1.1 Purpose of this document
The purpose of this document is to provide an overview of the tangible and intangible requirements for the development of the RU Entertainment Android App for R-SPaCE. In addition to the Android app, we will be developing a central website that will simultaneously update the app, R-
SPaCE’s website, Twitter account, and
Facebook account; requirements for the website will also be included in this document. The intended audience of this document will be our client, R-SPaCE (including our point of contact
as well as the Board of Executors), Tesseract Design (Team 07), and Dr. Lewis-Williams.
1.2 Scope of this document
The requirements elicitation team was Jennifer Gay, Tucker Lein, Justin Price, and Cody Robinson. This team gathered the requirements for the project and presented them to our client contact at R-SPaCE, Amanda Sorenson, and our Software Engineering professor, Dr. Lewis-Willams. The team may also contact Amanda Sorenson and possibly other R-SPaCE members to gather requirements about the specific information they distribute. Constraints for this process are that it must be completed by 03/22/2012. Also, all project requirements must be specified as required by the Waterfall software development process.
The R-SPaCE Entertainment App will serve as an event notification system for students and other users with a listing of current and upcoming events sponsored by R-SPaCE. All events, performances, and presentations will be cataloged by type of events and by date. The app will be accompanied by a centralized website that will be managed by members of R-SPaCE. Through this centralized website, R-Space will be able to simultaneously update all digital means of information distribution (i.e. R-SPaCE website and social networks like Twitter and Facebook) with information concerning current and upcoming events.
