MIS300 – Systems Analysis & Design | My Assignment Tutor

MIS300_Assessment_2_Brief_Report_Module Due 6.1 Page 1 of 8Task SummaryFor this assignment, students will need to individually write a 1500-word business report in responseto the provided case study. There are two components:1. Conceptual questions about user interface design (UI) within the systems analysis and designprocess.2. Practical questions in response to the provided case study: MIS300 Assessment Case Study.Please refer to the Task Instructions for details on how to complete this task.ContextWhile useability and human computer interaction have always been important, rapid growth ofdigital transformation has made user experience (UX) and user interface design (UI) central to thesuccessful adoption of systems. In this section, you will focus on ensuring that the requirements fordesigning and building an excellent user interface are captured and documented.This is a continuation of the analysis and design process that was initiated in Assessment 1 withrequirements analysis and continued with process and data modelling in Assessment 2. You will usethe same case study.

Carefully review the attached MIS300_ Assessment _Case Study.2. Review your subject notes, essential readings and learning activities to ensure that you arewell prepared for the assignment.3. Create a report plan and identify all the key components that will be required in your report.4. Follow the report structure:Note: The report is brief and therefore will not require an executive summary or abstract.Title page: should include subject ID, subject name, assignment title, student’s name,student number and lecturer’s nameTable of contents: include all key components of this assessmentIntroduction (75–100 words): This serves as your statement of purpose. You will tell thereader what you are going to cover in your report. You will need to inform the reader about:• your area of research and its context• the key concepts you will be addressing• what the reader can expect to find in the body of the report.Body of the report (800–850 words):Conceptual questions:• What is user interface design and what is its purpose?• What is ‘usability’ and why is it important in user interface design?• Why should user needs be considered when designing or modifying systems?• What is the difference between UX and UI?• Discuss the concepts of consistency and discoverability in the context of userinterface design. Why are these concepts important to the success of the design?Practical tasks:• Select one of the use cases that you created and documented in Assessment 1.• Create a system sequence diagram for the use case identifying the messages fromthe external actor into the system with all required data flows.• Using the system sequence diagram, complete a dialogue to outline the user systeminteraction.• Design a user input screen/s for the dialogue.Layout:• The report should use Arial or Calibri 11-point font and should have 1.5 line spacingfor ease of reading. A page number should be inserted on the bottom of each page.• With the required diagrams, due attention should be given to pagination to avoidloss of meaning and continuity by unnecessarily splitting information over twopages. Diagrams must carry the appropriate captioning.Conclusion (75–100 words): summarise any findings or recommendations that the reportputs forward regarding the concepts covered in the report.MIS300_Assessment_2_Brief_Report_Module Due 6.1 Page 3 of 8ReferencingIt is essential that you use appropriate APA 6 style for citing and referencing research sources.
