Intranet for project and document management
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
For a software developing company, it is important to have a system that keeps track of different projects with related documentation and data. Without a proper system, it can be hard to find needed information and time consuming, especially if there is much data in the system.
RealTest AB is an IT consultant company located in Västerås that deals with this problem. All of their projects and their information are stored in a folder structure on a server that the employees have access to. This “system” does not have a smart way of finding data and there is no kind of version control of the existing information and this often leads to duplicated data.
The purpose of this project was to provide a smarter and more efficient way of handling projects and documents for RealTest. The project resulted in an intranet solution based on Microsoft SharePoint that takes care of the mentioned problems. This paper describes the design and implementation of certain features of the intranet, such as document management, generation of unique project/document numbers and dynamic webpages. The paper also reviews strengths and weaknesses of existing intranet solutions and application platforms.
The conclusions of the conducted research together with meetings with our advisor at RealTest and feedback from demonstrations for the employees led to the first version of the intranet. Since the project only lasted for 10 weeks, time limited us from developing all of the planned features and therefore we were not able to deliver a finished product. However, we managed develop a stable foundation for the intranet which will be finalized by the employees of the company.
