  1. Habitat for Humanity PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  2. Team Mission • Improve the efficiency of HFH’s operations. • Improve data management and access to resources by Habitat affiliates through software solutions. • Design systems, structures, and floor plans to minimize home construction and energy costs. PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  3. Organization • National • Tutorials • National Database Project • Local • ReStore Point Of Sale PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  4. Associated Universities • National Database: • University of Notre Dame • Ohio State University • Butler University • Tutorials: • University of Wisconsin PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  5. Americus, Georgia • 28 Hour Bus Trip == Team Bonding PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  6. ReStore Project Garth Peterson – Industrial Management Pete Morici – Computer Science Mitch Harris – Computer Science Dave Livingston – Electrical Computer Engineering PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  7. Organization From Chaos... • The Goal • Point of sale & Inventory system for a resale shop type of retail environment. • The Challenge • #Products X #Brands => **Big Mess** • Flexible pricing • The Initial Target • Lafayette HFH ReStore (currently delivered) PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  8. Managing a Mess • A hammer's a hammer. • Group similar items together. • The hotter the fridge the hotter the price. • Track large ticket items on an individual basis • Price dictated by item's characteristics. • Condition • Brand • Features • Etc… PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  9. Mechanisms for the Madness • Software organized by function • Sell • Donations • Inventory • Reports • Use existing tagging schemes as much as possible • UPCA Bar Codes (The U.S. Retail Standard) • Categories for grouping items PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  10. Principles for Success • Expandability • Physically • Functionally • Compatibility • Hardware • Software • Ease of use • If it isn’t used nothing else matters PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  11. RISMasterView • RISBasicFunctionView • Transactions • Donations • Inventory • Reports • Etc… • Hardware Devices • Barcode scanner • Printer • Bar code Printer • Cash drawer • Etc… RISDataSource Cache JDBC RISMasterView Network Database Server PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  18. To Infinity and Beyond(Direction for future work) • Expand to support EAN-13 and UPCE bar codes • Fully implement the notion of a “Donor” • Custom cohesive visual icon theme • Enhance the inventory tab • Add graphing & printing features to Reports • Linking all ReStores via a Napster like network (Potential new national level project) PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  19. Tutorials Rick Bowerman – Computer Science Brian Mathews – Computer Science Pauline Lim – Management Ben Hall – Engineering Adam Steiner – Mechanical Engineering PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  20. Old Approach • Team created tutorials • Reviewed locally by Construction Managers followed by national approval • HFH dealt with distribution of tutorials PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  21. Design Shown to HFHI • Publicly generated tutorials • Reviewed • Posted to the web • Rated by public and HFH • Edited by public and HFH PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  22. Design for Next Semester We will create a generator that will be used by Wisconsin EPICS team to create tutorials for HFHI. Also, we will create an editor for them as well so that they can edit the revisions given to them by HFHI. PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  23. National Database Team Immanuel Alexander – Computer Science John Horst – Computer Science Anna Kretz – Management Jeff Ross – Electrical Computer Engineering Noah Solomon – Computer Science PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  24. 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

  25. 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 PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  26. Tasks • Completed • Beta Version Written (Spring 2004) • Design Documentation (Fall 2004) • Server up and running (Fall 2004) • Version 1.0 Delivered (Spring 2005) • Outstanding • Version 2.0 (Additional Features) PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  27. User Menus PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  28. National Level: Surveys • 4 Options: Create, Edit, Freeze, Decommission • Stored Survey Information: • Name • Questions • Response Types • Survey Status PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  29. Add Questions PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  30. Modify Survey PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  31. Local Level • 4 Options • Print Survey • Enter Responses • View Data • Edit Profile • Customer name is not stored by the local affiliate • Provides protection of personal information PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  32. Surveys PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  33. What's Next? • Local User • Retrieve Data • Surveys • Additional skipping functionality • View Data • Notre Dame • Suggestions from HFHI PURDUE UNIVERSITY

  34. Any Questions PURDUE UNIVERSITY
