Development of a Real-World Business Automation System as a Team using a Standardized Software Development Methodology

The focus of this presentation will be to present the process of developing a business process automation system which was built as a team for a local business. An important feature of this project was that it focused on applying concepts learned in software engineering classes taken by the team to model a real-world system after gathering actual customer requirements. This process involved extensive meetings with the customer. Subsequent to the modeling effort completed in fall 2007, an implementation is created using contemporary technologies such as Java, the mysql database, and object oriented design patterns. The system's main purpose is to manage the inventory and customer information of the business in a database with a graphical user interface. The implementation is being created ensuring strict traceability with the design model, thereby leading to an extensible and maintainable application. The project is being developed and documented in a manner that should enable handling the inevitable customer-requested future changes in an efficient manner.
