Application of Systems Development Life’s Cycle (SDLC) approach to Hoosier Burger.
According to Valacich, George and Hoffer, 2011, SDLC approach to Hoosier Burger include planning and selecting of accurate systems to use in the firm. This enabled the Burger firm improve on order taking, managing reporting systems and controlling the inventory. The firm then analyses the system that fits in the firm. During analysis, the firm concentrates on its business facts. When the system undergoes analysis and the firm approves the system, the firm designs the system according to the best laid down procedures. The last step is to implement the system in the firm and the system starts to operate, hence becoming the working system of the firm.
According to Valacich, George and Hoffer, 2011, the ordering system is one of an example of a component in the Hoosier Burger scenario. The ordering system, managing report system and inventory system, link to provide the customer and the business profits. The business provides customers with quality services, which then makes the business get profits.
Decompose Hoosier Burger into its main subsystems.
According to Valacich, George and Hoffer, 2011, four cardinal subsystems make up Hoosier Burger. The systems include taking of orders, inventory, preparing food and report management. The food storage area under food preparation helps to store perishable foods. The inventory and report management helps to keep the right amount of stock that the firm needs. The inventory also helps to keep the customer order in check that when he orders at the counter, he gets the best service.
Approach that Hoosier Burger needs to adopt.
The book by Valacich, George and Hoffer, 2011, discusses a variety of approaches that Hoosier Burger can adopt. They include RAD, SDLC and JAD. Through thorough reading, I would prefer the Hoosier Burger to use the SDLC approach. Compared to the other approaches, SDLC involves thorough steps followed with the series of phases that lead to the establishment of an operating system that suit Hoosier Burger.
