The MIS capstone course was basically every previous MIS course intertwined into one, a perfect way to close the book in the MIS program. There were quite a few similarities to the project done in MIS 3506, such as preparing a charter, scope, and prototype. Documentation as far as status reports like MIS 3535, process model and data model from MIS 2502, and the systems architecture from MIS 2501.
My team and I developed a prototype for a new reservation application called Dibs. Dibs is a holistic service provider that attempts to enhance the dining experience for customers. Dibs will enable users to make reservations at their favourite restaurants, browse the menu and pre-order their food, and provide their preference for the type of service they receive.
The project was very challenging because compared to MIS 3506, we had to start this project from scratch and brainstorm our own ideas. For the project to be successful we had to spend a lot of time developing the scope of the project and perfecting our business case to insure we had a viable solution to our idea. We had a team of 5 and split up the work to make the project run seamless and effectively and in the end it was very successful as we were picked to present at the MIS Capstone showcase.
