Abstract/Artist Statement

Timestream is an Android mobile application that aids in project management using the Scrum methodology.

Scrum is a common development process that is used with software development. It consists of several iterative steps that are adjusted according to the progress of development. These steps are:

  1. Product Backlog Creation - A list of features for the product is created.

  2. Sprint Planning and Backlog Creation - The length of time for each sprint, tasks to be completed, and task assignment are set at the beginning of each sprint.

  3. Sprint and Standup Meetings - Each team member updates the team daily during a Standup Meeting about their progress and if they are blocked on certain aspects of their designated task.

  4. Testing and Product Demonstration - The completed tasks are tested and shown to the stakeholders. The team receives feedback and adjusts tasks accordingly.

  5. Retrospective and Sprint Planning - The team reviews pros and cons during the sprint. The next tasks are designated for the next sprint and the cycle repeats.

A team usually consists of a Scrum leader and team members. By considering the administrators and project managers, another layer of organization is added.

The purpose of developing Timestream is to reduce time spent on Scrum applications for organization of tasks. The fine granularity of Scrum makes it difficult for managers keep track of multiple projects. This mobile application reduces the difficulties that managers have to stay notified about progress without the constant meetings with team members for updates or being overwhelmed with unnecessary details. Timestream allows production managers, developers, and business administrators to view the progress of a project in varying granularity depending on their needs.

On Senior Project day, a brief presentation and demonstration of the mobile application will be given.
