Complete a preliminary investigation, requirements analysis, and system recommendation

Small System Design Project

You will use the information learned throughout the course to identify and document a full information system for a small company. You will apply the basic steps of the SDLC to building the IT infrastructure for an electronic health care data system for an urgent care facility* for a (mythical) UMUC Student Health Service clinic by addressing what actions are taken and what decisions are made in each phase.

Make sure to address key technical issues from this course and to include and specify key elements and components of a computer system as covered in this course, including (but not limited to) the following (in no particular order):

CPU type, speed, etc

Memory type, size, speed, etc

Needed I/O devices


Operating system

Other required software

Shared resources

Data format


Common file format

Databases and DBMS




The paper should make clear how the functional requirements of the clinic result in the specific technical design specifications, above.

The body of the paper should be no more than 12 point type, not less than 4 pages or 1200 words and not more than 10 pages or 2400 words, not including title page, table of contents, executive summary, and reference bibliography. The paper will require a title page, a hot-clickable MS Word generated table of contents, executive summary, 4-10 pages of content with incorporation of a minimum of 3 external resources from credible sources, and a Works Cited/Reference page.

The paper should either detail each step in the SDLC (Systems Development Life Cycle) or should detail each step in the The Formal Systems Approach, whichever you determine fits your paper and approach better. Either way, there should be an emphasis on the technology outcome and how it flows from the functional requirements.

Refer to both the document “SDLC Module 2 from IFSM 201” and other SDLC material in Course Content, and the material on the “The Formal Systems Approach” in Course Content and the Webliography or at
