The Benefit of Information System
Each of the information system is quite valuable to be helping tools to help organization to solve everyday problem. Information that has been produced by these information systems can help organization to maintain their competitiveness. There are three (3) levels where information systems give an edge to an organization. They are in business level, organization level and industrial level. Business Level Role of Information Technology in the business is to help organizations in reducing the cost of management and operations of the organization, make a difference to the product with a unique product and is not easily copied by competitors, creating new markets to allow organizations to market products or services in place and targets better than competitors and build linkages between organizations, customers and suppliers to enable the organization to bind customers and suppliers. Organization level In the Organizational level, information technology is used to achieve new efficiencies to improve service. Two strategies to achieve are by coordinate of unit operations and quality improvement organizations. Operational coordination can be done by integrating the operations of each unit in the organization so that it can function as one unit. The overall performance of the units in the organization is achieved when the output of one unit can be used as inputs to other units. Organizational quality improvement can be achieved by encouraging the sharing of knowledge between units within the organization. Encourage knowledge sharing management and staffs are sensitive to new knowledge. This will enable the organization to grow and maintain the efficiency of the market. Industrial Level Information technology can create smart partnerships in the industry. Thanks to this partnership, it can provide competitive advantage in the face. In order to remain competitive an organization should be able to work with other organizations to share information, manage transactions and coordinating the activities. Consumers will have abundance of choice due to new organization entering the market and offers different new product and new services. Customers and suppliers have the power to control supply and determine opportunities for the organization. Traditional competitors constantly improve strategies to maintain their market positions. Information technology is also able to increase profits without increasing the cost to the organization. Using a medium such as the Internet can create a community of users who want to share their experience. Thus be able to retain their customers.

History
Situated on north side of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) Kolej Tun Ghaffar Baba is one of the colleges which has strategic location for certain student who seeks and endures the calm and clean environment. Although it is situated in outer ring of campus, the environment has attracted many student especially international students to make this college as their home due to its greenery and calmness. On early of it Foundation, Kolej Tun Ghaffar Baba was built on year 2000 and has been finished on early year 2004. After the work of constructions and corrections were done, the administration of the college began it operation in the middle of Jun 2004. On early establishment the college has been named College 14 & 15. But in Jun 2007 college 14 & 15 has been renamed to Kolej Tun Ghaffar Baba officially by Deputy Vice Chancellor, Dato’ Dr. Alias b. Mohd Noor while attending Malam Sanggar Sanjung III. It was held the name of late Deputy Prime Minister Tun Abdul Ghaffar Baba due to his contribution to our nation and the sacrifice his made. This College was estimated can accommodate student around 1500 student on one time. This large number of student is accommodated in this four blocks consist of XA1, XA2, X1 and X2. There four block consists of 425 single rooms and 543 double rooms. Additionally Kolej Tun Ghafar Baba also provide home for her fellows in blocks XA3 and X3.

The Problem

7 | P a g e

The problem and causes Each college has its own problems. But there is a problem we share in common ground. One of the problems is to provide an effective counter. Students will come to the counter according to certain times. At that time the counters have to treat students who come in large numbers. In that time surely our staff cannot entertain the entire. It brought the anger and discomfort for the delay of services received. In addition to the manual method used also contribute to delays. This is because a lot of the time is used to fill the form, sort and also finding information in a book or log. In certain cases the application must be processed and approved by the Domestic Residential Assistant Manager and college principals. Such applications often take time to process due to work schedules of Domestic Residential Assistant Manager and principal are quite compact. Therefore it is necessary to have a mechanism to allow principal and Domestic Residential Assistant Manager knowing what they need to complete before they attend workshops or meetings. They should reduce bureaucracy in organization. At this time the university has developed a system called AIMS 2000 (Academic Integrated Management System 2000) which was developed by the Center for Information and Communication Technology (CICT) in 2000. Yet that has being long developed and still not upgraded. This causes the system cannot cope with the requirements of the current user. Hence the need of an efficient and fast system is required. Aside from the software, old computers need to be replaced or upgraded and add more to other requirements such as a printer, scanner images, and RFID or barcode reader. These devices are very important to ensure the smooth running of administration. Most the common problem happens is the barrier of language. The incapability of staff to have good command of English brings difficulties to understand the need of the student. Sometimes the ascents of different English dialect also need to be count. These factors bring confusion among staff and student thus makes communication much more difficult. 8 | P a g e

The Effect to the organizations
Due to problem above we face a lot of difficulty such as 1. College achievement decreased and showed no positive change. 2. Students do not like to deal in the office and the gap between students and staff increased. 3. The record is prone to error thus cannot be reliable. 4. University income can be affected by the record is not updated correctly. 5. Staff can be stressed out due to the overcrowded counter. 6. Time is wasted on waiting turn. 7. Taking a lot of time to retrieve the information we need.

9 | P a g e

The Solution

The first solution I would like to implement is to improvise our current workflow. We have to make some adjustment to meet with the current requirement. Information system may replace certain job that do by the human. Firstly I would like to suggest student should be able to use and apply directly through the system. Thus the key‐in job will be burden to the student shoulder rather than in the old days, stuff need to enter the data from paper form into the system. Secondly the usage of Matrix card as identity card will bring a lot of advantages. It certainly will avoid error such as identity error. The usage of matrix card has been made a university policy. The barcode at the back of the card can be used with barcode scanner. The RFID chip also has been embedded in the card thus will make a lot of possibility in future. In order to reduce the usage of traditional paper, the usage of electronic paper has been encouraged. Therefore form and any report can be converted to PDF file and send to email. Each of students has their own email provided by the university. Therefore all receipt and form can be attach to the email and send to them. Thus make the delivery more effective and give convenience to the student to make as reference. University has already developed its own information system managing the student record namely as AIMS (Academic Information Management System). However the system cannot cater the requirement we need today. It has been developed in the year of 2000. Thus it does mean the system needs a little bit improvement by making the integration between other systems without the need to develop it again.

The Action Plan
1 2 3 4 5 6 • Investigate the problem occured in our service. • Present the finding to the Domestic Residential Assistant Manager and the Principal. • Bring this matter in higher management such as Executive Meeting to ask the financial aid and other assistant. • Hardware and software installation. • Provide with training and exercise necessary. • Report results and improvement achieved by the project.

The first phase of the plan is to investigate the problem occurred on the service. We want to pin point the cause and the factor of the problem. From here we will job down the parties who involves and identify the priorities we need to emphasize. After the finding is finish, we will step on second phase by presenting the finding to the Domestic Residential Assistant Manager and the principal to hear out their concern and opinion. By that we will add our point in the finding and find our strength before hand over this matter to higher management in order to solve the problem by aiding us finance support and other aided we would like to have. On third phase, our principal will bring this matter forward in important meeting such as executive meeting. In this meeting the principal will address the member of the meeting the problem we faced and ask for any support we need especially on finance and technical aspects. The next phase can be initialized after we have support and gain enough the material we need to ensure this project succeeded.

11 | P a g e

On Forth phase, the installation of hardware can begin such as new computers, network connection and others. After the installation of hardware we can begin the installation with our new computer system that will boost our counter service. The next phase will begin after the installation of software is finish and there is no error and fault is found. On fifth phase, with the new computer system, new software and new device all will be in vein if we don’t have the knowledge how to operate it. Therefore the need of training and exercise is necessary to ensure the operation can be done smoothly. In order of that special training should be provided and to be given by the expert who knows the system very well. On last phase as token of gratitude to the higher management we would like to gave them our report the feedback we got and the achievement we gain before and after the improvement we do. Perhaps with this other college will follow the same footsteps in order to improve their service to be more effective.

12 | P a g e

Conclusion
With the new system and desires to success will bring a good quality of service from time to time. Good system is not only profitable to the university but gives such convenience to the students and staff themselves. The new system is also able to facilitate processes, reduce errors and increase revenue. It is therefore necessary creative ideas and innovative in solving problems from time to time is needed and to be cultivated.

...MI Inventory Paper PSYCH 538 MI Inventory Paper Kathiann Kowalski (2001) contends, “When it comes to describing people's learning styles, one thing is clear: Because everybody's brain is different, learning styles vary widely” (para.4). Learning styles are an important aspect to individual learning. The ability to recognize personal learning styles and identify strengths and weaknesses enables individuals to reach optimal success. Optimizing personal learning style leaves room for improvement. Learning styles vary and not everyone learns the same way. It is beneficial to evaluate learning styles in order to be productive in any learning or work environment. In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner, a professor of neuroscience and psychologist at Harvard University developed the theory of Multiple Intelligences. Individuals have various make-ups, and according to Dr. Gardner each is a unique combination. Dr. Howard Gardner’s theory suggests that there are nine different intelligences. For Gardner, intelligence is: • the ability to create an effective product or offer a service that is valued in a culture; • a set of skills that make it possible for a person to solve problems in life; • the potential for finding or creating solutions for problems, which involves gathering new knowledge. According to the Multiple Intelligence Inventory the results that were strongly identified were Intrapersonal, Logical, and Verbal. Intrapersonal......

Mis 589

...PROBLEM QUESTIONS WEEK 1 Professor Milham- MIS 589  P3. Consider an application that transmits data at a steady rate (for example, the sender generates an N-bit unit of data every k time units, where k is small and fixed). Also, when such an application starts, it will continue running for a relatively long period of time. Answer the following questions, briefly justifying your answer: * a. Would a packet-switched network or a circuit-switched network be more appropriate for this application? Why? For this scenario, circuit switching would work best because you have dedicated channels that will all for uninterrupted transmission even when there are quiet periods (no transfer) on the medium. There are inherent delays with packet switching (setup time, etc.) that are ideal for services such as voice or video streaming. * b. Suppose that a packet-switched network is used and the only traffic in this network comes from such applications as described above. Furthermore, assume that the sum of the application data rates is less than the capacities of each and every link. Is some form of congestion control needed? Why? Yes, this network should still have some measures of congestion control for several reasons. Although the scenario describes a application that runs periodically for a long period of time, it does not provide the number of users, if any, that will be using this same service. Further, there are other types of delays that must be considered such as nodal......

The Study of Mis

...responsible for managing, using, transporting and processing information in the organization. MIS is used to effectively solve problems in business on all levels for all areas. MIS can be compared to the study of Computer Science, the study of design, implementation, deployment, and evaluation of computer systems. Although, there are similarities, MIS focuses on the business environment as a way to use computers and similar technology for an organization. MIS has come a very long way through the years. There are six different eras that catalog the evolution. The first era began with the standalone mainframe. Users would use a punch card to type programs. They then would give the punch cards to the MIS personnel to input the information into the mainframe. The second era came about by the introduction of the hard-wired terminal. Users would input programs onto electronic keyboards; MIS personnel would maintain keyboards, known as dumb terminals, and the communication to the mainframe. The PC brought about the third era. Users would bring PCs to work and MIS personnel’s job functions became more complicated as they were asked to help with problems associated with these early PSs. As organizations realized the amount of productivity gain from having PCs, LANS and Enterprise Networks were beginning to be used in the fourth era.
