The student will complete three individual assignments, in Weeks 2-4, in the context of the firm working on the project. The focus will be on the software architecture for the FSP but the key result will be a Technical Architecture Document that specifies the proposed system solution.;Learning Team Instructions;Create and post the Learning Team Charter this week.;Learning Team project background: Smith Consulting has received some feedback and concerns that their processes and procedures are not sufficiently documented. This lack of professional documentation has caused some loss of potential contracts for the firm. The Learning Team has been given the assignment to define, develop, and propose standards for a software development and testing environment at Smith Consulting.;The Learning Team will prepare a 20-25 page paper describing a Software Development & Testing Specification and a 15-20 slide PowerPoint ? presentation on the specification. These deliverables will be developed by the Learning Team over the duration of the course with final submission in Week Five. Assume that the paper and the presentation are to be delivered to an executive management committee.;The paper should contain the following sections;?;Define the Smith Consulting engagement approach. This will include a statement of the way the firm works with clients and how projects are managed.;?;Define the software development and quality assurance processes and procedures.;?;Describe in detail the testing procedures to be exercised in the following areas;o;Programs;o;Systems;o;Interfaces;?;Describe the infrastructure including hardware and software capabilities that will make up the software testing environment.;?;Define the format and requirements for development of a formal program specification. This program specification is essentially the software design and development process strategy to be provided to the software developers working on a Smith development project.;The PowerPoint presentation should address the following items;?;The Smith Consulting engagement approach. This will include how the firm works with clients and how projects are managed.;?;The key elements of the proposed software design and development specification and strategy.;?;Why you believe the proposed development strategy will be cost-effective.;Start work this week on the paper section involving Smith Consulting?s client engagement approach.;Monday;Week Two: Software Architecture and Modeling;Details;Due;Points;Objectives;2;2.1;Identify the system architecture.;2.2;Examine software design principles.;2.3;Develop technical design specifications.;Readings;Read Ch. 15, ?Principles of Software Design,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read Ch. 16, ?The Unified Modeling Language,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read Ch. 17, ?Software Design Patterns,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read Ch. 18, ?Software Architecture,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read the Week Two Read Me First.;Read this week?s Electronic Reserve Readings.;Participation;Participate in class discussion.;All Week;2.5;Discussion Questions;Respond to weekly discussion questions.;Thursday/Saturday;2.5;Learning Team Instructions;Start work this week on the paper section involving the description of the software development and quality assurance processes and procedures. This description must include a guideline as to when the firm might consider using alternative development methods relative to specific project requirements. The Learning Team must consider that a single development is not likely to be a one-size-fits-all solution for the firm?s broad services.;Submit a 1 page outline of the above paper section showing the key headers you will use to delineate the important content areas.;Post your Learning Team Peer Evaluation for the week.;Monday;Monday;1;Individual;Frequent Shopper Program, Part I;Research, write, and provide a 4-6 page proposal of the alternative development methods the firm might consider for completing the Frequent Shopper Program. Include the following in the proposal;?;Explain the advantages and disadvantages for each method relative to this project.;?;Explain how the firm would conduct testing for each development method.;Monday;15;Week Three: Software Interfaces;Details;Due;Points;Objectives;3;3.1;Describe software interfaces and controls.;3.2;Explain testing strategies and planning.;Readings;Read Ch. 19, ?Detailed Design,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read Ch. 20, ?Design Quality and Metrics,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read Ch. 21, ?Advanced and Emerging Methods in Software Design,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read Ch. 27, ?Module and Integration Testing,? of Software Engineering: Modern Approaches.;Read Ch. 4, ?Testing Strategy,? of Software Testing: Testing Across the Entire Software Development Life Cycle.;Read Ch. 5, ?Test Planning,? of Software Testing: Testing Across the Entire Software Development Life Cycle.;Read the Week Three Read Me First.;Read this week?s Electronic Reserve Readings.;Participation;Participate in class discussion.;All Week;2.5;Discussion Questions;Respond to weekly discussion questions.;Thursday/Saturday;2.5;Learning Team Instructions;Start work this week on the paper section involving the software testing procedures (covering programs, systems, and interfaces). These procedures must be adequate to support both Smith developed software and any commercial off-the-shelf software they are delivering to their clients.;Submit a 1 page outline of the above paper section showing the key headers you will use to delineate the important content areas.;Start work this week on your PowerPoint presentation.;Post your Learning Team Peer Evaluation for the week.;Monday;Monday;1;Individual;Frequent Shopper Program, Part II;For the Frequent Shopper Program, create a Technical Architecture document of 6-8 pages using Logical Model and Physical Model delineations as appropriate. Cover the following as a minimum;?;Hardware platform: Describe the hardware environment to support the development and production of this system.;?;Network connections between the stores and headquarters: A network diagram is required.;?;Software Development Tools: Describe the software development tool proposed to build this application.;?;Database information;?;User interfaces
