I want people to understand that this is a proof of concept with 4 forms.
I’ve received several proposals, some of which look like they think this is going to take weeks of development. However, if I was creating this in WinForms it would take me a day, maybe two. Then about a day to get the app to the customer and talk about the things I need you to explain.
For this reason, I want to understand where the risk is in the project and why I have such a wide variance in quotes.
I’ve added an additional information and clarification sheet and a screen definitions and details sheet. Please read these and the original document.
I would consider a full working week of 40 hours very generous for this project.
###END OF UPDATE###
General information for the app: Mobile engineers will get a list of jobs to be completed with locations and will update their jobs as they complete them.
Kind of development: New app from scratch
Description of requirements/features:
I’m looking for a developer to create an android application. The mobile application will work in support of an existing production Windows application. It should work on phones and tablets.
The main application is an installed Windows desktop application that connects to a SQL Server using ADO / direct data calls.
At this stage I am looking to create a simple ‘proof of concept’ application that will have simple functionality. The purpose of this is to:
• Demonstrate to our customer that the application can be created and how it could work
• Start a conversation with the customer for a full specification
• Generate an indication of cost for the full application, which will indicate the feasibility of the project.
At the moment, the ‘proof of concept’ project is just for an Android App but in the future, this may need to become a cross platform application.
Important: Although this is a proof of concept application it is not a throwaway prototype. It must be developed in an extendable / extensible way. There must a clear pathway for adding new functionality.
We would only want applicants to apply for this project if they are available to work on it both in this instance and in the future. Although we can’t and won’t hold anyone to working with us in the future we would want you to come into this project with an eye towards future work.
The Desktop App
In very simple terms the desktop app has a register of assets and a user can create jobs against the assets.
A job will have the asset details, a creation date, a call date, an initial status (Not Started), fault description and details about who reported the fault. The job can also be assigned to a specific technician.
Jobs can then be processed by a technician, updating the status of the job (In Progress, Completed), recording when they started work, when they finished work, how long they were working on the job and what they did. They may also add spare parts and tests details (for example the result of an electrical safety test).
The Mobile App
In brief, a technician will
• Log in using a username and password
• See a list of jobs assigned to them that have been planned for today
• Tap on a job in the list and view the details of the job
• As the technician works on the equipment he will enter
o When he started work
o When he stopped working
o How long he worked for (this is not calculated from the start and end times)
o What he did
o Whether the job is complete or an additional action is required
In this proof of concept there will be no need to add spare parts or tests but these will be required once the initial app is accepted.

Of course, what are your queries?Pooja U.13 Apr 2017
Sorry for delayed response..
Here are some queries:
1. Timings of starting and stopping job will be managed by server ?
2. In some cases, if job paused and and then started by other technician ? this kind of scenario possible ?
3. Do we have to manage list of technicians ? on the basis of second point ?
4. If job is started and then technician realize that job can not be completed by the end of the day, can he continue same job next day ?
I would really appreciate if we can discuss in detail on Skype.
Are you accepting proposals from a Front end "designer?".
i e some one who sees through the wire framing and mockup stage of design ?
If you are interested please clarify accordingly

I need someone who can complete the project. I have the database, that's it. I need someone who can create the app and the data access layer.
