Project Deliverables

The project requires students to perform three phases: (a) requirements analysis, (b) system and database design, and (c) a project plan. Note that in the phase 3, students are required to use the MS Project software for their project schedule.

The deadline for the Individual Project can be found in the schedule section of the class syllabus.

The following layout format covering a title page and all three phases is recommended for the project.

Title page (project name, author, and date)

Phase 1: Requirement analysis

A. Problem definition

B. Issues

C. Objectives

D. Requirements

E. Constraints

F. Description of the proposed system

G. Logical model design

1. Data flow diagrams

· Context diagram

· Diagram 0

o Diagram 1 (Diagram 1 is optional)

· Descriptions of processes in each diagram

2. Descriptions of outputs/inputs/performance/security or controls

H. Specific requirements, if any (interface, operational, resource, performance, etc.)

Phase 2: System and database design

A. User interface

Design an overall user interface consisting of screens, commands, controls, and features to enable users to use the system.

1. How data will be input to the system?

· The physical layout for each input

· The input design and procedures

2. How data will be output from the system?

· The physical layout for each output

· The output design and procedures

  

B. Data design

Develop a plan for data organization, storage, updating, and retrieval.

1. Database design 

· Database tables with their attributes should be presented

· Primary key(s) should be identified in each table, if any

· Three steps of normalization should be included.

2. Entity-relationship diagrams

3. Data file storage and access

C. System architecture

Determine the architecture of the system as Web-based interface, client/server architecture, Internet/Intranet interface, network configuration, etc.

Phase 3: Project plan

A list of tasks or activities needed for implementing the proposed system

Estimating completion time and costs

A project schedule for performing those activities (Gantt charts or PERT charts)

Note that there is no other required software package except the MS Project software in this ITEC-630 course. As a result, you are only required to use the MS Project software to handle the scheduling part of the project and for other parts, you can use any word editing software or any drawing tools software.

  

Individual Project Rubric

The individual project will account for 25% of your total points possible and students should use the APA format for the format of the individual project reports. The following rubric will be used when grading your individual project:

  

Qualities and   Criteria

Poor [0-80)

Good [80-90)

Excellent [90-100]

 

Format/Layout

§ Presentation of the text and structuring of text in   an organized and thoughtful manner

§ Follows phases requirements

(Weight 20%)

Follows poorly the   requirements related to format and layout.

Follows for the most part   all the requirements related to format and layout. Some requirements are not   followed.

Closely follows all the   requirements related to format and layout. 

 

Content/Information

§ All phases of the project are addressed and contents   in each phase are adequate

§ The project proposal is technically sound and   realistic

§ The project is done using techniques covered in this   course

§ MS Project software is used in the project plan

§ The project design can be implemented in reality

§ Activities and information are constructed in a   logical pattern among phases to support the solution

(Weight 70%)

The project does not cover   all phases and it is not done for the most part with techniques discussed in   this course. The required software is used poorly in the project plan. The   project proposal is hardly realistic and the tasks proposed can not be done   easily in reality. Activities and information among phases are badly designed   and do not support the solution.

The project covers all   phases with adequate contents in each phase for the most part and it is done   with some techniques discussed in this course. The required software is used   in the project plan for the most part. The project proposal is relatively   realistic and some proposed tasks can be done in reality. Activities and   information among phases for the most part are designed to support the   solution.
