Model Answer 1:
Let me talk about the project I did in a team in the second year of my graduate school. Our tutor gave us an assignment to review the server log of an international trade website and give a brief analytics using the data warehouse and data mining technology. We had three people in the team, and I was the team leader. I allocated different tasks to different classmates, one was responsible to extract the data from the database to the data warehouse, and the other one was to set up the data model for analyzing. I was to analyze the final data set with a data mining software and prepare the presentation.
The job was quite tough as this was our first time to do such assignment and we needed to overcome various technique problems. For example, we had to use the Microsoft database software to restore the data and write codes to manipulate the data transferring. Besides, the data mining software was also new to us; we had to get ourselves familiar with it.
Our team spent three weeks to finish the work which we reckoned it as an authentic project in corporation. Therefore we tried to learn the entire process of doing project, the demand analysis, project design and implementation, and the documents. As well as that, we learned some useful software and gained some coding experiences.
