Topic :
Viewpoint Requirement for the design of Information Display in eHomestay development

Research Background:
Nowadays, there are ample of homestay website that can be found over the internet. So, there are many kind of web design for each of the existing websites. The viewpoint concept will be use in this development. A viewpoint-based approach to requirements engineering recognises that all information about the system requirements cannot be discovered by considering the system from a single perspective. Requirements from a number of different viewpoints need to collect and organise. Viewpoints may be used to structure the requirements description and expose conflicts between different requirements for eHomestay.
The information visualization can be used for eHomestay development so that the customer and the people who visited their website can imagine what kind of environment and activity during the homestay. Information visualization is widely used for utilize computer graphic and interaction to reinforce human cognition. Some of the homestay operators are using the blogspot instead of creating their own website. This is because the homestay operator wants to display the important information.
Homestay Programme is an experience where tourists stay with selected families, interact and experience the daily life of these families as well as experiencing Malaysian culture. Homestay is not classified as accomodation facilities. It focuses more on lifestyle and experience, which include culture and economic activities.
Problem Statement:

Most of the homestay website display many kinds of information to promote their place. Unfortunately, the homestay operator doesn’t know what kind of information needed and how to attract the people who visit their website. This is due to my initial observation on 10 homestay website, the information display is not consistent among each other.

Aim :
The aim of this project is to develop a template for information display design for eHomestay by using viewpoint requirement.


  •           To identify what kind of information that want to be displayed by the homestay operator.
  •            To observe the different information display pattern of existing homestay websites in Malaysia.
  •          To develop a system design for graphical user interface that suits eHomestay.

Significance :
The study of viewpoints for requirements engineering is intended to formalise what we believe is a natural part of any analysis process. Recognising these perspectives and unification differences between them is essential if the analysis is to be valid. The significance of this study is for academic and practitioner people. For the academic mostly people who get involved in this study directly or indirectly such as the homestay operator, internal and external user or basically the stakeholders, because from here they can learn many new knowledge.
