Define the scope of your project.
here are few boundaries to this initial phase of the project. Use your imaginationand have some fun. Please develop a scenario or story in which you have a collection of itemsor entities that are in desperate need of organization so that they can be searched, accessed,and used by some defined set of users. . Your items/entities may be documents, physicalobjects, artifacts, multimedia files (audio, video, animation, etc.), Web pages, or any otheritems that require some sort of organizational system.Regardless of whether your items are digital or analog, your organizational system for them willbe digital (i.e., this is
just a physical organization or placement of items in containers, onshelves, etc.).Your scenario can be based on a real situation at work or home, or can be entirely fabricated just make it something IN
ING to your team, because you will use the scenario and typesof items in the other parts of the project.
he more detailed you can be about your scenario,the easier the rest of the project will be.
his collection will be actively used, searched, and accessed.
his collection may grow in terms of number of items.
Your organizational system may evolve over the course of its development.
Your collection should contain items that are rich in detail but not too complex.
