At the beginning of the project, I planned out the tasks which I would need to complete to finish the project. Afterwards, I planned these out up until project deadline, with particular considerations as to how much time each task would take. Notably, I planned to finish five days before deadline in my plan – I predicted that each stage would include issues and errors that I would need time to tackle, thus left room for adjustments.
Therefore, this was a flexible plan. The very nature of using Excel spreadsheets to plan it, allowed me to adjust the dates of each stage once I spend a little shorter/longer on a task. Some of these changes included lengthening the moulding process to deal with the silicon taking longer to cure than predicted, shortening the amount of time I would need to match the skin tone of the cast.
I will review my time management throughout this project, in the final blog post.
