Abstract:LochemEnergie has the goal to provide the City, and possibly the whole municipality of Lochem, with facilities that provide sustainable energy. This is meant to be achieved in 2030. There can be thought of projects that provide, solar, wind or water energy, as well as helping the citizens with minimizing the waste of energy. For a year, Lochem Energy has provided a service with which the people of Lochem can rent a vehicle for a short period of time. This project was so successful, that the board of LochemEnergie has decided that this project should be extended and made free some money to improve this service. At the moment the procedure of renting vehicles is being managed by a lot of volunteers. The procedure is not efficient at all. Every reservation is processed manually and the confirmation mail, maintenance, billing, etc. is done by the two brothers. This costs a lot of time. If LochemEnergie has the desire to expend, which it does, this process should be automated. Therefore, several parties are busy with the development. This project is also a part of the development. At first, information is gathered to identify the need of the users for this app and the functions it should provide. All the desired functions of the app are looked into, as well as the realization of these functionalities. Some functions would be really great for this app, but it cannot be realized, due to technical difficulties or not being able to access the desired information. After looking into all of the different functions, a first prototype is made which is mostly interactive as it looks the same as it should when the app is fully functional. This way, by testing the prototype, information could be gathered to improve the app in the future. After building the prototype, the prototype is put online and feedback is asked on this from several parties. This feedback could unfortunately not be fully processed into a next prototype.
