Project Description:

Development and Maintenance of the Chemistry Department web site.   This duty includes the development of code and design analysis to maintain the website. Updating the latest events in the Chemistry department on the website. Part of the work includes the connectivity with the database to retrieve the information of the students appearing in the computer laboratory. The Chemistry lab has a Texas instrument machine for each student. The Professor assigns the homework in his system. This is transferred to all the students through the wireless hub to the texas instruments. The students will take it to home do their homework and again this work is transferred back to the professor's system. Each student needs a valid password and id to enter in to the system the programs for these validations and the updating of the databases is done by me in coldfusion Mx.

Inter Plan Teleprocessing , an application used to communicate/exchange the data between two BCBS units located at different places. All the BCBS that are participating in ITS business uses application software developed and distributed by BCBS Association, Chicago (BCBSA). All the BCBS units participating in ITS will have to pay administration and access fees, to the BCBSA. BCBS association is a governing body, which monitors the performance and caters to the needs of BCBS units participating in ITS. Performance (correctness and cycle time for each of the transactions) of the participating BCBS has a direct impact on the administration and access fees. Installation of the association software is one among the crucial in maintenance of ITS application.

Many In-house programs are written which act as interface between the regular BCBSMO Software and Association supplied software. Programs are developed to generate scheduled reports, performance tracking reports and reports as per specifications.

Contribution:

•  Analyzing the Specifications given by the user.

•  Coding as per the requirements and preparing the documents required as per the client standards.

•  Preparation of the jobs flow charts for the entire application and updating of the job flow charts for every software release.

•  Installation of software distributed by the Association.

•  Analyzing the impact on the in-house written programs, due to the new software release from association.

•  Preparation of the implementation plans for various work requests.

•  Preparation of test data for the BCBS QA team.

•  Designing various test plans to test the modifications made or applications developed.
