Abstract

More broadly within the healthcare domain, the prospective value of persuasive mobile technology is seen in changing individuals by incorporating persuasion features into the design of mobile phone technology. In this regard, most of the researchers have paid attention to develop persuasive applications, but they yet failed to provide guidance on how the persuasive guidelines can be implemented, in particular in software architecture. Hence, the studies existed before did not follow any systematic processes into software architecture for analysis and designing the persuasive technology applications. Therefore, the distinct gap in the previous researches relating to transform the persuasive components into software requirements and functionalities. In light of those major reasons, this paper proposes a general systematic process to analyze the customers’ significant requirements of the software to be used independently of the problem domain. One of these domains is an obesity problem among Malaysian children, and the most significant treatment of this case is parents’ involvement. To this end, this paper applied a systematic process in monitoring the children’s obesity status among parents. Findings showed that systematic process is suitable and convincing for collecting required requirements from stakeholders to set final software design in the right way.
