Home Media Multitasking Interface
1.1 Introduction and Problem Statement
Hierarchical Task Analysis can be utilized in task scrutiny especially in a well-developed structure. HTA encompasses describing the task regarding task-subtask grading and a collection of plans intended to work under certain situations (Schmidt 3). The home media multitasking Interface (HMMI) is the interface, which can be used, in a different scenario. Due to the advancement of technology, most people are searching for software that can enable them interacts with different media platforms. In this regard, the marketing trends have promoted the use of digital systems that can should a wide range of features for the consumers such as music, photos, movies, and television shows (Whitehead et al. 13). Furthermore, most customers are inclined to purchase devices that can access these media from a single unity. The modern culture has also encouraged people to multitask hence empower them to switch between entertainment and work applications and conduct their responsibilities as effectively as possible. For this reason, the home media multitasking interface (HMMI) should be used (Lanubile et al. 39).
However, in the current market, few applications can satisfy the customers demand in the utilization of integrated media interface. The majority of consumers are inclined to use this product because it offers convenience (Schmidt 15). Similarly, they require a system, which is easier for the majority of individuals to use. The market is need of an interface that offers some level of customization for power users and experts and not overloads individuals with extraneous information (Lanubile et al. 40). In this regard, production of this kind of platform requires that system and industrial engineers to develop this kind of next-generation interface (Whitehead et al. 17). Moreover, they should also have an adequate understanding of what the users need to do.
The stakeholders will involve persons who will deliver information concerning the system being developed and who will provide the information on work prioritization and requirement (Baber, Harris and Stanton 3). They include government agencies, employees, directors, creditors, software engineers, suppliers, and owners as well as the community from which the company generates its resources.
Constraints are factors, which are out of control during the development phase but are likely to affect the production process. Some of the constraints include lan
