Several of these themes will come up again in later modules in this course. But by way of introduction to the subject, let's take a look at some views of how knowledge works (these are the REQUIRED readings): Leonard, D., & Swap, W. (2005). The Knowledge Coach. HBS Working Knowledge. Retrieved 01 July 2011, from: http://hbswk.hbs.edu/item/4562.html Levinson, M. (2007). Knowledge Management Definition and Solutions. Retrieved 01 July 2011, from: http://cio.com/article/print/40343 Wiig, K.M. (N.D.) On The Management of Knowledge. The Wiig Group. Retrieved 01 July 2011, from http://km-forum.org/wiig.htm For this case assignment (1) read through the three articles then (2) select any one IS theory listed at: http://fsc.yorku.ca/york/istheory/wiki/index.php/Main_Page and read about that theory in-depth, then (3) write a 3-4 page essay that discusses how data, information and knowledge are applicable in the context of that theory, or vise-versa. Be sure your discussion demonstrates that you understand the meanings and differences between data, information and knowledge. In your discussion give a real-world example of data, knowledge and information in the context of your theory and provide some commentary on that scenario as to what was done right, what could be better to achieve a better outcome.
...still using the manual system. The librarian of the staff is responsible for the monitoring of the log in/logout of the students and the borrowing and returning of the books. They are also responsible for the lost books and it is difficult for them to trace who lost the books or who did not returned it on the time.
A computerized Library System is designed to help them effectively do their daily transactions and use a system that is user friendly and less human effort.
A. The purpose of the Library System is to promote and provide quality free public
library services in the best interest of the students of workers.
B. The Library System shall include but not be limited to the Library Board buildings
and equipment, personnel, books and materials, and the policies that are used to
provide free public library services for the entire community.
C. We provide Library information System to fasten searching capability.
Scope and Limitation
A single library location that allows a registered library user (card holder) to browse through books, periodicals, and misc multimedia. It would be able rent out those items to the user as well as collect outstanding items from the user.

...The Major HR Management Subsystems in Organizations Today
There are several ways to conceptualize the structure and means for organizing the HR system in an organization.
The first, and perhaps most familiar, is the functional method (Rothwell, Prescott, & Taylor, 1998). In this approach, HR management is organized into units such as employee relations, training, compensation and benefits, and payroll. Each is considered a function because it bears specific responsibilities for the organization's total HR system.
A second way of structuring HR management is the point of contact method. With this approach, which is much rarer than the functional approach, HR is organized around meeting the needs of its clients, stakeholders, and community. There are separate functions for worker input (such as recruitment, placement, and orientation), maintaining workers (such as payroll, training, compensation, and employee relations), and output (such as decruitment and retirement).
A third way to think about HR management has become popular in recent years . This method divides those who do the work of the HR function into two groups. One group handles transactions, such as processing payroll, making name changes on benefit forms, and updating employee records. A second group extends the people management expertise of the HR function to line management groups, offering on-the-spot, real-time consulting advice to managers and workers who may be dealing...
...COMPUTERIZED PAYROLL SYSTEM FOR TURNSHOP (A SUPERMARKET)
PURPOSE AND PROBLEM(Initiation):
Firstly the purpose of this system is to help Turnshop to solve it problem in the running of it accounting department which the whole company relies on it, so that they can have accurate, reliable and fast processing of their payroll system in the company. For now the payroll system of the company is process manually and since there are 2000 employees and more actives of the company it make it very hard and tedious to accomplish this task in the company, it also cause a high room for errors, overtime, resources and money and it will help the company a lot if they have a computerized payroll system (CPS).
The cost of the computerized payroll system (CPS) is about 50,000 Ghana cedis.since we will install a two new severs for them to handle most of most of their data, one of the sever will act as a recovery and the other works as the main. And also the cost will include a free demonstration and practical tutorial for the accounting staff in TURNSHOP as well with three (3) months training using the computerized payroll system (CPS).we will help during the period of transition. It will be a user friendly and easy to install and use.
1. Since the company already has some hardware requirements already this can be use for the computerized payroll...
...implementation stage of the System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is the most challenging and crucial part of the process. System implementation is defined as, “‘the phase of internal strategy formation, project definitions and activities in which the adopted application is introduced within the organization, with the aim of removing reservations and stimulating the optimum use of the application’.” (Bouwman, H., van, D. H. B., & van, D. W. L. (2005) pg. 77 para. 4) Riordan Manufacturing must have experts from several fields within the business to assure the successful implementation of the system. One decision that must be made is which departments will be given precedence for the installation. I feel as though the human resources department (HR) and the information technology (IT) department would take precedence, followed then by the Financial and Accounting management departments and the operations management departments.
The first step of the implementation process is the coding stage. During this process, it is crucial that all of the appropriate required features are taken into consideration to assure proper functionality of the new HR system for Riordan Manufacturing. With each object or module developed for the new system, their functionality directly impacts the functionality for the system users. It is also imperative to implement databases so that the IT department can...

Systems and Sub Systems Inter- relationships
Riordan Manufacturing current resides in four locations throughout the world. Corporate Headquarters is located in San Jose, California which uses 100 Base T fast Ethernet 2 24 port Cisco 5950 switches. The other locations end user interface are comparably different the sub systems are very similar by design. Most of these sub-systems are created on a site to site basis to fulfill the needs of that site particle goals or responsibilities. The attributes that are common in most of these systems are:
1. Personal Information Systems
2. Office Automation Systems
3. Group Work Information Systems
The information systems are a technology based image of the business system. This image is used by the decision systems to control day to day operations, managing resources, decision making and problem solving and business improvement and innovation. The information system is not a single...
...1. Discuss here any example, instance, or application of a principle of general systems theory that you have experienced or come across in your job or student life. Your example may or may not have anything to do with computer systems but must illustrate some aspect of what we mean by "systems thinking" in the world.
Answer: From my understanding, Systems thinking involves taking the most pragmatic approach towards solving problems that arise in everyday life weighing the problem’s relevance with all the components that get affected with the problem. I would like take the example where I experienced systems thinking in my work experience.
Resolving a production defect: During my stint with Infosys, I worked on many Life Insurance development projects across all life stages of software development which often involved tight deadlines right from the stage of requirement analysis, preparation of high level design specifications, detailed level technical specifications, coding, testing and production deployment. Many projects also had production warranty support where the production defects have to be serviced without charging any service fee to the clients.
In resolving any production defect, before jumping into the problem and debugging the underlying code, I always found it useful to first understand the scenario in which the end user was facing the problem. I used to double check the system’s...
