Senior Project - Sasquatch


An Interactive System for BugBuster Scheduling

Senior Project: 1993-1994
Carl Grinstead, David Merkel, Mark Peterson and Jon Simmons

A BugBuster is a student who is scheduled to go out on calls to help VIPs with computing problems at the University. Along with him/her they may need to take pieces of equipment that CNS has only in limited numbers and are in high demand. At a glimpse CNS needs to know who is available for what times and which pieces of equipment are available to go with them. The existing system used a book very similar to that of a hair dresser -- each person gets a column and each column has the hours of each day when the service is provided and indicates when the student is available. Information specific to each appointment was kept on separate appointment sheets. The goal of this project was to design a scheduling program for the Macintosh to replace the existing "paper and pencil" method of BugBuster scheduling. The program provides for a central server of scheduling information which may be accessed via the network by client programs used by individual BugBusters. Through the client graphical user interface, a BugBuster may schedule appointments and resources, keeping detailed appointment sheets of information related to each appointment. The software was developed using an object-oriented design in C++.
