IT based Research Proposal - help needed watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently coming to the end of a Foundation Degree course in Engineering Management, and have just started our project: Network Performance Monitoring of a Live IT Network to gauge whether the perceived network problems are due to the network or servers, and whether there is a requirement for a further network upgrade project. Fine and dandy, no problems there.

    However, right at the start of the course we skimmed over a module on Research Methods, and the tutor didn't give us the assignment. He's now been hauled up for this, with the result the assignment landed on my desk yesterday with a deadline of 6 Aug. I need to write a research proposal to support the project we have selected (obviously pretending I wrote it before I'd gone through the project selection process!) and am having trouble with my arguments:

    I can find any number of documented reasons why network performance monitoring is a good idea.

    However, for a balanced research proposal I need to find referencable counter-arguments; which I currently can't!

    If anyone has any ideas, they'd be greatly appreciated.
