MEC_AMO_TEM_035_01 Page 3 of 12 RMDAPP (BUSS B 2012) – Fall - 2020 – CW 2(Assignment) – All Sessions – QP Introduction: This provides a description of the problem that will be addressed. The background information on the organization / client chosen for the project (if any) can be included. Details of specific department or functions, if required, can be provided. Also this includes the rationale for the project (why). Project aim: Describes what the project is all about e.g., “are you trying to build an application / website / framework etc.” Emphasize what is to be accomplished. Literature Review: Describes the existing system / any problem or issues faced by the organization / client, which requires this project to be undertaken. This must start with a background of selected topic, the relevant literature identified and give reviews of background reading. Students are expected to review/evaluate the literature in comparison with their project tasks. The literature review must include a clear statement of approach to be taken to solve the problem with reference to the background reading. Keep in mind the following questions. What kinds of research have been done before? What relevant kinds of studies or techniques need to be mastered to do your project? Where is the state of the art today? How have others gone about trying to solve problems you want to tackle, and in what ways will your approach build on and vary from previous work? Research questions: Well-thought-out and focused questions that identifies the phenomenon to be studied. Research objectives: Steps you are going to take to answer your research questions or a specific list of tasks needed to accomplish the aim of the project Research methodology: Select methodologies to answer the research questions. The reason for choosing the particular methodology must be justified properly. Need to mention regarding research design, sampling techniques, etc. Business Process Map : Business process map provides a pictorial representation of business process using standard symbols. The flow of information helps to understanding of the business process of the organization of selected operations / department / process through visual representations. A set of standard symbols are used for illustrations. Research Design : Research design begins with exploring research approaches followed by creating instruments for data collections such as survey questionnaire or using available organizational data. The next step will be collecting the data through questionnaire and analyze the data using various statistical techniques. Finally analyzed data needs to be studied and findings and conclusions to be drawn based on the analysis. References: All citations in the literature review section should be mentioned in bibliography, but not all in the bibliography is important enough to be mentioned in the literature review. In other words, this section is a comment on the most valuable material you have identified which you will need to assimilate to do your project.

Other cases If the student fails a module and has a proven case of academic integrity violation in this module, the student is required to re-register the module. This is applicable to first and second offenders of plagiarism. 1. Plagiarism A. First offence of plagiarism I. If a student is caught first time in an act of plagiarism during his/her course of study in any assignment other than project work, the student will be allowed to re-submit the assignment once, within a maximum period of one week. However, a penalty of deduction of 25% of the marks obtained for the resubmitted work will be imposed. II. Period of re-submission: The student will have to re-submit the work one week from the date he or she is advised to re-submit. III. If the re-submitted work is also found to be plagiarized, then that assessment will be awarded a zero mark. Re-submission of the work beyond the maximum period of one week will not be accepted and the assessment will be awarded a zero mark. B. Second offence of plagiarism If any student is caught second time in an act of plagiarism during his/her course of study (in a subsequent semester), the student will directly be awarded zero for the work in which plagiarism is detected. In such cases, the student will not be allowed to resubmit the work. A warning of suspension shall be issued, and student has to sign an undertaking and undergo counselling session in such cases. 2. Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion A. First offence of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion If a student is caught in an act of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion for an assessment component irrespective of coursework or end semester, the student shall fail the module and shall be required to re-register the module B. Second Offence of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion If a student is caught a second time in an act of Malpractice/Ghostwriting/Collusion for an assessment component irrespective of coursework or end semester, the student shall fail the module. A warning of suspension shall be issued, and student has to sign an undertaking and undergo counselling session in such cases. 3. Third Offence of Academic Integrity Violation MEC_AMO_TEM_035_01 Page 6 of 12 RMDAPP (BUSS B 2012) – Fall - 2020 – CW 2(Assignment) – All Sessions – QP If a student is caught a third time in an act of Academic Integrity Violation for an assessment component irrespective of coursework or end semester (in a subsequent semester), the student shall fail the module and also shall be suspended for one semester from the College, as recommended by institutional level academic committee, Chaired by the Associate Dean, Academic Affairs. 4.

The penalty that can be granted to a proven case of academic integrity violation which falls in this category of “other cases” can be a warning/component zero/ module fail/suspension/expulsion depending on the nature and gravity of the offence. 6. Types/Variations of Cases: I. II. III. IV.
