Task I Business Information Systems and Process (8%)

Choose any one of the topics on business information systems for this task using a published case study. Some

suggested topics/areas are (but not limited to):

a. Business Process Improvement (BPI)

b. Business Process Re-engineering (BPR)

c. Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

d. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

e. Supply Chain Management (SCM)

f. Lean Operation

g. Six Sigma

For example, you could choose the BPR topic and use Qantas as a case study. Summarise the main findings

from the case study to demonstrate your understanding of the philosophies of BPR. You could discuss the

topic at a conceptual level, e.g. what is BPR, some background information, advantages and disadvantages,

use the case study to illustrate how practical BPR is. Then you could discuss the high-level results (fail or

success, how much they save cost), other interesting aspects such as the lessons learned, main challenges, the

critical success factors, etc.

1. You need to choose a topic and/or case such that the information is available and can be easily obtained.

Include at least four significant1 references – cite them in the body of your response and list them at the

end of the report. Use the American Psychological Association (APA) style of referencing

(https://guides.lib.monash.edu/citing-referencing/apa).

2. You will also require approval from your tutors for the topic you chose. You are advised to finalise the

topic by Week 9’s tutorial.

3. This part (Task I write-up) should be approximately 800 words (+/- 10%) in length.

Oral Presentation – you will present your case study during Week 11 and Week 12 Tutorials. Your tutors will

let you know about your presentation time in advance, e.g. in Week 10. All teams should submit their

presentation slides (pptx or pdf format) to Moodle by the due date, regardless of their presentation being in

Week 11 or Week 12.

1. Each presentation shall be no more than 8 minutes (including Question-and-Answer session). All team

members are expected to participate in the presentation.

2. You will also be required to review and provide feedback on other students’ presentations (peer-review).


Task II Business Process Improvement & Lean Operations (10%)

Find and analyse a business process that can be improved or redesigned. Some suggested business processes

are (but are not limited to):

a. A retailer or a service business – the problematic business processes causing unsatisfactory customer

experience can range from the selection of a product or service to the post-sale services. This could

include businesses selling the products or services in either a physical store or online stores.

Considering customers’ bad experiences, choose one particular business process with the most

potential to improve.


1 These may include websites and newspaper articles and should be as current and substantive as possible – you are expected to

provide at least two published peer-reviewed academic articles, e.g. journal, conference article, book, book chapter. You should

acknowledge all sources of information.

b. A local government services – find some of the business processes designed by local councils, state or

federal government agencies or government authorities that can be improved. For example, which

processes can be improved when a resident is applying for a parking permit or registering a pet in the

local council, registering a car or getting a driver license from the local traffic authority?

c. An insurance provider – find some of insurance claim processes that are inefficient and/or ineffective.

The insurance policies include, but are not limited to, health insurance, car insurance, building and/or

content insurance, travel insurance, and more. The improvement of the process could be similar to the

example in Lecture 4, but your selected policy and process should be more comprehensive and on a

larger scale.


1. You are advised to consult your tutors about the business process you are going to analyse to determine

its suitability for this task. Do not use a case study that has already discussed the detailed improvement

process and results, but find processes that you can demonstrate your high-level analytical skills of

business process improvement.

2. You are required to seek information from various sources, e.g. company website, forums, etc. However,

you are not required to contact the organisation for information. You may make reasonable assumptions,

justify them in the report, and support them with references if appropriate.

3. Describe your selected business process in its current situation (in narration).

4. You could also model the current business process using the graphical tools that are discussed in this unit

(e.g. system flowcharts, process flowcharts, etc).

5. Critique and discuss the aspects that are inefficient and/or ineffective in the current business process.

6. Propose a new business process model, justify how the business process is improved. Discuss what

business process improvement approaches/techniques/principles/philosophies are applied.

7. You should use analytical tools and/or quality tools discussed in this unit (e.g. General Process Charts in

Lecture 4, Cause-Effect Diagrams in Lecture 6b, etc.) to carry out business process performance analysis

for the current and the proposed new business process. State your assumptions as and when necessary.

8. A summary of the roles that Information Technology (IT) /Business Information System (BIS) played in

the proposed new business process.

9. We do not expect groups to present or rephrase the contents of Task I of this assignment in Task II, this

task should be different from your Task I contents.

10. Include at least four significant2 references – cite them in the body of your response and list them at the

end of the report. Use the American Psychological Association (APA) style of referencing

(https://guides.lib.monash.edu/citing-referencing/apa).

11. This part should be approximately 1500 words (+/- 10%) in length.
