IT 510 Final Project Guidelines and Rubric
The final project for this course is the creation of a System Proposal Document.
In any modern enterprise, it is crucial that all of the different stakeholders, users, inputs, and outputs that relate to the business’s IT systems coalesce in a logical
and cohesive way for the systems to be effective. As a member of an IT team, your overarching goal is to ensure that the IT systems ultimately do what the
business needs them to do. In this course, you have learned about the key principles and practices underlying the analysis, design, implementation, and
management of IT systems. In this final project, you will apply this knowledge by creating a systems proposal document.
The project is divided into four milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final
submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Module Two, Module Four, Module Six, and Module Eight. The final submission will occur in Module Nine.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes: Assess the relationship of systems analysis, design, implementation, and development processes as they relate to the management of information
Communicate the paradigms, processes, and activities of systems development to diverse audiences
Apply structure and object oriented analysis modeling techniques to analyze, design, and manage information technology systems
Construct written and visual representations of the analysis, design, implementation, and management of information technology systems based on the
systems development life cycle Prompt
You will select your own case study and will apply the content provided, describing the business process to complete the final project. Alternate sources for case
studies include the case studies found in the textbook with the exception of the Personal Trainer Case. You can additionally search the internet for business case
You will complete an analysis of an existing information technology system and make recommendations for updates to meet business goals based on your chosen
case study. Your final submission will include an introduction, systems requirements, systems design specifications, and an implementation plan. All of the
components listed below should be submitted as a single, organized systems proposal document and include screenshots of all relevant diagrams, charts, and
I. Introduction: Provide an overview of your selected case. Be sure to provide appropriate citations and reference to the case study you have selected. a) Background: Establish a context for understanding your systems proposal. Specifically, explain any essential paradigms, processes, and activities
of the existing information technology systems.
