References should not only provide definitions to the words used, but also validate your discussion in the paper.;Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.;Individual: Work-Related Project Analysis, Part III;Resources:Work-Related Project Analysis, Parts I and II;Note: Use the same project addressed in the Work-Related Project Analysis, Part II. Consider this as a follow-up, incorporating the transition from design to implementation for selected business system at the department or division level.;Write a 1,400- to 2,100-wordpaper describing the development and implementation stages for the situation specified in previous weeks. Include the following;? A discussion of major activities, i including coding, testing, installation, documentation, training, and support. Include specific descriptions of how each activity would be planned for the individual project. Provide reasonable assumptions where needed.;? A discussion of benefits of using defined and repeatable processes for accomplishing these activities for implementation;Include3 to 4 references relevant to the assignment, in addition to the assigned readings. These should relate to the best practices in the area being discussed this week. References should not only provide definitions to the words used, but also validate your discussion in the paper.;Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.;Learning Team: SDLC Final Project;Resource: University of Phoenix Material: SDLC Final Project located on the Course Materials page of your student website;Review the final project requirements.;Write a 4,200- to 5,600-word paper that applies the SDLC methodology and tools presented in the course. The primary goal is to apply workflow and process management concepts in addressing specific needs of a selected functional area. Assume both parts are presented to an executive management committee. The paper must reflect professional preparation.;Include, at minimum, the following elements in the paper;? Business objectives with supporting measures of project success;? Description of current business process or systems with identification of project scope and boundaries;? Any project constraints: financial, time, resources, organizational policies, or culture;? Business functional requirements;? Description of new business process or systems?use the process objectives model and the system objectives model;? Design requirements: input/output design, interface design, data model, network model;? Cost/benefit analysis;Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.;Create a 10- to 12- slide PowerPoint Presentation overview of your final project.;Include detailed speaker notes.;Submit the final paper and presentation.;Discussion Questions;Week One Discussion Questions;? Discuss one important element that must be completed in three of the SDLC phases. What happens if that element is missed or performed incorrectly?;? Describe at least two different approaches to a formal SDLC. What type of specific health care system would match well with each?;? Why is it important for an organization to have a formal SDLC?;Week Two Discussion Questions;? Why is defining the proper scope for a project so important? What are the dangers a project can face if the scope is not tied down?;? Discuss the approaches used by at least two methodologies to cover the scope, feasibility, and requirements generation portion of the SDLC. What are some strengths and weaknesses of each approach?;? What are some effects of using a database or other hardware or software resources for a project? How can a project best prepare to use outside resources effectively?;Week Three Discussion Questions;? Discuss three common constraints on the design specifications for health care systems. Why is each important and what effect does it have on the design?;? What are two security elements needed in the design of health care systems? How can an organization be sure to include appropriate security elements in the systems it develops?;? Name a specific design flaw that could arise in a medical system. Why does the flaw appear and what could be done to prevent it?;Week Four Discussion Questions;? Discuss how two different SDLC methodologies might approach the development and implementation phases. How do the methodologies differ? How are they similar?;? Why does system development remain so challenging? What tools are available to make this easier? Why are these tools not used more widely?;? What are some of the factors that affect how a system is put into active use? What problems can arise when implementing a new system? What can be done to minimize the likelihood and effect of those problems?;Week Five Discussion Questions;? Name three key factors to consider when planning for system maintenance. Do most health care systems actively plan for and implement these factors? Why or why not?;? Why is the cost of maintaining a system often not considered when planning for a new system? What is the best way to ensure that proper maintenance costs are factored into system cost planning?;? Mandatory: Discuss two future trends in system development. How do you think they will affect the future development of systems in the health care industry?
