The objective of this project is to identify, evaluate and recommend a browser-based workgroup collaboration tool. The IPRO team will develop a requirement definition for a browser-based workgroup collaboration tool by interviewing selected personnel at General Motors Electro-Motive Division (EMD). Using this requirement definition, candidate solutions will be identified and evaluated. Based on a combination of factors, including weighted requirements, adherence to technology standards, and cost of implementation, the team will recommend at least two alternative solutions. The recommendation should identify the preferred solution and suggest a negotiating strategy and a deployment strategy for that solution. At the end of the project, the team will be able to provide a requirement definition, weighted by importance, an evaluation matrix depicting each solution considered, a summary evaluation of each solution considered, and a recommendation of the software, hardware, negotiating strategy and deployment strategy for two possible solutions.
