<span style="color:blue"><b>About SIWMA</b></span>
 +
Establish in 1982, SIWMA is a trade association representing the iron merchants in Singapore i.e. structural steel and metal works, roofing, steel material stockists etc. A key aim of the Association is to promote sharing of skills, ideas and better co-operation to enhance productivity among fellow iron merchants.
  
*iOS and Android platform for user
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>About project</b></span>
#User guide on first download
+
The intended online trading portal is for SIWMA’s members to inter-trade and share resources amongst themselves helps to cut back on wastes and improve productivity and hence bottom-line.  
#Sign in through social media
+
“One man’s thrash is another man’s treasure”
#Guided steps on setting a user profile
+
For example, Company A has secured a steel railings project that would require a total of 50 pieces of each 6 meters long steel pipes to fabricate the steel railings. However, the cutting plan of the railings is only 4.5 meters long i.e. for each of the purchased 6 meters long steel pipes, only 4.5 meters are to be consumed, leaving 2 meters as “wastage” (see Figure 1 below).
#Search or start a dream
+
Figure 1 - Company A’s cutting plan
#AI recommendations on which project user may like
+
#Personalised search engine
+
Along comes Company B, who has secured another project to fabricate steel barrier which according to its cutting plan, requires 48 pieces of each 1.5 meters long steel pipes.
#Team dynamic display
+
Company B, without communicating with Company A, would like likely go on to procure 12 pieces of 6 meters long pipe, calculated 1.5 meters x 48 pieces = 72 meters, to be divided by 6 meters to derive 12 pieces of 6 meters long raw materials, (see Figure 2 below).  
#Task management function
+
Figure 2 - Company B's cutting plan
#Questionnaire functions
+
   
#Optional: Discussion
+
If Company B had gotten in touch with Company A, then the two can barter a deal for the latter to sell is 2 meters “wastage” to the former at a below market price.
#Optional: Paid services
+
The aim of the online trading portal is to provide a platform for members of SIWMA to post what they wish to sell or buy, and the respective companies’ procurement in-charge will have an additional avenue of materials to source from.  
#Optional: Machine & Deep learning
 
*Web data analytics for sponsor
 
#User behaviour analytics
 
#Simple content update
 
#Gathering feedback
 
#Optional: Poll functions for user to share what do they prefer
 
#Optional: In app channel to reply
 
*Your creative input on how to improve this further.

==IMAPAC – Platform for B2B communities==
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Goal: </b></span>
 
Design and create an online partnering platform for B2B communities.
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Description: </b></span>
 
This web-based application will have the following features including:
 
#Community owner can create an community where users/members can be imported
 
#Users within a community can view conference programme and schedule meetings with each other during the conference days
 
#A partnership opportunity bulletin will allow users of community to post a partnering opportunity anonymously and only mutually agreeable matching partners will connect.
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Impact:</b></span>
 
Instead of having our conference as a once-a-year platform to do business, businesses can find matching partners within a pre-qualified community throughout the year. Community owner could potentially use this platform to create additional revenue by charging for matched opportunities in the future, thus creating a complete new business model and new revenue stream altogether.
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Deliverables:</b></span>
 
*Platform (Web and Hybrid apps) for community owner (admin) and community users to perform tasks such as post conference agenda, view conference agenda, request for meetings, manage calendars, post opportunity, accept opportunity etc.

==SMU HR – Engaging U==
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>About Engaging U: </b></span>
 
Engaging U is a segment of SMU Onboarding programme for admin and research staff. The segment is currently integrated as part of SMU Connect (Staff Orientation). The current Engaging U segment is an interactive segment similar to the Amazing Race concept where new hires will leverage on their functional expertise, knowledge and teamwork to explore various locations within the campus and solve puzzles in groups of 8 to 10.
 
The objective of Engaging U is to ensure that new hires learn more about SMU - the physical locations, facilities, services, and more importantly the cultural artifacts and stories that cannot be conveyed through pen and paper.
 
The objective for the project is to explore sustainable and ‘self-service’ technological solutions and platforms for taking the Engaging U from a ‘pen and paper’ experience into an interactive, fun, AR game using a mobile app.
 
 
 
About Learning & Organisational Development (within the Office of Human Resources & Faculty Administration)
 
Learning & Organisational Development is responsible for:
 
#establishing a systematic and comprehensive approach towards learning & development and performance management for non-faculty staff
 
#champions organisation and employee engagement through communications, events and initiatives for staff
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Description</b></span>
 
We currently have the storyboard, content, games, and media for the Engaging U to be developed into an AR mobile app. The existing Engaging U programme involves giving participants an hour to complete a trail (which has a total of six hotspots) of the campus.  At each hotspot, they will be given a description and brief history of the hotspot before providing them with a set of ‘to-dos’ or challenges.  Only after completion of the challenge, do we provide them with a clue to the next location. Points will be given for speed in completion of the task and not speed of completion for the entire trail.  Prizes are given to the teams who complete the task correctly and timely. The current programme is highly reliant on pen and paper approach.
 
  
Collaboration with schools/ departments and students will allow us to develop a sustainable and unique SMU digital product that serves the objectives of Engaging U and the onboarding programme. The digital enhancements we would like include the following:  
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>Key Features</b></span>
*AR and Gamification functions, e.g. drag and drop, match pictures, take and upload photos, and use AR-interfaces for activities where required. There should be a gamification platform to allow participants to track progress, results and a leaderboard.
+
Imagine the popular Carousell trading portal, but with particular focus on heavy industrial raw materials, consumables, equipment etc.  
*Hosting of multimedia elements, e.g. watch a short video or upload short media (e.g. mpeg, gif)
+
The following are preliminary features to be included:
*Ability for the user/administrator to sustain the mobile app with minimal IT support and perform self-service in making updates or changes to current content, improve or edit games, and change scoring requirements.
+
#Marketplace – where several sellers and vendors offer products listings, in exchange for some marketplace fees (that can be per item sold, product category etc.).  
 +
#Custom Search & Navigation – Customised to the user’s preference and habits.
 +
#Messaging & Notifications – Each seller and buyer have their own inbox, which allows them to communicate freely without administrative intervention.
 +
#Mobile Friendliness – Online shopping is increasingly moving from desktops and laptops to smart phones and tablets. The portal must be easy to use on any type of device or screen size.  
 +
#Analytics Dashboard – Monitor trends from real-time data and take in feedbacks to evolve and improve the portal.  
  
The expected timeframe for project close and handover to user/administrator is 6 months (maximum).

<span style="color:blue"><b>About Jobstoday: </b></span>
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>About the Journaler</b></span>
Company dealing with out-sourced staffing, we need to have a system to do our manpower deployment, attendance taking and linking payment via the bank system. We do have about 200 part timers working with us and we can provide the data to the team for analysis. Our daily deployment is about 20-100 pax. Therefore, a IT system will really help us scale up fast. Currently process is very manual.
+
[https://www.ilr.cornell.edu/worker-institute/new-york-state-projects/jornaler-app-grow-knowledge-build-community-end-wage-theft Jornaler@] is a mobile phone application that combines technology with worker education for preventing wage-theft and other labour rights violations. The app has been tailored to the specific needs of undocumented migrant day laborers in the USA, who are among the most vulnerable members of the workforce. They do not have regular jobs, but instead seek casual work from different employers day by day. Over 50% of day laborers have experienced some type of wage theft (non-payment of wages).  
  
[http://www.joie.com.sg Project Joie]. Joie will be a platform for part timers to accept their part time shifts. Clock in attendance and get paid on the same day when the manager verify the work done.
+
The Jornaler@ application provides day laborers and worker centers with a recordkeeping and data sharing tool, which would help them to both prevent wage-theft incidence. Through a record of work hours, and together with the ability to store information about their casual employers, e.g. the car they drive, Jornaler@ helps workers prove their claims to their rightful wages legally.
It will be the most efficient part timer software to eliminate all the hassle of signing timesheet and waiting for a long time before getting paid.
 
We would like to add in gamification functions to engage the part timers to stay with the platform to provide skill up grading opportunity so that they can increase their productivity
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Deliverables</b></span>
 
#Platform (Web, iOS and Android -> TBC) for admin, part timers and managers to perform tasks such as attendance taking, verify the work done, acceptance of shifts etc.
 
#Able to calculate the payroll earned.
 
#Potentially work with bank API to upload the payroll instantly
 
#Addition of simple gamification functions to engage the users
 
#Collection and storing of critical data and implementing data analytics to help retain the existing part timers
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Students benefits</b></span>
 
#This system will definitely go live for real users to use
 
#There are real data for students to work with
 
#Students can explore blockchains to see how it can apply to the whole system
 
#Students can write alogo to see how best we can match the part timers to the part time jobs
 
#I am from SMU and I will personally spend more time to mentor the team of students.

==Runkicker – Data framework integration platform==
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>About RunKicker: </b></span>
 
Runkicker is a Singapore-based start-up with the ambition to revolutionize the way that people use cutting-edge technology supported by deep learning analytics to motivate themselves to become more active, stay active for longer and improve their health. 
 
At Runkicker, the difference we bring to meeting this challenge is that the solution is personal to people at all levels of fitness.
 
We’re not like the thousands of other health and fitness apps that focus only on people who are already active or are easily motivated to become active.  We’re aiming to also motivate the 1.9 billion+ over-weight adults to become more active and healthier for longer – by better understanding the user. 
 
To do that, we’re designing a health and fitness app experience that is relevant to each individual.  Runkicker is being designed and built explicitly on strategies drawn from behavioural theory and evidence (which is something that is accepted by global experts as effective, but something that very few other health and fitness apps are actually doing!). 
 
And of course, Runkicker will give customers an awesome personal user experience.  That experience will come from combining the latest technology and analytics techniques, and it will also come from customers interacting with an awe-inspiring app design.
 
Runkicker is driving a revolution, not evolution, in the global health and fitness app market. If you’re the type of person that likes to re-define boundaries, set new standards for others to follow and to collaborate with global experts to pioneer revolutionary change that will benefit a global health epidemic, then read on!
 
Project Description: The next generation Health and Fitness Evolution!
 
Coupled with behavioural research to become the Industry Benchmark in improved health metrics within the ‘sedentary 80%’ of users who require personalised motivation, intervention and retention techniques based on a behavioral science, AI platform.
 
The team will extend on the initial SMU IS 480 MVP (Minimum Viable Product) [[Main_Page#The_Bros_Code|The Bros Code]] to further refine and add functionality
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Requirements: </b></span>
 
The team will be required to create a data input framework application with the following core parts:
 
#Wearable Integration data. Integration of real-time wearable data input devices (fit bit, apple watch) into existing RunKicker Application. Determine whether straight to App or an API integration framework is required.
 
#DNA profiling data. Engage with an identified DNA profiling third party, whose experience is in using DNA to create a personal physiological blue-print for the user.  The blue-print can highlight natural tendencies for the user’s body to manage various foods or beverages in different (adverse) ways. 
 
#Map physical activity, DNA and Behavioural profile. Consider how to build daily user routine profiles mapped to genomic information and use this information to develop a more tailored and personalised set of recommended dietary suggestions, exercise routines and tips for healthier lifestyle. Be creative in the use of content to capture the users attention.
 
The team will also be required to set up wireframes (such as InVision) to enable joint tracking of progress and user experience
 
#Allows tracking of transactions, add/edit services offered on the site and user/content management
 
#Analytics related function using collected user and transaction data to provide useful insights to business
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Deliverables: </b></span>
 
#A functioning data framework integration platform coupled to existing application elements that allows easy addition of any new standards based data elements. Example: Demonstrate Integration of many kinds of applications (independent from platform, programming language or resource) so they can be bound together in workflows and processes to work in conjunction. The different interfaces are hidden by the usage of a uniform interface in the integration platform (Process Integration).
 
#Demonstrate integration of apple watch and fit bit devices.
 
#Demonstrate the uploading of DNA profiling data and show correlation to user, activity, diet and demonstrate unique set of recommendations to the specific user.
 
#A web-based portal for data administration and content addition management.
 
#Take security considerations into account so that, for example, data is shared only with the right resources.
 
#Visual guidance by interactive user interfaces and a common facade for all integrated applications
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Skill requirements: </b></span>
 
#Proficient to some extent in frontend web design as the website is used by customers.
 
#Familiar in mobile application development (iOS, Android, Cross Development Tools for Mobile applications) languages can include Java, Swift, Objective C
 
#Interest in animation technologies of mobile app to enhance UX
 
#Familiar with web development technology and frameworks (HTML, CSS, PHP, etc)

<span style="color:blue"><b>About TWC2’s proposed SalaryTracker app.</b></span>
 +
Unlike the context for Jornalero, our Singapore app is aimed at legal workers. There is therefore no need for the app to store information about the employer beyond the official name of their legal employer. Instead, the focus of the app is to counter the possibility of false claims by the employer in cases of wage disputes. E.g. the employer might deny that the worker worked overtime on such and such a day, or the employer might say that the worker never showed up at work at all. The employer might also miscalculate the rate of pay for overtime, thus coming up with a total salary that is less that the worker should get.
  
 +
<span style="color:blue"><b>Features we’d like SalaryTracker to have</b></span>
 +
#Store data on the phone with export option
 +
#Store key information such as worker ID, employer name, basic monthly salary.
 +
#App should be able to store information for up to three employers/jobs simultaneously.
 +
#“Punch Card” function, allowing the worker to enter the time he starts work and the time he ends work for each day of the calendar. Worker can either capture the phone system’s time, or manually key in a time (if the latter, app should also log what time he manually keyed in the time in/out.)
 +
#Geolocation function. Worker should be able to capture his geolocation at any time. The app should log the time he captured his geolocation. This will help the worker prove that he was at work at such and such a time.
 +
#Salary estimate function. The app should be able to estimate for the worker, based on his punch card data, what his salary for the month is. This allows him to know whether the amount he is eventually paid is correct.
 +
#Supporting documents. The worker is prompted to take photos of time cards and salary slips that the employer produces, and which are either given to him or temporarily shown to him. The app should link to the images stored.
 +
#Languages. English, Chinese, Bengali, Tamil, Burmese.
 +
#And any other features students might recommend.

ChangingLives, we hope that the SMU students can help to change our lives, while we change the lives of others.
 +
We also invite SMU Students to be involved in our monthly trainer engagement programmes while we talk on Youth Issues & topics such as conquering presentations, relationship & conflict management, managing my finances, leadership & me
  
The scope of the project includes implementing the following capabilities:
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>About High Achievers Training Consultancy: </b></span>
* a landing page for a user featuring items that are recommended to the user
+
A training consultancy that aims to #ChangeLives of students and teachers through the trainings we provide. We conduct workshops for secondary school youths in the three domains (Life skills, Leadership skills and Study Skills), together with our team of freelance undergrad trainers. While the trainers focus on changing the lives of students, we hope to focus on how we can help the Trainers develop themselves in the long run. Our current administrative processes are focused toward supporting schools (eg. Reports) and do not comprehensively support trainer’s growth and development.
* a personalized search engine that returns a ranked list of products based on a user’s preferences
+
We are rolling out more initiatives to engage and grow trainers, this application will support us greatly in our reporting and decision-making abilities.
* a “related items” recommendation that helps a user to browse and consider other items
 
 
   
 
   
This requires addressing several challenges, such as:
 
* revamping the front-end of [https://thriftcity.preferred.ai/ ThriftCity] to present recommendations in a friendly way
 
* incorporating end-to-end framework: supporting user login, collection of user feedback, updating machine learning models, and delivery of new recommendations
 
* engaging a pilot group of users over the life of the project as test bed and focus group
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Benefit to Students:</b></span>
 
* A lot of learning opportunities.  If you are into data science and algorithms, there will be challenging and interesting problems to solve.
 
* Technical support and assistance.  We have existing libraries for machine learning and recommendation models that will be useful for the project.
 
* Interaction with the [https://preferred.ai/ Preferred.AI] group.  Our members are cool, friendly, and helpful people who know something about AI, machine learning and data science.  We are always looking forward to learning new things with you!

<span style="color:blue"><b>About Samaritern:</b></span>
 
Samaritern is a focused one-stop career and skills development platform to help prepare today’s talents for tomorrow’s businesses. We do so by helping talents discover their career goals through our career development platform. Using big data analytics, we are able to provide relevant opportunities to guide talents towards career success. Through our platform, we will identify skill gaps and areas where talents can learn and later apply through relevant opportunities. This will be through means of internships, part-time or freelance opportunities. Doing so will equip talents with the relevant skills and experiences that employers are looking for, thus preparing them for the workforce.
 
Team description:
 
Samaritern is founded in late-2017 by three SMU alumnus with experiences in Strategy, Marketing and Information Systems. The company is currently incubated by SMU’s IIE and recently won the annual competition organised by SMU’s Eagles Inc; PAK Challenge 2018. With this, Samaritern currently has capital of S$20k which will be mostly reinvested into the company. We are currently in the midst of raising another S$30k through the Startup SG Founders’ grant.
 
We are currently looking expand the team to further develop the company and its systems.
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project description:</b></span>
 
Samaritern seeks to work with a team to propose and develop a data analytic driven platform. The platform will have 3 functions:
 
*initial assessment of talents
 
*career discovery and skills gap identification
 
*relevant recommendations to learn and apply skills
 
#Initial Assessment. The initial assessment will be the first screen to gather information about talents’ information, such as personality and soft skills, so as to help talents discover their career goals.
 
#Career discovery and skills gap identification. The platform will identify a talents’ skills gap using our competency framework in order to provide relevant recommendations.
 
#Relevant recommendations to learn and apply skills. Once gaps have been identified, appropriate and relevant recommendations will be provided for talents to learn the skills needed and reduce the gap. Thereafter, relevant opportunities will be provided to talents to apply these newly learnt skills in real world companies and projects.

<span style="color:blue"><b>Student benefits</b></span>
 
Opportunity to code a full-fledged working platform: completing this FYP project
 
successfully will enable the student to add this to his or her portfolio. This would prove to
 
be a huge value-add should the student apply for any budding tech start-ups or even
 
existing tech giants.
 
 
 
Opportunity to apply creatively knowledge and skill-sets acquired from NUS
 
courses: while we have stated the final deliverables, we are flexible in terms of how the
 
students arrive at the final product because we believe in nurturing through autonomy –
 
students would grow best having the freedom to creatively apply what they have learnt in
 
their coursework and doing so would allow them to deepen their understanding of the
 
concepts learnt.
 
 
 
Understanding the business requirements of an emerging start-up: to ensure that they
 
can deliver the product to their best abilities, students would have to understand the
 
context and business requirements of what they are doing. Thus, not only will they
 
improve on their technical skills and knowledge, they will also be able to gain industry
 
and business knowledge in the process.
 
 
 
Opportunity to be part of the team in delivering a good cause: If the student is capable
 
and has an intrinsic interest to better the education for the region, we will be more than
 
happy for him or her to be on board. Successful candidates will be able to carry on this
 
exciting journey even after the FYP project is completed.

+
<span style="color:blue"><b>Contact</b></span>
Many training programmes end once the workshop is over. Participants remember what they learnt for a short time after the programme. Without follow-up, they tend to lose the information and forget what they have learnt during the session. In addition, training materials on booklets or even modules on websites are one-sided and do not engage or entice participants to go into the website or follow-up with additional readings/materials.

<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Description</b></span>
+
== The Kids Network - Mobile engagement app ==
As the landscape for learning continues to develop with many looking towards MOOCs (Massive Online Open Courses). We are looking to retain and further engage existing participants by developing a learning website/platform that facilitates continuous self-directed training/learning materials in a personalized and engaging manner that would entice participants to go into the website/platform to engage in further learning about the module.
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>About Us</b></span>
 +
The Kids Network (TKN) is a Netball academy that provides Netball trainings for children 6 to 12 years old. The players are split into different teams/classes base on their age group to train further. As of April 2019, we have 80 players, 6 different class and 9 coaches. We train on a weekly basis at Kallang Netball Centre. Kallang Netball Centre is an outdoor venue. This means that when it rains, our training will be postponed. Like local schools, we run in terms. Fees are collected on a termly basis. Every term, to ensure our players gain court experience and apply the skills they learned, we will organise friendly games or sign the teams up for suitable netball carnivals.
  
As with many of our training modules, social or peer-to-peer evaluation provides an avenue for participants to receive appraisals for their continued growth.  Peer-to-peer interaction on the platform itself would be value-add to facilitate social learning on a learning platform.
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Deliverables</b></span>
 
+
Develop a mobile App on both Andriod and IOS systems to help us connect and engage better with our parents. The App should include the abilities to:
The website/platform aims to be service partners to L&D departments to track and actively participate in the employee's learning and development. 
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Value Proposition</b></span>
 
To develop a new way of learning/engaging participants that is in line with the way people currently engage with technology and social media. To create a platform that facilitates structured social and self-directed learning.
 
 
 
To encourage personal mastery by supporting participants with continuous training resources in an engaging manner that entices participants to use the platform.
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Uniqueness</b></span>
 
Current learning platforms are generally one-sided with no engagement factor to draw participants to learn more once the programme is over.
 
 
 
We are looking for a platform that would engage and excite participants to go in on a regular basis to explore the new learnings and sharings that might be curated and available on the platform.
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Scope</b></span>
 
To build a learning website/platform that engages participants to continue learning a specific module even after a training programme is completed.
 
 
 
<span style="color:blue"><b>Developmental Growth Areas for the Team </b></span>
 
As part of helping the team to develop the product and attain a more innovative solution, we will take the team through the concept of Design Thinking to help them use the DT approach to interview users (clients, training participants etc.) and to come up with more innovative solutions to the problem at hand.

About Shanghai Culture Assets and Equity Exchange (SHCAEE)
+
Evangeline (fun@thekidsnetwork.com.sg)
The Shanghai Culture Assets and Equity Exchange was set up in 2009 to offer trading services for assets such as copyrights, securities, tea, gemstones, art, and antiques. The exchange is supported by various government departments and serves an international network of buyers and sellers.
 
  
Blockchain and smart contract technologies are set to revolutionize many industries in the next few decades and one of the applications which stand to benefit is the trading of valuable assets. In this project, the goal is to develop a digital trading platform that utilizes smart contract and blockchain to allow buyers and sellers to trade assets such as jewelries, antiques, tea, and artworks in an efficient, reliable, and secure manner. The following are some of the desired features of this platform:
+
== ITI, SMU – Tracks Management System ==
*Users can bid/sell/exchange assets in a fair, secure, and reliable manner using technology built on smart contracts and blockchains
 
*Users will be able to track the movement of the asset as it moves from seller to buyer
 
*Innovative ways of using “network tokens”  will be one of the key differentiators  of this platform, this allows all stakeholders to benefit from the growth of the platform
 
  
<span style="color:blue"><b>Deliverable</b></span>
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>Brief requirements:</b></span>
The deliverables of this project shall be a Proof-of-Concept system comprising at least 5 nodes in a working prototype network and a web-based application will also be developed to test the system functionalities. The team will work closely with SHCAEE to ensure that the features of the system is in line with the industry best practices. The goal is for the prototype to be eventually adopted and used by SHCAEE in a live setting.
+
Every semester, students are required to fill in the admission forms and then email the processing officers to submit the admission forms and required documents separately. The completion of track requirements are also handled and managed manually. This leads to problems in - managing applications, tracking of requirements and slow reporting. In addition to this, the admission process is not transparent to students which results in multiple queries on track status and completion. The goal of the 'Tracks Management System' is to computerize the admission management system structure, its related operation, and functionality to rectify these weaknesses. Also, the purpose is to provide support to the administration and admission seeking candidates by providing a faster, transparent, and easy way of maintaining records and utilize them for reference and further proceedings such as alumni management and reporting analytics.

TEE International Limited (“TEE” or together with its subsidiaries and associate companies, “TEE Group”) was established in the 1980s, and has grown from a general electrical contractor to an established Integrated Engineering, Real Estate and Infrastructure Group. With its operations spanning across Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong and New Zealand, TEE Group continues to focus on its core Engineering specialisation to grow its Infrastructure business alongside its complementary Real Estate business.
#Take inputs of Spot, various Option Premiums, interest rates, and Time, either manually input or automatically updated via API, and derive outputs of:
 
##payoff diagrams (visualized outputs) and
 
##Delta
 
#Using the derived Delta values, the probability distribution function would need to be derived.
 
#The pdf is then plotted as an overlay on the payoff diagram
 
#Return the net probability-adjust payoff for any given combination of Options entered by the user
 
#2, or more, simultaneous sets of computations are required (as represented by the green and orange lines in the provided screenshot)
 
#Scales on the diagram must be automatically adjusted to fit the output values, but also can be manually manipulated.
 
  
The X-factor of this project is that there is currently no such app available to the non-professional trader. This will be used commercially and be the first of its kind.

==SAS Institute - Driving Analytics Innovation in Financial Services Industries==
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>What we need you to solve?</b></span>
<span style="color:blue"><b>About SAS:</b></span>
 
SAS is the leader in analytics. Through innovative analytics, business intelligence and data management software and services, SAS helps customers at more than 83,000 sites make better decisions faster. Since 1976, SAS has been giving customers around the world THE POWER TO KNOW®.
 
  
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Background & Requirements:</b></span>
+
Today, more than 70% of carparks are using the Electronic Parking System (EPS). EPS in a carpark can cost up to $150,000. It consists of a cashless system that uses EPS antenna to read the number of ERP In-Vehicle Unit (IU) at the entry and exit of the carpark. Kiosks are also required for drivers to top up their cash cards.
This project seeks for an innovative solution for the Financial industry; mainly in the RegTech and Financial Inclusion categories.  
 
  
<span style="color:blue"><b>Project Scope:</b></span>
+
EPS faces issues such as tailgating, double charging and long queues at barriers when drivers do not maintain sufficient funds. A move to an app-based payment system based on License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology will help to reduce infrastructure cost, enhance driver experience and support Singapore’s push towards electronic payments via PayNow.
Participants will be expected to use SAS Viya and other SAS/3rd-party tools that may be required for their solution development. Not only could this project result in novel/innovative solutions with tangible business value for the customers, it could also offer an excellent opportunity to obtain hands-on experience on an enterprise grade analytics platform.
 
  
The problem statements for this project have been preselected and the team should select only one of these problem statements for their IS480 Final Year Project:
+
<span style="color:blue"><b>How do we co-create and have fun together? </b></span>
  
===39 Reimagining Credit Underwriting & Scoring===
+
The Project Team will have the opportunity to work on Tee International's new technologies such as its License Plate Recognition (LPR) system and e-parking kiosks. These systems are currently used live at Changi Airport and Seng Kang hospital.
Existing credit underwriting models do not leverage new sources of qualitative and quantitative information. In addition, SMEs face challenges in credit evaluation as they do not have necessary audited financial statements. How can we improve and refine existing underwriting models and credit scoring for individuals and SMEs that leverage non-traditional qualitative and quantitate data sources?
 
*Participants should identify sources of qualitative and quantitative information, which can be used to predict customer behavior. Develop a technique/solution to capture/crawl this data, clean and structure it
 
*Build segmentation and predictive model(s). Design & build a user-friendly interface (e.g. website) that allows end-users (e.g. banks/credit institutions) to easily perform the necessary credit scoring & evaluation to drive their lending decisions.
 
  
===48 Automated Risk Analysis===
+
The Project Team is expected to envision, design and build the Next Gen Parking System that aims to replace the current EPS. The Next Gen Parking System must integrate with the following existing technologies and the team is required to study these technologies in sufficient detail to support them with the integration.
Currently, there is no way to effectively enable institutions to track and monitor counterparty risk and market exposure in real time. How do we develop a smart system that automates this analysis taking into account sanctions, AML (anti-money laundering) and KYC (Know-your-client) data and regulatory rules, to mitigate risks and exposure?
 
*Participants should identify sources of information, which can be used for real-time monitoring of factors impacting counterparty risk and market exposure. Develop a technical solution to capture/collect these data in real time, clean and structure it. As multiple real-time data sources are collected, participants are expected to also cross-check these sources against each other to ensure data integrity/accuracy
 
*Provide aggregated analysis of counterparty risk and market exposure; including building models to predict the future trends of these risks/exposure
 
*Design & build a user-friendly interface (e.g. dashboard accessible via web and/or mobile devices) that end-users (e.g. banks) can use to monitor these risks and set alert/warning indicators where risk/exposure limits have been breached.
 
  
<span style="color:blue"><b>CORE Requirements are:</b></span>
+
#The Sponsor's License Plate Recognition System
*Project clearly answers the problem statement of choice
+
#The Sponsor's Parking Payment Kiosk
*A functional user interface with a great user experience which provides ease of navigation through a well-designed layout.
+
#SGQR, Singapore's single QR code that combines multiple e-payment solutions into one. See http://www.mas.gov.sg/sgqr/index.html
*The website and must be in a mobile responsive web design
 
*Usage of use SAS Viya and other SAS/3rd-party tools for development
 
*Clearly defined users/end-users and the exact pain points that the solution seeks to address
 
*Well-developed prototype/solution with an easy-to-use interface for its intended users/end-users
 
*Creative & meaningful integration of key data sources that reflect a compelling and unique solution proposition
 
*Presentation/delivery of the solution in a suitable interface (e.g. website, app)
 
*Usage of SAS Viya is mandatory. Other SAS/3rd-party tools may be used as well.  
 
  
<span style="color:blue"><b>Secondary Requirements are:</b></span>
+
The Project Team shall deploy and conduct live trials of their system at Tee Building. This will involve gathering and analysing data and getting user feedback. The Project Team should plan to have a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) deployed as soon as possible, preferably by the end of midterm.
*On top of the core requirements, team can choose to present their solutions in the form of an Android/iOS application pertaining to the problem statements above
 
“Good to Have” Requirements are:
 
*An end to end analytics platform from data management to discovery to deployment
 
*Visualization (if any) being deployed using SAS Visual Analytics
 
*Incorporation of advanced analytics capabilities (e.g. predictive/prescriptive/cognitive) that extends the solution beyond a data aggregation platform. Key elements of a good solution would likely include (but not limited to):

#Currently, Singapore lacks a dedicated project management web module suitable for construction staff of all educational level. We have been sourcing around but there are little market solutions as the industry is more traditional. SMU-X had previously created an accounting and budget management module for us. We wish to expand on this module by adding in project management and HR Management services. This would greatly benefit construction companies and improve efficiencies. An area the government and companies have been attempting for a long while.
 +
#An example of how this module could work would be https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gwk71zovsz3hqyf/AABMcmlzTOTMOSwwGqnkt7xTa?dl=0This is not the fixed module and we are open to discussion with you

SIWMA - SIWMA trading portal

About SIWMA Establish in 1982, SIWMA is a trade association representing the iron merchants in Singapore i.e. structural steel and metal works, roofing, steel material stockists etc. A key aim of the Association is to promote sharing of skills, ideas and better co-operation to enhance productivity among fellow iron merchants.

About project The intended online trading portal is for SIWMA’s members to inter-trade and share resources amongst themselves helps to cut back on wastes and improve productivity and hence bottom-line. “One man’s thrash is another man’s treasure” For example, Company A has secured a steel railings project that would require a total of 50 pieces of each 6 meters long steel pipes to fabricate the steel railings. However, the cutting plan of the railings is only 4.5 meters long i.e. for each of the purchased 6 meters long steel pipes, only 4.5 meters are to be consumed, leaving 2 meters as “wastage” (see Figure 1 below). Figure 1 - Company A’s cutting plan

Along comes Company B, who has secured another project to fabricate steel barrier which according to its cutting plan, requires 48 pieces of each 1.5 meters long steel pipes. Company B, without communicating with Company A, would like likely go on to procure 12 pieces of 6 meters long pipe, calculated 1.5 meters x 48 pieces = 72 meters, to be divided by 6 meters to derive 12 pieces of 6 meters long raw materials, (see Figure 2 below). Figure 2 - Company B's cutting plan

If Company B had gotten in touch with Company A, then the two can barter a deal for the latter to sell is 2 meters “wastage” to the former at a below market price. The aim of the online trading portal is to provide a platform for members of SIWMA to post what they wish to sell or buy, and the respective companies’ procurement in-charge will have an additional avenue of materials to source from.

Key Features Imagine the popular Carousell trading portal, but with particular focus on heavy industrial raw materials, consumables, equipment etc. The following are preliminary features to be included:

  1. Marketplace – where several sellers and vendors offer products listings, in exchange for some marketplace fees (that can be per item sold, product category etc.).
  2. Custom Search & Navigation – Customised to the user’s preference and habits.
  3. Messaging & Notifications – Each seller and buyer have their own inbox, which allows them to communicate freely without administrative intervention.
  4. Mobile Friendliness – Online shopping is increasingly moving from desktops and laptops to smart phones and tablets. The portal must be easy to use on any type of device or screen size.
  5. Analytics Dashboard – Monitor trends from real-time data and take in feedbacks to evolve and improve the portal.

TWC2 - SalaryTracker

TWC2 is interested to build a mobile app inspired by Jornaler (also known as Jornalero).

About the Journaler Jornaler@ is a mobile phone application that combines technology with worker education for preventing wage-theft and other labour rights violations. The app has been tailored to the specific needs of undocumented migrant day laborers in the USA, who are among the most vulnerable members of the workforce. They do not have regular jobs, but instead seek casual work from different employers day by day. Over 50% of day laborers have experienced some type of wage theft (non-payment of wages).

The Jornaler@ application provides day laborers and worker centers with a recordkeeping and data sharing tool, which would help them to both prevent wage-theft incidence. Through a record of work hours, and together with the ability to store information about their casual employers, e.g. the car they drive, Jornaler@ helps workers prove their claims to their rightful wages legally.

About TWC2’s proposed SalaryTracker app. Unlike the context for Jornalero, our Singapore app is aimed at legal workers. There is therefore no need for the app to store information about the employer beyond the official name of their legal employer. Instead, the focus of the app is to counter the possibility of false claims by the employer in cases of wage disputes. E.g. the employer might deny that the worker worked overtime on such and such a day, or the employer might say that the worker never showed up at work at all. The employer might also miscalculate the rate of pay for overtime, thus coming up with a total salary that is less that the worker should get.

Features we’d like SalaryTracker to have

  1. Store data on the phone with export option
  2. Store key information such as worker ID, employer name, basic monthly salary.
  3. App should be able to store information for up to three employers/jobs simultaneously.
  4. “Punch Card” function, allowing the worker to enter the time he starts work and the time he ends work for each day of the calendar. Worker can either capture the phone system’s time, or manually key in a time (if the latter, app should also log what time he manually keyed in the time in/out.)
  5. Geolocation function. Worker should be able to capture his geolocation at any time. The app should log the time he captured his geolocation. This will help the worker prove that he was at work at such and such a time.
  6. Salary estimate function. The app should be able to estimate for the worker, based on his punch card data, what his salary for the month is. This allows him to know whether the amount he is eventually paid is correct.
  7. Supporting documents. The worker is prompted to take photos of time cards and salary slips that the employer produces, and which are either given to him or temporarily shown to him. The app should link to the images stored.
  8. Languages. English, Chinese, Bengali, Tamil, Burmese.
  9. And any other features students might recommend.

However, there are many myths surrounding surgery and there is strong need for providing right information to appropriate patients. Bariatric VR is designed for doctors to present data to patients in a visually immersive way covering educational videos on obesity and surgery, patient testimonials, co-morbidities related to obesity, and comparisons between the patient’s body pre and post-surgery.
  • Value Proposition: To create a unique, educational and immersive experience for patients to understand the challenges posed by morbid obesity and seek knowledge about treatment modalities including life transforming changes enabled by bariatric surgery.
  • Target users: Surgeons, physicians, bariatric counselors and patients

Functionality:

  • Synchronize: Unique Sync Code got from VR headset can be used to pair VR headset and iPad. After that, doctors with iPad are able to control what patients view in VR headset.
  • Short educational video on obesity and metabolic surgery
  • Patient Info: Input required questions like height, weight, pre-existing conditions in iPad. These answers are related with what will be shown later. There are also additional questions to help doctors know more about emotions of patients.
  • Related Stories: After patient info part, doctors can choose to play several videos related to bariatric surgery stories to build a more emotional background for patients before they talk about the surgery.
  • 3D Models: This is the main part of the demo. 3D human body models are shown here.

There are three modes in this part which are “Current Status”, “Projected Weight Loss” and “Comparison”. “Current Status” is showing the model similar to patients now. “Projected Weight Loss” is showing the model patients might be after the surgery. “Comparison” put two different models together to compare the changes directly.

Important parts of the body are highlighted, and detailed information will be provided when doctor click the spot. Doctors can use different types of contents such as texts, videos, 360° pictures, 360° videos.

The shape of the models and contents can be customized with questions before. By this way, patients get easier to listen and understand the doctor.

Values:

  • Build a conversation tool to facilitate doctor’s conversation with patients in a more vivid, and immersive way
  • Build a more caring and emotional environment to patients.
  • Make surgery information more friendly, acceptable and easier to understand.

Deliverable An AR/VR software solution with above features. The prioritization and exact details of the in-scope features can be discussed based on the hardware/software availability and project duration constraints.

The Kids Network - Mobile engagement app

About Us The Kids Network (TKN) is a Netball academy that provides Netball trainings for children 6 to 12 years old. The players are split into different teams/classes base on their age group to train further. As of April 2019, we have 80 players, 6 different class and 9 coaches. We train on a weekly basis at Kallang Netball Centre. Kallang Netball Centre is an outdoor venue. This means that when it rains, our training will be postponed. Like local schools, we run in terms. Fees are collected on a termly basis. Every term, to ensure our players gain court experience and apply the skills they learned, we will organise friendly games or sign the teams up for suitable netball carnivals.

Project Deliverables Develop a mobile App on both Andriod and IOS systems to help us connect and engage better with our parents. The App should include the abilities to:

  1. providing up-to-date training and games schedules
  2. send out reminders for fee payment and to make payment via the App itself
  3. sign & submit consent forms for friendly games
  4. show weather updates and disseminate information of postponed training due to wet weather
  5. allow parents to update their details

ITI, SMU – Tracks Management System

Brief requirements: Every semester, students are required to fill in the admission forms and then email the processing officers to submit the admission forms and required documents separately. The completion of track requirements are also handled and managed manually. This leads to problems in - managing applications, tracking of requirements and slow reporting. In addition to this, the admission process is not transparent to students which results in multiple queries on track status and completion. The goal of the 'Tracks Management System' is to computerize the admission management system structure, its related operation, and functionality to rectify these weaknesses. Also, the purpose is to provide support to the administration and admission seeking candidates by providing a faster, transparent, and easy way of maintaining records and utilize them for reference and further proceedings such as alumni management and reporting analytics.

Function list: Primary Functions

  • Users: Admin, Student, Alumni
  • Applications Management
  • Students and Alumni Management
  • Non-Credit Courses Management

Secondary Functions

What we need you to solve?

Today, more than 70% of carparks are using the Electronic Parking System (EPS). EPS in a carpark can cost up to $150,000. It consists of a cashless system that uses EPS antenna to read the number of ERP In-Vehicle Unit (IU) at the entry and exit of the carpark. Kiosks are also required for drivers to top up their cash cards.

EPS faces issues such as tailgating, double charging and long queues at barriers when drivers do not maintain sufficient funds. A move to an app-based payment system based on License Plate Recognition (LPR) technology will help to reduce infrastructure cost, enhance driver experience and support Singapore’s push towards electronic payments via PayNow.

How do we co-create and have fun together?

The Project Team will have the opportunity to work on Tee International's new technologies such as its License Plate Recognition (LPR) system and e-parking kiosks. These systems are currently used live at Changi Airport and Seng Kang hospital.

The Project Team is expected to envision, design and build the Next Gen Parking System that aims to replace the current EPS. The Next Gen Parking System must integrate with the following existing technologies and the team is required to study these technologies in sufficient detail to support them with the integration.

  1. The Sponsor's License Plate Recognition System
  2. The Sponsor's Parking Payment Kiosk
  3. SGQR, Singapore's single QR code that combines multiple e-payment solutions into one. See http://www.mas.gov.sg/sgqr/index.html

The Project Team shall deploy and conduct live trials of their system at Tee Building. This will involve gathering and analysing data and getting user feedback. The Project Team should plan to have a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) deployed as soon as possible, preferably by the end of midterm.

Some pointers on what you need to do

  1. Ideate and tell the story of how the future of car parking is with the adoption and adaptation of LPR, mobile apps and payment via SGQR.
  2. Design the UI and UX of the mobile apps through wire-framing.
  3. Define and setup the technology stack of the system infrastructure which includes the edge computing machine and cloud server.
  4. Define the software architecture for both the backend and frontend.
  5. Plan and breakdown the system and software development into sprints.
  6. . Develop, document, deploy and test the system and software in each iteration.
  7. Conduct live trials at Tee Building in Singapore.
  8. All documentation and source codes to be uploaded on Github.
