010.  Failure to do so will likely result in your mark for the course being withheld.


    The APSC459 students start very soon –  clean up your areas in the Project Lab, and return your empty storage bins to the lab.  APSC 459 students will be moving into the lab ASAP.  Please notify the lab if you cannot get your project transfer and cleanup fully completed by the START OF THE 3RD WEEK OF CLASSES IN JAN.

    Your material may be placed in storage if you do not notify us in advance of your plan.

    Final Reports and Materials Back to Sponsors

    Please forward copies of your reports directly to your sponsors, and ensure that they have received all materials, deliverables, software, and other material that they should receive as part of the conclusion of the project.  It is the responsibility of each group to ensure that the Project Sponsor receives all of the information.

    All Project Sponsors will receive a note from the Project Lab indicating that students will be forwarding all deliverables and reports back to the sponsors, and will be asked to submit a questionnaire to provide feedback for the team and the lab and deliverables.

    Keyfob Return

    Please plan on returning your keyfobs after the 479 course is complete and your area is no longer in use.  The lab will be in general use by the incoming students, and access should be transferred over to them as the term progresses.  At minimum, please drop by to chat with Jon or Bernhard to discuss extended keyfob access for the Project Lab.
