Software Requirements Specification (SRS) for Child Education Planning Calculator

Introduction

Purpose:

The purpose of this document is to outline the requirements for the development of a Child Education Planning Calculator application. This application assists users in estimating the funds required for a child’s education, considering factors such as the child’s age, desired education level, and estimated education expenses.

Scope:

The Child Education Planning Calculator will provide users with a tool to plan for their child’s education by estimating the financial requirements. Users will input details such as the child’s current age, expected age at the start of education, desired education level, and expected annual education expenses. The system will then calculate and display the estimated funds needed for the child’s education.

System Overview

System Description:

The Child Education Planning Calculator will be a web-based application accessible through a browser. It aims to assist users in making informed financial decisions for their child’s education by providing accurate estimates of required funds.

System Architecture:

The application will follow a client-server architecture, with the client being the web browser and the server handling the education planning calculation logic.

Functional Requirements

Use Cases:

Plan Child’s Education:

  • Users can input details such as the child’s current age, expected age at the start of education, desired education level, and expected annual education expenses.
  • The system will calculate and display the estimated funds required for the child’s education.

Functional Requirements:

Input:

The system shall accept the following input:

  • Child’s Current Age (in years)
  • Expected Age at Start of Education (in years)
  • Desired Education Level (e.g., school, college)
  • Expected Annual Education Expenses (in INR)

Calculation:

  • The system shall calculate the estimated funds required for the child’s education based on the provided input.

Output:

  • The system shall display the estimated funds needed for the child’s education to the user.

Non-Functional Requirements:

  • The system should provide a response time of under 3 seconds.
  • The application should be accessible on common web browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari).

External Interface Requirements

User Interfaces:

  • The user interface shall include input fields for the child’s current age, expected age at the start of education, desired education level, and expected annual education expenses, along with a “Calculate” button.
  • The calculated estimated funds shall be displayed prominently.

Hardware Interfaces:

  • The system should be compatible with standard computing hardware.

Software Interfaces:

  • The application shall be developed using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.
  • The server-side logic can be implemented using a backend framework (e.g., Node.js, Django).

Communication Interfaces:

  • The application will communicate with the server for the education planning calculation and display of results.

Performance Requirements

Response Time:

The system should respond within 3 seconds for a typical user input.

Throughput:

The application should handle at least 50 simultaneous users.

System Constraints

Regulatory Requirements:

The application should comply with relevant financial regulations.

Hardware Limitations:

The system should be compatible with devices with standard web-browsing capabilities.

Security Requirements

Authentication:

The application may or may not require user authentication, depending on whether users want to save their child education planning data.

Data Protection:

If authentication is implemented, user data should be stored securely.

Quality Attributes

Reliability:

The application should produce accurate results based on the provided input.

Maintainability:

The code should be well-documented for ease of maintenance.

Usability:

The user interface should be intuitive, requiring minimal guidance.

Testing Requirements

Test Cases:

Test cases should cover various scenarios with different child ages, expected ages at the start of education, desired education levels, and expected annual education expenses to ensure accurate estimated funds calculations.

Test Case 1:

  • Inputs: Child’s Current Age = 5 years, Expected Age at Start of Education = 18 years, Desired Education Level = College, Expected Annual Education Expenses = 2,00,000 INR.
  • Expected Output: Estimated Funds ≈ 22,00,000 INR

Test Case 2:

  • Inputs: Child’s Current Age = 2 years, Expected Age at Start of Education = 6 years, Desired Education Level = School, Expected Annual Education Expenses = 1,50,000 INR.
  • Expected Output: Estimated Funds ≈ 7,50,000 INR

Test Case 3:

  • Inputs: Child’s Current Age = 10 years, Expected Age at Start of Education = 16 years, Desired Education Level = High School, Expected Annual Education Expenses = 1,80,000 INR.
  • Expected Output: Estimated Funds ≈ 9,00,000 INR

Acceptance Criteria:

The application is considered successful if it produces correct estimated funds based on the provided child education planning inputs.

Project Timeline

Milestones:

Design, Development, Testing, Deployment.

Development Phases:

Frontend development, Backend development, Testing, Deployment.

Glossary

None

Database Structure

Tables:

Child_Education_Planning_Records:

  • RecordID (Primary Key, Auto-increment)
  • ChildCurrentAge (Integer)
  • ExpectedAgeAtEducationStart (Integer)
  • DesiredEducationLevel (String)
  • ExpectedAnnualEducationExpenses (Decimal)
  • EstimatedFunds (Decimal)
  • CalculationDate (DateTime)

Conclusion

This extended SRS document provides a more detailed overview of the Child Education Planning Calculator application, including the database structure and additional test cases. It should be reviewed and approved by relevant stakeholders before proceeding with the development phase.
