I'm writing a problem statement, how can I improve this?

Posted 02 May 2019 - 03:07 AM

I'm writing a problem statement. The web app i'm going to write is a todo list with a backend database to store previous tasks even with the browser being closed and reopened.

This is what I have so far:
Many developers tend to lose track of tasks and goals for a day of development. A web application for storing tasks whilst simultaneously completing and deleting finished or unwanted items would help developers visualise the tasks that need to be done on their screens and enhance their production time, practicality and moral during the working hours.

Any tips, improvements or just anything to help me is appreciated.

It depends who the problem statement is aimed at, and what it should achieve. Are you trying to persuade people the end result is worthwhile? If it is just for yourself then a clear statement of the purpose is sufficient.

"morale"

simultaneously is probably the wrong word.

The problem statement is going towards my software development course I am on at the moment.
The spec I have been given is very brief and does not include much help.

The notes I wrote down from a meeting with my assessor were:
  • Explain what the problem is
  • Show all requirements( What we're going to develop )
  • Functions ?

I am not sure where you are struggling.

Explain what the problem is
Essentially, people lose track of what they should be doing

Show all requirements( What we're going to develop )
Outline the requirements / what is needed

Functions ?
If you only have this one word to go on then I would probably outline methods such as AddTask(task), DeleteTask(id), etc..

Either seek some clarification or... provide as clear details (based on the preceding) as you can.
