Use questionnaires and interviews to gather information. The complete system should be analysed and objectives set for the complete solution. (a) analyse a real problem, identify the requirements of a potential user and identify the parts that are appropriate for a computer solution (The analysis of the whole system should be complete and the problem definition should cover all areas. General objectives should be set for the complete system. The module(s) selected for prototyping should contain greater detail for the areas to be developed, as the candidate would have given these areas more thought.) ...read more.

If I were to review my time plan I would definitely have allowed more time for the implementation and coding. I think I spent too long on the analysis and design and could have achieved the same amount of work in a shorter amount of time. I used my flow charts when coding my program as the allowed me to graphically see what procedures I needed to create and how to link my program. I would recommend the back-up of the programs files to another storage medium is possible just encase one of the files were to become corrupted or deleted by accident. If there was corruption the file can easily be recreated by running the program again. If the files were backed up then it would be possible to replace the corrupted or lost files and the program would read from these. I ran out of time on my testing because when I found errors these had to be fixed and then retested. Overall I am please with the program. It has fulfilled all the relevant first year objectives and operates as intended. Chapter 9 - User Documentation This will be fairly simple, as only one module has been implemented. Include information on environment, installation and how to use the implemented system. User documentation (3 marks) This assessment is for the overall quality of the user documentation. 3 A well-written, organised, word processed report has been produced. ( Full instructions are given for installation. ( Clear guidance is given for the use of the system. ( 2 A satisfactory word processed report has been produced with some evidence of organisation. ( Adequate instructions are given for installation. ( Some guidance is given on the use of the system. ( 1 The report is poorly organised. ( Little guidance is given on the use of the system ( 0 No documentation is present or it is of an inappropriate standard.
