Literature Review of Website Development
E-waste refers to discarded electronic and electrical equipment (EEE). Primarily, E-waste is the term used for electronic products that are near the end of their service. These include televisions, VCRs, computers, fax, machines, and others. It is prudent to understand that E-waste can be recycled or reused as a new product (Grossman, 2006). The E-waste project proposal by Otago polytechnic was established to investigate on cost effective measures that can be applied in the disposal of unused, old, or miscellaneous goods from the institution. The electronic waste will thereafter be listed in the institution’s website where it will be distributed to students, staff, and the community.
With each year of operation, Otago Polytechnic has overseen vast amounts of electrical and electronic waste that unnecessarily cost the organization. In fact, the institution saw it necessary to reduce the costs incurred for disposing the electronic equipment by making them available to students and staff through a developed website. E-waste is based on a web design that requires little costs to start and maintain, thus the costs of deploying the project versus the prospected outcome are tremendous. However, it is expected that technical risk of medium nature will be experienced as the website goes through the development course of action.
E-waste is the term used for electronic products that are near the end of their service. Electronic waste is considered the fastest growing section of the environmental and human health conservation reforms in the society. The E-waste project proposal by Otago polytechnic was mainly established to investigate on cost effective measures that can be applied in the disposal of unused, old, or miscellaneous goods from the institution. With each year of operation, Otago Polytechnic has overseen vast amounts of electrical and electronic waste that unnecessarily cost the organization. It was necessary to establish a viable means of curbing this vice to minimize or eliminate the costs incurred with the waste. In accordance with Otago polytechnic, the Agile Development Framework method was best suited to execute this project, and indeed this was a convenient method choice to execute the set objectives of this project.
The literature review was able to establish that the Otago Polytechnic e-waste project will be based on a web design requiring little costs to start and maintain. The premise ascertains the vision and mission of the institution to lower its cost of operation. However, the literature review of the e-waste project indicated the management behind it should have endeavored to administer an internet-based survey to formulate proper recycling and collection programs. This should have also included an assurance of that annual waste of electronic appliances in the institution would be managed in an effective way that conserves resources, and protects both the environment and human health. Should these two requirements have been incorporated in the project, then the project would be considered to have conformed to full requirements and fully effective (California Integrated Waste Management Board., 2007).
