2) 7155-Proj Management

Assignment Description

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program offers free tax help to people who generally make $54,000 or less, persons with disabilities, and limited English speaking taxpayers who need assistance in preparing their own tax returns. IRS-certified volunteers provide free basic income tax return preparation with electronic filing to qualified individuals. More information on the program can be found online (https://www.irs.gov/individuals/free-ta … volunteers).

VITA sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls, and other convenient locations across the country. Some of these sites have a large number of volunteers to assist these individuals, while other sites have very few volunteers compared to the number of people visiting the site for assistance.

One VITA site is Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU). At this site, students are trained and certified by the IRS to participate in the program. More information about VITA at SNHU can be found online (http://acadwebsnhu.snhu.edu/vita/).

There is an initiative to be able to utilize the number of volunteers at the SNHU site to be able to process tax returns for not only the individuals that physically come to this site, but also to help out other remote sites that do not have as many volunteers. Right now, the process to be able to do this process remotely requires the volunteer at the other site to meet with the individual, look at any sensitive information in person (social security cards, etc.), scan any of their documents (W2, etc.), and upload those documents to Dropbox. Once the documents are in Dropbox, the VITA coordinator at SNHU is emailed, and they will in turn email the link to the student volunteer to process. Once it is complete, this process requires more emails to be able to eventually get the documents to the volunteer at the other site, who then can pass them along to the individual.

This process is not efficient and requires a lot of emails for the various steps. There is also a possible problem of two volunteers working on the same document, as there is no capability in the system to check in and out documents. If this is to be scaled up to provide support to more remote sites across the state and possibly to a national level, a more efficient system is needed.

The primary requirements for this product are:
– The process needs to support multiple sites submitting documents for the SNHU VITA program to process
– There should be an easy way to see if a volunteer is in the process of working on those documents to avoid duplication
– If this continues to grow, there should be the capability for other universities to be able to join SNHU with processing the documents
– There are security concerns for the system, based on the data being submitted (the software program used to prepare the tax returns is TaxSlayer Pro – this can be used as a starting point for ideas about what kind of data is used and any security that is typical for this data)
– The potential for the individuals to be able to check the status of their documents online or submit the documents directly instead of going to a remote site is a bonus

Instead of developing a solution in-house, the SNHU VITA program has decided to acquire and integrate a solution. The solution may be a single product or an effort that integrates multiple products with minimal additional effort required for integration to minimize cost.

Assignment Description

In this work(3000 words), you should show the effectiveness of a direct marketing action of a sales company, targeted at improving the sales made via the company’s website.The marketing action was the company’s website. The marketing action was a campaign with the following steps: 1) sent physical flyers to a set of 15,000 customers who had made a purchase, and 2) contacted these customers also via email.

You have available a database of the contacted customers, with several customer profile variables, explained below, with three outcome variables:

Project Statement – In this work, you will study the effectiveness of a direct marketing action of a sales company, targeted at improving the sales made via the company’s website. The marketing action was a campaign with the following steps: 1) sent physical flyers to a set of 15,000 customers who had made a purchase, and 2) contacted these customers also via email.
You have available a database of the contacted customers, with several customer profile variables, explained below, with three outcome variables:
• Visit (whether the customer visited the store website in the next three months following the marketing actions),
• Conversion (whether the customer made a purchase in the next three months), and
• Spend (how much money the customer spent, if any, in the following three months).
In an attempt to improve its future decision-making, the company wishes to understand whether customers
responded to the marketing action or not. Additionally, the company also wants to define customer’s profiles following these analyses. You have been tasked with this and therefore you must provide a professional report that answers the following questions:
Question 1. Perform basic data analysis tasks over each predictive variable. What are their statistical properties? Are there outliers? Are any other corrections necessary? If any errors in the data are found, correct their values so that your analyses are statistically valid.
Question 2. Develop a statistical test to study the relationship between each predictive variable and the target variable “visit”. How do you define the customer that responded to the marketing campaign with a visit?

5) 7161-proj management

Assignment Description

ASAP Methodology of a C++ Program that converts Images to Ascii Values:
1) Project Preparation:
• Goal Setting:
The purpose of this program is to convert chain of custody image into text values(ascii that computer can understand) that latter can be used for editing and deleting some words.
• Implementation strategy and sequence:
It’s simple. A character that you’re using in your program already have an ASCII-value, but you sees it like a character. If you want to have the value itself, you can simply convert the character to an integer.

• // C++, with C++ type-casting
• char cMyCharacter = ‘A’;
• int iMyAsciiValue = static_cast<int>(cMyCharacter);
You can actually leave out the type-casting part. C++ is built in the way that when an integer-variable meets a char-variable, it automatic converts.
One of the (first) things I tend to do when programming is to devise which are the steps the program should take in order to achieve the desired outcome. It is not the only method to develop a general scheme of what the program has to do, but in this case we will work our way backwards. Starting from the ASCII art image we will try to guess from where did it come and how it was obtained.
Clearly there has been a point in the process of generating the ASCII art image where each pixel or region of pixels from the original image has been mapped to a certain character. Since the final output is the ASCII image we won’t be too wrong if we assume that this is the last step of our process.

(figure 1)
Now we have to deduce if the image used as input for the mapping is the original image or if there has been some pre-processing applied to it before this mapping step. Since the ASCII art image is made only of black characters over a white background, which from a certain distance looks like a grayscale image, a good guess is that a grayscale version of the original image is the image used as a reference for the mapping.

8) CE0002-Critical Reflective Journal

Assignment Description

EXAMPLE CRJ for a fictitious student Judy – 29 years old, single.
She went to comprehensive school, got a 2:1 degree in Business and Management from a university in the north of England. Has a supportive family and friend network. She lives 60 miles outside of London. She is good with people. She knows she is open-minded and sociable. She dislikes inefficiency, people who are prejudiced but is scared of new
situations. Often, she might be seen as “over confident” which others find annoying. Since leaving university she still lives with her family, but commutes to London. She has worked for the past five years for a small financial company within their project team. Her experiences of PM are on small-scale projects. Before getting the job, she did temporary work in a travel agency, other office work and worked in a pub. She has done volunteering.
To create this narrative, Judy has made a conscious plan of what she will read.
1. PM Journals, Business Journals
2. Blogs, Twitter feeds? – anything she feels will inspire her
3. Personal Development, Institute of Personnel etc
4. Personal Analysis material
She will make a conscious plan to talk to trusted people who know her – family / friends / work colleagues.
She will try to understand the negatives – things which irritate her / annoy her / things she cannot work with (situations / events) She will also try to understand the “networks” in PM, be they professional, social etc in order
to get a feeling of how people move on in the project management world.
She will also try to understand the essential attitudes, behaviours and attributes that are required by the PM industry.
She must also try to get a fundamental grasp of what a good project manager must demonstrate they can “offer” to an employer. She may not have these now, but she must be able to set a plan where she can acquire them.
After the initial analysis, Judy has begun to understand her strengths and weaknesses and she must develop a plan to enhance the positives in her skills, character etc, but also to try to find a way she can deal with things which she sees as negative.
From this she can then develop a working timetable for her 5 year plan. By this time she will be 34 years old. She may have to think about what her personal circumstances might be like during that time, for example will she move out of her family home, will she likely get married, start a family and importantly what kind of work/life balance she really wants

15) 7201-Project Management

Assignment Description

The objective of this assignment is to assess your understanding of basic project management
concepts and your proficiency in using project management software to produce project charts and
reports. In particular, the assignment focuses on the following project management knowledge areas
in the PMBOK: project integration management, project scope management, project time
management and project cost management.
Your task is to develop a project case to incorporate “Voice Recognition” technologies for a major
tourist attraction along a major Australian highway. There are many franchises of this business. The
development is for a private tourist business which attracts domestic and international customers
from all walks of life including adults, teenagers, children and senior citizens, on a cost recovery
basis.
The business attracts around 200,000 families per year. The various business Information Systems
are quite dated, coming with a number of legacy systems, and the efficiency of the systems in
producing management reports is found to be lacking.
The management board decided to incorporate “Voice Recognition” technologies to accommodate
both local and remote customers through “Voice Recognition” technologies. The immediate task at
hand is to develop a business plan including financial modelling aspects, human resource
requirements, scheduling tasks, and customer relationship system requirements. The management
board would like to see an integrated, up-to-date “Voice Recognition” technologies being developed
that can operate both for local as well as remote potential customers, but can also provide full services
to customers through the latest handheld wireless devices in addition through “Voice Recognition”
technologies. The existing infrastructure has been updated with new core systems but require
additional enhancement to support wireless and voice recognition.
The current environment does have a wireless interface to support the wider use of “Voice
Recognition” technologies, but the management board is concerned with the amount of traffic over
the wireless technology infrastructure for this tourist base business organisation. There are 1000
employees, some of whom access the various systems from remote locations.
Your task is to develop a business professional report for the CEO of the business. In the business
report, you are expected to provide a complete business plan/project management document to
provide an initial idea and scope as to the costs of the project. Your business plan/project
management document submission should include the following as per the assignment requirements
below.


16) EM0090- EM201832MAN919CN_1

Assignment Description

In this assessment task, you will present a proposal for the major project assignment as a team of 5 members. Proposal template is available on Moodle. The project must be selected from the networking or the telecommunication area.

The project duration should not be less than 12 Months. Before starting, seek approval for the proposed project from your laboratory tutor. Address all stages of Project Management as outlined in the unit. A suitable project management software (e.g. MS Project 2010) must be used.

The project report should include all phases of a project life cycle, i.e. Initiating, Planning, Executing and Closing. Project Management Plan helps the management team to maintain a constant focus towards delivering the project in accordance with the customer needs and expectations.

The development of such a plan begins with the business case (refined from the Project Charter), project objectives and goals, success criteria, scope, high-level schedule, stakeholder expectations, communication plan, benefits and costs, governance and resourcing, management approach, risk management plan, and potential ethical issues.

The project documents ensure a consistent understanding of the project, help to set expectations, and identify resources necessary to move the project to the next level of detailed planning. Every project must be delivered in a manner that captures the user’s trust and confidence in the chosen projects ability to effectively and efficiently deliver quality services/products. In order to ensure project success, it is imperative that good project management principles are used early in the planning stages. As the project becomes more defined, the Project Management Plan becomes the tool by which the project is managed effectively.

Students should include all aspects of the project as if they were the Project Manager and it is a requirement of the subject that they include the use of software (e.g. Microsoft Project). Students are expected to show evidence of self-directed reading and research using credible resources including, but not limited to their prescribed text. The assignment will be marked on the basis of depth of analysis, research, references and integration of all aspects of project management.

Assessment will be on the basis of the realistic nature of the project and how well it is presented. You should present the final document in a form that would be consistent with the details of your chosen project, and written in Business English in a report format. Make sure that the timeline, the budget and the quality of the work is realistic, justifiable and sufficiently attractive to win a tender for a real project.
