We've worked to understand the problem, and to make some decisions about how we'll solve it. Now it's time to get down to the fun details and design this thing, then work out how to actually put all the pieces into place! 
  1. Identify and describe: 
    • The kinds of information technology that will be needed for your Ruse 2013 project. Don't forget to include both the software and hardware required. And be as specific as possible - include version or model numbers wherever appropriate. 
    • The data/information that will be be used in your system, using a table to provide the name, type and description of each piece of relevant data/information. 
    • The most important information processes that will take place in the daily operations of your system (you should have at least 4). Use dataflow diagrams or system flowcharts (or both).

  2. Construct screen designs and physical layouts for the information technology that you will introduce.

  3. Construct and fill out the following table on the basis of our class discussion. In the "Method" column, describe the conversion method verbally and visually.

    Method
    Advantages
    Disadvantages
    Direct
      
    Parallel
      
    Phased
      
    Pilot
      

  4. Using the supplied worksheet, identify and justify a suitable method of converting the old system to the new system for each scenario. Use a combination of methods where appropriate.

  5. Provide a detailed description of the conversion process(es) that you would use for your Ruse 2013 project, and justify your selection of method.
