BN314 System Architecture Page 2 of 7Prepared by: Dr Tayab Din Memon Moderated by: Dr. Tony Jan November, 2020Assignment Description:The purpose of this assignment is to encourage students to do research, design, and developBusiness Information System and its modeling approaches. This assignment is divided in two partsi.e., Part A and Part B. Details are given below.PART A (Formative): Literature Review on system development methods (Structure Analysis,Agile, and Object Oriented) in relation to the Business Information System [30 Marks]Q -1:1) In Business Information System, Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems providecost-effective support for users and managers throughout the company. You as asystem analyst has a vital role it. Your job is to plan, develop, and maintains informationsystems along with conducts meetings, delivers presentations, and writes memos,reports, and documentation for appropriate results. In this regards, answer thefollowing.a. Do a literature review; identify a suitable application of Business InformationSystem in which any one or all system development methods (i.e., StructureAnalysis, Agile, and/or Object Oriented) are applied. You need to write acomprehensive report that should demonstrate how this system hasenormously make difference in the performance, productivity, and otheradvantages over the time. While writing report, it should include introduction,methodology, block diagram, outcome and conclusion.[Hint: You must choose at least one peer reviewed journal/conference paperpreferable IEEE while identifying this application and then answer based on costvs-performance]BN314 System Architecture Page 3 of 7Prepared by: Dr Tayab Din Memon Moderated by: Dr. Tony Jan November, 2020PART B – Research, analyse and propose a Network Equipment Inventory Information System[70 Marks]Q-2: Assignment descriptionThe aim of Network Equipment Inventory Information System is to provide the networkoperators/engineers with the up-to-date information of the network equipment on the geometric locations and detailed configurations of all devices. The users with different interfacesshould access the system. The below specifications will provide as a guideline to break downthe assignment report into different parts. Read through the guidelines to get an understandingon how the report should be prepared.Areas to be addressed in the report Proper use of pictures and associated text for the architecture/data-flow model and usecaseAn appropriate sequence diagramSystem test plans to ensure proper user interactions and system functionsFiguring out appropriate cloud architecture required for the system implementation(SaaS, PaaS, IaaS)Address the system functionality with appropriate test plansImplementing appropriate work practices to ensure proper implementation andmaintenance of the system Report DeliverablesIn this regards, the answers should be provided with following subsequent sections.Section 1: Architecture of the SystemA rough architecture of the system, showing the subsystems and over-all data-flow, and thedivision between hardware, software, and people in the system.Section 2: Conceptual design of user interfaceConceptual design of the various user interfaces (sound/visual, mobile/local)The user interface design should focus of the types of interface to be used with the range ofdevices. You may make use of the information from principles of user interface design toelaborate your answers.Section 3: Sequence diagramDraw a sequence diagram for the interaction between the user and system with the exampleof updating the network configuration of a router.Section 4: System Test PlansBN314 System Architecture Page 4 of 7Prepared by: Dr Tayab Din Memon Moderated by: Dr. Tony Jan November, 2020Provide details on the usability and functional testing (as a part of system plans) to check theaccuracy plans to check if the system meets the requirementsSection 5: Cloud based ArchitectureWhat would be demands of the system in terms of software, platform and infrastructure? Applythe cloud architecture solution towards the requirements of the same in terms of SaaS, PaaSand IaaS.Section 6: Functional SolutionsImplements appropriate test plans to address the expected system functionality (functionalsolutions). Implement the test plan based on how the user interacts with the software. Discusson the reaction and responses. The use case and user interface specification will act as aguideline through this step.Section 7: System Processes and Work PracticesWhat are the work practices implemented by the business to ensure successful implementationof the system processes.BN314 System Architecture Page 5 of 7Prepared by: Dr Tayab Din Memon Moderated by: Dr. Tony Jan November, 2020Marking Criteria Part A CriterionDescriptionMarksQ-1Correctly identify the application and add all sections appropriatelyincluding: Introduction, Methodology, Block Diagram, Outcome,and Conclusion20ReferencingIn-text referencing & Reference list in IEEE format5ReportFormattingReport layout, structure, and grammar5Total Marks30 Marking Criteria Part B SectionsDescriptionMarksFeedbackIn this section you need to state how you addressed the feedbackcomments for Part A and reflected on Part B5Section 1Architecture – subsystems, hardware, software and users10Section 2Conceptual User Interface Design5Section 3Sequence Diagram10Section 4System Test Plans10Section 5Cloud based Architecture5Section 6Functional Solutions5Section 7System Processes and Work Practices10ReferencingList of references using IEEE referencing style5ReportFormattingReport layout, structure, and grammar5Total Marks70 BN314 System Architecture Page 6 of 7Prepared by: Dr Tayab Din Memon Moderated by: Dr. Tony Jan November, 2020Marking Rubric SectionsExcellentGoodFairPoorPart ALiteratureReviewandreport onitAll the points arepertinent, covered inbrief, and providegood summary of theliterature andactivity performed inthe assessment.Mostly points arepertinent, coveredin brief, andprovide goodsummary of theliterature andactivity performedin the assessment.Many points arepertinent, coveredin brief, andprovide summaryof the literatureand activityperformed in theassessment.Few points arepertinent,covered in brief,and provideoutline of theliterature andactivityperformed in theassessment.Section 1The design haspresented thesubsystems, data flowand the hardwaresoftwarespecificationsDesign withidentifiedsubsystems and dataflow but withminimumspecification onhardware andsoftwareDesign withidentifiedsubsystems butmissing details onthe data flow andhardwaresoftwarespecificationsNot anappropriatedesign.
