Capstone Project

Capstone Project

Project description
Course Project

Your project must describe an initiative that goes beyond a single organizational function

do not chose a
component of a functional IS as your project.
You must be able to create a model of a business process that you
project will enable, and you must be
able to perform the analysis of the improvements beyond ROI, TCO, etc. You should be able to
demonstrate where, exactly, in a business process improvements are going to manifest, and in what
form (cost cutting, revenue
generation, decrease completion time, etc.).
Following are the specific points to keep in mind when selecting the project:
1. Your project must be large in scope

a basic BPA, or BPI

type of initiatives will not do.
2. Your project must be strategically im

you cannot just say “I’ll do network modification”, or “I’ll
write about an application that automates a data entry task”.
3. You must be able to analyze & model the business process that your project aims to improve (all IT
interventions support
IS, which, in turn, enables a business process).
4. You must be able to show the fit between your technology/IS and the business.
5. You must be able to perform the analysis of the business process that will be impacted by your

where the gains wil
l come from, and in what form.
6. You should have access to the relevant data

every # you will input on your spreadsheet will be met
with “Why? How did you get this number?” question from the instructor.
7. You must be able to demonstrate the business nee
d for your undertaking.
Following are some of the steps that you should follow in preparing your project:
First, you need to be able to describe the business of interest.
Once you did so, you need to be able to identify one of the core business processes
of that

the process that is aligned with the business strategy, the one that is customer facing,
and the one that makes money by selling products or services.
Then you need to model the process

you could use DFD of UCD to do so. You MUST
plain where in the process inefficiencies exist

you could do activity costing or duration
analysis to do provide evidence.
Then you should propose your solution to improving the process

you should demonstrate how
your initiative will improve the process,
and, as a result, will increase revenues/decrease costs.
Then you need to prepare your system request, where you summarize the business
need/opportunity, tangible, intangible benefits, constraints, and so on

standard stuff.
Then you should go ahead with
the logical design of a new, “to

be” process. After that you will
do ROI, TCO, BEP, and so on

parts of feasibility analysis.
At the end you will end up with the logical model of the system you plan to implement

could use traditional modeling (ERD, DF
D, etc.), or you could use OO approach (class diagram,
UCD, interaction d., state transition d., and so on).
