The Project Director creates the teams for a given project, assigns employees to the teams, and assigns a team leader.

INSS101 Group assignment
Due date: 9 May 2022
Question 1
For this question, you are required to carefully read the systems requirements statement and the process of assigning tasks to members. Basically, this describes an assigning task to members use case.
Systems requirements statement
The Project Director creates the teams for a given project, assigns employees to the teams, and assigns a team leader.
The Project Manager is responsible for assigning tasks to the various teams working on the projects(s).
The Team Leader assigns tasks to the team members. For all intents and purposes, the various team leaders in the class will mimic this because they are also responsible for assigning tasks to their team members working on this case (automating these activities).
The process of assigning tasks to members
The team leader handles this activity. The team leader will start by selecting a team member chosen for his/her team; and, subsequently, will choose tasks from a list box and assign those selected tasks to the selected team member. This process would be repeated until all team members have been assigned the tasks for which they are responsible. This will be communicated to the project manager so that the project manager can assemble a complete Gantt chart and PERT chart for the business system project.
You are required to draw an activity diagram for this particular use case. You are encouraged to use your own creativity in augmenting any additional functionality as long as you specify your assumptions. You need to show all the activities done by the system, project director, project manager and team leader. In addition to that you need to also show all the conditions/decisions that are taken and not forgetting the starting point and ending point of the activity diagram.
(20 marks)
Question 2
At our university, students register for degrees. A student may register for one or more degrees over time. However, the university offers the degree, even if no students register for it. The university keeps records of the degree’s name, the degree’s abbreviation, the total number of credits required, and the minimum and maximum completion time. The university also keeps records of each student’s number, name, surname, address and cell phone number.
Draw an Entity-Relationship diagram of this situation, showing the entities, attributes, relationship(s), cardinalities and primary keys. Denote your primary key with a double asterisk** (15 marks)
Question 3
You have been tasked with developing an automated system to replace the current, manual, error-prone process. The automation of this activity has been welcomed by management for quite some time with the anticipation of significantly reducing the company’s expenses. It is hoped that this reduction will be accomplished by 1) creating more successful teams working with greater precision, 2) completing projects on time and within budget due to a better understanding of system requirements and tasks to be completed, and 3) starting projects on time as a result of the automated project scheduling system.
Assumptions on the type of system, developments teams and duration of the project is encouraged to show creativity in the group.
a. What are the two information gathering techniques are you would use in order to develop this automated system? (5marks)
b. State and explain the type of model that can assist in completing this task. (5marks)
c. Draw a responsibility-based work breakdown structure to illustrate the different activities that need to be completed in order to deliver the system. (10 marks).
d. Develop a system vision document for the system (10 marks)
Question 4
In a Book publishing system, the system must be able to do the following: In order to publish a story there is a Writer who will draft a story on the system. The system should allow the writer to revise the story. The Editor reviews the story. The Editor also suggest edits. Then there is the Proofreader who will also review the story and suggest edits. The Agent will sell the story. Then there is the Distributor who will package the story. And lastly there is the Bookseller who will deliver story to consumers.
From the scenario given above, answer the following questions:
a. Outline how you can use the user-goal and event decomposition technique in determining user requirements. (5 marks)
b. Draw a Use Case diagram for the Book publishing system. (10 marks)
Question 5
When a new customer comes to the library to open a library user account, the librarian first login the online library management system. The library management system checks if all user details have been entered correctly. He then enters the details of the user into the user credentials database and select account type. Once user credentials have been captured on credentials database and the account has been registered successful an email is sent to the customer.
From the scenario given above, you are supposed to draw a sequence diagram showing how the different objects interact with the library system and show all messages that flow between the objects. (10 marks).
Question 6
You have been appointed as a systems analyst at a production company which has over 5 branches in the different provinces in South Africa. Your task is to assist in developing a new system that will deal with the bottle neck in the production line in the different branches.
Outline the importance of distributing questionnaires and doing observations in the information gathering process, especially with the given case. (10 marks)

All diagrams and flow charts used should be well referenced. Kindly focus the assignment on a few concepts and models and ensure to apply theory to the working of the organization

Please read through the instructions carefully and confirm if you have understood all the requirements of the university for this assignment?
The university takes plagiarism very seriously and expects a very unique assignment that is not been copied by any previous student or used for any previous submission, please confirm the uniqueness of this assignment and ensure a low Turnitin score?
This is the third assignment that I will be working on with your team, I would like to highlight that I had a very bad experience with the previous assignment whereby there were a lot of errors in the solution provided and very poor language/vocabulary used. I would expect a good quality assignment delivered along with the tutor handling this one, please confirm?
The assignment is about 2,500 words with the expectation of at least 10 references in Harvard style and clear and simple English. An executive summary is required but will not be a part of the word count. The professor expects the assignment not to be descriptive but based on facts with evidence. All diagrams and flow charts used should be well referenced. Kindly focus the assignment on a few concepts and models and ensure to apply theory to the working of the organization. When introducing the company talk about what the company does as a whole and then slowly narrow down to which part of the operations you will be focusing on along with the theory and models. Please confirm if you have understood this requirement along with the instructions in the assignment guidelines?
I will share more instructions incase the professor has required for anything else. Let me know if you need any of the class materials to complete this assignment.
As discussed in our previous email, I would expect the best possible rate and I would like to utilize the below 50% discount for this assignment, kindly confirm your final quote and the best possible rate.
Looking forward to your confirmation on the above.

 

 

Exercise 4 – Text Mining & Sentiment Analysis

Exercise 4 – Text Mining & Sentiment Analysis
Prince is considered among one the most talented American musicians of his generation. He was a songwriter who could perform at a professional level on virtually all the instruments he required. Some people say that he wrote more than 1,000 songs in a wide range of genera like funk, soul, jazz, heavy metal, punk, and disco, amongst others.
His lyrics were very diverse and talked about various topics. In this exercise, you will discover the most used words in his songs lyrics and some of the emotions that he showed through some of his songs.
1. Download the file prince_data.csv from Blackboard.
2. In R-Studio create a new R program with the following code. Make sure to insert your own R code in the red markings of the code below.
#set the working directory setwd(-c:\YourPath\YourFolder-)
# for nrc and afinn lexicons install.packages(-textdata-)
#load the necessary libraries to run the analysis
#remembr to install the libraries first if you have not done so library(tidytext)
library(dplyr) library(stringr) library(wordcloud2) library(sentimentr) library(ggplot2)
# Read the dataset that contains the lyrics to Princes songs prince.df – read.csv(-prince_data.csv-)
#get the “nrc” lexicon ***Note that you will have to install the library for the first time before running this line ***
get_sentiments(-nrc-)
#create a token of words – separate the sentences into individual words #put the token of words in a variable named princeTable
Insert your code here

#filter “joy” sentiments from the nrc lexicon
nrc_joy – get_sentiments(-nrc-) % % filter(sentiment == -joy-)
#filter “fear” sentiments form the nrc lexicon
nrc_fear – get_sentiments(-nrc-) % % filter(sentiment == -fear-)
#filter all the words from princeTable that are part of the album “Purple Rain” and place them in a variable named prince_album
Insert your code here
# merge Prince’s album words with the joy words from nrc and count them.
Place the results into a variable named prince_joy
prince_joy – prince_album % % inner_join(nrc_joy) % % count(word, sort
= TRUE)
# merge Prince’s album words with the fear words from nrc and count them. Place the results into a variable named prince_fear
Insert your code here
#create a word cloud for the “joy” words in Prince’s “Purple Rain” album Insert your code here
#create a word cloud for the “fear” words in Prince’s “Purple Rain” album Insert your code here
3. Create a MS-Word document. Take screen shots of the R code (take as many to show the whole code) also, convert both word clouds to .jpeg* files and insert them in your Word document as pictures.
*Use the “Export” option on R-Studio’s Viewer Tab to save the image as .jpeg

Motivation and Guidance??Error! Filename not specified.
“‘Nearly certain’: Jeremy Grantham calls ‘super bubble’ in stocks”
by Erik Schatzker, Australian Financial Review, Jan 21, 2022 (1)
“Ray Dalio says minimise cash, bond holdings”
by Nathan Crooks Australian Financial Review, Jan 5, 2022 (2)
As the seemingly contradictory opinions from two famous and successful investors indicate – one saying stocks are over-priced, the other saying to minimise cash and bond-holdings – identifying good investments is difficult, perhaps more in the present world circumstances. However, market participants need to form a view. This assignment is aimed at developing your investment competency.
How to begin?
The price of any asset reflects the forces of supply and demand. Forecasting the value of a particular asset, therefore, requires one to judge whether supply will outpace, lag or equal demand over the period leading to the date for which one is forecasting value. Your task is to identify the elements that drive supply and demand and explain your reasoning clearly.
Your answer should be supported by thorough and well-cited research of the industries, companies, and global environment. You will not suffer from a lack of information. Some news reports and other material will be available on the LMS site, which is intended only as a guide. You are expected to conduct additional research in identifying other relevant material.
The challenge will be integrating all the available material, weighing up the sometimes contradictory evidence, and providing a well-reasoned conclusion as clearly as possible. Talk with as many people as possible, including your peers in the unit. The more you engage with the material and the earlier you start writing (and revising) the assignment, the more benefit you will get out of it. What you should aim for is a clear, well set out piece of analysis with a well-argued conclusion that is easy to read . Do not confuse certainty for clarity. You may be tempted to downplay some evidence against your forecast or conclusion because it makes your predicted outcome less obviously the right one.
Assignment Questions ??
Specific Requirements:
a) Do you expect the S&P/ASX200 to outperform the return on Australian 10-year Government bonds over the period 30 April 2022 and 31 December 2022? Justify your answer (Weighting: 30%of assignment mark)
b) The S&P/ASX20 Index comprises the 20 largest companies by market capitalisation. If you had $1 million to invest in any combination of the ASX20 and government bonds where the lowest possible allocation for any company is 0% and the highest is 100% (which means you have just one company in your portfolio), what combination would you select to maximise expected return over the period 30 April 2022 and 31 December 2022? (Weighting: 50% of assignment mark)
c) Pick a publicly traded investment (i.e., one an observable daily price) that you expect to have the best chance of out-performing the S&P/ASX20 index between 20 April 2022 and 31 December 2022. Present your reasoning in support in just 400 words. You cannot pick a company in the S&P/ASX20 (Weighting: 20% of assignment mark)
Note: that whilst the total weightings add to 100%, 20% of marks are for presentation
Guidelines and checklist ?Error! Filename not specified.
Further guidance on the assignment will be given in lectures.
A few articles giving the opinion of market commentators are included in the -resources- section. They are intended to give you a sense of the factors that you should consider in your analysis. They are not chosen because the lecturer thinks they are the best articles on the subject, only that they happen to related to the assignment and have bee published recently. You will need to do your own further research.
