Open View, LLC installs window treatments for homes and offices. They have a large mobile workforce that spends most of the time out in the field with customers. The salespeople follow up on customer leads, visit the homes or offices, take the orders and measurements, order the window treatments, accept payments from customers, and maintain liaison with the customer until the project is completed. The installers are also mobile, obtaining their work assignments on a daily basis, and reporting progress, problems, and completion. Much of this is currently done by telephone, but Open View wants to implement a wireless network to connect the sales force to the corporate customer, materials, ordering, and finance databases. They want to provide the same wireless access for the sales and installation personnel when they are in the office. You will list and define the requirements, create the project steps that need to be completed, identify the technology that needs to be incorporated, identify issues and security risks, and explain how testing will be done to ensure that requirements are met and the wireless network is secure.
You will develop an MS PowerPoint presentation that
- explains the business problem,
- lists the requirements,
- identifies the technology solutions,
- lists major project steps,
- identifies issues and security risks, and
- Explains testing to be done to ensure that requirements are met and the network is secure.
One or more of the presentation slides should contain a table with requirements and corresponding technology solutions. The presentation should also contain appropriate diagrams and illustrations.
It should be designed as a professional presentation with appropriate background, fonts, titles, etc. Separate slides should be included for the cover, the list of topics covered (agenda), the body of the presentation, and the conclusion. Slides should contain the main points in bullet form, with the text of your presentation (what the speaker would say) contained in the Notes section accompanying each slide. The bolded attributes in the Scoring Rubric below must be used as major agenda items in the presentation.
To fully demonstrate the effective writing learning objectives, students should use the “6/6 Rule” when writing bullets. This means that there should be no more than six meaningful words in each bullet and no more than six bullets on a slide. Presentations that do not follow this standard may not be successful
