Regarding project estimation, e.g. time and budget, where do you start if you were as a new start-up engineer and don’t have that past experience in the area to make a reasonable judgement/estimate?

For example in the situation seeking grants or seed funding for new IoT idea

Many ICT projects are run under an Agile methodology. However, sometimes Agile can end up Fragile. Have you had any experience running IoT/IIoT projects under an Agile methodology? (You mentioned Jira during the webinar)

Regarding Intellectual property protection.  How much weight does copyright carry in China whereby a number of manufacturers are making the same product for multiple OEMs. Is it worthwhile considering Patents in China?

Not a question.

For reference, we also use JIRA for issue tracking and development. And Atlassian Confluence to control all our project documentation.

Also we use Altium for pcb design.

To answer Steve's question on project management tools.  We have assessed and just committed to a 24 month license for http://cammsproject.com/,for integrated project management across the company, with an integrated timesheet system which they are modifying to tuit our needs (for a fee).  It provides some collaboration facilities.  I will let the community know how it goes down the track.

On JIRA, we use it is a number of ways.  I would commend it to others - especially good as it it Australian-developed, wo we can support local industry.

For software development, we have an inward-facing setup on our server for the developers ot track iissues and bugs.

For software support, we have an outward-looking cloud based setup for each project, whicht he customer can access.

We also use Jirafor ittue tracking for our ISO 13485 (medical) Quality Management System (like ISO9001 on sterouids).  This has a customised work flow to magane issue trackingiun accrodance with ISO13485, including steps for risk managemt. We use this JIRA setup for Corrective and preventative Action management.

The same work flowcan be used generally by omitting the medical product specific steps.

We use Subversion for software configuration control, on the basis that it is the "least worst"  - have looked at more modern systems but nothing much out there impresses.

IMO best tool for all of these things is a sharp human brain.  Without this, the tools generallty make things worse than doing nothing!
