This is an individual assignment and must be presented in a report format (2,000 words). It is important that your report

is properly structured. Also, as this is an academic paper, you should draw on contemporary literature to support your

paper. Remember that this individual report accounts for 50% of your module assessment. Hence, bad performance will have a

big impact on this module. An executive summary is not necessary in a report of this size.

Your report should include references to appropriate process technology and e-business literature (textbooks, journals and

websites). Care should be taken when consulting websites as they are not all equally authoritative (for example Wikipedia

is not peer-reviewed; therefore is not considered an academic reference website). A minimum of 5 different academic

references must be cited, but a well-researched report is likely to cite many more.

You are advised to keep a backup copy of the report until you receive your grade and regularly back-up your work in the

cloud (OneDrive, iCloud, Dropbox and GoogleDrive are good examples). A disk crash is not an acceptable reason for late

submission.
