you will create a project
using the requirements outlined below. You may use your own place of business
(preferred) or an existing business that will allow you to perform these
exercises. Answers such as “Yes” or “No” are not sufficient to respond to these questions. This project should be supported by both the
textbook and peer reviewed research that addresses relevant systems analysis
and design. Scholarly research should
exist performed within the last few years that develop timely and appropriate
procedures for an information systems analysis and design. In addition, your project should follow the
general steps you learned within the textbook and your mini case assigments. This includes appropriate business
requirements methods, appropriate systems analysis and associated diagrams, and
appropriate systems design and associated diagrams.
Final Project Requirements
following is mandatory:
formatted paper using the appropriate margins, double-spacing, appendixes for
the diagrams, and a references page
4-5 double-spaced APA formatted pages excluding title, table of contents, systems
analysis and design diagrams/appendixes, and reference pages
peer reviewed references with appropriate systems analysis and design
supporting processes, procedures, and diagrams
supporting frameworks and models
breakdown structure that details the project
different types of information systems analysis diagrams that use appropriate
types of design diagrams
an entire SDLC process that will bring added value to a business.
the project—what is it supposed to do?
the methodology to be used; describe, in detail, why you chose this methodology
business requirements and describe the techniques you will use to gather this
the Project work plan, complete with (projected) timelines using a Gantt chart. Use best estimations on the completion of
how this project will bring added value to the business. This should be in the
form of an actual presentation outline, such as one would read while doing a
Power Point presentation to the Board
Determine who the key players are
Describe any known or possible issues that
might arise as to why the project will not be approved
with the outline, justify, support, and develop a minimum of 5 different
and unique analysis diagrams that use appropriate UML syntax. In other words, 5 diagrams of the same
type is insufficient to show the entire analysis process. Select 5 different diagrams from the
Use cases and use case descriptions
CRC cards with your use cases
Entity relationship diagrams for any
State machine diagrams
the hardware and software requirements
Will the existing infrastructure support
not, describe in detail what will be needed.
Is new hardware required?
Is new software required?
new software is required, how will it be obtained?
the existing database adequate?
your information system with a minimum of 2 diagrams and/or graphical
user interfaces. You can choose from the
A front-end UI proto-type (the back-end
code is not necessary)
can use a web language to design the web front-end
can use a VB, C#, Java, or alternative programming IDE to design your front-end,
the code is unnecessary, only the UI design
can use Adobe Photoshop or a similar front-end design application
Infrastructure diagram / hardware / data
center / network model
can use Visio or a similar application for designs that involve networks or
systems, for example
how the system is to be implemented; Phased? Turn key? Mirrored? Parallel?
why the implementation you chose is the best for this project.
