WBIT 3110, Summer 2016, Semester Group Project Purpose This group project is designed to introduce you and the members of your group to a practical application of the concepts of Systems Analysis and Design. Each group will be analyzing a case study business and then designing a solution for that business. Written communication skills are paramount in systems analysis/design work, and to that end, your group will use standard written documentation to present your findings. General Information As specified in the syllabus, this project represents 18% (or 180 points) of your overall course grade, so successful completion of this project is crucial to success in this class. Your grade will consist of: Your group’s submitted written documentation Your contribution to the group, as demonstrated by: o Written documentation submitted by you (each student will be responsible for a portion of the written documentation) o Evaluation by your peers to be done at the completion of the project.

WBIT 3110, Summer 2016, Semester Group Project There will be three groups, each consisting of six students. In order to facilitate communication between members of the group, I shall create Discussion topics for each group within D2L. Project Documentation Project documentation shall consist of answers to some of the questions in the textbook, many of which require not just answers to questions, but standard project documentation. Certain additional documentation in the form of diagrams, matrixes, and charts will be required, as well as some documentation I deem valuable that may not be in the text. Templates will be provided for some of the documentation, including the documentation from sources not in the text.
