Abstract

The purpose of this project is to develop a reference model and a prototype system for training management activities at the Office of Defense Cooperation (ODC) in US Embassy, Kuala Lumpur. A reference model is important as it serves as a good starting point for system developers to understand users' requirements, and it saves time, resources and cost, reduces risk, improves effectiveness and efficiency, and reduces ambiguity. The prototype system, referred as ODC Training Support System (OTSS), will provide functionality that could not be fulfilled by a primary system, and subsequently complement the primary system in order to achieve synergy and greater productivity. The reference model was developed using a simplified version of Rational Unified Process (RUP) methodology, and Unified Modeling Language's (UML) notations. The database application for the prototype system was developed using Microsoft Access 2000, and the Web interface was developed using MySQL database server, HTML, PHP scripting language, and Apache Web server. The system was validated through system requirement testing and IBM's Computer System Usability Questionnaire. It was concluded that, users' requirements were met and the prototype system was operating well, however, the system's interface and functionality were recommended for further improvement. This project concludes by discussing problems and limitations that were encountered in completing this project, and offers a few recommendations for future development in this subject.
