Article Review, Software Development Study
A 3 page summary of a research article on software development. Research has suggested that user participation in the analysis stage of software development will be more significant to the overall success of software development than user participation in the design stage. Most of this research has focused only on project team members and not on operational users whose work will be impacted by the system being developed. Wu and Marakas designed a study that explored the “impact of operational end user participation in two important stages of the system development life cycle,” specifically, the analysis and design phrases of software development (Wu and Marakas, 2006, p. 127). No additional sources cited.
Software Engineering and TQM
A 12 page paper discussing software engineering in terms of Total Quality Management (TQM). The paper includes a brief history of TQM as well as discussion of the Deming, Juran and Crosby models, and then places software engineering within that framework. A primary feature of software engineering quality, then, is the service of assisting customers to identify all aspects of their requirements for any new product, particularly in those areas that they have not considered because they are not technically proficient in designing and producing new systems. Quality results from meeting customer expectations, which may be difficult to identify. Appropriate antidotes can be found in the Deming model of quality. Bibliography lists 11 sources.
Information Systems in Wireless Telephone Sales and Marketing
A 6 page paper discussing information systems' contributions to sales and marketing of wireless plans and devices. Information systems can be a true help or a detriment to the salesperson seeking to meet quota or simply close a high percentage of customers entering the store. "Fast" hardware and particularly well-designed software can combine to present a view to the customer of efficiency and dedicated customer responsiveness, both of which positively influence total sales.
