ToDo: Haiti RMS
- Requirements/Blueprint: http://wiki.sahana.lk/doku.php/haiti:requirements#request_management_system
Suggest following the New Module Development tutorial as this is new functionality for Py:
Keep it real simple to start with - get something usable quickly, which we can then refine later if we gets needs to do so.
<chamindra> Basically there will be loads of requests for aid comming from the field <chamindra> by sms, through calls and otherwise <chamindra> and people will have to enter these (millions) of requests quickly into the system for tracking <chamindra> there is no time for complex workflows and approvals, so the the system has to be extremely quick <chamindra> if we can enter everything for a request in one html form that would be ideal <chamindra> similarly there will be loads of people offering donations of aid of vairous things <chamindra> often they cannot be used immidiately <chamindra> but they need to be tracked so that when a need arrises the donation and the person who offered it can be found <chamindra> This is the main objective of the request management system, to connect people wh o need aid and people who are offering it <chamindra> however to do the matching you need to agree to some measures <chamindra> I need 100 Kg of Rice <chamindra> bit the person that pledges can only offer 40Kg <chamindra> so you match it but note that there is 60Kg remaining to be delivered <chamindra> but you need to track the remain that was not fulfilled <chamindra> so we now have an added part of getting unstructured data from various sources <chamindra> basicially someone is recording some information about aid, without reviewing the content and send it to us <chamindra> first step is someone need to convert that to a request for aid or pledge <chamindra> so on click of the queue that is comming in (as a GeoRSS feed from Ushidhi right now of their SMS messages) you covert it to the first step of a request or a pledge <chamindra> once you click that item is no longer in the pending queue (it has been read and processed) <chamindra> So let's think through what a typical situation would be <chamindra> someone would make a call with a request or sms a request <chamindra> fist step would be to enter what is needed <chamindra> and it will be a list of items
