Need help with this please: Creating a System Build Project, in which you will be required to design an information system for an organization of your choosing: possibly a current or past employer, or even a fictitious organization

System Build Project
For this project, you will design a system for the organization of your choosing.  This could be for a current or former employer or some fictitious organization.  The system you design might be data storage, telecommunications, e-commerce, accounting information, manufacturing process system, inventory management, or some other system approved by your instructor.  You will discover (or create, if you choose a fictional organization) and explain the main systems in place, discuss the integration, and explain how the data collected by these systems helps the organization make decisions and carry out the strategic plan.  This project must meet the written communication skills at a Bachelor level competency as described in the Writing Across the Curriculum Initiative.
Specific parts of the paper should include:
•	Determine the System (Needs Analysis) 
o	Problem to solve 
o	Determine specific issue 
o	What part can technology solve 
o	Get input from creators and users 
o	How solving this problem supports the organization's mission
•	Integration of system into current organization system 
o	Describe current major systems 
o	Discuss compatibility of the new system with current systems 
o	Explore various decision-making support models 
o	Evaluate the advantages and limitations of data in DSS 
o	Explore different implementation processes 
o	Define the process chosen 
o	Explore security issues for this system
•	Feasibility 
o	Hardware determinants (types, capacity, speed, processing power) 
o	Software determinants (types, applications, compatibility, integration) 
o	maintenance and upgrade, obsolescence issues, future changes in technology 
o	Cost analysis (total upfront cost, total cost of ownership) 
o	Organizational culture and technology changes
•	Measurement 
o	Critical success factors (how often it will be monitored, how we will know it is successful, creator and/or user of the data/system input) 
o	Efficiency measurement (how has it increased or not increased efficiency) 
o	Cost measurement (save costs, ROI on initial outlay)
Deliverable: the completed System Build Project, addressing all the parts listed above, will be due Wednesday of Seminar 5, and is worth 150 points.
