  1. 1. RCOS Eden (Sahana Eden Development)<br />Cihan Caglayan<br />
  2. 2. Hiatus<br />In late October, I injured my back pretty severely <br />I was:<br />Absent from many classes<br />Very behind in class work<br />In a lot of pain<br />Unable to put considerable work into this project<br />I am:<br />Completing the bulk of this project over the winter break<br />Meeting with Prof. Moorthy once a week<br />
  3. 3. Recap<br />Sahana Eden is:<br />An HFOSS Disaster Management System <br />Written in Python, and built on top of web2py<br />My project is:<br />An extension to Sahana Eden, leveraging their system and development community<br />Business tools targeted to medium to large scale fair trade enterprises<br />A set of Eden modules that can activated for this type of deployment<br />
  4. 4. Ten Thousand Villages Workflow <br />My initial use cases revolve around the workflow at TTV:<br />TTV contacts organizations involved with unemployed or underemployed artisans around the world<br />The two groups work collaboratively to gauge artisanal skills, and develop products that will be marketable<br />They must agree on a fair trade price<br />Artisans produce goods, and TTV sells them online, in stores, and through other sales<br />
  5. 5. Why TTV?<br />They are the only organization to get back to me despite multiple attempts at contact<br />It is a large and successful organization<br />They are one of the founding members of the Fair Trade movement and exemplify successful FT work<br />
  6. 6. Why Not TTV?<br />Realistically, it’s unlikely TTV will be willing to try out the software once a stable release is put out until there are other users<br />Using this workflow as a starting point, and trying some different avenues to get more information from other organizations<br />Going to target some smaller organizations to see if one is willing to deploy a stable version<br />
  7. 7. Features<br />Prospective Modules<br />Artisan Management (In Progress)<br />Artisans – contact information, skillset, availability, location<br />Can assign artisans to orders<br />Order Management <br />Orders – Contact information, order details (items, quantities), deadlines<br />Items – Description, required materials, required skills, etc.<br />Possibly integrate simple tools for the producer/retailer collaboration<br />Gantt charts for order visualization<br />Supply Chain Management<br />
  8. 8. Tasks/Schedule<br />Finished<br />Preliminary research<br />Ongoing<br />Scouting out organizations for more info/deployment possibilities<br />Module development<br />Design documentation<br />Future<br />First release by the end of winter break<br />Far into the future<br />Mobile capabilities<br />
  9. 9. Thanks!<br />Thanks to<br />Prof. Moorthy<br />Sean O’Sullivan<br />Helpful Sahana Eden Developers<br />Fellow RCOS members<br />I invite everyone to continue to check the Fall ‘10 Dashboard over the Winter Break<br />I would appreciate any feedback you may have on my design materials, documentation, or code!<br />
