Technical Methodology (AHRC)

 

Data Acquisition, Processing, Analysis and Use

Does the project have realistic milestones within the timetable for delivery? Is the process of technical development robust and has the proposal demonstrated how the standards, formats, hardware and software relate to each other? Has there been appropriate consideration of the issues of backup, monitoring, quality control and document control?

 

Does this section of the plan cohere with the project management details outlined in the Case for Support? Is the technical delivery embedded within the research project as a whole?
 

Hardware and Software

Has the choice of hardware and software been clearly explained and satisfactorily justified? Are they appropriate to the nature of the output being produced? Do they represent value for money in delivering the output? Do the choices create any potential problems for ensuring sustainability and accessibility?

Standards and Formats

Has the choice of data and file formats been clearly explained and satisfactorily justified? Are they appropriate to the nature of the output being produced?
