Ourselves Unlike products, services are intangible goods which are highly perishable. As such, consumers typically encounter difficulty in ascertaining the quality, location and availability of desired services. Presently, several popular online social networking websites allow consumers to read reviews on services and locate them. However, most do not allow consumers to determine the availability of these services or to act on them. Working closely with businesses and consumers, this project aims to create an online portal where consumers can not only locate lifestyle services and evaluate them through word-of-mouth reviews, the portal will allow consumers to ascertain the availability of these services and act on the information immediately. Also, through the portal, businesses would be able to better market themselves, benchmark their services and receive market intelligence. Additionally, businesses would potentially be able to use promotions to handle demand variation and maximize resource utilization.

Associate Professor LIM Yun Fung, Assistant Professor of Operations Management Lee Kong Chian School of Business, SMU Domain Background: As a warehouse stores many different kind of products with different demands, it is vital to store the product at the right place to optimize total travel distance for the order pickers. The total distance traveled is calculated using the distance between the receiving door to the storage location to the shipping door multiply by number of visits to that storage location. A storage location can be a “multi-storey” rack or floor storage. Higher traveled distance means higher labor costs due to more time is required to travel. Therefore, it is important to optimize total travel distance by placing the product at the right place of the warehouse, based on the number of times the product need to be retrieved per year and the number of storage allocation per product at one time. Motivation: Currently in the course project, the students of Warehouse Management (OPIM322), SMU, manually compute the total distance travelled for each product with the assistance of spreadsheet. (There are 120 products altogether.) After which, the students will allocate the products using a proposed layout design on another spreadsheet. The process is time consuming and tedious, as a result, the students were unable to try different layout designs which could be optimal as well. This leads to limited learning process. Hence, to enhance the learning process to design and layout a unit-load warehouse and to achieve optimize travel distance of all products, a Warehouse Layout Optimization Tool will help the students to achieve this learning objective. Outcomes: The tool will be developed using Java with drag and drop capabilities and generate the paths for the order pickers to pick. The user will drag a product onto a “grid” which represents the warehouse space. The tool will informs the user on the total distance travelled for each location and the total warehouse needed to store all products when all products are on the “grid”. The picture below is one of the layout designed by a user in the tool. The color indicates the zone where the distance from the receiving / shipping door to the storage location. The shipping and receiving is located at the bottom center of the picture and the white spaces are the walkway (aisles) for the order pickers. For this picture, the dark blue indicated the nearest and dark red indicate the furthest from the receiving and shipping door. Value Statement: The tool will be able to help the students with useful information about individual products so that they can make better decisions to allocate the products to a location in a warehouse and experience different possible layout designs, thus reduces the need of other analysis tool such as spreadsheets, which is tedious to compute the distance and allocate the products to the right location. This tool is not only useful for the students; it can be useful for academic researches and can also be used in the real-world industry.

Standard Chartered The trend towards a cashless society is prominent and dominant. Though slow, the uptake is definite. Its main impedance remains a technological case: there is still a significant gap between e-Cash and real cash in terms of convenience and security. Our project aims to close that gap. The concept that we put across will allow electronic transactions to be as easy as a normal cash transaction. Implemented using Near Field Communication, possibly the next big wave for the wireless arena, everyone can transect with anyone else on the streets. An individual e-Wallet will be stored in a mobile phone, with security features. Individuals will not be able to “create” money while at the same time, the amount in the e-Wallet enjoys higher protection against thief then those in the wallet. With this, it is now very compelling for people to start using this technology.

Independent proposal 1. Project motivation The main driver for our project started with the need for a comprehensive and reliable online Collaborative Project Management System (CPMS). The project is also part of a broader business initiative which this group intends to develop in the near future, which has the CPMS as one the many core business modules or services that the complete system would showcase. Therefore, the team will be making full use of our IS Project as a test bed for our future endeavors. 2. Sponsor/client The project is an independent initiative by the team which aims to aid businesses and other independent users with an end-to-end solution for managing their projects diligently and effectively with easy to use navigation and interfaces. 3. Problem Currently available Project Management Applications (PMA) from different companies are just vague variations from one another. These PMAs tend to remodel the different ways of data representations yet conforming to common PM practices. Our group has realized the need to bridge the divide from this traditional method of PMA implementations and introduce the wide array of up-market communication technologies to create a PMA offering without boundaries. The aim of the online project management system is to provide project groups with a tool to effectively manage and organize their projects online. The system would allow project owners to monitor the status and development of their projects through an online web portal via reports and project dashboards. The portal will provide participating members of a project with the ability to access, update and uploaded documents, view a project’s status and progress, check and inform users of project updates, and communicate and track communication histories of the project team. In addition, the system will showcase a feature which allows members of a project to send mobile text messages through the system to notify them of new or critical project updates, changes, or perhaps to inform them of a newly scheduled meeting along with information about the time, date and physical or virtual venue of a meeting. Such a feature is just the first of many possible additions from the pool of new communication technologies that have been emerging in the market. The system would also allow members to access information and updates from anywhere in world as long as they have an internet connection. The system further ensures that documents are safely backed-up and versions archived accordingly during the period of an ongoing project. As we believe, in this era of globalization, our physical bodies are not longer limited to working in a confined space or only one project at any time. We are often tasked with the need to be at remote locations and handle multiple projects in a work term. Thus, the PMA must be able to aid the user in achieving his best result without additional effort wherever he may be. Finally, the system would allow users to synchronize calendar information from their Microsoft inbox to the portal. With the synchronization of their calendars, users can share their calendar with team members and allow our system to find suitable timeslots for meetings when necessary. 4. Value statement The adoption of the Online Collaborative Project Management System would better enable teams and project managers to manage their projects efficiently, improve work consistency and efficiency across the team, and have real-time updates on projects or meetings through the mobile text messaging service provided. In the understanding that most PMA offerings in the market will not have the similar feature bundle as CPMS, we will have to sell these additional features to any user at a seemingly low price (estimated less than 8% of project budget). We bring the value and enjoyment of easy project management to professional users, without additional effort or high costs. 5.

Radixed Decision Support Tool for Trugo Social Networking Platform
  1. Aditya Harneja
Radixs A very new entrant in the highly competitive social networking market, Trugo needs to differentiate itself as a social networking platform so as to be able to get users hooked on to it, and preferably even migrate from current social networking websites. Trugo intends to go mobile in the near future, and the platform was developed with the intention of going mobile – which the company hopes will be a true differentiating factor. They are firm believers that social networking goes beyond just the user’s desktop, and it is an experience that should be available to users on-the-go. ‘Trugo’ is currently available only as a web-based platform, owing to the fact that it was first launched in the United States – where most member of their target audience (15 to 24 year olds) has access to a computer, but not a mobile phone. The mobile phone culture in the United States is not as widespread as in Asia. In the Asian landscape, however, on average mobile phones are used more extensively for communication purposes than computers. Trugo wishes to capitalize on both markets – the computer users, as well as mobile phone addicts, and make social networking an all-pervasive phenomenon. Users of social networking websites interact with each other through the use of various different applications built into the social networking platforms. Currently, Trugo has 5 key applications – Stamps, Photos, Blogs, Videos and Polls. In order to get people hooked on to the platform and eventually the mobile interface, Trugo intends to start adding new applications to the existing platform to enhance functionality. On the cards are several new applications such as bulletin boards for communities where users can post new events and happenings, location-based calendaring applications for communities where local events can be scheduled, and news applications that users can contribute to. These are just some examples of the immense possibilities and options that lie before Radixs as they contemplate which applications they should build on the Trugo platform. A pressing need for our client is to have some basis on which to judge new and upcoming applications, and decide whether the application will be able to attract users. Another key requirement mentioned by Guy Bélanger was that the decision making capability should be able to include demographic considerations. This will then allow Radixs to develop applications for Trugo that would will target different ‘communities’ or ‘networks’ that users are members of. Therefore, to clearly spell out the client’s requirement in one statement: To have some means of judging the success of new applications based on characteristics of the application and demographic profiles of Trugo users. We will be building a simulation model consisting of various factors that are important in determining the success or failure of an application, in terms of the number of application users that it is able to attract. The simulation model will be useful to Radixs as a decision support tool that they can use to predict the success or failure of a particular application. As specified by Guy Bélanger, they want to be able to evaluate an application before they launch it, and to understand how likely it is that the application will be a success.
