Project Metrics

Team Chipmunks makes use of the following 3 metrics to enable us to be more effective in project planning. Of the 3 metrics, the team introduced the Workload Metric to monitor individual focus segments on a per iteration basis.

  • Workload Metrics – The objective of this metric is to view quantity of hours spent on particular segments, and then preempt if more people need to work on a particular segment (given that they have the appropriate skill set required). You might have noticed that we labelled ‘Graphing’ as one of our segments! This is because our application has a pretty strong focus on frontend technologies and visualization. Hence, we made the split to segregate responsibilities for greater trackability.

Project Risks

From Acceptance, Team Chipmunks’ top 2 concerns were 1) unfamiliarity with the technologies and 2) inefficient allocation of resources. These concerns were allayed as the team became proficient in their own roles and technical competencies. The other 2 risks identified which took the center stage till Mid-Terms were the need for deeper domain knowledge and scope creep. Domain knowledge came in form of 1) understanding the project domain and requirements and 2) translating these requirements into codes. It was later discovered that several functionalities require us to have deep knowledge in the finance and statistics area. The team also experienced requirements churn, which was identified as one of our medium risks.

Quality of product

Quality Attributes of the System
Performance – Team Chipmunks had testers which reported slowness when navigating through our website. Hence, the team did File Minification using Grunt to compress JavaScript and CSS files to reduce file size and HTTP requests. This reduces the fetch times of these resources. Additionally, Team Chipmunks enabled browser caching to optimize load times upon repeated visits.

Usability – StockParser focuses on visualization of information. Hence it is necessary for the visualizations to be mobile responsive on various resolutions. While our chosen library D3.js allowed us to have great degree of customization, there were no ready-made codes to handle mobile responsiveness. Furthermore, our visualizations go beyond the standard set of a single graph. Hence, multiple tweaks were required to handle multiple visualizations [graphs on graphs] along a single row, responsiveness across multiple

tags and upon screen resizing.

Reflections


Team Reflections

This journey has been a tough but fulfilling one for Team Chipmunks. Collectively, the Chipmunks have gelled together, learning each other’s strengths and weaknesses and are proficient in complementing each other’s working style. We focused on constant communication, knowledge sharing and quantitative objectives in goal setting to help us move quickly and effectively as a team.
