One of the aims of the doctoral school is to trigger collaborations between the students and so students work in groups on projects during the evenings. I'm in a group of 4 with other PhD students from the University of Sannio and the Second University of Naples. Our project is based on a case study from Boeing and we have two weeks to come-up with a fairly detailed analysis and design for the given problem. Our project title is "Ultra Large Scale Integration Business Use Case of PLCS", there is more information about PLCS here.
Rather than try and give a vague solution to the overall problem, we decided to pick a small part of the problem and focus on that to see if we can propose a feasible solution. We gave a presentation about our project today; it describes the problem from our viewpoint and discusses our proposed solution, its evaluation criteria and shortcomings. Our team won the best project award.
