The scope of SDIL’s engagement was to provide a turnkey solution, which included a robust and flexible software design and the hardware required. The application was required to implement business processes to manage loans, repayment, retirement benefits, premiums and contribution in a flexible manner and to allow for changes in
policies and eligibility criteria. SDIL prepared a roadmap for the implementation of the solution, which included system study, user interaction, designing of the solution, development, testing, procurement and deployment of the required hardware, deployment of the application for user testing and
final roll out.
The process of creating a shortlist of eligible officers for the various promotion exams conducted 3 times a year required MT2 to maintain the latest data for all officers with details of their service history. Subsequently, they needed to be allocated examination centres based on the proximity of the place of deputation. Once the exams were taken, the results needed to be stored and processed and ‘cut-offs’ declared based on a complex algorithm using inputs like number of officers appearing, the number of vacancies/positions available, number of officers scoring above a certain percentage. There are a number of eligibility and exemption criteria to be considered in each case, which also keep changing over a period of time. Various ‘arms / corps’ within the Army have different rules as well, which also need to be consideredMT2
The scope of SDIL’s engagement required study and analysis of the existing manual process and design a system that automates the process and facilitates the use of an OMR scanner and captures and updates data automatically in the database .SDIL prepared a roadmap for the implementation of the solution, which included system study, user interaction, designing of the solution using .Net technologies, development, testing, deployment of the application for user testing and final roll out. The challenge was to build an application which exploited the technical features available with the latest technology and yet give the end users a very similar experience with the User Interface, as they were used to the legacy system. SDIL used the prototyping phase during Analysis and Design to expose the users to the rich user experience that was possible with the latest technology. This enabled SDIL to build a more user friendly and intuitive system. Business layer was made more robust and object oriented, by exploiting
the features of .Net
