Software Requirements Specification
1.0 Introduction:
This document contains specific requirements of our project Work to worker -services to the unorganized sector. Our project is a web based solution to solve the problem of the unorganized sector such as masons, carpenters, gardener etc. It is an approach to reduce unemployment and also make finding right people for the right job much more easier. Objective of this system is to provide work to the workers and solution is focused on the unorganized sector . In this web based innovative solution, the worker registers himself for a particular skill/skills that he is good at, the profile of the worker is visible to all the general public who look to avail services of some kind, so using this system general public or organized sector (includes contractors) can select the worker as per their need. Now as the general public selects a particular worker for some work, our system sends notification to the worker in concern about the work and the customer details like his address and name. The general public /contractors can give feedback about the worker in the fields of his dedication, behavior, habits etc ,through the system, to ensure better services every time.

1.1 Purpose: The purpose of this SRS is to define the overall functionality of our project . It specifies all the requirement parameters needed to implement our project. The basic purpose of our project is to help the unorganized sector in getting work. They register for a particular skill or skills and later receive work updates. Further, this project also helps general public and organized sector (contractors) in getting various workers of unorganized sector at one place. It provides general public and organized sector (contractors) with choice of workers. This project also focuses on providing worker the necessary information regarding their rights, governmental scheme , health care ,etc.

1.2 Scope: Work to Worker is a Web-based solution through which worker (s) registered them selves for a specific skill. Using this system general public or organized sector user can select the worker(s) as per their need. This Online System that is to be developed provides the members(workers) with jobs information(work), online applying for jobs and many other facilities. The work for worker System is supposed to have the following features.

      You’re welcome. Please note that there are some parts which have been left out deliberately so as to avoid spoon feeding to the project participants.
      Please care to see the changes you may need to do in class diagrams and sequence diagrams depending upon your tools and design.
