Process Flowcharts Process flowcharts detail the exact mechanics of the system within the organisation. The more problems or potential problems you can identify the more scope you will have to exploit the features of Access.
This needs to be clearly laid out in a logical order, stating who will be involved in a particular stage of testing and a broad description of what is being tested and how.
Show evidence from testing and how it relates to the evaluation criteria. Describe how the current system operates with the aid of data flow diagrams and process flowcharts. The information gathered here will be used later on in the project.
Data capture methods and procedures Validation and verification Data Processing Output required including format The user interface Navigation around the system MIS issues Security issues Data backup issues Archiving Training needs Integrating the two systems 2.
List the deliverables, with the dates when they will be delivered. A three-step approach is recommended: Terminology You should describe all the requirements in detail, using the following ICT terminology wherever possible: The designs do not need to be works of art but should contain enough detail and information to allow your client to understand and for a 3rd party to implement the design as you intended.
The information gathered here will be used later on in the project. What people and departments are involved. At present these orders are recorded manually on a carbon pad and then passed on to the warehouse for processing.
Under no circumstances take on a project that is too big or too small without consulting your teacher. You need to justify the use of the new software solution by comparing it with at least two other packages.

Evidence of functional or unit tests, for example for validation or for the backing up of one file, is not required. What will they show, how will they be launched. This is a more detailed plan than the one included earlier in your work. Terminology You should describe all the requirements in detail, using the following ICT terminology wherever possible: Think about evaluating against client requirements and the original problem.
Design and planning for implementation This section is intended to show off your ability to design and document effective solutions using your capacity to think creatively and innovatively, and to select appropriate solutions.

This needs to be clearly laid out in a logical order, stating who will be involved in a particular stage of testing and a broad description of what is being tested and how. Milestone Dates Write your dates Background and investigation Analysis and deliverables Design and planning for implementation Testing and documentation of implementation Evaluation of the implemented solution The Project Report [pic] Figure 1.
This might include, for example holding details about customers, products and orders or calculating the value of invoices. This part of your paperwork is VERY important, as you will need to refer back to it often in your analysis, design, testing and evaluation. If an item has run out of stock they will only find out when the warehouse has attempted to process the order.
The transcript of the actual interview or questionnaire will be included in your appendices. You need to think about whether any security awareness training is needed etc. Objectives should be numbered so that you can easily refer back to them e.

Make sure that the client and users are clearly identified. What will they show, how will they be launched.
Specific qualitative objectives Prepare a numbered list of your qualitative objectives. Use the original documents order forms, invoices, receipts etc. How would you improve your performance on a similar project in the future?.
