4. Planning

DESIGN CYCLE STAGE 4: PLAN

1. Gantt Chart

Now that you have the CAD drawing of your piece of furniture, produce a Gantt chart that shows a timeline of the tasks you will follow to produce your piece of furniture.

Please see the Functional Furniture Assessment checklist for an example of how the Gantt chart should look.

2. Cutting List

Now that you have a CAD model of your furniture design, you need to create a cutting list of all of the materials that you will need. Print a copy of your CAD model and number each part, and If two or more parts are identical, then give each of these the same number. Once you have each part numbered, then fill out a table similar to the example shown below:

Part Number Length (cm) Width (cm) Height (cm) Quantity
