Page 1 of 7 School of Science ISYS 1106/08 Software Engineering Project Management Group Assignment Assessment Type: In a group of 4-5 (no individual submissions will be accepted). Assignment: Submit online via Canvas → Assignments → Group Assignment. Clarifications/updates may be made via announcements/relevant discussion forums. Contributions Form: Submit online via Canvas → Assignments → Contributions Form. Each student will a receive final mark based on a final mark for the project and their individual contribution. Due date for the Assignment submission: 5:00pm, 11 October 2019 (Friday of Week 11). As this is a major assignment in which you demonstrate your understanding, a university standard late penalty of 10% per each working day applies for up to 5 working days late, unless special consideration has been granted. Presentation: During Week 12, i.e., 14 – 18 October 2019. No presentation = no marks. Due date for the Contributions Form submission: 5:00pm, 18 October 2019 (Friday of Week 12). Weighting: 25 marks (worth 25% of the total score) 1. Overview For this assignment, assume that you are a Scrum team working on a software development project. The scenario presented below covers a large system. Not all of its features are required to be implemented within the assignment, but they all have to be covered in Project Charter and Product Backlog as that will determine the timeline of the project, if it were to happen in real life. You will be writing code to create the software along with the important project management documents. Some specific details on the software/product are not known at the start, these will emerge during the project. This is very close to real life projects. You must register your group using the Google Forms (Guidelines will be provided in Canvas → Announcements). The deadline for registration is Sunday 28 July 2019. No registration == No submission. Page 2 of 7 Scenario: Consider a parcel delivery company that has drivers who perform same day pickup and delivery (P&D) of parcels in metropolitan Melbourne. The company wants a easy-to-use web interface to book P&D jobs and to analyse statistics on the bookings, driver performance, customers’ usage, etc. Jobs should be automatically dispatched by the system to the closest driver on the day. The company also wants easy-to-use Android and iOS apps for drivers: Drivers should receive job details, report back to the central system the job status, as well as see own statistics on the completed bookings, performance, etc. Customers can sign-up (once) and login (regularly) via a web site, and from there they can book P&D jobs, check the status of individual jobs, and view the history of all jobs they have booked. The system sends monthly invoices for the jobs completed during the previous month. Jobs are charged based on number of kilometres between the pick-up and delivery addresses. Drivers can login to the app on their smartphone (usually at the start of the day) which will inform the centralised system of their location, so that their jobs can be dispatched. Drivers can view the details of the jobs allocated to them, as well as update the details of a job when they pick up the parcel, and again when they deliver the parcel. Drivers logout of their apps at the end of their day to inform the system not to send them any further jobs. The app will periodically (no less than every 2 minutes, if the vehicle is moving) send the drivers GPS location coordinates back to the central system, and will also do so when a job status changes or a driver logs in or out of the system. Managers can view reports of delivery statistics overall, as well as by driver and by customer. Managers can also reassign jobs from one driver to another if an exceptional issue occurs (e.g., vehicle breakdown). Managers reconcile customer payments against invoices, and can issue late payment penalties each fortnight that the invoice is late in being paid. After two late penalties the third time the unpaid invoice is handed over to a debt collector, and the customer account is suspended. When you are working on the assignment: 1) If you have questions on the assignment tasks and/or the corresponding course material, you might • bring these questions to weekly consultation sessions held by lecturer, or • post them in the discussion board Assignment folder, or • come to the Assignment feedback sessions – these will be held during week(s) 6, 8, 10 and 11. In the meantime please bring questions to weekly consultation sessions held by lecturer or post in the discussion board Assignment folder. Please prepare your questions for the session properly, as this is planed not as pre-check of your work before you submit, but as opportunity to answer your questions on the material and to clarify your doubts. 2) Your team must perform 3 sprints to complete the software development. Here is what needs to be done: • Each sprint must start with a sprint planning meeting. This is where your team will get together and decide which features are to be completed in the sprint. The subsequent sprint planning meetings will also need to focus on carry over from the previous sprints. • At the end of each sprint you are to produce potentially shippable product and sprint retrospective notes. • You have to use Trello for all planning notes. • Sprint 1: Weeks 6+7, Sprint 2: Weeks 8+9, Sprint 3: Weeks 10+11 3) Each of the sprint you will require to have: • Sprint planning notes • Sprint backlog • Sprint retro notes • Potentially shippable product The first two items are easy to produce as they will be Word or pdf documents however the proof of potentially shippable product is a bit tricky: Whatever you produce at the end of the sprint, keep those files separate in a directory and when you start the new sprint, make a copy of those files and work on the new set of copied files, i.e., DO NOT overwrite the set of files from the earlier sprint. If you do, there will be no proof of what you produced at the end of the sprint. 4) It is best that you work in an incremental manner and not in all in one go as during lab tests, you will be asked to show the proof (details will be announced in Canvas → Assignments). Page 3 of 7 2. Assessment Criteria This assessment will determine your ability to: 1. Follow Scrum methodology to manage a software development project, also using project management tools. 2. Write relevant documentation by recalling concepts taught in class, understanding and applying concepts relevant to solution, analysing components of the problem, evaluating different approaches. 3. Ability to provide references where due. 4. Meeting deadlines. 5. Seeking clarification from your “supervisor” (instructor) when needed via discussion forums. 3. Learning Outcomes This assessment is relevant to the following Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs): • CLO 1: Illustrate a working knowledge of how to plan, execute and close projects to required standards • CLO 2: Use a range of proprietary and non-proprietary project management tools to carry out and report on your team projects • CLO 3: Use project management frameworks that ensure successful outcomes • CLO 4: Analyse and apply critical project management concepts, such as: Why Projects Fail; Project Governance and Methodologies; Software Development Life Cycles – From Waterfall to Agile; Software Engineering Fundamentals; Software Requirements Engineering as basis for Project Management; Hybrid methodologies; Planning and Scheduling; Risk and Issues Management; Quality Assurance; Change Management; Release Management; Service Delivery and Support; The Team Dynamic; Collaboration and Communication skills; Organisations, People and Culture • CLO 5: Apply critical analysis, problem solving, and team facilitation skills to software engineering project management processes using real-world scenarios. 4. Assessment details Note: Please ensure that you have read sections 1-3 of this document before going further. Marking guide (please
also check the corresponding rubrics): Presentation content and product 6 marks Charter 3 marks Product Backlog 3 marks Sprint Backlogs 3 marks Sprint planning and retro notes 3 marks User story cards 4 marks Burn-down chart 3 marks TOTAL: 25 marks Page 4 of 7 Your group must submit ONE zipped file. The following directory structure must be used to create file system for submission: • Charter (you have been provided with a template) • Product Backlog (you have been provided with a template) • Burn-down chart • User Story cards (a directory containing 8 detailed user story cards) • Sprint 1 • SprintPlanningNotes (you have been provided with a template) • SprintBacklog (a directory containing Trello screeshots of your sprint backlog) • SprintRetroNotes (you have been provided with a template) • Product (a directory containing potentially shippable product at the end of the print) • Test cases and results of testing (a spread sheet containing all test cases to test the Product developed within Sprint 1 and the corresponding test results) • Sprint 2 • SprintPlanningNotes • SprintBacklog • SprintRetroNotes • Product • Test cases and results of testing • Sprint 3 • SprintPlanningNotes • SprintBacklog • SprintRetroNotes • Product • Test cases and results of testing Note: Each of the above document will also be marked for its professional presentation and writing standards. Your group must attend a presentation during Week 12 to demo the assignment. NO PRESENTATION == NO MARKS for this assignment. At the presentation you will be required not only to present the developed product, but also to cover the following questions: • How would you justify the priorities you have in your backlog? • Why it was better to have the select task allocation for Sprints 1-3? • What other possible solutions would be reasonable? Page 5 of 7 Note, that even when the assignment will be marked as a whole, the marks will be provided individually: Each student will a receive final mark based on a final mark for the project and their contribution. Students will need to agree on contribution fractions – each group will be required to submit the corresponding form by 5pm, 18 October 2019 (Friday of Week 12), see Canvas → Assignments → Contributions Form. This will be moderated if necessary. Here are some examples: 1. An excellent project, assessed at 25/25. Five students in the group, all students contributed equally, all students get a mark of 25. 2. A good project, assessed as 20/25. Five students in the group. Contributions were not equal: – students A and B contributed each 20%, – students C and D contributed each 15%, – student D contributed 30% of the overall work. There are 100 marks to be distributed: 20*5 = 100. Students A and B will receive for this assignment 20 marks each: min(100*0.2, 25) = min (20, 25) = 20. Students C and D will receive for this assignment 25 marks each: min(100*0.15, 25) = min (15, 25) = 15, Student D will receive 25 marks: min(100*0.3, 25) = min (30, 25) = 25. 3. A good project, assessed as 18/25. Five students in the group. Contributions were not equal: – students A and B contributed each 25%, – students C and D contributed each 20%, – student D contributed 10% of the overall work. There are 90 marks to be distributed: 18*5 = 90. Students A and B will receive for this assignment 22.5 marks each: min(90*0.25, 25) = min (22.5, 25) = 22.5. Students C and D will receive for this assignment 18 marks each: min(90*0.2, 25) = min (18, 25) = 18. Student D will receive 9 marks: min(90*0.1, 25) = min (9, 25) = 9. Page 6 of 7 5. Referencing guidelines What: This is a group assignment and all submitted contents must be your own. If you have used sources of information other than the contents directly under Canvas→Modules, you must give acknowledge the sources and give references using IEEE referencing style. Where: Add a code comment near the work to be referenced and include the reference in the IEEE style. How: To generate a valid IEEE style reference, please use the citethisforme tool if unfamiliar with this style. Add the detailed reference before any relevant code (within code comments). 6. Submission format Submit one .zip file online via Canvas → Assignments → Group Assignment. It is the responsibility of the student to correctly submit their files. Please verify that your submission is correctly submitted by downloading what you have submitted to see if the files include the correct contents. 7. Academic integrity and plagiarism (standard warning) Academic integrity is about honest presentation of your academic work. It means acknowledging the work of others while developing your own insights, knowledge and ideas. You should take extreme care that you have: • Acknowledged words, data, diagrams, models, frameworks and/or ideas of others you have quoted (i.e. directly copied), summarised, paraphrased, discussed or mentioned in your assessment through the appropriate referencing methods, • Provided a reference list of the publication details so your reader can locate the source if necessary. This includes material taken from Internet sites. If you do not acknowledge the sources of your material, you may be accused of plagiarism because you have passed off the work and ideas of another person without appropriate referencing, as if they were your own. RMIT University treats plagiarism as a very serious offence constituting misconduct. Plagiarism covers a variety of inappropriate behaviours, including: • Failure to properly document a source • Copyright material from the internet or databases • Collusion between students For further information on our policies and procedures, please refer to the University website. 8.
