Having decided upon our course of action through the ideation feasibility matrix, the fuel assessment team spent a decent amount of time brainstorming how we were going to get a MVP up and running. Since we were running on a time crunch, as well as operating on a limited budget, improvisation was required.

We have taken elements from each into a design we can build with...

Being an assessment project, there is a lack of clear direction and thus, we felt it was essential to establish a system that would help us achieve our month goal. In order to manage our tasks and have a clear outline of the project for July, the team came up with the use of a Feature Driven...
