Project Target:  Healthcare Industry. Objective: Research access control systems/implementations that are in place in hospitals (choose any hospital/s or healthcare provider/s). Review current literature (articles, white papers, books: use google scholar) relating to type of access control systems/framework that are in use to include documented issues from your sources.Focus: In sum, the focus of this project should be management or technical issues relating to access control systems in use for the chosen company/organization/agency. The focus could be a technical issue (framework in use, cloud provider, etc.) or a non-technical issue such as policy, continuity of operations, or administrative/management, to name a few. The group will identify the issue for this project by conducting initial research.My personal guidance and recommendation: The group will meet regularly and discuss what they have found during their individual (initial) research. A lead should be chosen to begin drafting an outline for follow-on research once an organization is identified for this study/project. You should be in constant communication with your group to avoid replication of work or research; this will delay work. The outline can also be used to assign team members their portion of the paper/research to write. Just some thoughts…Things to consider:Choose your sources wisely by staying within the focus of your paper.From your research, identify the access control systems/frameworks that are in use, and discuss the pros and cons. This discussion will be drawn from your personal knowledge (professional and/or academic experience)!What do the sources say about the implemented access control systems/frameworks worthy to include in your paper? (e.g. known issues with the technology being used, cost-effectiveness, training issues, management, etc.). This is an open-ended question, meaning, you should include any information the sources identify to be a problem.Do the sources identify specific weaknesses or other access control-related issues?  Are the issues specifically related to the company/organization that is the focus of your project? Identify this/these issues and discuss how you would improve them. Please remember that issues could be technical or non-technical in nature (e.g. technology being used, implementation, or administration).Have you found evidence from your sources of assessment failures or risk management issues relating to access control mechanisms during your research? If so, discuss them.Have you found evidence from your sources of business continuity and/or disaster recovery issues relating to access controls (or the management thereof) during your research? If so, discuss them.Review the project evaluation rubric!

Case Study 2: Design Process Due Week 4 and worth 90 pointsYou have recently started your own software design company. You discover that your local DMV is looking to build a system that will allow receptionists to check customers in quickly. They would like for the system to allow customers to self-check-in during busy times, but have receptionists check customers in the rest of the time. Your company puts a bid in for the project and wins. Read the article located at http://www.bcs.org/upload/pdf/ewic_hc07_lppaper18.pdf.Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:Suggest the prototyping technique you would use for this system and support your rationale.Create a management plan containing eight to ten (8-10) stages for proper design of such a system. Explain each stage of the management plan and justify your rationale.Estimate the length of time it will take to complete each stage of the management plan.Compare and contrast the self-check-in interface with the interface a receptionist would use.Use Microsoft Visio or an open source alternative, Dia, to create a total of two (2) graphical representations of your proposed interfaces, one (1) for the self-check-in and one (1) for the receptionist. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.Include charts or diagrams created in Excel, Visio, MS Project, or one of their equivalents such as Open Project, Dia, and OpenOffice. The completed diagrams/charts must be imported into the Word document before the paper is submitted. The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:Analyze and evaluate interface design models.Develop an interface design plan that addresses and solves a proposed business problem.Use technology and information resources to research issues in human-computer interaction.Write clearly and concisely about HCI topics using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions.
