      PROJECT OVERVIEW
HA   “typical” course project might involve:
 – design/build/obtain appropriate testbed,
   environment, or platform for your project
 – extend/customize as needed
 – obtain relevant data/measurements needed
 – design suitable experiment: clear goal,
   identify factors, levels, performance metrics
 – obtain and describe (new/interesting) results
