There are people that need help at all times and with the help of the Donations module it will be possible for organizations to quickly donate much needed items to the people that need them quickly and cost effectively.
This module will support organizations that are looking to make supply donations to emergency management services in times of crisis. The donation module will keep a virtual database of all the items that can be donated in times of a disaster and will also be able track offers for donations made by organizations.
This module will need to have access to three already completed software modules in order to be effective. These modules are the Inventory module, Supply Module, and the Request Module. Each module will perform a vital role in the Donations module. The Inventory module will keep a virtual inventory of any item that can be donated so that organizations can make meaningful and quick contributions to disasters. The Supply Module will keep track of how much inventory that’s already been donated and that we currently have. This will ensure that no money is wasted on items that are not needed. The Request Module will keep track of organizations that have requested to be able to donate to emergencies and will harvest data to find these organizations.
Here is an example of a mind map detailing the phases and people involved on the project. This is subject to change.
Here is an example of a Gantt chart displaying the tentative schedule for the project.
Volcano User Case
There is a hypothetical volcano that has erupted in Hawaii and there is a great deal of property damage and fatalities. With the donations module it would allow clients to see what items are needed in Hawaii and quickly donate those items without wasted time and money. When a client selects the Inventory item, a current list of items needed and where these items are needed shows up. The client can then click on the donations link and get a full list of items that are needed across the globe.
This is a design mockup of the Donations site where clients may donate items and see current inventory.
Here is an example of the surveys that will be given to provide better feedback for clients.
