SmartAmerica Project Timeline

SmartAmerica Project Plan (Example)

Please note that this project plan is presented only as an example to assist the participants in SmartAmerica Challenge. Participants are not bound by this project plan. However, we encourage the participants to establish their own milestones including functional specification, test plan, documentation of the demonstration scenarios and test results. Each participant/team may have their own project plan to address their unique requirements, but we encourage teams to design milestones that can be completed by the end of April 2014
