problem statement
Problem Statement
  • Problems for HFHI
    • No centralized survey administration and data collection system.
    • There is no concrete quantitative data showing the benefits of the Habitat program to the community, both locally and nationally.
    • Homeowner information and responses must be securely collected, transferred, and analyzed

PURDUE UNIVERSITY

methodology
Methodology
  • Our Solution
    • Having a centralized secure server database for survey information and homeowner responses
    • Homeowner ID’s will be requested from the server but will be kept in paper records as to ensure the security of the information being recorded.
    • The web-based program will consist of three main parts:
      • A Survey Generator
      • Homeowner Response Collection/Input
      • Statistical Analysis
