The greatest value in a course such as Wireless Devices and Applications (WDA) comes from applying the concepts, theories, applications, and devices explored during class. This term project gives you an opportunity to select a topic that interests you and apply concepts from readings, exercises, current devices, and class discussions. The Course Project allows you to apply the tools from the course to assess a problem, diagnose its sources, and recommend a course of action. In developing the project, assume that your manager has requested a thorough analysis and a recommended course of action for a problem that could be resolved by a wireless application. Some examples are a deployment plan for WDAs, a recommendation for specific mobile wireless solutions, or a marketing plan for a new mobile application.
Think of yourself as a consultant. Tackle a WDA problem in a specific organization of interest to you. Provide a detailed analysis of the causes of the problem or issue. Be sure the causes you identify relate directly. You must effectively apply course material and integrate findings from your review of the literature in your analysis. Discuss the concepts, ideas, and insights that are most valuable in helping you make sense of your project. This is not a course in applied common sense, so support your analysis with reference to appropriate research. You must use no less than eight resources outside your textbook. Cite all sources. Recommendations & Implementation Explore the solution(s) that could be appropriate to solve the identified problem or issue.
Be sure the solution(s) is/are logical based on your analysis and that the solution(s) would effectively treat the problem, not the symptoms. Also, discuss the anticipated outcomes (both positive and negative) of implementing each of the possible solution(s) you identified. Describe exactly what should be done and how it should be done, including by whom, with whom, and in what sequence. In other words, be specific about your recommended solution and implementation.
