1. Creates APIs from backend side to allow frontend to take and use it to pluck into their graphs, data tables.
2. Using of Angular 4 to allow better UI.
3. DAO commands to handle database queries and map to DAO.



We conducted 2 user testings, one on the 10th August and another one on the 6th October. We conducted the first test with 6 users from Flex-Solver and the second test with 3 users from Inter-Rice. From these tests, it allows us to see things that never know was a problem, so it enables us to constantly improve our project.
We did regression testing per iteration. This is to ensure that when we complete a new function, the older functionality should still be functionable. In this way, we are always ensuring that constant testing is done for every iteration so that when the whole application is done, the bugs will not be accumulated to the extent that we have no time to debug.

Team Reflection:

1. The whole project is not easy, and before we take up this project, we came together as a group to discuss the scope and realize that we might have to put in a lot of efforts. However, our team came to a mutual agreement that we want to learn the most out of it instead of it just being a project. Hence, we put our utmost efforts into it to provide the most value for our client.
2. Nearing our mid-term presentation, each of the group member is busy with our own mid-terms and presentation, hence it is hard for each of us to commit to the projects. However, we realize the promise we made to each other at the start, hence we are here, meeting our X-Factor and presenting this application.

Individual Reflection:

Hsin Ning: Being a front end developer, I realised that frontend is not as simple as using CSS, HTML. There are many more frameworks and libraries out there to explore in order to create a good website.
Terence: FYP is a big project, a project very different from any other that I had in SMU. The most challenging, most time consuming yet the one that I learnt the most. I believe the efforts we put in will be worth while, as testing ourselves is testing the limits.
Kian Yong: I have learnt how communication plays a huge part in gathering requirements and meeting expectations of the client.
Myo: Being a Project Manager, I realized that different teams have different signs when we are in the “zone”, for this group is when we start using more vulgarities.
Mark: Quality is key in any product. Keeping the developers and I on our toes by making sure each module not just works but works seamlessly. Learning how to handle expectations of the clients and team is important in any project. By developing comprehensive test cases and working closely to developers I have and hope to continue to produce quality and functional products.
Chong Chieh: I used to aspire to be a software developer. I guess FYP made me realize that it might not be the path for me.
