SQA & PM 2008 : Assignment Question

Assignment 1 SQA & Project Management
Diploma Information Technology

CODE : ISE 2310
SUBJECT : SQA & PM
WEIGHT : 50 %


SQA & Project Management Assignment
Lecturer : Zainudin Johari

Due Date : 22 August 2008

Title of Project : Development of Orange Training Institute Information Systems


Problem Statement

You are tasked with developing a new student registration system for Orange Training Institute which is located in Bangsar Kuala Lumpur. The college would like a new client-server system to replace its much older system developed around mainframe technology. The new system will allow students to register for courses and view grades from personal computers attached to the campus network. Professors will be able to access the system to sign up to teach courses as well as record grades.
Due to a decrease in federal funding, the college cannot afford to replace the entire system at once. The college will keep the existing course catalog database where all course information is maintained. This database is an Oracle relational database running on an IBM mainframe. Fortunately, the college has invested in an open SQL interface that allows access to this database from the college's UNIX servers. The legacy system's performance is poor, so the new system must ensure that access to the data on the legacy system occurs in a timely manner. The new system will access course information from the legacy database but will not update it. The registrar's office will continue to maintain course information through another system.
At the beginning of each semester, students may request a course catalogue containing a list of course offerings for the semester. Information about each course, such as professor, department, and prerequisites, will be included to help students make informed decisions. This institute has 3 different kinds of students, Certificate, Diploma and Degree.
The new system will allow students to select up to four course offerings for any term. In addition, each student will indicate up to two alternative choices in cast the student cannot be assigned to a primary selection. Course offerings will have a maximum of 25 students, and a minimum of five students. A course offering with fewer than five students will be canceled. For each semester, there is a period of time that students can change their schedule. Students must be able to access the system during this time to add or drop courses. Once the registration process is completed for a student, the registration system sends information to the billing system so the student can be billed for the term. If a course fills up during the actual registration process, the student must be notified of the change before submitting the schedule for processing.
Head of School will be processing the registration forms in order to ensure the students adhere to the regulations stipulated.
At the end of the semester, the student will be able to access the system to view an electronic grade report. Since student grades are sensitive information, the system must employ extra security measures to prevent unauthorized access. The Head of Systems Analyst will ensure the systems are working well and should also conduct training for staff and students alike to ensure that the new systems are running smoothly without any hiccups.

Professors must be able to access the on-line system to indicate which courses they will be teaching. They will also need to see which students signed up for their course offerings. In addition, the professors will be able to record the grades for the students in each class. Professor are advised to teach only 3 subjects per semester and need the Head of School approval if they have to teach more than the required number of subjects.
The Professors would also be able to recommend suitable candidates by merits for scholarships to continue their studies at an appropriate level.

Task

  • Create an Introduction to your project
  • Create a Planning Report which include number of staff required, location, logistics, hardware & software requirements

Any special finding you have investigated worth mentioning should be added to give your report an extra edge.

You are also encouraged to add in pictures of the relevant categories that you could acquire either from the Net or newspapers cuttings.

Make your report as realistic as possible as we all know that this is just a fictional exercise.

All assignments should be submitted in a formal assignment format such as Introduction, Body, Conclusion etc.


Group assignment of minimum 2 and maximum 3. Report to me on “Sleepy Passengers”
Assignments must be handed in on time or at least on the stipulated date.
Extensions will only be given under exceptional circumstances and will only be granted if notification is received in writing.
Some reasons for not allowing extensions are:
• Extensions are unfair to those who have worked hard to deliver assignments on TIME.
• The lecturer cannot cover the solution until the last assignment has been handed in
• A late assignment in my subject would usually leads to late assignments in other subject, and leading to a deterioration in the quality of work submitted
• Rigid deadlines exist in the real working environment.
All assignment work should be substantially your own
Cheating or plagiarism will result in zero marks for the assignment, and may result in failing the subject or worse
All assignments must be A4 papers and bound firmly in the Project Report Cover clearly stated proper identification

PM 2008 Case Study 3


Dear Students,

This is the 3rd Case study. Good luck.

Case Study 3

Title : Manchester Airport’s Web Strategy

Dead Line for submission : 16 June 2008

Manchester Airport hosts about 18 million passengers per year, making it one of the UK’s busiest airports. The customers include a relatively high percentage of business travellers along with recreational travellers on scheduled and charter airlines.

The airport had a Web site but not a clearly defined Web strategy. The company saw the potential of the Internet to implement a simple to use document publishing system; the development of a major customer-focused Web presence; and to integrate partners’ systems to provide services to customers.

In essence the Airport wanted to develop online services that would generate income and ultimately increase profitability. In addition, it was thought that the Web site should offer local residents information in relation to the ways in which the airport might affect them as one way to maintain and improve community relations.

Manchester Airport has adopted a ‘Smartsource’ methodology for acquiring partner organisations to provide skills that the airport does not possess internally. The airport was aware it did not have internal expertise in web development so it would need to seek an outside partner to design, develop and maintain its web presence.

As the Airport has complex relationships with the companies that operate within its boundaries it was clear that the business objectives of the airport would need to be handled sensitively in order to maintain the high level of rapport enjoyed between all parties.

The Airport considered the Web site to be fundamentally important and so decided it should host the system. The Web site had to integrate with existing systems such as CRM database and messaging systems along with the platforms used by partners and suppliers. The preferred approach was to have a fully integrated system under the Manchester Airport brand.

An underlying principle was to make use of existing technology as much as possible. Also the solution had to fit wherever possible with existing skills sets in the organisation. The Airport decided to pick the technical infrastructure requirements leaving the supplier to design and build the solution.

The Airport required a solution developer with the technical expertise to design and develop a fully functional web site that was integrated with backend systems, that was qualified to act as a one-stop-shop partner who would assume full responsibility for the design, building and installation of the Web site, was able to provide 24/7/52 operational support, that could understand the Airport’s business and was able to communicate and work with all Airport staff.

The company chosen, from a shortlist of four, was based about 10 kilometres from the airport, met all of the Airport’s selection criteria and was very comfortable working closely with non-technical staff.

The first stage of the Web site provided up-to-the-minute details of arrivals and departures similar to those shown in the passenger lounges at the airport. This alleviated the number of calls enquiring about the timing of flights. The Web site provided the facility to book scheduled flights and hotel accommodation. Rather than develop a new system it was decided to integrate with the already-available Telme.com online travel booking service. This integration was designed in a seamless way.

In order to use many of the services supplied on the site, users must register on-line. This data is then utilised whenever a service is requested. If the customer wishes to book a flight via Telme.com then the airport’s own CRM (customer relationship management) system feeds information into the Telme system, receives data back and then passes it to the user as appropriate. A significant amount of effort was expended to ensure that the functioning of the Web site met the real world requirements of users by involving them in the testing process.

The second phase of the operation was targeted to exploit the new Web presence and the on-line Manchester Airport brand. The second-phase offerings included the ability for customers to:

· preorder duty-free products on-line

· reserve airport car parking spaces

· book charter flights and package holidays

· preorder foreign currency.

The Web site receives up to 500,000 hits per day. The benefits of the e-business systems are many. Passengers are feeling more comfortable with the Airport as a result of the Web site since they can understand the layout, parking, shopping and currency exchange facilities before they leave home. Local community residents can be informed of developments at the Airport which helps community relations. Through the on-line shopping and ordering systems, income and profits are increasing. Finally, there has been substantial increases in revenue to the airport from car parking. Prior to the new Web site an outside company had sole control of the parking and the airport only received 5% of revenue. Via on-line booking, 90% of the revenue now comes to the Airport.

Overall, the main lessons learned from their experiences are: exploit the experience of employees; work closely with the real end users and work with suppliers in a partnership fashion.

From an e-business perspective the system is successful because it provides what the users want in a convenient manner. Travellers require timely and accurate data and the new Web applications provided this.

Questions

Project Management 2008 Case Study 2


Dear Students,

This is the Case Study #2. Prepare. Dead Line : 29 May 2008 ( Thursday ).

Good Luck.

Project Management

PM 2008

Lecturer : Zainudin Johari

Case Study 2

Title : A Nightmare Project


All in a day’s work!

One day the boss called me into her office and offered me the leadership of a high profile internal IS project. At first I was rather pleased with the offer but as I found out more about it I wondered whether it is such a good idea to accept it. The boss informed me about some of the background to the project.

"Look", she said, "it is a good opportunity to prove your project management expertise. However, there are a number of problems related to the project of which I should make you aware. In fact the project should have started a while back. The trouble is there was a major dispute that we were unaware of between the two user departments. The project failed to get off the ground because of a dispute between two user departments - yes you guessed it, it was finance and marketing. Both felt they should be responsible for it and because of personalities that clash the matter just got worse. There is, as you are probably aware a history of conflict between the two departments."

"Well, I see! Who will be the primary users of the system", I asked.

"The users of the system will be from marketing, but the thing is that the information produced by the systems will also be of use to finance and they will want to query the data," she continued.

"Before we go any further, can I ask what happened to Gerry, he was managing the project wasn't he?" I asked.

"Didn't you know? Gerry is off work with stress and won't be back for a good while, however it is not all due to managing this project so don't worry too much", she replied. "The project is really very high profile and is in fact critical to the company's financial success. Even the CEO has told the two departments to get on with it and sort out the problems. I know that if the project doesn't get moving he will be knocking on my door asking for an explanation."

I accepted the project position and was provided with a project update which is summarised below along with some of my own thoughts from personal observations.

The finance and marketing departments have now assigned someone to the project to define the business requirements. Although the two individuals are experts in their own domains and they appear to get on well together the key user has not been identified. In fact both Department managers still want to blame each other if anything were to go wrong. At this point no other resources have been allocated to the project.

I have been told that the systems should be completed by the end of the year. The problem is that this is only four months away. It seems impossible to have the system up and running in such a short time.

I have still have a number of concerns such as will I still have to oversee the maintenance of System Alpha which I have been looking after for the past year? This takes about ten hours per week to attend to but the work is spread over every day of the week. My planned leave later this month will have to be postponed.

The new project looks to involve the development of new software. It will also impact on existing systems and databases. A large number of screens will have to be updated so there is considerable interface work to be done.

The team allocated to the project consists of:

Two Analysts

Both seem competent and appear willing to do some programming if required. Their knowledge of systems development techniques is acceptable. Both are motivated and work hard.

Junior Programmer

Is enthusiastic but lacks the ability to work independently and so will need close supervision.

Contract Programmer

Was taken on a number of months ago to work on a different project. Has some ability but appears de-motivated due to uncertainties with his contract. He could be a real problem and be a threat to the project if his attitude goes any worse.

Overall, my guess is that I need extra resources but the project can be completed successfully. Any advice would be appreciated.

Questions :

1. What do you consider to be the major issues related to the project.

2. Can the project be made a success?

3. What action should be taken and what recommendations made?

4. Was I foolish for taking the project on?

5. What is your idea of a “Successful” Project Manager?

6. Do you think a Project Manager can make a difference to a given project? Why and how?

7. How does this Case Study relates to your Assignment “ Bank of Putrajaya”?

At the moment you have only 3 Programmers and 1 Senior Program Analyst. You are required to conduct an interview to recruit new staff to full fill the company objective in completing the project. The project estimated to cost around RM6 million and will take almost the duration of 1+1 years to complete.

The Putrajaya Banking Systems should include these modules:

  • CIF ( Central Information File )

You are also to estimate the total cost of implementing both of the modules above.

Assumptions:

Project will take 13 working months.

Select a Project Manager from the members of your group.

No outsourcing will be allowed.

Hardware and Software acquisition worth RM10,000 and above need to be reported in writing to the Steering Committee.

Your task

1.Introduction about your company profile which includes address, name of company, board of directors, history of project ( at least 3 ) and others you think is beneficial that should be included in your profile.

2.Define that module very clearly in terms of scope and functions for the purpose of explaining to your Steering Committee and the Board of Directors.

3.Advertise on paper regarding the recruitment. Show the complete layout of the advertisement, which includes address, contacts, telephone number and dead line.

4.Plan to Conduct an Interview.

5. Cost estimation for both

6. Estimation should includes infrastructure of systems including cabling and networking, salary, hardware , software and other cost which you think possible.

7. Draw a GANTT Chart to schedule the entire project . You may draw any additional charts to simplify your scheduling task such as a Network chart or a Staff chart.

Any special finding you have investigated worth mentioning should be added to give your report an extra edge.

You are also encouraged to add in pictures of the relevant categories that you could acquire either from the Net or newspapers cuttings.

Make your report as realistic as possible as we all know that this is just a fictional exercise.

All assignments should be submitted in a formal assignment format such as Introduction, Body, Conclusion etc.

Group assignment of maximum 2 and minimum 1. Report to me on “Sleepy Passengers”

Assignments must be handed in on time or at least on the stipulated date.

Extensions will only be given under exceptional circumstances and will only be granted if notification is received in writing.

Some reasons for not allowing extensions are:

· Extensions are unfair to those who have worked hard to deliver assignments on TIME.

· The lecturer cannot cover the solution until the last assignment has been handed in

· A late assignment in my subject would usually leads to late assignments in other subject, and leading to a deterioration in the quality of work submitted

· Rigid deadlines exist in the real working environment.

All assignment work should be substantially your own

Working closely with someone else on a non-group assignment is considered cheating

Cheating or plagiarism will result in zero marks for the assignment, and may result in failing the subject or worse

All assignments must be A4 papers and bound firmly in the Project Report Cover clearly stated proper identification
