Q1) Select a Property Rental Company of your choice that employs a wide variety of computer-based information systems in order to support their activities. Considering the chosen organisation you are required to:
- Give a brief introduction of the chosen business and then identify the types of computer-based information systems that are likely to be used by the organisation to support its Business that will include both in-house and online. Describe the system in detail, identifying the hardware, software, data and people resources it employs.
- Selecting one of the systems identified in (a), conduct detailed system analysis using various techniques and suggest improvements to make the system more efficient for the identified business purpose. E.g. Manual to Online booking or Website to a Mobile Application.
Q2. Following the information gathered above, you are proposing a new system to the organisation. Explain the systems development life cycle and the Information System modelling and design methodology )e.g. Agile, Waterfall, etc) that will be applied towards the development of the proposed system.
Q3. Since the organisation has a large amount of data, what security measures are in place to safeguard this data? Highlight the social, ethical and legal issues associated with managing such data.
Q4. Evaluate the roles undertaken by the group members, every member should write their own evaluation to complete this project as a group and explain how the overall project was managed. You should also provide evidence of the same in the form of the following :
- The software package used e.g. MS Project
- Gantt Chart
- Minutes of the meeting.
- Task Allocation
- Task evaluation (5 Marks)
Q5. Modelling and Designing of the above proposed system.
In this section you will be Modelling and Designing the Proposed Property Rental System that should at least meet the following system requirements:
The Property Rental Company may have a single or multiple branches across the UK. Each branch will have staff who will be assisting their customers with their bookings both in the branch as well as over the phone. Each branch will have at least a Receptionist, Manager and an Assistant. The company has a range of properties across all the branches, therefore, it is vital that the system keeps a record of all the Property details that they manage in each branch and the details of the person who is responsible for checking the property before handing it over to the customer. A customer shall make single or multiple bookings according to their requirements that may include the type of property and the rental duration. The company would also like to give flexibility to its customers to make and modify their bookings by using the online portal but the cancellations can only be done by either the manager or the receptionist by calling the branch. Once the booking has been made the customer must pay the full rental amount before the property can be rented and the invoice can be issued. Payment can be made using cash or card. In addition to the rental costs, the customers also have the choice of adding additional protection insurance in case of an accidental damage.
1. Draw an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD)
Identify the entities you would require to construct an IS system for the Property Rental and Management for the given scenario. Show how these entities relate to each other in an entity relationship diagram including any assumptions.
- List all the attributes that you have identified in each Entity using MS Access. You should provide the screenshots of MS Access. You must also highlight the Primary keys, Foreign keys, Data types and null/not null values in a schema table.
- Use Cases
Undertake an analysis of the requirements for the system required by the Property Rental System and produce a list of use cases and use case descriptions. Also, take into consideration that a customer can also login to the system and make a booking themselves or ask the employee to do for them either in person or over the phone, both Customer and staff can also print the documents. However, cancellations can only be done by the receptionist or the Manager.
- Your work must demonstrate an appropriate understanding of academic writing and integrity. E.g., References, Turnitin report etc.
- Group presentation (15 Min). Presenting the assignment to the class.

Assessment Criteria Deliverables
Each of the four elements in the short report will be marked using the following scale:
|Short Report elements – Assessment Criteria||Grade Band|
|Excellent coverage of issues with good exemplification and a complete list of references along with turnit in report.||70-100% Excellent|
|Good coverage of issues with some relevant exemplification with adequate references.||60-69% Good to Very Good|
|Adequate coverage of issues with little exemplification||50-59% Satisfactory to Good|
|Unclear coverage of issues but little exemplification||40-49% Pass standard|
|No relevant material or very little relevant material||0-39 Fail|
|Deliverable – ERD||Grade Band|
|There is a clear indication in the answer that students have fully understood the problem domain and spent a considerable amount of time iterating over different solutions. All relevant entities, data attribute, and relationships have been identified and many-to-many relationships have been eliminated. Documentation is to a professional standard along with a complete list of references.||70-100% Excellent|
|Most of the relevant entities, data attributes and relationships have been identified. Many-to-many relationships have been eliminated. Any assumptions have been justified in the context of the case study and problem domain. Documentation is of a high standard and there is an evidence of iteration and adequate referencing.||60-69% Good to Very Good|
|About half of the relevant entities, data attributes and relationships have been identified. The standard of documentation is satisfactory. Evidence of iteration will be patchy.||50-59% Satisfactory to Good|
|Very little or no iteration. Less than half of the relevant entities, data attributes and relationships have been identified. The standard of documentation is generally weak.||40-49% Pass standard to satisfactory|
|Significant errors and misunderstandings. Entities, data attributes, and relationships have not been identified correctly. Level of detail is inappropriate. Documentation is poor. Task not attempted or incomplete or fails to identify the most obvious points.||0-39 Fail|
|Deliverable – Use Case||Grade Band|
|There is a clear indication in the answer that students have fully understood the problem domain and spent a considerable amount of time iterating over different solutions. All relevant actors and use cases have been identified and their relationships clearly shown. Documentation is to a professional standard.||70-100% Excellent|
|Most of the relevant actors and use cases have been identified. Any assumptions will be justified in the context of the case study and problem domain. Documentation will be of a high standard and there will be an evidence of iteration.||60-69% Good to Very Good|
|About half of the actors and use cases have been identified and there will be no redundant use cases. The standard of documentation is satisfactory. Evidence of iteration will be patchy.||50-59% Satisfactory to Good|
|Very little or no iteration. There may be a number of redundant use cases. The standard of documentation is generally weak.||40-49% Pass standard to satisfactory|
