Assessment Task


In this assessment item you have to create an e-portfolio using a software tool named Mahara and export this into a .zip file containing a free standing website.




Creative Solutions is a large scale supplier of hardware for residential building and garden maintenance. Creative Solutions has many warehouses geographically distributed in Australian cities and towns. Currently, all the management activities - stocktaking, ordering, and customer service are carried out with little use of information technology. The products are displayed on large shelves located in numbered isles. The customer service people helps customers to locate products on request. When a product is sold it is recorded with the receipt printed at the sales terminal. Stocktaking and reorder is done manually by checking items remaining on the shelves and recording items to be ordered. If customers want to know the availability of an item, they have to come to the store or ring and talk to a customer service staff.


The owners consider the need to be competitive, supplying products at reduced cost. This requires better management, and effective use of IT. Each warehouse has sales staff, customer service staff in different areas such as electricals, painting, timber work, gardening, and bathrooms. It has also purchase staff who does stock take and prepares the purchase list.


Analyse the above scenario, identifying and reporting on the following areas:


  1. A brief statement of the problem and business case from the perspective a Business Analyst (BA).
  2. Identify the information to be collected, and knowledge sources for such information (stakeholder analysis)
  3. Document the business context, the main business processes with functional relation between processes, and justify the appropriateness of the modelling tools used.
  4. Conclude your findings
