Measuring progress and requirements in a project can be completed through performance testing. As you review the results, it leads to ways to maintain the project progress. In this week’s assignment you will develop requirements that need measurable results through performance testing. Review the scenario and complete the activity below.
The Recreation and Wellness Intranet Project team is working hard to ensure that the new system they develop meets expectations. The team has a detailed scope statement, but the project manager, Tony Prince, wants to make sure they’re not forgetting requirements that might affect how people view the quality of the project. He knows that the project’s sponsor and other senior managers are most concerned with getting people to use the system, improve their health, and reduce healthcare costs. Users want the system to be user-friendly, informative, fun to use, and fast.
Complete the following in a Microsoft Word document.
Develop a list of 6 quality standards or requirements related to meeting the stakeholder expectations described in the Running Case. Organize your paper so I can clearly see each standard and its description. Use a list format or a table. Avoid cramming your entire list into one long paragraph (bad idea!)
Write a brief description of at least 45 words for each requirement. For example, a requirement might be that 90 percent of employees have logged into the system within two weeks after the system rolls out. Think of these requirements as the traits you would expect from a quality system. If this were a food ordering app, for instance, you would want it to have a useful interface, a long list of restaurants to choose from, different payment options, and so on. You can think of these as “requirements” in this case.
Write an explanation of at least 175 words based on the list of standards and requirements on how you will measure progress on meeting the requirements. This explanation should come after the list above. Avoid trying to incorporate the explanation into the list. For example, you might have employees log into the system as part of the training program and track who attends the training. You could also build a feature into the system to track usage by username, department, and other criteria. Support your answer with at least one credible source outside of the course materials. The more sources (References), the better.
Submit your assignment.
