If two team members do decide to use the same decision, this must be justified in section 9, and there must be no overlap in the queries/reports and spreadsheets, although there should be cross-referencing to indicate whether the solutions complement each other, and how they could be used in conjunction with each other.

Identify and briefly discuss the Officionado management decision selected:
· identify the stakeholder(s) for this decision and their critical success factor(s)
· outline the information requirements of managers making this decision

Consider: aggregation, calculation, classification, selection, sorting, summary.
11. Technical Design (up to 2 pages)

This section should make use of one or more recognised design technique(s), e.g. Decision table/tree, STD, ERD, DFD, task analysis, flow chart, any UML techniques, etc.
12. Test Plan and Results (length depends on complexity of the application; up to 5 pages)
Provide a detailed and practical test plan. The bulk of this section should be in the form of a table detailing specific tests that have been conducted (Test Number, Condition, Input Required, Expected Outcome, Actual Result, Modification Undertaken, Comments, etc.). Provide a brief commentary, explaining how the results of testing were used to amend the design and/or implementation of the ODDS MSS.
13. Outline Solution (up to 2 pages)
Describe the MSS solution in business terms with any relevant illustrations (diagrams and screen shots from the ODDS MSS application). This section should include a brief practical justification of the ODDS MSS solution for each decision, identifying the key stakeholders and specifying the benefits this application will offer.
14. References (Group and Individual)

· a version of the Access or Oracle database with
- a menu (switchboard) or other suitable interface to facilitate user interaction;
- 3 parameter-driven queries/reports
· an Excel application using data downloaded from the database, providing dynamic functionality and using charts/graphs to illustrate trends/patterns in the data.
The printouts should show output generated by ODDS in the queries/reports, and the charts/graphs produced to support the chosen management decision.
