For the summer, I wanted to get a good start on my engineering notebook by analyzing the game, strategizing, and brainstorming different ideas. I don't have the option to choose any teammates until school starts again.
This leaves me with a problem: I don't have any idea of how I should approach my engineering notebook for the summer months. I have a few concerns, and it would be great if people could weigh in on them:
- If I choose to start writing in the summer, I can't have a team introduction and roles section at the beginning of the notebook, which seems to be the preferred format. Would it be just fine to put that section later in the notebook when I have teammates? I don't think that there's a hard, specified format for it, but I think I could be docked points somehow.
- I know that I should try to work with my team for as much of the design process as possible. To what extent should I work on the design without my teammates in the summer? (I was thinking of doing game analysis, brainstorming, and strategizing.)
- When school starts again, should I just do a faster version of the steps that I already did, but with my teammates this time?
