My MoSCow

Prioritisation Analysis

When it comes to my application I needed to do an prioritization analysis based on my app. Below I have looked though the many ideas which I Must include, should include, could include and also won’t include. This is to help me when designing what I must have thought about in my work to what I must not have included. Then I can move onto what it should have to make the app stand out and be interesting to then finally think about what it could have to test myself a little in what I can do for my project. Following is my MoSCoW process…

  • Ability to scan barcodes using camera.
  • The ability to store a database on food items
  • Display a warning disclaimer

  • Update itself over time
  • Store previously scanned items
  • Alternative searching method
  • Add more dietary needs
  • Have related products to search
