Detailed instructions for this assignment are below and in the Research Project Requirements section, which describes the complete project.
Some suggestions on the types of data that you might include to build your paper are as follows:
- Describe how the information systems will benefit your company.
- Provide details and examples of applications and solutions offered by retail vendors.
- Describe the framework for each solution that the internal staff of your company might develop and implement.
- Present an account of the strengths, weaknesses, and cost considerations for those solutions.
- Identify and describe how a solution can provide a competitive advantage, influence strategy, affect organizational performance, and increase operational efficiency.
In your role as an employee at a medium-to-large aviation-related business, it’s time to drill down to the specifics for two of the Management Information Systems you selected. As you perform research and compose your data, remember that you are in a mid-to-upper level management position and have significant decision-making influence with your company.
Before you begin to work on the Project Submission 2 assignment, review the instructor’s grading comments and markups on the Project Submission 1 document and correct any issues. Re-save the corrected Project Submission 1 document as a new Project Submission 2 working document.
The following are the submission requirements for this assignment:
- Begin the body of the text section with a brief paragraph consisting of 4-5 sentences that introduces the need for IS solutions in your company.
- Submit researched scholarly data for TWO of the IS-related solutions that you selected.
- Submit a minimum of TWO full pages of double-spaced text in the Body of the Text section for EACH IS-related solution. The TOTAL number of submitted pages in the Body of the Text section is FOUR full pages. The Title, Abstract, and Reference List pages are not considered part of the “FOUR full pages” in the Body of the Text section.
- A minimum of TWO primary reference sources outside of the course textbook are required to be cited and referenced in the document submission (ONE per topic).
- As you do your research and compose data for each of the IS-related solutions in each assignment, keep up the Reference List page and make notes for the data in the Conclusion section that you will compose in your final draft document.
Don’t forget to save the working document when you have finished adding the new data.
Your document submission is due by the posted due date. Your instructor will use the 5.3 Research Project: Submission 2 Rubric for evaluating and grading your submission.
This assessment aligns with Module Objective 2 and Learning Outcomes 1 & 2.
