15.578 專題

你的 15.578 學期專題,讓你有機會對課堂上討論的構想,作更深入的研究。學期專題可以獨立完成,或由最多三人的小組來完成。本專題可以許多形式完成,例如:

  1. 個案分析:個案可描述組織如何面對連結議題(例:嬌生、FXX)。個案應具備 15.578 中之架構的普遍性概念(例:連結價值鏈、事業轉型層級等)。

  2. 比較性分析:許多策略性、實體的、邏輯的、 和組織性的連結概念都己經被發展出來了。在以上兩個或更多的概念間加以比較將是很吸引人的(例:同質性與異質性分散式資料庫、分散式光纖資料介面(FDDI)與十億位元乙太網路、可擴展標記語言(XML)與網頁服務等)。

  3. 電腦專題:如果你願意,你可以參加 15.565 同學的電腦專題。如果你要參加的話,請先知會助教,因為這個作業分成多個份, 其中有些部份很快就會開始了。

學期專題提案:

你的學期專題題案必須簡短(大約一頁),但需足以清楚的說明學期專題的目標和相關的議題(例如其中的風險)。請做到:(1) 訂一個專題名稱,(2) 列出組員。我們建議你早點交出提案,這樣可以早點得到回應和認可。

學期專題:

一般說來,認何與 15.578 有關的主題,都可能成為學期專題。專題並沒有頁數限制,因為那要看你選的主題而定。依照上學期的經驗,一般大約是10-20頁兩倍行高。每一份學期專題,都必須寫出策略性、技術性、和組織性議題 ── 但不需要佔相同的比例,這也是看你選的主題而定。

學期專題簡報:

簡報是作業的一部份,你必須準備10-15分鐘的簡報(大約4-5張投影片)作為報告的附件。其中少數同學的簡報會被選出(第24堂課時),並且在第25堂課時上台報告。

15.565 專題

功能概要:

作為一個麻省理工學院的學生,如果能有以個就業輔助系統(PAS),來幫忙可能的公司並準備面試,將會很有幫助。有許多分散的重要資訊來源,例如:公司懸缺的職位、面試的日期、在公司裡的校友、相關校友的聯絡資訊、公司在產業中的位置、股價表現、和最近的新聞(見下列來源範圍)。學生受資訊分散本質的限制。本專題的目標是整合其中一些來源,並使用網頁瀏覽器作為前端介面,讓學生更容易作出更好、更充分的決策。PAS應用程式必須模組化,這樣才能依需求不同來調整,並更容易加入新的資訊來源。雖然我們會訂出基本的功能概要,而且專題大致上會依此進行,但我們希望你能提出意見,像應該什麼資訊,以及有什麼別的科技可以進一步加強這個專題。

15.565 Project

Your 15.578 term project is intended to give you the opportunity to pursue the ideas discussed in class in more depth. The term project may be done individually or in groups of up to 3 people. There are many forms that it can take. Some examples are:

  1. Case Study: A case study can be written regarding an organization faced with Connectivity issues (e.g., like J&J, FXX). The case should provide some generalizable concepts, drawing from frameworks used in 15.578 (e.g., interlinked value chains, levels of business transformation, etc.).

  2. Comparative Analysis: There are many strategic, physical, logical, and organizational connectivity concepts being developed. A comparative analysis of 2 or more approaches could be interesting (e.g., homogenous vs heterogeneous distributed database systems; FDDI vs Gigabit Ethernet, XML and Web Services, etc.)

  3. Computer Project: If you wish, you can participate in the Computer Project being done by 15.565 students. If so, please let the TA know since there are multiple parts to this assignment - some starting very soon.

Term Project Proposal:

Your term project proposal should be brief (about one page in length) but be sufficiently specific so that the term project goals and any related issues (such as project risks) are clearly stated. Be sure to: (1) give a name to your project and (2) list the group members. We recommend that you turn in your proposal early to get feedback and approval.

Term Project:

In general, anything that relates to the topics of 15.578 is likely to be a viable term project. There is no set length to the term project since it will depend upon the topic you pick. In previous terms, typical lengths were 10-20 pages double-spaced. Every term project should address strategic, technical, and organizational issues - though not necessarily equal emphasis since this would depend upon topic.

Term Project Presentation:

As part of your term project assignment, you are to prepare a brief 10-15 minute presentation (probably 4-5 slides) to be turned in as an Appendix to your report. A few representative projects will be selected (by Lecture #24) to give their presentation on the day of Lecture #25.

Sample Term Projects (from previous terms):

  • "LAN for CAES Advanced Study Program"
  • "Engineering Change Process at McDonnell"
  • "Data Communications for Comm. Of Massachusetts"
  • "Connectivity Issues in the Dry Cleaning Industry"
  • "IT Strategy for an Israel-based High-Tech Firm"
  • "Strategic Implications of EDI"
  • "Transborder Data Flow"
  • "Comm Technology at Boston Stock Exchange"
  • "Connectivity at Goldman Sachs & Co."
  • "Use of Fiber Optics in Local Area Networks"
  • "Inter-Org Systems in a Japanese Auto Company"
  • "Knowledge Management"
  • "Virtual Private Networks"
  • "Communications & Connectivity at Ford"
  • "Microsoft's Digital Nervous System"
  • "Bringing Broadband to your Neighborhood"
  • "ERP and Connectivity"
  • "The Automotive Network Exchange"
  • "How the Internet May Change the Music Industry"
  • "Data Warehouse as Integration Tool for Retail Banks"


15.565 Project

Functional Overview:

As an MIT student, it would be nice to have a Placement Assistant System (PAS) to help decide on potential companies and prepare for interviews. There are many distributed sources for vital information. e.g., open company positions, interview dates, Alumni working in the company, contact information for relevant alumni, company industry and location information, stock performance, and current news (see range of sources below). The student is limited by the distributed nature of this information. The goal of this project is to integrate several of these sources using a web browser front-end interface to make it easier for the student make better and more informed decisions. The PAS application is to be modular so it can be scaled according to individual needs and to make it easier to incorporate new information sources. Although we will define the basic functional overview and most of the project will be along the same lines, we would like you to come up with ideas on what information should be incorporated and other technologies that might further enhance such a project.
