This assignment will be undertaken in groups of Three or Four students. Based on the below project case study
provided, students are required to write the project proposal by adding extra 3 functional requirements.
This project is aimed at developing an Online Banking for customer. The system is an online application that can
be accessed throughout the organization and outside as well with proper login provided.
The project has been planned to have a simple MVC architecture, with a centralized storage of the database. The
user interfaces have to be designed using HTML or HTML5 and CSS styling when necessary. The middleware can
be developed using PHP scripts along with the SQL queries.
Following are the functional needs of the system:
1. Customer must have a valid user ID and password to login to the system. (You can have a hardcoded user
details to start with in the back end. Also have initial balance to start with zero)
2. After the valid user logs in, the system shows the present balance in that particular account.
3. Customer can perform transactions like deposit and withdrawal from his account.
4. Proper help to be provided as and when requested by the customer.
5. Transfer of funds to other accounts.
6. Deposit of funds by the client.
7. You need to keep track of all the transactions for future references as this is supposed to be show the
customer as a statement.
8. Faster balance enquiry.
9. The system should also have another type of user who is an Administrator of the system.
10. Administrator can see, add, edit and remove any customers from the banking list.
11. Username and password authentication for login to the site
12. So, all the above-mentioned tasks should be interacting with the Database in the backend using SQL
queries along with the PHP scrips in the middleware and HTML, HTML5 and CSS for the front end.
13. When a user logs out after depositing funds or transferring funds and then logs in back again, the old
transactions along with the updated balance should not be lost.
Design Solution Report should include the following:
1. Title Page
2. Table of Contents
3. Rationale – providing essential background of the problem and why a need for the system to be
4. Requirements Analysis
2.1 Defining of the system overall functionality
2.2 Analysis of users’ requirements
5. System Elements and Functional Design – providing overall system functionality and its elements using
DFDs. A sufficient set of data flow diagrams is required to understand the complete system.
6. Database Design – consisting of two parts. First part provides all entities needed for the system and
show relationships among them (using ERDs). Second part, mapping the ERDS to tables with appropriate
attributes, data type sand formats.

A written assignment undertaken in groups of three or four students in the form of a report .addressing a selected
topic related to abovementioned project. This assessment is a group project/activity and students are required
to work with their respective groups. No individual submission will be accepted. You will not receive any marks
for this assignment if your group members collectively report against you for non-participation or noncooperation. You have to nominate someone as your group leader to coordinate the assignment submission. Only
one submission is accepted for each group.
The assignment must be submitted online in Moodle. All materials MUST be submitted electronically in Microsoft
Word format. Other formats (e.g., pdf or MAC file) may not be readable by markers. Please be aware that any
assessments submitted in other formats will be considered LATE and will lose marks until it is presented in MS
Word. No paper based or hardcopy submission will be accepted.
Our Academic Learning Support (ALS) team would be happy to help you with understanding the task and all other
assessment-related matters. For assistance and to book one-on-one meeting please email one of our ALS
coordinators (Sydney [email protected]; Melbourne [email protected] ). For online help and support
please click the following link and navigate Academic Learning Support in Moodle.

Content for Assessment Task papers should incorporate a formal introduction, main points and conclusion.
Appropriate academic writing and referencing are inevitable academic skills that you must develop and
demonstrate in work being presented for assessment. The content of high-quality work presented by a student
must be fully referenced within-text citations and a Reference List at the end. Kent strongly recommends you
refer to the Academic Learning Support Workshop materials available on the Kent Learning Management System
(Moodle). For details please click the link
and download the file titled “Harvard Referencing Workbook”. This Moodle Site is the location for Workbooks
and information that are presented to Kent Students in the ALS Workshops conducted at the beginning of each
Kent recommends a minimum of FIVE (5) references in work being presented for assessment. Unless otherwise
specifically instructed by your Lecturer or as detailed in the Unit Outline for the specific Assessment Task, any
paper with less than five (5) references may be deemed not meeting a satisfactory standard and possibly be failed.
Content in Assessment tasks that includes sources that are not properly referenced according to the “Harvard
Referencing Workbook” will be penalised.

Marks will be deducted for failure to adhere to the word count if this is specifically stated for the Assessment Task
in the Unit Outline. As a general rule there is an allowable discretionary variance to the word count in that it is
generally accepted that a student may go over or under by 10% than the stated length.
References are assessed for their quality. Students should draw on quality academic sources, such as books,
chapters from edited books, journals etc. The textbook for the Unit of study can be used as a reference, but not
the Lecturer Notes. The Assessor will want to see evidence that a student is capable of conducting their own
research. Also, in order to help Assessors, determine a student’s understanding of the work they cite, all in-text
references (not just direct quotes) must include the specific page number(s) if shown in the original. Before
preparing your Assessment Task or own contribution, please review this ‘YouTube’ video (Avoiding Plagiarism
through Referencing) by clicking on the following link:
A search for peer-reviewed journal articles may also assist students. These type of journal articles can be located
in the online journal databases and can be accessed from the Kent Library homepage. Wikipedia, online
dictionaries and online encyclopaedias are acceptable as a starting point to gain knowledge about a topic but
should not be over-used – these should constitute no more than 10% of your total list of references/sources.
Additional information and literature can be used where these are produced by legitimate sources, such as
government departments, research institutes such as the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC),
or international organisations such as the World Health Organisation (WHO). Legitimate organisations and
government departments produce peer reviewed reports and articles and are therefore very useful and mostly
very current. The content of the following link explains why it is not acceptable to use non-peer reviewed websites
