What is interesting, valuable or original in this project?
2 single space
Objectives
Should be measurable using the result of this project. Objectives should be
Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound.
Example:
General Objective
To develop an Automated Piglet Feeder System using Electronic
Controller Board for Bulacan Agricultural State College.
2 single space
Specific Objectives
The development of Automated Piglet Feeder System using Electronic
Controller Board for Bulacan Agricultural State College should be able to:
1. first objective;
2. second objective; and
3. last objective.
2
Scope and Limitation
This will set your boundaries for the project. Scope deals with what your project
can do, while limitation deals with what your project can’t do.
2 single space
Definition of Terms
IT Term 1 – This is where the technical IT terms are discussed according to how
they are going to be used in the study.
IT Term 2 – This is where the technical IT terms are discussed according to how
they are going to be used in the study.
.
CHAPTER II
REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE
1 double space
This part will explain recent publications or studies that will support the project’s
purpose. It will not showcase what other people have done. This requires a minimum of
five (5) local and international literatures which covers studies within the last ten (10)
years. Every publication or study should be cited accordingly (Ex: According to
Author,MC).
CHAPTER III
METHODOLOGY
1 double space
Environment
For organization specific capstone projects, where population of the study,
organizational chart and profile is discuss.
2 single space
Requirements Specifications
This part will discuss the requirements set by the client (user of the
system/website/network). The Entity Relationship Diagram, Data Dictionary and other
necessary data may be used to aid in the discussion of the requirements.
2 single space
Operational Feasibility
Operational feasibility is a measure of how well a proposed system solves
the problems, and takes advantage of the opportunities identified during scope
definition and how it satisfies the requirements identified in the requirements
analysis phase of system development
2 single space
Technical Feasibility
This refers to the technical resources needed to develop, purchase, install
or operate the system.
5
Schedule Feasibility
The project can be finish and implemented in an acceptable time frame.

Gantt Chart/PERT CPM Chart
2 single space
Economic Feasibility
This will discuss the projected benefits of the proposed system.

Cost and Benefit Analysis

Cost Recovery Scheme
2 single space
Conceptual Framework
The purpose of this part is to discuss the conceptual framework that examines
information technology (IT) governance effectiveness, its determinants, and its impacts
on its client. This article describes how information systems in the human services can be
facilitated with a framework that addresses the fundamental roles of data, information
and knowledge in understanding organizational information systems.
Development Method
This part will discuss the method to be use in developing the project. For software
development, web development and game development it can either be structured (e.g.
Waterfall model), object-oriented or agile method (e.g. prototyping, iterative, spiral
model). For e-learning modules, instructional software design method (e.g. ADDIE
model, Extreme Programming etc.) is to be used. For network design and
implementation, discuss the network model to be used and the routing protocol to be
followed. The study may also be in line with the new trends today like the IoT ( Internet
of Things that can be implemented within the school vicinity.
Design of Software, Systems, and/or Processes
After setting the requirements, the student should discuss the design of their
projects whether it is software, system and/or processes using either of the
following:
A. Network Design and Implementation and Server Farm Configuration
and Management
1. Network Floor Layout
2. Routing Table
3. CAT Sheet
B. Software Development/ Game Development/Interactive
Systems/Information Kiosks

Testing and Evaluation
This part will confer the turn of events during the development and testing
of the system and/or process. Bugs, errors, other constraints and solutions to these
problems should be discussed.
single space
Unit Testing
This is the method of testing each program or module. The
objective of this phase is to identify and eliminate errors that could cause
logic errors and unusual program termination.
single space
Integration Testing
Also called link testing, this is done for two or more programs that
depend on each other. Integration testing has the following series of tests
to guarantee error-free system integration.
o Compatibility Testing
o Performance Testing
8
o Stress Testing
o Load Testing
System Testing
Sometimes called acceptance testing which involves the entire
system to be tested.
Evaluation
To determine the sample size of evaluation population, students
can either use Sloven’s formula or the total population sampling. Sloven’s
formula is use for a large population while the total population sampling is
use to examine the entire population which has a particular set of
characteristics.
For further information regarding population sampling, you may
visit the following websites:
1) http://dissertation.laerd.com/total-population-sampling.php
2) http://www.statisticshowto.com/how-to-use-slovins-formula/
9
To analyze the data gathered from the evaluation or for the system
testing, the students may use but not limited to any of the following:
1) T-test
2) Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney Test
3) Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
4) Chi-Squared Test
5) Correlation Coefficients
6) Linear Regression Models
7) Logistic Regression Analysis
For further example and discussion of the evaluation tool, students
may visit the following websites:
1) http://www.acfas.org/Physicians/Content.aspx?id=674
2) https://www.princeton.edu/~cap/AEESP_Statchap_Peters.pdf
2 single space
Implementation Plan
A schedule both agreed by the client and the student must be planned
and illustrated using a Gantt chart. A detailed discussion on implementation
schedule should be highlighted on this part. This can include the following:
-
Project Implementation Checklist
-
Implementation Contingency
-
Infrastructure/Deployment
CHAPTER IV
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION

A discussion on the results during implementation, bugs, errors and other
constraints experienced. Solutions to these problems should also be discussed. This will
discuss the project’s result and Analysis Report.
CHAPTER V
CONCLUSION
