Unformatted text preview: DESIGN PHASE
This is the design phase of the recruitment and admissions project. In this phase, details
of the system will be discussed through the alternative matrix, architecture report, and user
interface. The alternative matrix will thoroughly explain technical, economic, and organizational
issues of the system as well as provide an evaluation of relative importance for each through a
weighted score. To provide system specification, the architecture report will explain operational,
performance, security, and cultural/political requirements of the system. The user-interface will
provide a storyboard and prototype of the system and its processes.
Relative Importance (Weight) Alt 1: Recruitment Performance Measure Score (1-‐5)* Wtd Score 15 System will develop more hands-‐on skills; will improve performance 3 45 Integration with existing system 20 5 100 Experience with product 15 Data can be transferred from existing system SAAADMS for evaluating Surveys that measure the same thing exist; system will take the place of surveys by combining them in one database for interaction with the user 2 30 Evaluation Criteria TECHNICAL ISSUES: Develops desirable in-‐house skills ECONOMIC ISSUES: Cost ORGANIZATIONL ISSUES: Demonstrated product in market 30 $500-‐10,000 could incur maintenance costs 1 30 Alt 2 Admissions and Enrollment Blog Score (1-‐5)* Wtd Score Utilizes the World-‐
