Progect Guid:

This document contains general guidelines for the preparation of the Project Report I. Please note, that the guidelines are general and for the sake of consistency all students are encouraged to follow them. However, it is quite possible that some project contents and results are better stated in a different format/structure. In such cases, students should develop appropriate modifications to the outline below and inform the instructor. Finally, if you have any questions or need any clarifications, please email or make appointment to discuss.
The report is a summary of your work on the three data sets you have been assigned to analyze. The original data has been provided in a form of an Excel spreadsheet, where data sets are arranged as columns. Data in each of the columns has been generated from a different probability distribution each.
The report has to have all of the sections listed below, unless it is indicated otherwise (e.g., some sections are marked as optional, meaning that you may decide to include them, even though they are not mandatory). In summary, a report should consist the following elements/sections:
• Cover page
• Table of contents (optional)
• Executive summary
• 1. Introduction
• 2. Project work
o Data
o Analysis Approach/Procedures
• 3. Results/Discussion
• 4. Conclusions
• References

COVER PAGE: Project title, due date & name of the author (e.g., your name)
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Maximum one page summarizing the key results and findings of the project work.
