  3. 3. Vision and Scope Document Introduction This is the Vision and Scope document of OURS project. Like any other Vision and Scope document, this document will cover the problem and vision statement including project background, list of users, stakeholders, candidate risks, assumptions & constraints, and project scope. In addition, the document will also cover the part of development team introduction. Development team & OURS project TiHonMumMim is a small software development team set up in 2007 by 5 students of International University. The structure of the team includes 3 software engineers, 1 system & networking engineer, and 1 team leader. Our business goal is to be a leading company in IT. And our slogan is “Computing, consulting, and programming professionally” (CC&PP). For more information about our team: Email: TiHonMumMim@yahoo.com Blog: http://360.yahoo.com/TiHonMumMim 3

  5. 5. Vision and Scope Document Problem Statement Project background There is a widespread agreement that the policy in course registration is very complicated, costly, take-time, and inconvenient to both students and university. This is due the fact that at the beginning of each semester, the university has to pause or delay some activities to spend time for course registration of students. Some staffs have to prepare for offering courses list (including selecting courses and inviting lecturers …), print it out, and deliver the registration form to each student. After around one week, all students’ registration form will be returned. And the staffs have to input students’ registration information to Excel files. They also have to check manually whether the registration form of each student is legal or not basing on some conditions such as prerequisite course, maximum and minimum number of credits allowed to register … If there is anything wrong or students want to add or drop the courses, everything in the above process has to be restarted. And sometimes some papers are lost when documents are moved from one place to another place; both students and university have to spend time for retrieving necessary information and approve it. However, it is impossible to do that in some cases. In addition, calculating tuition fee for students, managing students’ academic history… are also thorny issues. Mistakes can occur anytime when financial office‘s staffs use calculator or Microsoft excel to calculate tuition fee. Students’ transcript management is also another issue. When students want to have transcript to see their academic history, they have to wait at least two weeks to receive it from academic affair. Those are some typical examples for the inconvenience and complication of the current course registration policy. They lead the university to the decision of building Online Course Registration System to improve effectiveness, reduce time and cost in course registration process. 5
  6. 6. Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering Key users STUDENT : use the system to register for course or view academic history. ACADEMIC AFFAIR STAFF: use the system to manage school, lecturer-professor, and student information. FINANCIAL OFFICE STAFF: use the system to monitor financial activities related to course registration. Stakeholders STUDENT : use the system to register for course or view academic history. ADMINISTRATOR: Manage the system after it is built. ACADEMIC AFFAIR STAFF : use the system to manage school, lecturer-professor, and student information. PROFESSOR LECTURER: They could give ideas or comment on the solution for the system’s development and improvement. FINANCIAL OFFICE MANAGER: They also manage the investment of university for the system development. DEVELOPMENT TEAM : include all software engineers, business analysts, system analysts, system designers, implementers, testers, QA, and project manager… They are tasked to build the system. List of Risks All team member need preparation time for midterm, final exam, and other subjects. Phung, Thuc, and Hoang take pre-thesis course. Lack of experiences in software project management, especially in testing, verification, validation, risks management and changes management exists in the Team. No substitution if any team member cannot continue to contribute to the project. Applying the project again from the beginning could take development team more time. 6
  7. 7. Vision and Scope Document Development time is limited in 2 months only. Therefore the pressure is really high. Development team cannot deliver the components when reviewed. Development team could deliver components of unacceptably low quality, and time must be added to improve quality. Developing extra functionalities that are not required will extends the schedule. Low motivation and moral reduce productivity. Team member needs extra time to learn unfamiliar tools or techniques. Conflicts among team members’ ideas results in poor performances, more meeting, and extra rework. People’s assignments do not match their strengths. Components developed separately cannot be integrated easily, requiring redesign and rework. Detail reporting could take more development time. Assumptions & Constraints of Online University Registration System The system will be applied for universities using credit system like International University. The registration information of students is processed by academic affair. And only academic affair has right to manage and process the registration information. Development team will use J2EE architecture to develop system. Policy for tuition fee payment is using cash and it is managed by financial office. Development team must have at least one 2-hour meeting per week. Development time 2 months and 10 days (from 01/10/2007 to 20/12/2008) Development team must produce the first build before review 3 (05/12/2007). Each team member must work at least 15 hours per week. 7
  8. 8. Faculty of Computer Science and Engineering Vision of Solution Vision statement As the head of information systems for International University team are tasked with developing a new Online Course Registration System. The new system will allow students to access the system during registration time to register for courses, add or drop the registered courses, check tuition fee, and review their academic history. Academic affair can use the system as a mean to manage information of schools, classes, professors, students and offering courses. Financial office will use the system to monitor financial activities. The system provides a better solution and policy for course registration in International University. It reduces much time, cost, and resources required in processing registration information of students. Scope To be noticed on the scope of the system that this system is an Online University Registration System. It is not a university management system which is much larger than the system we try to build. It is only a part of the university management system. Therefore, we have to pay attention on building applications supporting students to do registration, academic affairs to manage information related to students’ courses registration, and financial office to mange financial activities.
