  2. After company presentation, the team will design the specific application for an activity (like: supply chain, production, sales).
  3. The implementation will contain the framework and many important functions of application.


In the last three labs of the semester the designed projects will be presented.

  1. The team will give a general evaluation of the project in accordance with:
    1. the overall quality of the project;
    2. tools and technologies used in design and implementation;
    3. individual contribution of every team member.
  2. Every team member will give a personal qualification on its own activity in the team and will state what he(she) learned during the overall activity in the team.

The final mark will be given by the above considerations in the overall context of projects:

  1. project value between all the projects;
  2. team evaluation
  3. individual contribution.
