Project Specification

It's the first major deadline for my project, and so the project specification is complete. See the PDF file below.

spec.pdf (171kb)

Specification abstract:

This document specifies the details, such as the title, problems, methods and objectives, of James Williams’ project for module CS310. Having been assessed for feasibility, the components of the project are split between core and extended parts. Also included is a proposed timetable and a discussion of the required resources and any issues such as ethics involved in the project. This specification is subject to constant review.

Highlights:

• Investigation Aims:
   1. Investigate the extent of the use of IT in the Church and the attitudes towards it.
   2. Investigate how IT could have potential further use in the Church.

• Aims of the Software aid for leading music:
   1. Develop a new song organisation system to replace the songbook system.
   2. Enable easy key transposition
   3. Make a tool to recognise what key spontaneous singing may be in.
   4. Include a function to recommend songs for a setlist.

• Diagram of Key components & their relationships:

"Hello World!

Welcome to the blog for my 3rd (and final) year project. My name is James Williams, and my project's name is 'IT in the contemporary Church'. 

This blog will track the progress of the project, plus notes and downloads related to it. 

To find out more about the project module, visit the CS310 webpage. My supervisor is Steve Russ.

The (current) abstract for the project is:

An investigation into the current and potential uses of IT in a church.
A suite of programs could then be created for solving problems found in the investigation, for example an aid for leading corporate singing, with key recognition and set-list generation/recommendation. 

Whatever your reason for being here, you are quite welcome. Unless maybe you're looking to hack this blog, or do something else nasty.  But otherwise, 'hello!' :-)

If you want to contact me, please do by clicking here.  Thank you and have a good day!
