ASSIGNMENT

Objective

This coursework is designed to demonstrate the broad understanding knowledge of the module, assessing and evaluating the strength and level of analysis of student, divided into four learning outcomes, the coursework should be submitted as one document in a report format.

Scenario:

A College in London wants you to develop a library management software with the use of a database at its backend. You can develop either a desktop application or web-based application. 

Some additional information is. 

  • The books can be lent only to students, lectures, or any other internal members of the college.
  • The library will contain books for only business, health care and computing departments.
  • The library can lend maximum 5 books.
  • The library will allow the books to be lend maximum up to 5 weeks, after that the borrowers will have to pay a fine of 0.50 p/ day.
  • The library will charge the whole cost of the book, if it gets damaged or lost by the borrowers.

Functional Requirement are given below:

  • System must have a login system i.e. when run the application, it should ask admin to enter username and password.
  • System should be able to register new member of the library.
  • System should be able to remove any member of the library.
  • System should be able to view the detail of the books and its location in the library.
  • System should be able to view the members details.
  • System should be able to keep track of the lending process.
  • System should be able to keep track of the return process.

LO1

In relation to the above Business requirement, identify its business-related problem by highlighting and preparing a well-defined problem definition statement. Describe the issues that need to be addressed along with possible solutions supported by a set of user and system requirements. Since every project is often related with many risks in achieving its success, therefore you need to identify the areas of risk related to the successful completion of your application. To start with the actual development, you need to analyse the business-related problem of the case study using appropriate methods and produce a well-structured Software Design Document that defines a proposed solution and includes relevant details on requirements, system analysis, system design, coding, testing and implementation. 

LO2

As we know that the ultimate objective of software engineering is to produce good quality maintainable software within reasonable time frame and at an affordable cost, therefore you need to carry out research on the use of different software development tools and techniques/ methodologies and present with comparison on various software development tools and techniques. Once you have reviewed, you need to justify on the one which you have selected for the development of your application. It is important to get reviews on your business application plan in order to achieve the desired business objectives and therefore, you are required to create a formal presentation that effectively reviews your business application, problem definition statement, and proposed solution and development strategy.

Once you have reviewed, you need to justify on the one which you have selected for the development of your application.

LO3

You are now required to present this plan to your other colleagues by preparing a power-point presentation as part of a peer-review and document any feedback given by your peers. After getting the peer review from your colleagues, you are now required to develop a fully functional business application based on a specified business problem given in the case study above. You need to interpret your peer-review feedback and identify changes/ addition in your report, that you will make on you design or development, which was not previously considered by you. Make sure that your interpretation also covers with arguments on the potential improvements carried out by you to your system.

LO4

Once you have fully developed the required application, you are now to make critical review on the performance and development of your application. For this, you need to review the performance of your business application against the Problem Definition Statement and initial requirements. There are key factors that can negatively impact the performance of the software application, therefore you need to analyse the factors that influence the performance of your business application and use them to undertake a critical review of the design, development and testing stages of your application and conclude your review by reflectively discussing your previously identified risks. As a part of the final holistic evaluation of your project, you need to cover on the strengths and weaknesses of your business application and justify opportunities for improvement and further development.

Appendices

Note: You should attach all the supporting documents as a separate file in the appendix section of your assignment. Without appropriate evidence(s) your assignment will not be marked.

  • Presentation slide
  • Written code, etc.
