Technical Requirements Report
This purpose of this report is to provide an analysis of the business and user requirements for the Bazaar Ceramics website.
Bazaar Ceramics has been operating for 20 years and have grown to a point where they need to reach a wider audience in both a sales aspect and an advertising one.
The website will provide an avenue for exposure to the international world for advertising purposes and also allow for the sale of items over the internet through an online store.
Advertising costs have risen in recent times and is becoming an expensive way to promote their products, the website will provide will help reduce a number of advertising running costs.
A number of data gathering techniques have been used to assess the project, including: • Interviews
From these a list a Functional and Non Functional requirements have been found. Amongst the key requirements were the online shop/catalogue, gallery, mailing lists and online order forms (See Appendix F for full details).
Interviews have been held initially with the key stakeholders to get an overview and direction for the project. A workshop was held, this workshop provided the foundation for the Functional Requirements
The only thing left open at the end of the workshop was the ‘Look and Feel’ component, the use of Autumn colours with highlights is the direction we have been given, along with the ‘Crisp’, ‘Contemporary’ and ‘Arty feel’ keywords describing the website as mentioned in the initial interviews.
Questionnaires to all the Account holders were sent, this was to gain some feedback as to customer requirements for using the site.
It is recommended that we split this project into 2 stages. The first stage will be used to lock down the ‘Look and Feel’ component of the website. As this company is in the creative arts field, the ‘Look and Feel’ of the website has an important role to project the right image for the company. The second stage will then add the Functional requirements to the site.
