• Doctor (name, provider identification number, age, phone)
After completing the learning activities for this module, use what you have learned to complete this assignment:
1. Design the user interface for the system.You may sketch the screens or use software of your choice. See FAQ for recommendations.
2. Include at least 5 screens.
3. Submit your screens in one document such as Microsoft Word or pdf file.
The purpose of this assignment is give you experience in performing analytical tasks related to this week's learning activities.
After you have completed the learning activities for this week, write a 1-2 paragraph answer for each of the following minicases. Submit all minicases in one word processing document. (APA style is not required.)
Java Masters is an employment exchange agency that has offices in Northern California. Java Masters operates as a broker that links its client companies with independent soft- ware experts (commonly called contractors) with advanced Java and Web-development skills for short-term contracts. They are developing a Web-based system that will enable client companies to list job needs and search the database of independent contractors. The independent contractors also can post résumés and availabilities, and search the database of available jobs. Both contractors and companies pay fees to join the service. Some contractors and companies prefer to remain anonymous until they meet face-to-face. Develop the nonfunctional requirements and architecture design for the system.
Tots to Teens is a catalog retailer specializing in children’s clothing. A project has been underway to develop a new order-entry system for the company’s catalog clerks. The old system had a character-based user interface that corresponded to the system’s COBOL underpinnings. The new system will feature a graphical user interface more in keeping with up-to-date PC products in use today.
The company hopes that this new user interface will help reduce the turnover they have experienced with their order-entry clerks. Many newly hired order entry staff found the old system very difficult to learn and were overwhelmed by the numerous mysterious codes that had to be used to communicate with the system. A user interface walk-through evaluation was scheduled for today to give the users a first look at the new system’s interface.
The project team was careful to invite several key users from the order-entry department. In particular, Norma was included because of her years of experience with the order-entry system. Norma was known to be an informal leader in the department; her opinion influenced many of her associates. Norma had let it be known that she was less than thrilled with the ideas she had heard for the new system. Due to her experience and good memory, Norma worked very effe tively with the character-based system and was able to breeze through even the most convoluted transactions with ease. Norma had trouble suppressing a sneer when she heard talk of such things as “icons” and “buttons” in the new user interface.
Cindy was also invited to the walk-through because of her influence in the order-entry department. Cindy has been with the department for just 1 year, but she quickly became known because of her successful organization of a sick-child day-care service for the children of the department workers. Sick children are the number-one cause of absenteeism in the department, and many of the workers could not afford to miss workdays. Never one to keep quiet when a situation needed improvement, Cindy has been a vocal supporter of the new system.
a. Drawing upon the design principles presented in the text, describe the features of the user interface that will be most important to experienced users like Norma.
b. Drawing upon the design principles presented in the text, describe the features of the user interface that will be most important to novice users like Cindy.
This material may consist of step-by-step explanations on how to solve a problem or examples of proper writing, including the use of citations, references, bibliographies, and formatting. This material is made available for the sole purpose of studying and learning - misuse is strictly forbidden.The non-functional requirements of the proposed system of the Java Masters are,
• Usability requirements
o The interfaces of the system must be suitable for different types of users and for performing different types of activities with the system.
o The interfaces must have all accessibility details like ‘Help’ button, ‘Back to Home’ button etc.
o The color, theme, fonts etc. must be consistent for all interfaces.
o There must be minimum number of required controls. The users must follow guided instructions for each tasks.
• Reliability requirements (Shelly, Cashman, & Rosenblatt, 2015),
