Discussion/explanation of assumptions made, techniques used etc

Software tools like Gantt charts were created to schedule the project and keep a recording of which tasks need to be done by which group member. The Gantt chart also showed the list of project activities and estimated their duration. Meetings were arranged every week to discuss project issues and to continue work on the project. These meetings gave members in the group a chance to ask questions about topics that they were not finding easy to handle.

UML, ERD, sequence and activity diagrams became advantageous as they were used to analyse our work. The ERD diagrams helped users to interact with the website and showed them how to search for items and how to purchase them. The ERD diagrams are a good example of techniques used by the group of how to manage the project as users could use the diagram as a manual for the website.  

Skills of each member in the group were analysed and tasks were handed out to each member based on that information. Screen designs were used to design the website which made the development of the website quicker to create.

Conclusion

Consistency & Accessibility

The site was consistent with its colours and layout throughout the site this never changed which mad the site much easier to navigate around. accessibility the site was very easy to access it could be accessed through a number of search engines including Google which made it easier just in case someone forgot the web address.

Summary

Browsing the site is very easy everything is set out in an appropriate layout and the search facility on the site helps you find products easily. It is very complex in reading the site as everything is squeezed in together and there is so much to look out on each page. The menu bar at the top of the page is a good way of getting around the site it’s always at the top so you won’t get lost.

Effectiveness of the site

Strengths:

  • Easy to navigate- menu bar and search facility helped to make this possible.
  • Easy payments- allow customers to be able to use a variety of cards.
  • Consistency- the site stayed the same throughout.
  • Helpful- helpdesk, phone or email would help customers.
  • Delivery free delivery including outside the UK.
  • Secure shopping- Nat West secures payments and secure shopping certificate.

Weaknesses

  • Overcrowded- there was too much information and advertisements on the site.
  • Text size- the size of the text was too small would not be able to be seen by people with sight problems.
  • Products- there were not a variety of products other sites such as eBay provide more variety.
  • Shopping basket don’t shows items only total and number of items.
