Project Risks

Risk Event Probability Impact Mitigation Plan
Incomplete deployment onto production server Medium High Immediate debugging session
Further changes to requirements Medium High Regular meetings and feedback from client to ensure timely delivery

Technical Complexity

Rank Complexity Reason
1 D3.js Change of library from Chart.js to D3.js. Found that suitability of chart.js for visualisation is inadequete, thus the change. However, due to the limited time and steep learning curve in addition to other unfamiliar technologies and libraries we had to use, the dashboard development was quite challenge.
2 FullCalendar V3 Customize some additional features which are not included in the library. So in this case, one of our feature would be to show a tooltip when a user hover over an event. So in order to do so, we need to learn and pick-up JavaScript, and make changes to existing method provided in the library.
3 Quartz.net Scheduling of different threading’s to run at different timing of the days to perform automated tasks. Complex because certain automated jobs need to take place before another thread can trigger other jobs.

    PolyVision

    Collectively, Team PolyVision have a better understanding of their individual capabilities and limitations. The team has managed to pick up ASP .NET Razor markup language as a result of having every member responsible and accountable for a portion of INSIGHT application to foster greater ownership. And when the occasion arise that business needs are not fully aligned with the initial set of requirements, effective communication is paramount to align every stakeholder involved.
