    RYME WORLDWIDE´S VISION™ SYSTEM

    THE FUTURE OF INSPECTION CENTERS

    RYME WORLDWIDE can design, implement and maintain a state-of-the-art hybrid database architecture to ensure that the Management Information System (MIS) securely and reliably delivers services and information on a continuous basis.

    The database architecture proposed by RYME WORLDWIDE has been successfully implemented in several jurisdictional vehicle testing programs and continues to provide those programs with uninterrupted communications and program services. RYME WORLDWIDE will host the primary and secondary data sites with traditional secure clustered data servers. The primary and secondary data sites will be backed up by a tertiary tertiary backup, which will continue to be hosted on RYME WORLDWIDE, but will use the latest technologies in Microsoft’s Azure cloud. The RYME WORLDWIDE solution for MIS goes beyond traditional database architectures and provides a robust system-wide management solution that delivers great value. The Vehicle Inspection Systems Information Network (referred to as “VISION” or “MIS”) is much more than just a database. or “MIS”) is much more dynamic than traditional vehicle inspection database management solutions. Traditional systems essentially create a central repository for data collection, storage and access, however limited, to data. VISION is a high-level, customer-initiated resource management solution that integrates each component into one (1) web-based software application that automates and controls data storage logic, data analysis processes, system-wide access rules, user capabilities, user activity and server system functions.

    Integrated Management System for Inspection Centers

    CUSTOMER ACCESS

    As the system is a web-based portal, users simply need access to the Internet and a working web browser in order to facilitate access to VISION. Once a system user is logged in, they will be granted access to portals, software programs and applications necessary to perform the duties of their assigned user role. This creates a comprehensive, service-oriented solution where system users have access to the data and information they need on-demand, 24/7/365. RYME WORLDWIDE will work with Client to establish any particular restrictions on specific platforms.
    Any access to the Intranet and all platforms and software applications hosted on it, or to any front-end software applications, will be controlled by access rules applied to each system user account. System user accounts are the key to performing program duties and will be managed widely on a role (classification)-based access control schema, and by user-based permissions and/or restrictions that can be set individually, if necessary. RYME WORLDWIDE will work Client to define user roles and access rights for each role.
    Authorized RYME WORLDWIDE and Client administrators will have the ability to grant/restrict itemized access rights to any individual user. The master User Management application is available to authorized users via the Administrative Web-Portal.
    Access will be provided through a login screen that will require one or all of the following login authentication criterion to be successfully inputted:
    • Case Sensitive Username; and
    • Password;
    The access means will depend on the device being used to access the Intranet and on the application being accessed.

    DATA CAPTURE & ANALYSIS

    RYME WORLDWIDE designed VISION with the objective of providing government-level secure identity and access to important data for authorized system users. To meet the security demands for maintaining data security, the end-user demands for flexible access, and the compliance demands of local, Federal and jurisdictional regulations; RYME WORLDWIDE has designed VISION using Microsoft Server 2017 Identity & Access services, which provide policy-driven access to data through Dynamic Access Control – an Active Directory service built for Internet-based platforms that provides seamless remote access via DirectAccess. In order to satisfy business and regulatory requirements, RYME WORLDWIDE will implement Dynamic Access Control to automate
    system access governance. The RYME WORLDWIDE security design for the Database includes a customized, Dynamic Access Control feature set that will permit authorized Client and RYME WORLDWIDE administrators to perform the following capabilities via the Master User Application:
    • Allow content owners to tag their information, rather than restricting this ability to administrators.
    • Apply a central access policy to information in tagged files.
    • Provide access denied remediation when users cannot access information.
    • Configure central audit policies to log access to information so that it can be analyzed for auditing and forensicpurposes.
    • Protect specific sensitive information by automatically applying RMS protection.

    ADMINISTRATIVE CAPABILITIES

    RYME WORLDWIDE´s choice of operating system and design strategy will maximize administrative capabilities, automated management and security control across the Database architecture; delivering a virtualized data environment built for speed, security and reliability.
    For the Database system, RYME WORLDWIDE is proposing Microsoft SQL Server 2017. MS SQL Server 2017 will ensure VISION overcomes any potential challenges typically associated with older database systems, including:
    • Multiple and varied data sources
    • Inconsistent access to business data
    • Varied understanding of business data
    • Multiple versions of business applications
    • Inefficient business processes
    • Geographically diverse teams
    • IT-related downtime and delay
    • Limited resources
    • Limited budget

    RYME WORLDWIDE´s SQL Server 2017 proposed database platform meets each of these challenges by offering these key resolutions:
    1.Consolidate data sources by making data more accessible and actionable with reporting, scorecard, and dash board solutions that are scalable and can be imported and manipulated from external resources using familiar Mi crosoft Offices interfaces.
    2.Keep everyone on the same page by making sophisticated data analysis easier for everyone through simple data visualization tools.
    3.Make data more accessible by delivering Government-ready security and compliance with built-in data encryption.
    4.Avoid high capital, training & management costs by easily incorporating data into existing applications and work flows based on familiar Microsoft and other tools.
    MS SQL Server 2017 deployed as the database server for the Program Database will meet and exceed security objectives, providing
    mission-critical confidence that the Bangladesh network is secure and the data elements are accurate and protected.
    MS SQL Server 2017 is the most dynamic version of SQL Server products, expanding on a strong security track record that consistently
    reports the lowest database vulnerabilities among the major Relational Database Manager vendors.
    The RYME WORLDWIDE Database solution for the Program will deliver a robust, dynamic and secure database solution based on the Microsoft SQL Server 2017 platform. This platform will meet (and exceed) the performance, scalability and mission-critical availability needs of the Program.
    RYME WORLDWIDE believes it can deliver the strongest, most dynamic, and most secure database solution available in the vehicle testing industry today, within the requirements of the Program. The Microsoft Server 2017 Platform is just the surface of the capability and dynamism of RYME WORLDWIDE´s solution.

    Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART)

    In developing Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) for vehicle inspection programs, RYME WORLDWIDE created a turn-key solution that increases transparency while providing leading edge fraud detection and report services which improves RYME WORLDWIDE and government oversight and enforcement efforts in vehicle inspection programs.
    Rather than include detailed information regarding RYME WORLDWIDE´s SMART Application in its proposal, RYME WORLDWIDE would appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate its advanced capabilities and unparalleled abilities to manage vehicle inspection program data and activities. SMART automatically analyses data as it is being recorded during an inspection and from the vehicle being tested. Utilizing RYME WORLDWIDE´s proprietary algorithm and data from more than half of a billion inspection records from various vehicle testing programs across the globe, SMART will provide Client administrators with the tools needed to efficiently and effectively manage the system.

    With easy-to-navigate drop-down menus, users can navigate from one page to another in a very user-friendly manner. A list of all Inspection Centers can be viewed from one page, with links to information from each Inspection Centers making it very easy to find whatever information is desired through a variety of methods.

    Live and recorded video of official inspection taking place is used as an effective tool for government administrators to monitor the productivity and operations of official inspection activities.

    Storage and retrieval of photographs taken with each inspection can be retrieved with all other inspection related information.
    In addition, some jurisdictions require examiners to take photographs of failed inspection items, all of which will be included with test data in VISION.

    VISION provides authorized staff with the ability to send messages out to various users of testing equipment. Messages can include text, photos, attachments and any other information that needs to be distributed to either an individual examiner, Testing Centre or network-wide.

    REPORTS & REPORTING

    RYME WORLDWIDE will construct a VISION Data Warehouse that will serve as the repository for inspection data used to support the Client´s querying and reporting requirements. This data in an aggregate and summarized form will be specifically structured for querying, data analysis and reporting, and can be analyzed using SQL Analysis Services to build Analysis Service cubes, ad hoc queries, and SQL Reporting Services.
    VISION relies on SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to provide reports to Client and other approved stakeholders. Reporting Services is a server-based report generation software system that is a component of SQL Server. It can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports and is administered via SharePoint web interface. Users can interact with the Report Server web service directly, or use Report Manager, a web-based application that interfaces with the Report
    Server web service.
    With Report Manager, users can view, subscribe to, and manage reports as well as manage and maintain data sources and security settings. Reports can be delivered via e-mail or placed on the file system. Security is role-based and can be assigned to an individual item, such as a report or data source, a folder of items, or site wide. Security roles and rights are inherited and can be reviewed and modified by authorized personnel.

    VISION allows real-time access to information such as test history, vehicle repair history, registration status (for personnel and vehicle test report usage compliance rate) and effectiveness,
    as well as individual vehicle inspection history data. Information on individual vehicle repair history, registration and test effectiveness will be provided using a data warehouse.

    All reports will be able to be printed on a local printer or exported and stored in one or more of the following formats Comma Separated Values (CSV) format, text, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access), Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF), and Hypertext Markup Language/Extensible Markup Language (HTML/XML). Each report screen will contain a “Help” screen detailing the report parameters and any information requested by the Client.

    RYME WORLDWIDE will provide trigger reports requested by Client as well as the ability to construct new fraud and performance trigger reports. These reports can be delivered automatically via print, fax, disk, ftp, sms, email or result in the immediate notification by using event-based schedules (e.g. VIN Mismatch) to appropriate Client staff through desktop alarms. This functionality
    is provided by SQL Server and VISION. RYME WORLDWIDE will also provide enforcement tools to run these trigger reports and desktop alarms. Comprehensive Fraudulent Inspection Reports can be generated at any time using a VIN and RecordID in order to pinpoint a suspect test.
    Data comparisons to groups of similar vehicles are also made in order to determine the likelihood of a vehicle that has had an engine computer replaced but not properly updated by the service facility, as opposed to an actual fraudulent inspection.
    RYME WORLDWIDE will work with Client to develop quality control reports that enable thorough analysis of the patterns of testing data. VISION also provides Client with the ability to create Ad hoc query reports with end-of-previous-day data or all data for any period of time handling using the data warehouse. The query reports can provide information including, but not limited to, the number of inspections performed in a given time period (month, year-to-date, etc.) and the failure rate for a given time period.
    All ad-hoc reports shall be available for output to a local printer or available for export in one or more of the following formats:
    CSV, Text, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access), Adobe Acrobat (PDF), and HTML/XML. The VID shall allow simultaneous queries from multiple locations without disruption to the VID and with short report response times..

    INTEGRATED SOFTWARE ON INSPECTION LINES (ITL)

    RYME WORLDWIDE DATA EXCHANGE PROTOCOLS – WEB SERVICES

    Data exchange between VISION and Integrated Test Lane (ITL) Software is implemented using secure web services. These services are authored using either ASP.NET or Windows Communication Foundation and reside on VISION’s Application Server. Data will automatically be securely transmitted to Client in an interface that is acceptable to Client.
    The Web Services Description Language (WSDL) is used to describe the “public” interface to each web service, and the ITL Software uses the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) to call one of the operations listed in the WSDL file.
    If a communication between the client and the VISION Application Server fails for any reason, the unsent data will continue to reside on the client and is marked as “unsent”. Subsequently, a successful communication will upload any unsent data that has not yet been received by VISION.

     

    USER FRIENDLINESS AND USABILITY

    RYME WORLDWIDE understands the importance of implementing a system that is both user-friendly and responsive while providing the advanced tools necessary to perform a successful vehicle inspection. In many vehicle testing programs, certain hardware, software, and procedures can overcomplicate the inspection process and perhaps even cause an incorrect determination of the vehicle’s inspection status.
    In order to overcome this, RYME WORLDWIDE has developed the most user-friendly inspection system available. From the hardware components and configuration to the software design and user-interface, RYME WORLDWIDE´s systems are developed nd built with ease-of-use, security and a shop environment in mind.
    In Bangladesh, RYME WORLDWIDE has proposed its proven hardware and software platforms as an ‘Off-the-Shelf’ solution that only needs to be customized to meet the specifications and requirements. Even though RYME WORLDWIDE Technical Teams will be onsite at inspection centers and with Client to assist with training and proper operations, RYME WORLDWIDE
    software and systems are designed to be setup and operated by a ‘Non-Technical’ user.
    The easy-to-use software will require very little to no examiner training and is based on self-explanatory principles and functional prompts that will guide the user through the various management and inspection processes.

    INSPECTION PROMPTS

    The Software guides the examiner through the testing process and instructs the examiner to perform mandatory tasks at certain
    points of the inspection. These prompts include instructing the examiner to perform an action, such as (at a minimum):
    • Scanning a barcode;
    • Manually entering data (where necessary); and
    • Confirming information and inspection results.
    • The inspection prompts feature the following data integrity checks (at a minimum):
    • Inspection prompts must be completed, and the information must be entered fully and properly in order for the examiner to proceed to the next step in the inspection process.
    • All data entered, either automatically or manually, will be checked against existing data logs and available databases for accuracy.
    • Software triggers will mine the data and the inspection results for irregularities based on the information provided.

    CLIENT ACCESS

    Any access to the Intranet and all platforms and software applications hosted on it, or to any front-end software applications, will be controlled by access rules applied to each system user account from interfacing with Client´s system. System user accounts are the key to performing program duties and will be managed widely on a role (classification)-based access control schema, and by user-based permissions and/or restrictions that can be set individually, if necessary.
    The master User Management application is stored within VISION and available to authorized users via VISION’s Administrative Web-Portal. Access will be provided through a login screen that will require one or all of the following login authentication criterion to be successfully inputted:
    • Case Sensitive Username; and
    • Password;
    The access means will depend on the device being used to access the Intranet and on the application being accessed and will work in conjunction with role manager tools.

     

    A FRIENDLY USER INTERFACE

    RYME WORLDWIDE believes a good and friendly user interface is one that allows users to carry out their intended actions or tasks effectively and efficiently, without distractions or questions as to how to proceed. Keeping that in mind, RYME WORLDWIDE has designed its user interface for its application as very simple and straight forward, allowing users to successfully perform inspections without hesitation, delay, or question without answer.
    RYME WORLDWIDE has implemented the following critical design aspects to ensure the most user-friendly design possible for a vehicle inspection application:

    Intuitive and Consistent Design The user interface in RYME WORLDWIDE´s application is consistent with the forms and applications found in an inspection environment. This creates a feeling of familiarity and simplicity for examiners and allows them to more easily begin using the system comfortably without issues. The software is consistent throughout the different forms and phases of the process, further allowing examiners to guide easily through a vehicle inspection without any delays or hesitation.

    • Clarity – Examiners can easily and clearly operate all functions of the inspection software without any ambiguity over the way the system operates. Software prompts are described quickly and concisely to users, providing them with the information that is needed in a clear and concise format, which can then be transferred to the motorist.

    • High Responsivity – The software is supported by high-quality computing components to ensure a highly responsive system at all times. There is nothing more frustrating than a system which is unresponsive or slow due to software or hardware issues. RYME WORLDWIDE systems provide the highest and fastest response times, which allows users to focus on the important aspects of the vehicle inspection rather than the inspection software’s issues.

    Maintainability – RYME WORLDWIDE´s software is continuously supported throughout the duration of any contract. Throughout software updates, familiarity and security are maintained so as to not impact the user environment or experience. If and/or when major changes are implemented that impact the operation of the software, those changes will be communicated to users and prompts will help guide through any impacted changes.

    • Attractiveness – RYME WORLDWIDE´s software provides an aesthetically pleasing environment to perform all of the necessary tasks of a vehicle inspection. Clear, concise and yet just visually stimulating enough to keep the user’s attention focused on the important task at hand, which is providing a high-quality level of service for official vehicle inspection

    SOFTWARE RELEASES

    1) ELIMINATING RISKS THROUGH SYSTEM DESIGN

    The RYME WORLDWIDE solution is a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) model developed on a server infrastructure. The RYME WORLDWIDE server infrastructure creates a cloud-computing platform that hosts a program-specific Intranet.
    This Intranet becomes the secure, central platform for all business and data transactions performed in the program.
    The solution design is important in Quality Project Management (QPM) and in risk control. The SOA model is modular and provides a common platform (the Intranet) for existing processes and products. The Intranet uses established communication language(s) and connectivity protocols.
    RYME WORLDWIDE will reengineer the processes and products necessary for the project to comply with the rules, system requirements and project objectives. This effectively removes the time and resources required for the development of new systems and new products, eliminating time and budget risks from the project.

    The SOA model has permitted RYME WORLDWIDE to design complete solutions based on comprehensive program requirements, and to scale and customize projects based on their individual needs. The SOA solutions include:
    • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS);
    • Data as a Service (DaaS);
    • Platform as a Service (PaaS); and
    • Software as a Service (SaaS).
    The SOA model enables RYME WORLDWIDE to more quickly transition into the Execution phase shortly after Contract signing.
    In doing so, RYME WORLDWIDE is able to eliminate many risks from the development schedule, including time and budget risks associated with implementation work, such as:
    • ITL Software customization programming;
    • Administrative software (Web-portal) customization and associated tools (i.e. reporting, surveillance, etc.);
    • Communication protocols;
    • Data systems finalization (i.e. active directory, data dictionary, storage logic, security programming, security analysis, etc.);
    • User Access Rules;
    • Testing parameters;
    • Hardware systems; and
    • Support infrastructure and systems.
    The RYME WORLDWIDE solution eliminates these risks. By using SOA, only minimal programming effort is required to customize the system to Bangladesh-specific rules and testing parameters.
    The SOA solutions are scaled to include only the SOA modules that are required for each program. SOA solutions can range from basic gather/transmit data systems to robust, real-time data networks with on-demand data management and video capabilities.
    All of these capabilities are already developed and only need to be activated, as necessary, to meet the design. RYME WORLDWIDE will customize the SOA solution based on the requirements and as agreed upon between RYME WORLDWIDE and Client.

    2) Development of ITL and VISION integration

    Using SOA, risks associated with developing entirely new systems are eliminated and only minimal programming effort is required to scale the system to the Program’s unique set of requirements.
    Under traditional development methods, changing requirements create difficulties in the development process; Agile System Development (Agile) accepts the reality of change versus the hunt for complete and rigid specifications, and allows RYME WORLDWIDE to quickly respond to issues and change requests during system development.
    The graphic above breaks down the Agile Development method of iterative development, showing the processes a work item undergoes during one iteration.
    RYME WORLDWIDE´s Agile approach is guided by three (3) objectives:

    • Working Software Released Early in the Development Cycle: This objective strives to present working software as early as possible in the development cycle. This permits stakeholders to evaluate the software in the context of a working system and to make their comments
    and change requests, allowing RYME WORLDWIDE to prioritize the change

    3) System Acceptance from RYME WORLDWIDE Total Quality Management

    RYME WORLDWIDE Total Quality Management (TQM) is a quality management system built on the foundation of a continuous improvement cycle. RYME WORLDWIDE TQM integrates quality and program management initiatives into an enterprise-level methodology that governs the development and maintenance of systems, deliverables and processes.
    TQM transcends individual projects and functions on a high-level within the organization itself, ensuring that each solution is exceeding its objectives and supporting overall long-term business objectives.
    These initiatives include:
    • System Development;
    • Agile Software Development;
    • Quality Control and Quality Assurance;
    • Quality Improvement;
    • Software Quality Assurance;
    • Statistical Process Control;
    • Program Assurance; and
    • Security Assurance.
    RYME WORLDWIDE´s development, optimization and system testing methods are cohabitating and inseparable components of RYME WORLDWIDE´s program goals and effective quality programs and are the driving force behind RYME WORLDWIDE´s reputation for providing the industry’s most reliable systems.
    The Agile development method employed in system build and testing activities is key to ensuring on-time and on-budget program implementations.

    6) System Documentation

    Documentation including the System Design Specification, which includes:
    • Overall System Detail, including system flow diagram and functional design narrative;
    • General System Functions and Business Rules
    • Application Structure Diagrams, including transaction flow diagram, screen and report layouts, program specification or diagrams, and object model.
    A Database Design Specifications which includes:
    • Logical data model (ERD);
    • Data dictionary
    • Details of the data in the data dictionary.
    A Web Service Specification that contains:
    • Detailed descriptions of the web service methods called to pass data between platforms and invoke business logic.
    • The web service methods request and response definitions and their elements.
    • WSDL (Web Services Description Language) file that defines all the required methods and their input and output parameters
    • The XSD (XML Schema Definitions) file that can be used for validating the message payload.
    All these components will be developed, continuously refined, and updated in an iterative manner along with the Program ITL and MIS software.

    • Iterative Development:: This objective breaks tasks into small workitems, reducing the time and effort needed for planning. Iterations are short time frames that typically last form one to four weeks. Each iteration involves planning, analysis, design, coding, unit testing and acceptance testing. Iterations minimize overall risk and allow the project to adapt to changes quickly. The Project Team members produce and update documentation, as needed.

    • Integrated and Constant Testing: This objective keeps the system in-flux between development and assessment. As an extension of RYME WORLDWIDE´s Quality program, each development item is tested individually by the developer and then as part of the working system by RYME WORLDWIDE´s Quality Assurance Director. Open communication between developers and the Quality Assurance Director enables immediate feedback of items and permits the developer to quickly resolve functional issues.

    4) Stakeholder Involvement

    The most important principle of RYME WORLDWIDE´s Agile software development methodology is stakeholder involvement. If desired by Client, RYME WORLDWIDE´s provides a web-based management tool for project and problem tracking of items during implementation and operational phases of the Program.
    The purpose of this communications is to work with the Program system stakeholders to identify what they think they want, produce something which reflects that understanding, get feedback from the project stakeholders, and update the solution to reflect RYME WORLDWIDE´s improved understanding. RYME WORLDWIDE´s goal is to work in a more evolutionary and collaborative
    manner to provide a solution that reflects the Program stakeholders’ actual needs, and to do that, RYME WORLDWIDE must work as closely and as regularly with stakeholders as is desired by those stakeholders.
    RYME WORLDWIDE only offers Client comprehensive involvement in the expedited development and customization process so as to ensure that Client are receiving the exact solution requested in its tender and desired by Program stakeholders..

    5) Using Agile to Customize the Solution

    It is RYME WORLDWIDE´s intention to meet with all stakeholders at the time of Contract execution, or as soon as possible, in order to facilitate the process of gathering additional requirements, but more importantly to involve stakeholders directly in the project from the very beginning. This will help ensure that requirements are clearly communicated and understood (at a high level) at the outset, and that requirements are prioritized appropriately based on the needs of the users.
    Throughout the entire development period, the software development team will hold weekly meetings with the project’s stakeholders so that requirements can be clarified on a weekly basis with the entire project team, and emerging requirements can be factored into the development schedule as appropriate.
    Software updates will be frequent during this period with the development team releasing new builds to add features to the prototype on a weekly basis, at minimum. After the Beta Pilot begins, the software development team will suspend releasing software while real world data is gathered and as each Beta prototype is carefully considered.
    Once the Client approves a Beta prototype to go into production, the process resumes since more and more users continually introduce new requirements and changes to existing functionality.

    RYME WORLDWIDE´S VISION™ SYSTEM

    THE FUTURE OF INSPECTION CENTERS

    RYME WORLDWIDE can design, implement and maintain a state-of-the-art hybrid database architecture to ensure that the Management Information System (MIS) securely and reliably delivers services and information on a continuous basis.

    The database architecture proposed by RYME WORLDWIDE has been successfully implemented in several jurisdictional vehicle testing programs and continues to provide those programs with uninterrupted communications and program services. RYME WORLDWIDE will host the primary and secondary data sites with traditional secure clustered data servers. The primary and secondary data sites will be backed up by a tertiary tertiary backup, which will continue to be hosted on RYME WORLDWIDE, but will use the latest technologies in Microsoft’s Azure cloud. The RYME WORLDWIDE solution for MIS goes beyond traditional database architectures and provides a robust system-wide management solution that delivers great value. The Vehicle Inspection Systems Information Network (referred to as “VISION” or “MIS”) is much more than just a database. or “MIS”) is much more dynamic than traditional vehicle inspection database management solutions. Traditional systems essentially create a central repository for data collection, storage and access, however limited, to data. VISION is a high-level, customer-initiated resource management solution that integrates each component into one (1) web-based software application that automates and controls data storage logic, data analysis processes, system-wide access rules, user capabilities, user activity and server system functions.

    Integrated Management System for Inspection Centers

    CUSTOMER ACCESS

    As the system is a web-based portal, users simply need access to the Internet and a working web browser in order to facilitate access to VISION. Once a system user is logged in, they will be granted access to portals, software programs and applications necessary to perform the duties of their assigned user role. This creates a comprehensive, service-oriented solution where system users have access to the data and information they need on-demand, 24/7/365. RYME WORLDWIDE will work with Client to establish any particular restrictions on specific platforms.
    Any access to the Intranet and all platforms and software applications hosted on it, or to any front-end software applications, will be controlled by access rules applied to each system user account. System user accounts are the key to performing program duties and will be managed widely on a role (classification)-based access control schema, and by user-based permissions and/or restrictions that can be set individually, if necessary. RYME WORLDWIDE will work Client to define user roles and access rights for each role.
    Authorized RYME WORLDWIDE and Client administrators will have the ability to grant/restrict itemized access rights to any individual user. The master User Management application is available to authorized users via the Administrative Web-Portal.
    Access will be provided through a login screen that will require one or all of the following login authentication criterion to be successfully inputted:
    • Case Sensitive Username; and
    • Password;
    The access means will depend on the device being used to access the Intranet and on the application being accessed.

    DATA CAPTURE & ANALYSIS

    RYME WORLDWIDE designed VISION with the objective of providing government-level secure identity and access to important data for authorized system users. To meet the security demands for maintaining data security, the end-user demands for flexible access, and the compliance demands of local, Federal and jurisdictional regulations; RYME WORLDWIDE has designed VISION using Microsoft Server 2017 Identity & Access services, which provide policy-driven access to data through Dynamic Access Control – an Active Directory service built for Internet-based platforms that provides seamless remote access via DirectAccess. In order to satisfy business and regulatory requirements, RYME WORLDWIDE will implement Dynamic Access Control to automate
    system access governance. The RYME WORLDWIDE security design for the Database includes a customized, Dynamic Access Control feature set that will permit authorized Client and RYME WORLDWIDE administrators to perform the following capabilities via the Master User Application:
    • Allow content owners to tag their information, rather than restricting this ability to administrators.
    • Apply a central access policy to information in tagged files.
    • Provide access denied remediation when users cannot access information.
    • Configure central audit policies to log access to information so that it can be analyzed for auditing and forensicpurposes.
    • Protect specific sensitive information by automatically applying RMS protection.

    ADMINISTRATIVE CAPABILITIES

    RYME WORLDWIDE´s choice of operating system and design strategy will maximize administrative capabilities, automated management and security control across the Database architecture; delivering a virtualized data environment built for speed, security and reliability.
    For the Database system, RYME WORLDWIDE is proposing Microsoft SQL Server 2017. MS SQL Server 2017 will ensure VISION overcomes any potential challenges typically associated with older database systems, including:
    • Multiple and varied data sources
    • Inconsistent access to business data
    • Varied understanding of business data
    • Multiple versions of business applications
    • Inefficient business processes
    • Geographically diverse teams
    • IT-related downtime and delay
    • Limited resources
    • Limited budget

    RYME WORLDWIDE´s SQL Server 2017 proposed database platform meets each of these challenges by offering these key resolutions:
    1.Consolidate data sources by making data more accessible and actionable with reporting, scorecard, and dash board solutions that are scalable and can be imported and manipulated from external resources using familiar Mi crosoft Offices interfaces.
    2.Keep everyone on the same page by making sophisticated data analysis easier for everyone through simple data visualization tools.
    3.Make data more accessible by delivering Government-ready security and compliance with built-in data encryption.
    4.Avoid high capital, training & management costs by easily incorporating data into existing applications and work flows based on familiar Microsoft and other tools.
    MS SQL Server 2017 deployed as the database server for the Program Database will meet and exceed security objectives, providing
    mission-critical confidence that the Bangladesh network is secure and the data elements are accurate and protected.
    MS SQL Server 2017 is the most dynamic version of SQL Server products, expanding on a strong security track record that consistently
    reports the lowest database vulnerabilities among the major Relational Database Manager vendors.
    The RYME WORLDWIDE Database solution for the Program will deliver a robust, dynamic and secure database solution based on the Microsoft SQL Server 2017 platform. This platform will meet (and exceed) the performance, scalability and mission-critical availability needs of the Program.
    RYME WORLDWIDE believes it can deliver the strongest, most dynamic, and most secure database solution available in the vehicle testing industry today, within the requirements of the Program. The Microsoft Server 2017 Platform is just the surface of the capability and dynamism of RYME WORLDWIDE´s solution.

    Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART)

    In developing Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology (SMART) for vehicle inspection programs, RYME WORLDWIDE created a turn-key solution that increases transparency while providing leading edge fraud detection and report services which improves RYME WORLDWIDE and government oversight and enforcement efforts in vehicle inspection programs.
    Rather than include detailed information regarding RYME WORLDWIDE´s SMART Application in its proposal, RYME WORLDWIDE would appreciate the opportunity to demonstrate its advanced capabilities and unparalleled abilities to manage vehicle inspection program data and activities. SMART automatically analyses data as it is being recorded during an inspection and from the vehicle being tested. Utilizing RYME WORLDWIDE´s proprietary algorithm and data from more than half of a billion inspection records from various vehicle testing programs across the globe, SMART will provide Client administrators with the tools needed to efficiently and effectively manage the system.

    With easy-to-navigate drop-down menus, users can navigate from one page to another in a very user-friendly manner. A list of all Inspection Centers can be viewed from one page, with links to information from each Inspection Centers making it very easy to find whatever information is desired through a variety of methods.

    Live and recorded video of official inspection taking place is used as an effective tool for government administrators to monitor the productivity and operations of official inspection activities.

    Storage and retrieval of photographs taken with each inspection can be retrieved with all other inspection related information.
    In addition, some jurisdictions require examiners to take photographs of failed inspection items, all of which will be included with test data in VISION.

    VISION provides authorized staff with the ability to send messages out to various users of testing equipment. Messages can include text, photos, attachments and any other information that needs to be distributed to either an individual examiner, Testing Centre or network-wide.

    REPORTS & REPORTING

    RYME WORLDWIDE will construct a VISION Data Warehouse that will serve as the repository for inspection data used to support the Client´s querying and reporting requirements. This data in an aggregate and summarized form will be specifically structured for querying, data analysis and reporting, and can be analyzed using SQL Analysis Services to build Analysis Service cubes, ad hoc queries, and SQL Reporting Services.
    VISION relies on SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to provide reports to Client and other approved stakeholders. Reporting Services is a server-based report generation software system that is a component of SQL Server. It can be used to prepare and deliver a variety of interactive and printed reports and is administered via SharePoint web interface. Users can interact with the Report Server web service directly, or use Report Manager, a web-based application that interfaces with the Report
    Server web service.
    With Report Manager, users can view, subscribe to, and manage reports as well as manage and maintain data sources and security settings. Reports can be delivered via e-mail or placed on the file system. Security is role-based and can be assigned to an individual item, such as a report or data source, a folder of items, or site wide. Security roles and rights are inherited and can be reviewed and modified by authorized personnel.

    VISION allows real-time access to information such as test history, vehicle repair history, registration status (for personnel and vehicle test report usage compliance rate) and effectiveness,
    as well as individual vehicle inspection history data. Information on individual vehicle repair history, registration and test effectiveness will be provided using a data warehouse.

    All reports will be able to be printed on a local printer or exported and stored in one or more of the following formats Comma Separated Values (CSV) format, text, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access), Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF), and Hypertext Markup Language/Extensible Markup Language (HTML/XML). Each report screen will contain a “Help” screen detailing the report parameters and any information requested by the Client.

    RYME WORLDWIDE will provide trigger reports requested by Client as well as the ability to construct new fraud and performance trigger reports. These reports can be delivered automatically via print, fax, disk, ftp, sms, email or result in the immediate notification by using event-based schedules (e.g. VIN Mismatch) to appropriate Client staff through desktop alarms. This functionality
    is provided by SQL Server and VISION. RYME WORLDWIDE will also provide enforcement tools to run these trigger reports and desktop alarms. Comprehensive Fraudulent Inspection Reports can be generated at any time using a VIN and RecordID in order to pinpoint a suspect test.
    Data comparisons to groups of similar vehicles are also made in order to determine the likelihood of a vehicle that has had an engine computer replaced but not properly updated by the service facility, as opposed to an actual fraudulent inspection.
    RYME WORLDWIDE will work with Client to develop quality control reports that enable thorough analysis of the patterns of testing data. VISION also provides Client with the ability to create Ad hoc query reports with end-of-previous-day data or all data for any period of time handling using the data warehouse. The query reports can provide information including, but not limited to, the number of inspections performed in a given time period (month, year-to-date, etc.) and the failure rate for a given time period.
    All ad-hoc reports shall be available for output to a local printer or available for export in one or more of the following formats:
    CSV, Text, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access), Adobe Acrobat (PDF), and HTML/XML. The VID shall allow simultaneous queries from multiple locations without disruption to the VID and with short report response times..

    INTEGRATED SOFTWARE ON INSPECTION LINES (ITL)

    RYME WORLDWIDE DATA EXCHANGE PROTOCOLS – WEB SERVICES

    Data exchange between VISION and Integrated Test Lane (ITL) Software is implemented using secure web services. These services are authored using either ASP.NET or Windows Communication Foundation and reside on VISION’s Application Server. Data will automatically be securely transmitted to Client in an interface that is acceptable to Client.
    The Web Services Description Language (WSDL) is used to describe the “public” interface to each web service, and the ITL Software uses the Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) to call one of the operations listed in the WSDL file.
    If a communication between the client and the VISION Application Server fails for any reason, the unsent data will continue to reside on the client and is marked as “unsent”. Subsequently, a successful communication will upload any unsent data that has not yet been received by VISION.

     

    USER FRIENDLINESS AND USABILITY

    RYME WORLDWIDE understands the importance of implementing a system that is both user-friendly and responsive while providing the advanced tools necessary to perform a successful vehicle inspection. In many vehicle testing programs, certain hardware, software, and procedures can overcomplicate the inspection process and perhaps even cause an incorrect determination of the vehicle’s inspection status.
    In order to overcome this, RYME WORLDWIDE has developed the most user-friendly inspection system available. From the hardware components and configuration to the software design and user-interface, RYME WORLDWIDE´s systems are developed nd built with ease-of-use, security and a shop environment in mind.
    In Bangladesh, RYME WORLDWIDE has proposed its proven hardware and software platforms as an ‘Off-the-Shelf’ solution that only needs to be customized to meet the specifications and requirements. Even though RYME WORLDWIDE Technical Teams will be onsite at inspection centers and with Client to assist with training and proper operations, RYME WORLDWIDE
    software and systems are designed to be setup and operated by a ‘Non-Technical’ user.
    The easy-to-use software will require very little to no examiner training and is based on self-explanatory principles and functional prompts that will guide the user through the various management and inspection processes.

    INSPECTION PROMPTS

    The Software guides the examiner through the testing process and instructs the examiner to perform mandatory tasks at certain
    points of the inspection. These prompts include instructing the examiner to perform an action, such as (at a minimum):
    • Scanning a barcode;
    • Manually entering data (where necessary); and
    • Confirming information and inspection results.
    • The inspection prompts feature the following data integrity checks (at a minimum):
    • Inspection prompts must be completed, and the information must be entered fully and properly in order for the examiner to proceed to the next step in the inspection process.
    • All data entered, either automatically or manually, will be checked against existing data logs and available databases for accuracy.
    • Software triggers will mine the data and the inspection results for irregularities based on the information provided.

    CLIENT ACCESS

    Any access to the Intranet and all platforms and software applications hosted on it, or to any front-end software applications, will be controlled by access rules applied to each system user account from interfacing with Client´s system. System user accounts are the key to performing program duties and will be managed widely on a role (classification)-based access control schema, and by user-based permissions and/or restrictions that can be set individually, if necessary.
    The master User Management application is stored within VISION and available to authorized users via VISION’s Administrative Web-Portal. Access will be provided through a login screen that will require one or all of the following login authentication criterion to be successfully inputted:
    • Case Sensitive Username; and
    • Password;
    The access means will depend on the device being used to access the Intranet and on the application being accessed and will work in conjunction with role manager tools.

     

    A FRIENDLY USER INTERFACE

    RYME WORLDWIDE believes a good and friendly user interface is one that allows users to carry out their intended actions or tasks effectively and efficiently, without distractions or questions as to how to proceed. Keeping that in mind, RYME WORLDWIDE has designed its user interface for its application as very simple and straight forward, allowing users to successfully perform inspections without hesitation, delay, or question without answer.
    RYME WORLDWIDE has implemented the following critical design aspects to ensure the most user-friendly design possible for a vehicle inspection application:

    Intuitive and Consistent Design The user interface in RYME WORLDWIDE´s application is consistent with the forms and applications found in an inspection environment. This creates a feeling of familiarity and simplicity for examiners and allows them to more easily begin using the system comfortably without issues. The software is consistent throughout the different forms and phases of the process, further allowing examiners to guide easily through a vehicle inspection without any delays or hesitation.

    • Clarity – Examiners can easily and clearly operate all functions of the inspection software without any ambiguity over the way the system operates. Software prompts are described quickly and concisely to users, providing them with the information that is needed in a clear and concise format, which can then be transferred to the motorist.

    • High Responsivity – The software is supported by high-quality computing components to ensure a highly responsive system at all times. There is nothing more frustrating than a system which is unresponsive or slow due to software or hardware issues. RYME WORLDWIDE systems provide the highest and fastest response times, which allows users to focus on the important aspects of the vehicle inspection rather than the inspection software’s issues.

    Maintainability – RYME WORLDWIDE´s software is continuously supported throughout the duration of any contract. Throughout software updates, familiarity and security are maintained so as to not impact the user environment or experience. If and/or when major changes are implemented that impact the operation of the software, those changes will be communicated to users and prompts will help guide through any impacted changes.

    • Attractiveness – RYME WORLDWIDE´s software provides an aesthetically pleasing environment to perform all of the necessary tasks of a vehicle inspection. Clear, concise and yet just visually stimulating enough to keep the user’s attention focused on the important task at hand, which is providing a high-quality level of service for official vehicle inspection

    SOFTWARE RELEASES

    1) ELIMINATING RISKS THROUGH SYSTEM DESIGN

    The RYME WORLDWIDE solution is a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) model developed on a server infrastructure. The RYME WORLDWIDE server infrastructure creates a cloud-computing platform that hosts a program-specific Intranet.
    This Intranet becomes the secure, central platform for all business and data transactions performed in the program.
    The solution design is important in Quality Project Management (QPM) and in risk control. The SOA model is modular and provides a common platform (the Intranet) for existing processes and products. The Intranet uses established communication language(s) and connectivity protocols.
    RYME WORLDWIDE will reengineer the processes and products necessary for the project to comply with the rules, system requirements and project objectives. This effectively removes the time and resources required for the development of new systems and new products, eliminating time and budget risks from the project.

    The SOA model has permitted RYME WORLDWIDE to design complete solutions based on comprehensive program requirements, and to scale and customize projects based on their individual needs. The SOA solutions include:
    • Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS);
    • Data as a Service (DaaS);
    • Platform as a Service (PaaS); and
    • Software as a Service (SaaS).
    The SOA model enables RYME WORLDWIDE to more quickly transition into the Execution phase shortly after Contract signing.
    In doing so, RYME WORLDWIDE is able to eliminate many risks from the development schedule, including time and budget risks associated with implementation work, such as:
    • ITL Software customization programming;
    • Administrative software (Web-portal) customization and associated tools (i.e. reporting, surveillance, etc.);
    • Communication protocols;
    • Data systems finalization (i.e. active directory, data dictionary, storage logic, security programming, security analysis, etc.);
    • User Access Rules;
    • Testing parameters;
    • Hardware systems; and
    • Support infrastructure and systems.
    The RYME WORLDWIDE solution eliminates these risks. By using SOA, only minimal programming effort is required to customize the system to Bangladesh-specific rules and testing parameters.
    The SOA solutions are scaled to include only the SOA modules that are required for each program. SOA solutions can range from basic gather/transmit data systems to robust, real-time data networks with on-demand data management and video capabilities.
    All of these capabilities are already developed and only need to be activated, as necessary, to meet the design. RYME WORLDWIDE will customize the SOA solution based on the requirements and as agreed upon between RYME WORLDWIDE and Client.

    2) Development of ITL and VISION integration

    Using SOA, risks associated with developing entirely new systems are eliminated and only minimal programming effort is required to scale the system to the Program’s unique set of requirements.
    Under traditional development methods, changing requirements create difficulties in the development process; Agile System Development (Agile) accepts the reality of change versus the hunt for complete and rigid specifications, and allows RYME WORLDWIDE to quickly respond to issues and change requests during system development.
    The graphic above breaks down the Agile Development method of iterative development, showing the processes a work item undergoes during one iteration.
    RYME WORLDWIDE´s Agile approach is guided by three (3) objectives:

    • Working Software Released Early in the Development Cycle: This objective strives to present working software as early as possible in the development cycle. This permits stakeholders to evaluate the software in the context of a working system and to make their comments
    and change requests, allowing RYME WORLDWIDE to prioritize the change

    3) System Acceptance from RYME WORLDWIDE Total Quality Management

    RYME WORLDWIDE Total Quality Management (TQM) is a quality management system built on the foundation of a continuous improvement cycle. RYME WORLDWIDE TQM integrates quality and program management initiatives into an enterprise-level methodology that governs the development and maintenance of systems, deliverables and processes.
    TQM transcends individual projects and functions on a high-level within the organization itself, ensuring that each solution is exceeding its objectives and supporting overall long-term business objectives.
    These initiatives include:
    • System Development;
    • Agile Software Development;
    • Quality Control and Quality Assurance;
    • Quality Improvement;
    • Software Quality Assurance;
    • Statistical Process Control;
    • Program Assurance; and
    • Security Assurance.
    RYME WORLDWIDE´s development, optimization and system testing methods are cohabitating and inseparable components of RYME WORLDWIDE´s program goals and effective quality programs and are the driving force behind RYME WORLDWIDE´s reputation for providing the industry’s most reliable systems.
    The Agile development method employed in system build and testing activities is key to ensuring on-time and on-budget program implementations.

    6) System Documentation

    Documentation including the System Design Specification, which includes:
    • Overall System Detail, including system flow diagram and functional design narrative;
    • General System Functions and Business Rules
    • Application Structure Diagrams, including transaction flow diagram, screen and report layouts, program specification or diagrams, and object model.
    A Database Design Specifications which includes:
    • Logical data model (ERD);
    • Data dictionary
    • Details of the data in the data dictionary.
    A Web Service Specification that contains:
    • Detailed descriptions of the web service methods called to pass data between platforms and invoke business logic.
    • The web service methods request and response definitions and their elements.
    • WSDL (Web Services Description Language) file that defines all the required methods and their input and output parameters
    • The XSD (XML Schema Definitions) file that can be used for validating the message payload.
    All these components will be developed, continuously refined, and updated in an iterative manner along with the Program ITL and MIS software.

    • Iterative Development:: This objective breaks tasks into small workitems, reducing the time and effort needed for planning. Iterations are short time frames that typically last form one to four weeks. Each iteration involves planning, analysis, design, coding, unit testing and acceptance testing. Iterations minimize overall risk and allow the project to adapt to changes quickly. The Project Team members produce and update documentation, as needed.

    • Integrated and Constant Testing: This objective keeps the system in-flux between development and assessment. As an extension of RYME WORLDWIDE´s Quality program, each development item is tested individually by the developer and then as part of the working system by RYME WORLDWIDE´s Quality Assurance Director. Open communication between developers and the Quality Assurance Director enables immediate feedback of items and permits the developer to quickly resolve functional issues.

    4) Stakeholder Involvement

    The most important principle of RYME WORLDWIDE´s Agile software development methodology is stakeholder involvement. If desired by Client, RYME WORLDWIDE´s provides a web-based management tool for project and problem tracking of items during implementation and operational phases of the Program.
    The purpose of this communications is to work with the Program system stakeholders to identify what they think they want, produce something which reflects that understanding, get feedback from the project stakeholders, and update the solution to reflect RYME WORLDWIDE´s improved understanding. RYME WORLDWIDE´s goal is to work in a more evolutionary and collaborative
    manner to provide a solution that reflects the Program stakeholders’ actual needs, and to do that, RYME WORLDWIDE must work as closely and as regularly with stakeholders as is desired by those stakeholders.
    RYME WORLDWIDE only offers Client comprehensive involvement in the expedited development and customization process so as to ensure that Client are receiving the exact solution requested in its tender and desired by Program stakeholders..

    5) Using Agile to Customize the Solution

    It is RYME WORLDWIDE´s intention to meet with all stakeholders at the time of Contract execution, or as soon as possible, in order to facilitate the process of gathering additional requirements, but more importantly to involve stakeholders directly in the project from the very beginning. This will help ensure that requirements are clearly communicated and understood (at a high level) at the outset, and that requirements are prioritized appropriately based on the needs of the users.
    Throughout the entire development period, the software development team will hold weekly meetings with the project’s stakeholders so that requirements can be clarified on a weekly basis with the entire project team, and emerging requirements can be factored into the development schedule as appropriate.
    Software updates will be frequent during this period with the development team releasing new builds to add features to the prototype on a weekly basis, at minimum. After the Beta Pilot begins, the software development team will suspend releasing software while real world data is gathered and as each Beta prototype is carefully considered.
    Once the Client approves a Beta prototype to go into production, the process resumes since more and more users continually introduce new requirements and changes to existing functionality.
