Synopsis: Management and users make important decisions based on system outputs. Outputs present information to system users. Outputs, the most visible component of a working information system, are the justification for the system. These outputs are produced from data that is either retrieved from databases or, more often, input by users. Good input and output design can make the difference in whether or not an information system is used effectively. User interface design provides a roadmap or dialog that integrates the inputs and outputs.
In this milestone you will design outputs, inputs, and user interface for the Customer Response System.
Objectives: After completing this milestone, you should be able to: • Design a GUI output screen and printed computer outputs. • Design a GUI input screens that use the proper screen-based controls. • Design a GUI screen that integrates the above outputs and inputs.
Prerequisites: Before starting this milestone the following topics should be covered: 1. Output design – Chapter 15 2. Input design – Chapter 16 3. User interface design – Chapter 17
Assignment: The goal of this project is to design outputs, inputs, and a user interface to track employee data.
