Guide on Reporting Percentage Completed:

For software development tasks:

  • use 0% if the solution is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the solution's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the solution is implemented and tested within the Ticket branch;
  • use 75% if the implementation review is complete, the Ticket branch has been merged onto the Trunk branch, and the Ticket is closed.
  • use 100% if the affected Trunk packages are tagged and released.

For level of effort tasks, use % of effort expended rounded to nearest 5%:

For other tasks, still use these increments, but apply their meaning as best as possible:

  • use 0% if the deliverable is still being designed;
  • use 25% if the deliverable's design is completed;
  • use 50% if the deliverable is implemented awaiting review/approval;
  • use 75% if the deliverable has been reviewed and in revision;
  • use 100% if the deliverable is approved and posted to appropriate repository.

Note: Please place an asterisk (*) after the percent if you updated this value in this report.

MOPS Analyses Axelrod Tim
Complete analysis of runs of FindTracklets/LinkTracklets? and OrbFit? driven by simulated DIASources 10/10/08 11/24/10 Axelrod Tim[20%],Myers Jonathan[75%] 75% Determined that the number of false tracks returned by LinkTracklets can be reduced by several orders of magnitude by use of a cut on prob(chisq) for the fit of the coordinates to quadratics on the sky. Significant numbers of true tracks are eliminated by the initial implementation of this filter, however. The cause has been investigated, and determined to be due to the varying accuracy with which the true ephemerides match the polynomial model. We are now working to quantify this accuracy, which would allow a more accurate prob(chisq). 1/24/11
