IT 510 Final Project Guidelines and Rubric Overview The final project for this course is the creation of a System Proposal Document. In any modern enterprise, it is crucial that all of the different stakeholders, users, inputs, and outputs that relate to the business’s IT systems coalesce in a logical and cohesive way for the systems to be effective. As a member of an IT team, your overarching goal is to ensure that the IT systems ultimately do what the business needs them to do. In this course, you have learned about the key principles and practices underlying the analysis, design, implementation, and management of IT systems. In this final project, you will apply this knowledge by creating a systems proposal document. The project is divided into four milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Module Two, Module Four, Module Six, and Module Eight. The final submission will occur in Module Nine. In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:  Assess the relationship of systems analysis, design, implementation, and development processes as they relate to the management of information technology systems  Communicate the paradigms, processes, and activities of systems development to diverse audiences  Apply structure and object oriented analysis modeling techniques to analyze, design, and manage information technology systems  Construct written and visual representations of the analysis, design, implementation, and management of information technology systems based on the systems development life cycle Prompt You will select your own case study and will apply the content provided, describing the business process to complete the final project. Alternate sources for case studies include the case studies found in the textbook with the exception of the Personal Trainer Case. You can additionally search the internet for business case ideas. You will complete an analysis of an existing information technology system and make recommendations for updates to meet business goals based on your chosen case study. Your final submission will include an introduction, systems requirements, systems design specifications, and an implementation plan. All of the components listed below should be submitted as a single, organized systems proposal document and include screenshots of all relevant diagrams, charts, and tables. I.

Be sure to include screenshots of all relevant diagrams, charts, and tables. a) Specifications: Provide a physical design that will meet the specifications outlined in the systems requirement document. b) Data Design: Create entity relationship diagrams that accurately describe the proposed solution, including 3NF table designs. c) User Interface Design: Illustrate the user interface design. Specifically, be sure to address your proposed human computer interactions (HCIs) and graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Your proposals should follow user-centered design principles and address all design requirements. d) System Architecture: Describe the system architecture. Specifically, be sure to address the corporate organization and culture, enterprise resource planning, total cost of ownership, scalability, integration and interface requirements, and security. e) Feasibility Analysis: Provide supporting details that justify why your proposed solution is appropriate for solving the problem. In your defense, be sure to address operational, technical, economic, and scheduling feasibility. Be sure that you frame your response for communicating effectively to your target audiences. IV. Project Plan: Illustrate your recommended implementation and management strategies. Be sure to include screenshots of all relevant diagrams, charts, and tables. a) Work Breakdown Structure: Describe all of the essential roles and functions required for implementing the solution. Who will be doing the work and what, specifically, will they need to do? b) Project Monitoring and Control Plan: How are you going to ensure that the project is going smoothly? What is your plan of attack to ensure that all controls are adhered to? What is the defined critical path? Be sure that you frame your response for communicating effectively to your target audiences. c) Timeline: What is the estimated amount of time for implementation? Create a visual representation that captures your timeline (e.g., Gantt chart) based on the systems development life cycle. Milestones Milestone One: Business Case Proposal and Introduction In Module Two, you will submit a business case proposal, which is a summary of your selected business case for the course project. The business case proposal will be submitted as a Word document and in paragraph form.
