Title: Foundation Degree IT Project


1
Foundation Degree IT Project
  • Milestone 2 Research and Analysis

2
Objectives
  • Describe what background research is
  • Describe what implementation specific research is
    in terms of
  • What methodologies are and how they affect the
    project
  • Technologies
  • Describe analysis
  • Describe project requirements in terms of both
  • Functional requirements
  • Non-functional requirements
  • Describe development models

3
Background research
  • Relates to the project area
  • Web design
  • Networking
  • Multimedia
  • Education
  • Business processes
  • You need to look at your project area and comment
    on some of the most important themes or topics
    that affect that area
  • Can be very difficult as each project area
    probably has many topics

4
Background research
  • You can look at this from your own perspective
    relating to your experience in the work
    environment
  • What data comes into their area?
  • How is it processed?
  • What data leaves?
  • How do they fit into the rest of the
    organisation?
  • Try to document issues that are likely to affect
    your project in some way
  • For example web design
  • Using the web as a delivery platform
  • Accessibility/usability
  • Interaction issues
  • For most projects you ought to consider what good
    practices there are relating to your fields
  • You DO NOT need to document background
    information relating to the company in this
    section

5
Implementation specific research - Methodologies
  • "the analysis of the principles of methods,
    rules, and postulates employed by a discipline"
  • "the systematic study of methods that are, can
    be, or have been applied within a discipline" or
  • "a particular procedure or set of procedures."
  • Reference Wikipedia
  • Research approximately 3 methodologies that you
    deem useful to your project
  • Choose one and justify your choice
  • You can then apply this methodology to your
    project by carrying out its activities
  • The Gantt chart should show evidence of the
    methodology stages

6
Implementation specific research - Technologies
  • Software
  • Development environments
  • Programming languages
  • Operating systems/Servers
  • Database management systems
  • Hardware
  • Network equipment
  • Server hardware
  • Machine specification
  • Other issues
  • HCI
  • Security
  • Web hosting
  • Look into how the features of technologies are
    most suitable/relevant to your project

7
Analysis
  • It must be clear why your chosen methodology is
    appropriate to the project
  • Contrast the advantages and disadvantages of
    methodologies
  • What process did you use to make your choice?
  • If done correctly this should aid in project
    management
  • Once a choice is made you need to go deeper into
    the methodology, make sure you understand the
    various stages and then follow them
  • Describe the application of the chosen analysis
    method, indicating problems arising and how they
    were overcome
  • Your project planning (Gantt charts) should be
    amended to account for the various stages

8
Analysis
  • When analysing the system think about
  • Where does data come from?
  • How does it enter the system?
  • How is it processed within the system?
  • What happens to the data after processing?
  • Does it leave the system? If so how?
  • Is it retained indefinitely?

9
Analysis models
  • DFDs and supporting descriptions
  • E-R diagrams
  • Use cases
  • Business models
  • Other appropriate modelling techniques
  • Be sure to look into the techniques described in
    your chosen methodology!
  • Make use of appendices where possible and refer
    to then in the body of the report if you are
    running out of your word count currency

10
Project requirements
  • The analysis should derive the requirements for
    the project
  • Once the analysis is complete you should be in a
    position to develop a detailed list of
    requirements of the new system or solution
  • You can look at similar systems to see how they
    achieve their objectives for comparison
  • Functional requirements
  • What a system is supposed to accomplish i.e.
    functions
  • This is defined by
  • Technical details, calculations, data
    manipulation, processing
  • Non-functional requirements
  • Criteria that specify the operation of a system,
    NOT the behaviour or function
  • Performance
  • Security
  • Reliability

11
Summary
  • Background research
  • Should relate to your project
  • Implementation specific research
  • Methodologies, software, hardware, other
    resources
  • Analysis
  • Use your chosen methodology in order to analyse
    your project and define requirements
  • Requirements
  • Functional What the system is supposed to do
  • Non-functional How the system is supposed to be
  • Development models
  • Graphical representations of the current system
  • Using something like RAD is NOT an excuse for not
    performing analysis and design!!

Questions...
  • ...are there any?
