The planningwas helped to complete the project as if there weren’t any deadlines than noone would know how long they have to complete the activity. Also if therewasn’t any planning in the project then no one would know what they need to do.If I didn’t make a plan then the money that the client gave me would be spenton useless things and may my staff could have taken the money for themselves.
The good features of the planning process was that I finished some of theactivity before the deadline and this gave me time to complete other activitiesfor example the software development part. Also I didn’t run over the budgetwhich helped me a lot as I would have to take a loan out if I did run over thebudget, the design process was fairly straight forward as all I had to createwas a simple interface which the elderly and people who have less/no knowledgeabout a smartphone. We used the product development lifecycle andsomethings went to plan whereas other things didn’t go exactly as we planned.We meet all the deadlines so far and we hoping that we meet all the otherdeadlines. The meeting went good as my staff had given me ideas on theinterface and helped me a lot in the process. Also there are many other thingsthat my staffs have helped me on. We have mitigated the risks that we thoughtof and so far we haven’t be troubled with a big problem.
The hardware of theproject was good as we planned out and designed it. We made a prototype whichhelped a lot as it showed me the problems that I may have with my app. Itshowed me that I will have problems with the hardware and it wouldn’t store thedate of the car, it will lose it. Also the customer didn’t like the interfaceof the prototype which helped a lot as if I didn’t make the prototype then Iwouldn’t know if the customer wouldn’t like the interface.
Also there are otherthings that went good, for example when we interview some customers to getfeedback they give us ideas on how to improve it. Also some customer’s feedbackwas reliable as they interest in the app. The less good features of the planning process was that Ispent more time on the software development stage as I had to add securityfeature in order for the information about the customer isn’t leaked. Also someof the buttons didn’t work and I had to make changes in order for them to workand also for them to do something that they are made for and nothing else.
Myentire task was finished before the deadlines. There was a minor change in theplan as the software development to a lot of time and everything else wasfinished before the deadline. There weren’t any unexpected events that affectedthe process because I haven’t come across it; also I am on track with theplanning stage. I haven’t lost any data and none of the data got leaked, alsoall of the files were available for me.
I wouldn’t change anything in thisproject as I am track with the project, however if I’m working on a biggerproject then I would spend more time doing some the activities in order for meto meet the deadlines. One thing that I would improve on is spending moretime on creating the software of the app as I feel that haven’t spent that muchtime on it. If I have spent a lot of time on creating the software then I wouldbelieve that there will be other features that you can use on the app. I wouldspend a lot of time on the app as it would have improved some of the problemsin the app and it would improve the interface of the app. Another thing that Iwould improve on is the budget as it would help a lot because then I could havemore staff who are can create the software and this will take less time. Therewill be more staff if I had more money and this will have taken less time.
