COT20255 | Reliable Training Centre (RTC) | IT

Case Study: Reliable Training Centre (RTC)

The Reliable Training Centre (RTC) started 20 years ago with 10 staff members.  It provides basic security officer training in various major capital cities in Australia (eg. Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Canberra, Perth). The RTC’s head office is located in Melbourne. Now, it employs about 30 highly skilled trainers and 20 administration and support staff.

RTC is open five days a week from Monday to Friday. The RTC offers nationally accredited security officer training programs.  Over the years, RTC training gained reputation for its curriculum, training methods and highly qualified staff.    Many aspiring candidates have completed security officer programs at RTC with the intention to find employment in banking and other sectors.  

The program lasts four weeks involving 20 full days of training from 9am to 6pm. All centres in all major cities run the course 12 times a year, i.e. once a month between January and December. A program usually starts on a Monday and ends on a Friday of week-4. 

At the moment, RTC records their employees’ details, Students, Courses, Enrolments, Payments, Class schedules and Grades manually.  Although, this system is working fine, recording data in the manual system is laborious and time consuming. Moreover, RTC is unable to provide quick answers to several questions including: (1) Total number of students who have completed the security program so far (2) Number of students enrolled at each site (3) Busy periods (4) Amount generated through security programs at each site and so on. 

RTC records bookings/registrations through walk-in enquiries, postal mails, faxes, and emails. Through the paper-copy course brochure, all prospective students can select which dates they want to attend from the list of available programs, dates and provide their details to register as a student in the program. Students can select to be trained at a RTC office located in any preferred Australian capital city.

At the time of registration, students are required to make payment by cash or credit card.  In case of phone bookings, students are required to complete Payment form providing their credit card details or attach a cheque to it before sending it through to RTC for processing. The receipt will be sent to the student by post within 5 working days. In case of enrolment cancellations, students will be charged 12% of total fee.

At this point of time, RTC only runs two nationally accredited basic certificate programs which cost $10,000 per individual trainee per program. Any group or corporation that sends more than 1 but up to 4 students in a single booking/registration will be granted a 5% discount in a payment, 5 to 10 students 20% discount, and 11 or more students 30% discount.

There are eight subjects to complete in both programs. There are two assignments per subject. Students must pass all the assignments in all eight subjects to qualify for a certificate. Occasionally, some students who are sick or have another commitment cannot complete an assignment in time. All assignments are marked on a 100% weighting. Guidelines for grading are: (1) award a ‘Fail’ grade for any subject average mark in the range of 0%-49%; (2) award a ‘Pass’ grade for any subject average mark in the range of 50%-100%; and (3) award a ‘Result Outstanding’ grade for any students who cannot complete and submit a particular assignment in time with an approved extension.

Marks are recorded in RTC’s grades register but grades are made known and given to students in transcripts on completion. A student transcript records results of all subject assignments as ‘Pass’, ‘Fail’, or ‘Result Outstanding’. To complete the course and be awarded a certificate, it is compulsory for all students to clear all assignments within the specified timeline.

The RTC management team believes that a computerised system will not only help them to record the transactions easily but also help them to generate reports to understand the total number of students completed programs so far, no of enrolments at each campus, peak times, payments received/outstanding, total revenue generated, etc.  In addition to this, they believe that an ERP system would be helpful in minimising inconsistencies with data and be able to manage cash flows effectively. The RTC management is keen to use the technology and implement an ERP system with the help of an expert (you) to manage their operations. 

Your Task:

For this assessment, you will develop a report for “Reliable Training Centre (RTC)”, which includes:

  • An argument to persuade management that an ERP is required,
  • Feasibility analysis,
  • Issues that may arise due to incomplete elicitation of requirements and misalignment between the business processes and organisational strategy
  • Risks associated  with BPR and ERP customisation
  • Current business processes
  • Proposed changes to the business processes

Persuade management that an ERP is required.  Your argument should consider at least:

  • The reason for organisational change,
  • Alignment of an ERP with the organisation’s goals.
  • Benefits and limitations of ERPs in the context of this organisation, and
  • The organisational commitment, especially from management, for this organisation.

Remember that there is no right answer or recommendation. Successful arguments can be made for many options. Your task is to present a persuasive and argumentative piece of writing in report form.  From your research and discussions in the report, you are expected to draw and justify your own conclusions.

For this assignment, you are required to use academic literature to support and illustrate your report.  It is important that you look at how issues and potential problems inter-relate and explain the linkages in order to present the risks/issues.   It is up to you to explain and justify why the risks you identify may be a problem.  Use literature to develop your recommendations for strategies or actions that can avoid or mitigate the risks.  Be aware that it may not be possible to avoid or mitigate all risks.

                                                                                                callnow Button

Your audience are non-technical. However, you can assume your readers are intelligent people who understand business arguments.  Remember that there is no single right answer that will address all risks and recommendations.  It is your choice to nominate which of the risks you believe are the most critical and up to you to select the most appropriate mitigation strategies for your recommendations.  You will be assessed on your ability to persuade the reader, so it is essential that you develop factual and logical arguments in your risk and recommendation justifications.

Hints:

Your report should include an Executive summary, Table of contents, Introduction, Discussion, Conclusion and recommendations.

You must use trade and academic literature to inform and support your report.  A minimum of 10 references (sources published 2012 or later) are required, at least 5 of which must be from academic sources (journal, conference or edited book chapter papers). Failure to include these will result in a deduction of marks. A high achieving student will probably have between 15 and 20 references. 

What you should submit:

You are required to submit your report as a Microsoft Word document.

Assessment 2: Case Study

Instructions to Students

This assessment task can be undertaken in groups of up to three students per group. You need to list your group members in the introduction to the report. You should use the provided report template to help you structure the report (see Learner Resources for the subject). Each student needs to attach a copy of the group report to their assessment summary when they hand in their tasks

Scenario

You are working as an IT System & Network Engineer at Perfect Technology. You have been given a project to design a server to a new customer called First Couriers Pty Ltd.

First Couriers Pty Ltd is a courier service agency. Currently First Couriers has got 2 Windows 2008 workgroup servers (one in each office) and two network printers. Management is planning to open two new branches in Werribee & Thomastown and planning to have 5 more computers and a Printer each.

Each of the Werribee and Thomastown sites will have a network switch to provide interconnection to all the devices within each office, and a WAN link of 1 Gbps will be used to link the two sites together. You have been told that there are ports available on both switches to connect a server if required. Spare network cables are also available, so these do not need to be purchased. You have also been told that the new server should be located in the Werribee office, as there are more employees connecting in at the Werribee office

The management wants to make IT management simple since they don’t have a full-time IT support officer. Mr. Jones, the First Couriers Office Manager, has been designated as the customer contact for you do discuss specific requirements. Mr. Jones has also made it clear that the implementation budget for this new server is $10,000 (includes both hardware, software, and labour costs). Mr Jones will be the person who will arrange your access to the site, and the client person who will sign your work off once you have completed the installation of the server. You will need to confirm any out-of-hours access to the site you require with Mr. Jackson, the facilities manager, who is responsible for physical security for the site overall.

You have costed your labour costs at $2000, and your software licensing costs at $2000. That leaves $6,000) for server hardware. Preliminary analysis by your colleagues has identified the Dell Power Edge T440 Tower Server as a good fit for First Courier.

First Couriers also has 500 GB of data on their old Windows 2008 servers, and they want to make sure that they can migrate that data onto the new servers. They will keep the old Windows 2008 servers, but they want to make sure they will not lose any data in the migration exercise.

First Couriers has approached Perfect Technology to provide a solution to manage their IT needs easily.

You as an IT System Engineer must prepare a design report and submit it to First Couriers for their feedback. Once the client agreed to the design, you will have to install and setup the servers.

Assessment Resources ICTNWK505

First Couriers are very security conscious and want to know what security measures exist in the server to secure their environment.

First Couriers are also very safety conscious and want to make sure all work on their servers is done in a way that is consistent with all applicable workplace health and safety requirements. You should also explain how any risks encountered in implementing the server will be managed.

First Courier currently run a SQL Server 2012 application, and want to know whether this will run on the new server.

First Courier want to be able to monitor hardware resource usage by the server, and to be able to sop and start network services as needed. They are unsure as to whether they need a third party application for this and would like your advice.

In your design report, you must propose to implement a Windows domain network and run a local active directory server with DHCP, DNS, File Server and other services. You also need to provide details of server applications compatibility issues and resolution procedures.

                                                                                              callnow Button

Following tasks must be done to finish the design report

  1. Identify the client, and verify the requirements that the client has expressed in this case study
  2. Address the business problems, opportunities, scope, objectives and budget. (For this task, you should write down what you believe the key business problem to address is with the server installation, and also think how you would orally question/confirm this with Mr. Jones (as your trainer will question you about this in the classroom or labs).
  3. Specify the server specifications.
  4. Specify the required network services.
  5. List the server applications
  6. Identify and document server applications compatibility issues and resolution procedures
  7. List the security requirements, including authentication and authorization.
  8. Plan and explain redundancies.
  9. Produce the installation check list.
  10. Identify any required third-party applications that are required to meet the customer requirements
  11. Describe how the new server will be implemented, and whether any prototyping of the solution will be done. You should also produce a design of your server implementation, documenting which services will be installed on the server
  12. Analyse and describe data migration methods required for the client.
  13. Develop test plans to check system requirement
  14. Develop test plan to check the performance
  15. Describe how you will ensure the work is completed according to WHS requirements, including any risk management procedures needed
  16. Explain the work sign-off procedure to the customer, including any cleanup required of the worksite and handover procedures
  17. Describe a backup and restore strategy for the server

ASSESSMENT 3 – LAB

Instructions to students:

Read through the scenario, complete the assigned tasks, and take screen prints as directed and attach to your assessment resources summary to prove you completed the labs as required.

General comments about labs

  • Always prepare a test plan to test your configurations
  • When working with electrical equipment, you should keep the WHS requirements in mind for real life installations. See Managing Electrical risks in the workplace (in Learner Resources)
  • Troubleshoot your configurations as required, using operating system help utilities, information sources (such as Google) and Learner resources as required.
  • Don’t forget to save your evidence into your workbook as we go

Requirements:

  1. You will install Windows 2012 in a virtual machine running on VM Workstation on one of the computers in the level 10 labs (rooms 4 and 5)
  2. Note that the install files for Windows 2012 Server are present in the c:\lab-files folder. You will also need to enter a 25 digit product key during the install process. The product key you need is: D2N9P-3P6X9-2R39C-7RTCD-MDVJX.
  3. You should install Windows 2012 Server with the GUI option, and you also should configure static IP parameters for the server.
  4. To secure your server, you should make a new Admin1 account, and set a secure password on the account.
  5. You should set your hostname/computer name to Snnnnn (where Snnnnn is your student id)
  6. You should set the IP address to 192.168.1.1, the subnet mask to 255.255.255.0, and the default gateway to 192.168.1.254. (you need the static address because you are going to install network services like DNS and DHCP in later labs)
  7. You also need to ensure your operating system code is secure and up to date. The easiest way to do this is go into Windows Update and set updates to automatic. This ensures critical security patches are automatically installed on your server, which would be appropriate given First Couriers want a low maintenance solution

Once you have completed the install and configured Windows Update as described above, take a screen shot of Windows Update on the server to show the updates being automatically applied and attach it to your assessment resources summary. The screen shot should look similar to that below.

Lab 2 Setting up DNS

Requirement. Your need to set up a DNS Server on the Windows 2012 Server instance you installed in Lab 1. You need to add DNS server as a feature in Server Manager, and then create a forward lookup zone called Snnnnn.com (where Snnnnn is your student id). You also need to create a single host record (A type) for the Windows 2012 server IP address (192.168.1.1) you set up in lab 1

Requirement. Your need to set up a DHCP Server on the Windows 2012 Server instance you installed in Lab 1.

You need to create a DHCP scope for the address range 192.168.1.100 – 192.168.1.120, and activate it for use.

Lab 4 Setting up SMTP Relay service

Requirement. Your need to set up an SMTP relay on the Windows 2012 Server instance you installed in Lab 1. The reason you are doing this is that the client wants emails forwarded for a particular domain to another mail server in their network.

You need to create an SMTP relay to forward SMTP email where the domain name is Snnnnn (where nnnnn is your student id)

Lab 5 Setting up FTP Server service

Requirement. Your need to set up an FTP site on the Windows 2012 Server instance you installed in Lab 1.

You need to install FTP Server and create a single FTP site called SnnnnnFTP (where nnnnn is your student id)

Once you have completed the lab as described above, take a screen shot of the site on the server to attach it to your assessment resources summary. The screen shot should look similar to that below. Note: your student id should show, not S12345

Lab 6 Configuring Windows Firewall

Requirement. Your need to add a rule to the Windows Firewall on the server you installed in Lab 1 to allow incoming traffic on port 1045. This is because the customer has advised you that an in-house application is using that port and needs to be enabled

Set up a new Windows Firewall rule called SnnnnnFirewallRule (where nnnnn is your student id) to allow incoming traffic on port 1045.

You need to install FTP Server and create a single FTP site called SnnnnnFTP (where nnnnn is your student id)

Once you have completed the lab as described above, take a screen shot of the firewall rule on the server to attach it to your assessment resources summary. The screen shot should look similar to that below. Note: your student id should show, not S12345

Lab 7 Troubleshoot a customer problem

Requirement. You have received notification from a colleague that he is unable to connect to the network because he is getting an error message that there is an IP conflict (duplicate address) with a printer in the customer’s network that has address 192.168.1.115. You need to make a configuration change to DHCP so that error no longer occurs, i.e. the address 192.168.1.115 is no longer given out by your DHCP server.

Make the change so that the DHCP server no longer gives out the IP address 192.168.1.115. You also have to complete a problem report form (see below) advising the customer that the problem as been resolved.

Once you have completed the lab as described above, take a screen shot of the configuration change on the server to attach it to your assessment resources summary. It should look similar to that below

You should also complete the form below, and paste into your workbook for evidence

Incident Report 23/January 30, 2018
number/date of incident
Reported Problem Duplicate IP address on network
Problem Contact Mr. Jones, Office Manager, F
Action taken to resolve (briefly describe the action you took to resolve the problem)
problem
Date of Action (put the date of your lab here)
Engineer Signature (Sign here)

Lab 8 Backup/Restore and Scheduling

Requirement. As part of your high availability strategy for the server, you are installing Windows Backup Server on the server. You are also setting up a scheduled task on the server to copy a folder C:\DATA to C:\BACKUP every night at 10PM

Install Windows Backup Server on the Windows 2012 Server you set up earlier. Use the task scheduler to create a task that copies the contents of C:\DATA to C:\BACKUP every night at 10PM (NB to test this, you will need to create the folders first)

Once you have installed Windows Backup Server on the server, take a screen shot of the configuration for evidence. It should look similar to that below.

Assessment Resources ICTNWK505

Once you have set up the scheduled task, take a screenshot for evidence. It should look similar to that below

Lab 9 – Performance Monitoring

Requirement. First Couriers have reported that the server is running slowly. You need to log into the server and set up a performance monitor on CPU usage, to see whether that could be the performance problem

Go into Performance Monitor on the server, and set up a real time counter to monitor CPU usage

Once you have installed the performance counter on the server, take a screen shot of the configuration for evidence. It should look similar to that below

Section 2: Submission Details

This online submission MUST BE submitted as a word document. PDF submissions will not be accepted.

Issues that will affect your marks include:

  1. Make sure you create your own cover sheet with the names of the students in the group clearly indicated. Please do not include the marking criteria or rubrics or marking sheet in your assessment. Your grader will include a separate feedback and marking sheet after they have graded your assessment in Moodle.
  2. Where copying from other sources results in high percentage similarity, marks will be deducted as shown on the mark-sheet. Therefore, proper use of in-text referencing is important. Avoid direct quotes.

Turnitin will be used to check percentage similarity.

Do not copy the questions from the textbook, as this will increase your percentage similarity.

Under extreme circumstances where high % similarity indicates copying from written works of other students in CQU, other universities or any other institutions world-wide, the assignment will be reviewed by the academic misconduct board. If percentage similarity exceeds 20%, marks will be deducted based on a progressive scale as determined by the course co-ordinator. 

  1. Marks for each question are noted in Section 3 and totals 100 marks.

The assessment is worth 20% total assessment grade.

The final grade with criteria/rubric and marking criteria will be recorded on Moodle as a percentage of 20%.

  1. Penalty for late submission is 5% per calendar day including Saturday and Sunday.

Hardware Manager | Python

Assignment 1

Hardware List Maintenance

The goal here is to write some software that would assist a system administrator to maintain a list of IT hardware and owners. The assignment will get progressively more complex as it proceeds – the early stages will be reasonable straight forward and will be sufficient for a passing grade, and the more advanced stages are for those who wish to go further and target a higher overall result.

General Requirements

All assignments should be written in Python 3 and should run in IDLE. They can be written on any type of computer, but they should be able to be executed in the computer pool.

The highest marks will be for working code. However, in cases where there are problems, you will be assigned marks for how you approached the task. It is also expected that you will provide comments in the programs to explain how it works, and these comments will account for up to 10% of the overall grade.

Stage 1: Data Entry

Write a program which requests that the user enters a computer model, year purchased, blue plate number (a unique ID that will be used to identify the computer) and owner. Store that data in a List. After the user has entered data, request that the user enters Y or N to continue. If they enter N, print the list of models, years, owners and blue plate numbers to the screen. If they enter Y, repeat the first step.

Your program should produce the following result:

Hardware Manager
Computer Model: Acer Aspire 5
Purchase Year: 2018
Blue Plate: A87634
Owner: Gaye Deegan
Acer Aspire 5 (2018) A87634 has been recorded.
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) Y
Computer Model: Lenovo Yoga 520
Purchase Year: 2017
Blue Plate: G65438
Owner: Ben Martini
Lenovo Yoga 520 (2017) G65438 has been recorded.
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) N
1. Acer Aspire 5 (2018) A87634: Gaye Deegan
2. Lenovo Yoga 520 (2017) G65438: Ben Martini
Thankyou.

Stage 2: Validation

Building on stage 1, you now need to ensure that the program checks for valid entries in each case, and converts the text to the appropriate format.

You need to:

  • Ensure that a model, year, blue plate number and owner were entered, If any of these were not entered, do not record that item and go straight to asking if they wish to continue.
  • Ensure that the user enters either “Y”, “y”, “N” or “n” when asked if they wish to continue. Continue to ask until they enter a valid result.
  • For extra marks, (and this is challenging), ensure that the blue plate number consists of a letter followed by five numerals.

Sample output:

Hardware Manager
Computer Model: Acer Aspire 5
Purchase Year: 2018
Blue Plate: A87634
Owner: Gaye Deegan
Acer Aspire 5 (2018) A87634 has been recorded.
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) yes
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) y
Computer Model:
No record has been recorded.
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) Y
Computer Model: Lenovo Yoga 520
Purchase Year: 2017
Blue Plate: G65438
Owner: Ben Martini
Lenovo Yoga 520 (2017) G65438 has been recorded.
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) N
1. Acer Aspire 5 (2018) A87634: Gaye Deegan
2. Lenovo Yoga 520 (2017) G65438: Ben Martini
Thankyou.

Stage 3: Objects and Persistance

This involves two separate jobs:

  • Create a class to store the details of the record rather than using a List on its own. Employ the Class in your code.
  • Store the record details in a text file, and load then when next the program is launched.

Sample Output

Hardware Manager
Computer Model: Acer Aspire 5
Purchase Year: 2018
Blue Plate: A87634
Owner: Gaye Deegan
Acer Aspire 5 (2018) A87634 has been recorded.
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) N
1. Acer Aspire 5 (2018) A87634: Gaye Deegan
Thankyou.

Computer Model: Lenovo Yoga 520
Purchase Year: 2017
Blue Plate: G65438
Owner: Ben Martini
Lenovo Yoga 520 (2017) G65438 has been recorded.
Do you wish to enter another record? (Y/N) N
1. Acer Aspire 5 (2018) A87634: Gaye Deegan
2. Lenovo Yoga 520 (2017) G65438: Ben Martini
Thankyou.

Stage 4: Options and CSV

In this stage we need to add an optional “Export to CSV” option, along with the ability to choose to list existing entries and/or add a new one. The program should now ask the user to choose between 4 options: Add a new account, List existing accounts, Export to CSV, or Quit. If they do not choose one of those four options, they need to be asked again. If they choose Export, we need to output the data to accounts.csv. Otherwise we need to add, list or quite as required.

Now that things are getting more complex, you are expected to use functions to manage these tasks in your program.

Sample output:

Hardware Manager

    (L)ist existing records

    (E)xport to CSV

    (A)dd a new record

    (L)ist existing records

    (E)xport to CSV

    (Q)uit

Your choice: Q

Thankyou.

Stage 5: Deleting and Updating

For the last stage we need to make this a bit more general purpose by introducing methods to delete and update records. As we’re doing this, we will also need to record when events happen. Accordingly, you will need to add:

  • A date/time created property in the record.
  • A date/time updated property in the record.
  • An ability to delete a record, where the user enters the ID (number) of the record and it is removed after confirming the record with the user. You will need to learn how to delete an item from a List and to update the save file.
  • The ability to edit a record by changing the owner’s name. As with delete, the user will need to specify the ID of the record to be edited. If no ID is specified, or if the ID is incorrect, it will not continue.

Sample output:

Hardware Manager

    (A)dd a new record

    (L)ist existing records

    (C)hange owner
