My client is my manager and the end user is an installation engineer. What the client wants is what the client would like the product to have.
And the client’s needs is what will satisfy the end users need. The clients and end user wants are things they wish the product to have but they may not need it. The client is interested anything that could help the end user. So what the clients wants are may not meet what the end user’s need.
My client wants me to create a software that will allow the end user to access their data away from the office without using a computer. My client wants this software to be used in small handheld devices such as smartwatches, smartphones and phablets. My client wants handheld devices to be used so it would be easier for the end user to access their data away from the office easier. Purpose The main reason my client has asked me to design a software application is to make the work of the installation engineer easier. The software application will allow the installation engineer to message the staff inside the office while they are outside of the office. The role of an installation engineer is to go to the homes of their clients and interact with them and install the equipment they requested.
Once they install the required equipment they send a report to the main office. The app will enable the end users to send their report electronically and their feedback from the client. The app will help the end users find the homes of their clients. Interfaces The hardware that is compatible with my software application is a smartwatch and smartphone.
The reason why I chose to use smartwatch for my application so the end user can record how long it takes them to perform a task. For example an installation engineer will use a smartwatch to see how long it takes them to install an equipment. Another use for a smartwatch is they can speed dial and use their voice recognition to call people. This will be useful for an installation engineer because he would be doing multiple task so it would be useful if the software can all the office without the engineer have to do anything. This applications will also allow them to send their reports electronically to the office. In order for the smartwatch to function the end user will need a smartphone from the same operating system.
The application will only need an android operating system in order to work. So the end user can use any smartphone that has accessed to the play store. The application won’t be available in the app store on an IOS operating system which is the apple operating system. The smartwatch will be extendable so it is ergonomic and can fit in any users wrists. The smartwatch will have antistatic material so the user can avoid getting electrocuted.
Limitations The limitation I will face when making this application is Target platform, bandwidth (internet speed requirements) development resources, human resources (how many people will be working on this software) development resources
