Project Risks

Risk Description Category Impact Mitigation Strategy
Digital color in application may not match the physical color of nail polish. High Users may end up dissatisfied and no longer use the application. Before ordering, a message will be displayed in the application. It will state that a money-back guarantee is provided if users do not think their nail polish color match with their requested color.
Team is unfamiliar with android development. High Project may be potentially delayed due to time spent on learning. Initial quality of application may be affected as there may be more bugs. PM has allocated more time to Iteration zero to learn about android development.
Sponsor not confident of delivering within project timeline. High Users may not be encouraged to use the application since their desired nail polish may not be ready. Team proposed that social module be the first item that users see to encourage them to actively use the application which sponsor agreed and accepted.

Individual Reflection

Name Reflections

Sanjay Nelagadde

I have to be the one to ensure that all of us stay motivated, and that we have fun while working hard towards achieving a memorable experience for IS480. I am now able to better manage our busy schedule to ensure proper schedule planning.


Ng Kiat Keng

I understood the importance of having a proper test plan so as to ensure efficient and yet high quality testing. Doing this project made me learnt a lot new things about colors and how we have been taking something so simple for granted.


Lim Ting Zhi

Being in charge of the whole project’s design have forced to constantly improve on my designing skills. I have gained deeper insights on the different designing techniques on beautifying the Android UI.


Chua Feng Ru

Understanding and designing the Google Cloud SQL and endpoint was no easy task. Doing this taught me how to better design a database based on our app requirements. Finally, I have learnt how to better integrate different people’s codes at different timing.


Foo Yee Cheng

I have learnt about various new programming functions and this has widen my technical knowledge about android. Dealing with colors in Android has been very interesting so far as even something like colors can be calculated using numbers.


Lim Yu Xiang Bendexter

There is a huge learning curve for Android programming, but together as a team we helped each other out and this made the process an easier and memorable one.
