Project Manager, Robotics IoT development project (freelance)
Scope: The goal of the project is to develop and produce a working prototype of a special purpose robot, addressing substantial challenges of original innovation, multidisciplinary coordination, system complexity and a compressed timescale. Not only software sub-systems but also mechanics, electronics and firmware modules are designed, developed, produced/sourced, integrated and tested.
Responsibility: As Project Manager, I am in charge of a cross disciplinary innovation and development project within the area of robotics and IoT, leading both the technical team as well as the engagement with and delivery to the customer. The project is being undertaken by a Berlin based team of 8 engineers for a prestigious US-based customer. Details are subject to an NDA.
Results: The approach to development and delivery I adopted is a combination of Test Driven Development (TDD) and Continuous Integration (CI). The methodology frameworks applied are Agile Scrum for delivery combined with Prince2 for project governance. Following a re-assessment and re-planning effort throughout March, the project passed so far 2 of 3 delivery milestones on track.
