Implementation of the Interview Scheduling System for Miami University's Career Planning and Placement Office
This project is an extension of systems analysis and design cavered in two classes - SAN 4721572 (Analysis of Infcwmation Systems) and SAN 4751575 (Structured Design and Implementation). My implementation involved work in the areas of integrating a subset of the system, designing a multiuser accessing means, investigating database security, implementing dynamic calls, setting-up a database load facility, and researching laser printers and forms software. The integration involved getting the system to an operational state as opposed to a production state. Multiuser access to the system will be permitted to about 2600 Seniors and accounting Juniors. The students will be permitted to access the system simultaneously, and SQL will provide the concurrency control. The database security will be upheld by offering authority privilege to the program instead of the users. Dynamic calls will be used to maintain a reasonable virtual machine size. A database load facility will be used by the DBA at the beginning of every year to load demographic data pertaining to students, The standard resumes will be printed by the CPPO and that will require a new laser and a forms software. Research has been completed for various lasers and forms software, and a recommendation is given. The final portion of the paper presents some of the benefits that 1 have obtained while working on this project.
