Computerization

 


In a four- to five-page paper (not including the title page or reference page) analyze a business task that you would like to computerize. Consider how you could use the steps of the information systems development lifecycle as illustrated in Figure 12.3 (p. 486) to help you analyze a business task. To complete this assignment, you must:

 

  1. Describe your proposed computerization project.
  2. Create a schematic similar to Figure 12.3 that includes the specific information as it relates to your business task computerization project. Be sure to address the systems development lifecycle.
  3. Describe the operational feasibility, technical feasibility, and legal and political feasibility of the proposed computerization task. Use Figure 12.4 and Figure 12.6 for guidance. You may prepare a table along with your description, but it is not required.
  4. Formulate a list of both tangible and intangible benefits that support your proposed computerization project. Use Figure 12.5 for guidance. Provide a justification for your choices.

 

Your paper must be formatted according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, and it must include citations and references for the text and at least two scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library.

 

Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
