I have a few months to go in my MASc program in Aerospace Engineering. I'm not tight for time or anything, but I'm curious if anyone has tips on how to manage results.
My research is highly algorithm-centred, and there are a lot of little knobs and dials on the algorithm that I added as I went along, and I'm still tinkering with it. I know what they all do, but there's no way I can do a detailed analysis on the effect of each setting.
My advisor says it's important to have the results in say figures and charts etc exactly reflect the algorithm as written, which I agree with. But how will I know when the algorithm won't change anymore, that this is how it will be, and these are the final results? Otherwise I'll end up creating the figures 10x over. I could leave the figures out till the very end, but often the discussion is around features in the figures.
I know there's no silver bullet, but wondered if anyone had good tips on managing that sort of problem.
