Abstract

Conducting aFinal Year Project (FYP) at UTP often needs lecturers to be the supervisors
for the students to ensure that the projects run smoothly and follow the requirements and
objectives ofthe FYP itself. Even though the projects run on track but there is aproblem
faced by the lecturers especially on the format of the reports submitted by the students.
When they are doing the FYP, the student have to submit reports such as Preliminary
Report, Progress Report, Interim Report and others to their supervisors to show some
progress regarding their project. However, sometimes they did not follow the format that
the FYP committees and coordinator have stated in the guideline. Hence, the format of
the report is not standardized between the lecturers and supervisors even though there is a
guideline available. Thus, this project intends to develop a web-based system that can
help students to simplify the above activities. The system shall provide facilities to the
students to choose the type oftheir report and then the system will show the only format
for that report. In order to prepare this system in an effective way, many considerations
need to be looked into which requires some research of the suitable programming
language or software that will be used for developing this system. Interviews with FYP
committees and coordinator have been conducted to clarify the real format of the report
which is important to the development of the system. Once the system has been
developed, a testing will be conducted that involved FYP students to test it to get the
feedback in order to improve the system. The project itself will be developed based on
the Phased Development-based Methodology where it is widely used for practical system
development and usually produces more stable and reliable systems. It has four main
phases which are planning, analysis, design and implementation. This report presents the
objectives, problem statements, scope of study as well as the methodology in further
detail. Besides that, relevant literatures are also presented to relate the project with some
existing ones. Lastly, the results of the project are presented and discussed, and
conclusions are drawn from them.
