This Major Qualifying Project (MQP), prepared for Communispace, documents the prototype for a vendor performance management system. To bring efficiency to the vendor selection process, the WPI team provided a multifunctional interface that allows for vendor searching based on previous performance and specific demographical tagging. The Vendor Performance and Relationship Management (VPRM) system was developed using the SDLC methodology. The needs and requirements for this system were gathered through stakeholder interview sessions and analysis of the as-is system. Documentation and an implementation plan will mitigate the risks in adoption. This prototype was built in Microsoft Access with live connections to Communispace’s existing SQL Database.
