Use MS PowerPoint for your presentations, 10 to 15 slides should be enough. Your goal here is to convince the audience that your project is worth funding.
This ultimate end of term assignment will be an in-class deliverable of a presentation, and a complete project of which the topic will be a goal (or problem oriented) project of a real-world or fictional small business, or an enterprise-wide organization. Each student will plan, design, and implement (as a presentation) of a project that is worthy of several thousand to several million dollars in scope. Each project will consist of a Vision statement, IT Architecture, SDLC Overview & Requirements, System or Application Overview, Requirements Specification, System or Application Design, Test and Quality Assurance Plan Part I, Test and Quality Assurance Plan Part II and Development Strategy.
The Project Manager will be each assignment, think of the assignment as the Project Manager giving you a task to complete for your project.
The Program Manager will be me, your instructor.
The System Engineer will be you, each student that will have the primary role of planning, design and ultimately to implement the project.
Tasks (Objectives from Week 1â€“9)
- Project Selection
- SDLC Overview & Requirements
- System and Application Overview: An overview of the system or software application an intended users
- Requirements Specification: Detailed requirements specification with both functional and nonfunctional requirements
- System and Application Design: A high-level design in the form of use cases and detailed design models utilizing computer-aided software engineering (CASE) tools to represent the data, processes, and interfaces
- Test and Quality Assurance Plan Parts I & II: A test and quality assurance plan that included the various tests and quality control measures that need to be taken into consideration
- Development Strategy: A development strategy that weighs make versus buy or insourcing versus outsourcing acquisition strategies
- Integration and Deployment Plan: Develop an overall work breakdown structure (WBS) for the 7 system development life cycle (SDLC) phases:
Make any updates to the first 9 weeks’ content based on feedback from your instructor and your peers. Make sure that the Key Assignment has a good flow and is cohesive in its presentation of information.
In the previous 9 weeks, you were first asked to select a system or software application to specify requirements, develop a design using modeling tools, formulate development and testing strategies, and propose an integration and deployment plan. Each week, you contributed with specifications and plans that culminated in an overall Key Assignment System Requirements, Design, and Implementation Specification
For the assignments in this course, you will be developing an all-inclusive System Requirements, Design, and Implementation Specification. Your first task in this process will be to select an application or system to use as the basis of your projects. You will also create the shell document for the final Key Assignment project deliverable that you will be working on during each Unit. As you proceed through each project phase, you will add content to each section of the final document to gradually complete the final project. Appropriate research should be conducted to support the analysis in your report, and assumptions may be made when necessary.
The project deliverables are as follows:
- Submit your project proposal to your instructor for approval.
- System Requirements, Design, and Implementation Specification
- Use Word 12 pt. Times New Roman font
- Title page
- Course number and name
- Project name
- Your name(s)
- Table of Contents (TOC)
- Use an auto generated TOC.
- This should be on a separate page.
- This should be a maximum of 3 levels deep.
- Be sure to update the fields of the TOC so that it is up-to-date before submitting your project.
- Section Headings .
- Vision Statement
- Enterprise Architecture
- SDLC Overview & Requirements
- System or Application Overview
- Requirements Specification
- System or Application Design
- Test and Quality Assurance Plan Part I
- Test and Quality Assurance Plan Part II
- Development Strategy
- Integration and Deployment Plan
Your final implementation phase of your project will be a presentation given in week 11. The goal here is to convince not only me, your instructor but the rest of the class. Be prepared to answer questions as a defense to your project.
