Question Description

I’m working on a Management question and need guidance to help me study.

  1. Study the data flows and data stored in these diagrams and decide whether you agree with the team’s conclusion that the only six entity types needed are listed in the case and in. If you disagree, define additional entity types, explain why they are necessary, and modify accordingly.
  2. 7-49. Again, review the DFDs you developed for the Petrie’s Electronics case (or those given to you by your instructor). Use these DFDs to identify the attributes of each of the six entities listed in this case plus any additional entities identified in your answer to Case Question 7-48. Write an unambiguous definition for each attribute. Then, redraw by placing the six (and additional) entities in this case on the diagram along with their associated attributes.

Week 4 Course Project Questions Course: Designator: MGMT340 Student Name: Date: Objective 5: Given a case study, develop a conceptual and physical model of the information process using the entity relationship (E-R) diagram. Objective 6: Given alternative solutions to a problem, develop evaluation criteria in the form of a ranking system to determine and recommend the most appropriate solution(s)—these may include scaling down the project scope and requirements, modifying the project requirements, or sub-contracting the project. Assignment Question 7-49. Write an unambiguous definition for each attribute. Then, redraw Figure 7-1 by placing the six (and additional) entities in this case on the diagram along with their associated attributes.

Answer does indicate an adequate definition for one of the attributes of each of the six entities on the PE Figure 7-1. Answer does indicate an adequate definition for at minimum two of the attributes of each of the six entities on the PE Figure 7-1. However, the ERD was not redrawn.

Comments & Feedback Running Head: SDLC PHASE 2 PACKAGE PART SDLC phase 2 package part Herrisha Morris DeVry University 1 SDLC PHASE 2 PACKAGE PART 2 SDLC phase 2 package part To create the ultimate solution for the company, it is essential to gather information from diverse sources. In this context, the primary source of information for Jim is from the stakeholders. The stakeholders form the ultimate foundation for the operations and success of a company. For instance, some of the most common and vital stakeholders for Jim include consumers, management and the other employees. In this context, Jim needed to collect critical information which would help in the creation of a solution that meets the needs of the consumers and achieves a competitive advantage. The primary reason for the selection of this source is that the main focus for Jim is the consumer. The collection of feedback and opinions from the consumers would help Jim to create a solution which is customer-centric and hence achieve the desired level of competitive advantage in the market. Jim used a marketing team that had the responsibility of gathering information from the consumers. Also, Jim created a set of loyalty programs which helped him in collecting vital and a lot of data from the target consumers to achieve better outcomes and insight into the best approaches to take to succeed. Through interviews and study of the success factors of the other companies, Jim gathered meaningful information would help him to achieve the desired results (Hsu, 2019). The following figure represents the customer activity recording process data flow diagram. A data flow diagram helps in the graphical representation of the logical movement of information from one end of the system to the other (Xiong, Zhang, Dong, Meng & Zhao, 2017). This section creates a level 1 data flow diagram of the record consumer activity process to show the various entities and storage of the associated data. Further, this section decomposes the process into smaller units or tasks which facilitate the recording of consumer activities in the system. SDLC PHASE 2 PACKAGE PART Figure 1.

PE TABLE 5-1: Requirements and Constraints for Petrie’s Customer Loyalty Project Requirements Effective customer incentives—System should be able to effectively store customer activity and convert to rewards and other incentives Easy for customers to use—Interface should be intuitive for customer use Proven performance—System as proposed should have been used successfully by other clients Easy to implement—Implementation should not require outside consultants or extraordinary skills on the part of our staff or require specialized hardware Scalable—System should be easily expandable as the number of participating customers grows Vendor support—Vendor should have proven track record of reliable support and infrastructure in place to provide it Constraints Cost to buy—Licenses for one year should be under $500,000 Cost to operate—Total operating costs should be no more than $1 million per year Time to implement—Duration of implementation should not exceed three months Staff to implement—Implementation should be successful with the staff we have and with the skills they already possess PE TABLE 5-2: Alternatives for Petrie’s Customer Loyalty Project Alternative A Data warehousing–centered system designed and licensed by Standard Basic Systems, Inc. (SBSI). The data warehousing tools at the heart of the system were designed and developed by SBSI, and work with standard relational database management systems (DBMSs) and relational/object-oriented (OO) hybrid DBMSs. The SBSI tools and approach have been used for many years and are well known in the industry, but SBSI-certified staff are essential for implementation, operation, and maintenance. The license is relatively expensive. The customer loyalty application using the SBSI data warehousing tools is an established application, used by many retail businesses in other industries. Alternative B Customer relationship management (CRM)–centered system designed and licensed by XRA Corporation. XRA is a pioneer in CRM systems, so its CRM is widely recognized as an industry leader. The system includes tools that support customer loyalty programs. The CRM system itself is large and complex, but pricing in this proposal is based only on modules used for the customer loyalty application. Alternative C Proprietary system designed and licensed by Nova Innovation Group, Inc. The system is relatively new and leading edge, so it has only been implemented in a few sites. The vendor is truly innovative but small and inexperienced. The customer interface, designed for a standard Web browser, is stunning in its design and is extremely easy for customers to use to check on their loyalty program status. The software runs remotely, in the “cloud,” and data related to the customer loyalty program would be stored in the cloud too. 6-2 Structuring Systems Requirements: Process Modeling Jim and Sanjay chatted in Jim’s office while they waited for Sally to arrive. “Good work on researching those alternatives,” Jim said. “Thanks,” replied Sanjay. “There are a lot of alternatives out there. I think we found the best three, considering what we are able to pay.” Just then Sally walked in. “Sorry I’m late. Things are getting really busy in marketing right now. I’ve been putting out fires all morning.” Sally sat down at the table across from Jim. “I understand,” Jim said. “But to stay on schedule, we need to start focusing on the specifics of what we want our system to do. Remember when you wanted more details on what the system would do? Well, now we start to spend some serious energy on getting that done.” “Awesome,” replied Sally, as she pulled a Red Bull out of her oversized bag and popped it open. “I’ve got a list here of four core functions the system must perform,” said Sanjay, pulling copies of a list from a folder on the table (PE Table 6-1). “Let’s look at these.” After reviewing the list Sanjay had given them, Jim said, “Nice job, Sanjay. But we need to put this in graphical format, so that everyone can see what the inputs and outputs are for each function and how they are related to each other. We also need to see how the new system fits in with our existing data sources. We need . . .” “Some data-flow diagrams,” Sanjay interrupted. “Exactly,” said Jim. “They are already done,” replied Sanjay, handing diagrams to both Jim and Sally. “I’ve already created a first draft of the context diagram [PE Figure 6-1] and a level-1 diagram [PE Figure 6-2]. You can see how I’ve defined the boundaries of our system, and I’ve included our existing product and marketing databases.” “What can I say?” Jim said. “Again, a nice job on your part. These diagrams are both good places for us to start. Let’s get copies of all of this to the team.” “I’ll be right back,” Sally said, standing up. “I need to get some coffee ...
