Broke project down into phases to provide more reliable estimates of time frame and cost.
RyanThe Deliverable December 10, 2009
RyanPASS TO JESSE – Web Front-End
Amy Once the user enters the Request for Service through the website, an email containing all the information is automatically generated and sent to Winnipeg 311.The Email will contain: Email Header – To, From, and Subject containing the Service Ticket #User Info – When the ticket was submitted, and the username it was submitted underService Info – Special comments added by the user, a picture (if uploaded) and the google map indicating the problem location.Modify Ticket – Links to close or report abuse
AmyInformation regarding tickets can also be viewed via the administrative desktop tool. Built entirely in PowerBuilderConnects into the Broken ‘Peg databaseAllows the user to do the following:Enter the Ticket Maintenance windowEnter the Search WindowGenerate ReportsAbout the programExit the programWhen the Ticket Maintenance window contains the following sectionsSection that allows input of ticket information to be maintainedStatus Open/ClosedThe user then has the following options:Add TicketDelete TicketUpdate TicketExit Currently Open WindowPASS TO JASON – Risk Analysis
JasonWe will develop our system so it is similar to Winnipeg 311’s current systemEmployees will not have to learn a new system, it is just a new method for external users
JasonManage timeline by breaking the system into phases (as discussed earlier by Ryan)We will be able to better estimate when each phase will be deliveredLess delays
Pictures/Inappropriate Content in TicketsTicket information (including pictures in later phases) will not be displayed until it is approved by an internal user.In terms of internal users interacting with inappropriate ticket content, the client will advise his employees on Winnipeg 311 protocol.PASS TO DAVE – Networking & Database
David – Talk about hardware & softwareDistributed services between two servers – allows for expandability and enhanced stabilityServers layered behind a firewall – forwards traffic only for services essential to operation
Benefits / Track Record of CentOSSmoothWall BenefitsApache – Proven track record / excellent PHP integrationMySQL – Scalable, enterprise-level DBMSAnd now Kyle will talk briefly about our Use Case Diagrams
Kyle-Identified the User’s ability to submit the ticket as the most critical use case. -Submitting ticket triggers the email alert,sets the system into motion.-This process must be quick, efficient, and easy to use.-Feedback will be provided to the User to aid in producing an error-free ticket quickly.
Kyle-backend desktop app for administrative use-add ticket, potholes reported via phone, then submit-modify existing tickets that are in the correct state(not in progress, complete, etc)-login, logout to keep track of users(auditing actions)-search and delete, for internal house keeping
Kyle-embedded coding in the email process actions performed by the administrator-clicking on a link will trigger an action, auto update status/state of the ticket-can change status to something else manually-view any photos uploaded in a larger view
John – Conclusion & Invite QuestionsThank you for giving us the opportunity to show you Broken Peg. The whole concept of making the data open and available is a quickly growing trend. By creating Web 2.0 applications we open doors to greater transparency, participation, and collaboration in an effort to improve services provided by our clients. If you have any further questions we would be glad to answer them (pause) or you can contact us though email at firstname.lastname@example.orgNetwork ManagementComputer Analyst/ProgrammerWeb DevelopmentDatabase Management
