Each student isexpected to produce a program and attach the program source code in a separate file to thefinal assignment report. All the program testing output screens must be included in thereport. This assignment brief consists of 2 sections, which need to be completed andpresented in a single report.Case Study / ScenarioYou are working for a software house who has a small and medium-sized enterprise (SME)customer that provides specific digital products to its clients. Your line-manager sent you arequest to develop a simple client registration program in order to store clients’ detail, suchas Client ID, Name, Address, Phone number, Email, and 5 categories based on the client’sselected products (Software, Laptops & PC, Games, Office Tools, and Accessories). As partof the software development team, you are going to develop a client registration system(CRS) that should have the following functions (options):1. Add (enrol) new client details/record.2. Search for any client details. (You can use Client ID as a primary key)3. Remove any client including all the client details.4. Print all the client’s details.5. Order the stored clients based on their names.6. Save the clients’ details into the file.Section 1 – LO1As a Lead Programmer for the software development team, you should produce a report,which explains the software development basic principles of the client registration system.The report should have the following: The definition of algorithm that outlines the process in developing the software applicationfrom the feasibility study stage up to the execution stage. You could further providedetailed steps from the execution stage with writing code and the program comments. Based on the scenario, you should provide an algorithm of the CRS to be developed.While making an implementation of your developed algorithm using Python programminglanguage. You should include in the explanation of the implementation, the relationshipbetween the algorithm and your Python code.Department of Information Technology Page 3 of 6Section 2 – LO2To ensure that your report includes set of findings and key contributions from researching thecharacteristics of different programming paradigms; procedural, event driven and objectoriented programming for the team to understand, how to develop a secured program.Further, it is important to compare the procedural, event driven and object orientatedparadigms with relevant source code examples. The report, on the programming paradigms,should also include an evaluation of your Python code related to different programmingparadigms according to its code structure and characteristics.Section 3 – LO3To support other team members to use the developed application including Python programby producing your software application in the form of a portfolio to help them understand thewhole software development process.Further, it is expected that you implement the defined algorithm into a functional Pythonprogram using any IDE of your choice and illustrate the outputs using screenshots andexecutional file. Your report should include evaluations of developing software applicationsusing an IDE versus non-IDEs.Section 4 – LO4Once the Python program has been developed, it is important to develop a software testingprocess. You have to test the functionality of the program and test procedure planning as arequirement to have a successful debugging and software testing. In view of this, you arerequired to produce a brief report explaining the process of debugging your program andexplain the debugging facilities that are available in the choice of your IDE.You are also required to ensure that best practices and coding standards are outlined, andyou have incorporated in writing the source codes using Python programming language.In your report, evaluate how debugging processes can support the development of moresecure and robust software applications, and provide recommendations for the team toimprove your program. Hence, it is important to make a simple critical evaluation for thebasics of coding standards and its benefits to your organisation. This can be used asguidance for both levels, the team (staff) level and individual (programmer) level.Note: the working application produced must also be demonstrated to the team.AppendicesYou should attach all the supporting programming codes as a separate file in the appendixsection of your assignment report.• Programming Code with commentsRelevant InformationTo gain a Pass in a BTEC HND Unit, you must meet ALL the Pass criteria; to gain a Merit,you must meet ALL the Merit and Pass criteria; and to gain a Distinction, you must meet ALLthe Distinction, Merit and Pass criteria.Department of Information Technology Page 4 of 6 Learning Outcomes and Assessment CriteriaPassMeritDistinctionLO1 Define basic algorithms to carry out an operation and outline the process of programming anapplicationP1 Provide a definition of what analgorithm is and outline theprocess in building an application.M1 Determine the steps taken fromwriting code to execution.D1 Examine theimplementation of analgorithm in a suitablelanguage. Evaluate therelationship between thewritten algorithm and thecode variant.LO2 Explain the characteristics of procedural, object-orientated and event-driven programming, conduct ananalysis of a suitable Integrated Development Environment (IDE)P2 Give explanations of whatprocedural, object-orientated andevent-driven paradigms are; theircharacteristics and therelationship between them.M2 Analyse the common features thata developer has access to in an IDE.D2 Critically evaluate thesource code of anapplication whichimplements theprogramming paradigms, interms of the code structureand characteristics.LO3 Implement basic algorithms in code using an IDEP3 Write a program thatimplements an algorithm using anIDE.M3 Use the IDE to manage thedevelopment process of the program.D3 Evaluate the use of anIDE for development ofapplications contrastedwith not using an IDE.LO4 Determine the debugging process and explain the importance of a coding standardP4 Explain the debugging processand explain the debugging facilitiesavailable in the IDE.P5 Outline the coding standardyou have used in your code.M4 Evaluate how the debuggingprocess can be used to help developmore secure, robust applications.D4 Critically evaluate why acoding standard isnecessary in a team as wellas for the individual. 1. Preparation guidelines of the Coursework Documenta. All coursework must be word processed.b. Avoid using “Textbox” in writing your assignment.c. Document margins must not be more than 2.54 cm (1 inch) or less than 1.9cm (3/4 inch).d.
