5. The idea behind a project is that students should be able to access details of available placements via an intranet. When there is a placement opportunity for which they wish to be considered, they would be able to apply for it electronically. This would cause a copy of their CV, which would also be held on-line to be sent to the potential employer.

Details of interviews and placement offers would all be sent by e-mail. While some human intervention would be needed, the process would be automated as far as possible.

You are required to produce a business case report for such an application, which justifies the potential development by showing that the values of its potential benefits outweigh its development and operational costs.

Create lists of the main benefits and costs for the project. You do not have to specify actual figures, just the headings under which they would appear.


Salary of Manager : RM4000

Salary of Programmer : RM2500

Development cost : RM500-RM1000

Deployment cost : RM2500-RM3000

To build up a system and paying the wages for the employee, approximately total need RM10, 000 that needed to be invested.


Quantifiable: With the development, deployment and operation cost, programmers able to create a good quantity system.

Non-quantifiable: In order to let the student use the system, we must satisfy the student need.

So, as a conclusion, although costing is more than benefit, but it is worth to do so, this is because we could create a good and useful system, make student work easier and satisfy student need. That is worth for it by everything.
