I spent the past 6 months working on a software project. Now that it is finished, I am writing a report about it. The sentence below describes the purpose of my project:
"The purpose of this project is to allow its users to generate images programmatically."
I am confused about the correct tense for this sentence. Since the purpose has been fulfilled, should I say "The purpose of this project was..."?
I am also unsure about whether the word purpose is the most appropriate one. Consider this version:
"The objective of this project is to allow its users to generate images programmatically."
The same question applies in this case: since the objective has been accomplished, should I say "The objective of this project was...?"
