Question description

Continuing to work on the Parts USA project you submitted in Week 3, you have now been asked to develop a plan to explain the security that you recommend for PUSA’s MIS and its data as well as explain how information from the PUSA MIS can improve the decision-making process within PUSA and by its customers.

Part 1 - You will recommend the security structure for the management information system (MIS) and data, and study the possibility of achieving operational excellence and e-commerce.

  • Develop a plan to recommend the security structure for the MIS and data at PUSA. Discuss at least the following points:

    • How will you physically secure the system?

    • How will you control who has access to which data?

    • What steps will you take to guard against intrusion into the system from either inside (employees or business partners) or outside sources (hackers, etc.)?

    • What provisions will you make for data backup and possible recovery?

    • Discuss where backup data will be stored, how frequently backups will be made, and how you will test the recovery procedures.
    • Develop an additional plan for achieving operational excellence by exploring the possibility of integrating the PUSA MIS into a true ERP system.

    • Discuss the possibility of expanding PUSA’s market into new areas via 
      e-commerce.

 Part 2 - You will research and prepare a write-up explaining how information from the MIS can improve the decision-making process in PUSA as well as its customers.

  • Provide a write-up to explain the importance of knowledge for PUSA, enterprise-wide knowledge benefits of the MIS at PUSA.

  • Explain with at least three examples how such knowledge can support decision making at all levels (upper management, middle management, and factory floor) of PUSA.

  • Explain how information from PUSA MIS can improve the decision-making process within PUSA and its customers.

Part 3 - You will need to finalize the MIS design for PUSA.

Finalize the PUSA project by adding a cover page, an executive summary, an introduction, and combine your work for this week and the Week 3 PUSA assignment into a coherent , well-organized document. Close with a summary/recommendations, and present the project plan as Appendix A. Use the example PUSA project by clicking the link below:
