Modeling Business Operation Project
Your initial task is to identify an organization or company for whom you want to do the project (get their input and permission as they will need to play some role in the development of the system). If you cannot connect with a business or organization, you can create a system for a fictitious business. Whichever route you choose, make sure that you think about all the ramifications of the new system on the business.
I was thinking on this. Perhaps a mock-up of something like a doctors office looking to switch from paper documentation to a database to keep track of patients, files, medications, and such would be a good base to start on, if you have any other ideas,
Here are some ideas for systems you might develop:
- a database
- a network
- a web site
- a VoIP system
- pretty much any new technology solution (inventory control, CRM, ERP system, etc.)
Deliverables for the first milestone (what you will be turning in):
- A document containing the following information.
- The name of the business or organization you will be working with.
- A business profile for the organization you will be working with. See page 9 in your text for info about what should be included in a business profile.
- An organizational chart that models the personnel employed by the business.
- A completed systems request form. If you are working with a fictional company, fill in details that seem appropriate and that you would expect to see on this document from a real organization. Here is an example that you may use if you like: Systems Request Form
- A SWOT analysis that focuses on either the company itself or the proposed project. More info can be found on pages 45-47 in your text.
- A business case for moving forward with the project. Your text covers information that might be included in the business case on pages 47-48.
- A couple of paragraphs detailing what you will be designing for the organization you have selected. This should be an overview of the project proposal; it wouldn’t hurt to begin think about and documenting broad technical details here.
