Project Description

Among the concerns of today's society, environment protection is one of the most notable topics. Following the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Agreement, the countries of the world have put effort into environmental research to make up for deficiencies in the past. After many discussions, we chose to investigate O'right, a brand which integrates environmentalist ideals and represents our country, Taiwan. This project will detail the history, efforts, and achievements of O'right, and investigate the environmental awareness of the public through a survey. We hope to bring the world’s attention to this representative enterprise, and in the meantime, spread the ideals of environment protection through this event.

Business Description

For decades, customers have paid attention to whether a food product is 'organic' or 'environment-friendly' when they make purchases. As time goes on, the haircare industry has integrated into the concept of environmental protection. Today's haircare companies focus on more than cleansing effect, as customers push for products that are healthy, natural, and sustainable. O'right, the brand we chose to research for our project, meets all three expectations. A leading green enterprise of Taiwan, O'right implements its environmentalist ideals in every aspect of the company, through its product innovations, its supply chain, its headquarters design, and even events outside of the company. Though its popularity cannot compete with that of mainstream brands in the haircare industry as yet, we believe O'right's corporate philosophy and respect for nature will pave the way to international success.

Problem

Solution

In order to better collect and analyze survey results, we put the survey system on a private server, which resulted in jammed traffic and database overload.

A second backup server was set up; an HA mechanism was used to transfer throughput; server status was monitored closely in order to avoid damaging the database.

Team members had other academic tasks, and the work was not evenly scheduled, resulting in us rushing to finish the rest of the work in the final days.

Before the due date, we set everything aside and focused on the CyberFair in order to finish the work on schedule.

A majority of the content was written in Chinese before it was translated into English. Because Chinese sentences follow a more convoluted pattern, and some words did not exist in the English language, so most sentences could not be translated directly.

We split the sentences up as best as we could and spent time on Google and Thesaurus.com to piece together the perfect translation.

We had a hard time envisioning the layout design of the website.

We looked at other websites for reference, and we were inspired by the official website designs used by major enterprises: clean, simple, and modern, a style that fit our research enterprise as a green, innovative corporation of tomorrow.

At first, the work was not evenly distributed between the team members, so some had more work than others.

We divided our team into groups for different jobs: website making, data collection, and survey analysis. Then we chose a leader, who would schedule the tasks for each group member and report on the progress of the project.

The initial information we collected was too general and unable to be thoroughly investigated.

We compared the information we collected and asked the teacher for help. In addition, the information O'right gave us during the visit gave us an insight into the company's beliefs and workings.

Two sets of 1000M/600M SFP static Enterprise Network; the network environment is connected through 10GbE enterprise switches, provided with WIFI AC wireless network. Social media such as Facebook, LINE, and Google are used for data collection, and open source software such as LimeSurvey are used to conduct the survey. IIS Web Service, Apache2, Mysql, and PHP7 are used as network and website testing environments.

Problems and Obstacles We Faced

Our Internet Environment

To our team, it is absolutely an honor to have the opportunity to represent our school and participate in an international event such as the CyberFair, and perhaps to let Taiwan's green enterprise be known to the world. Winning or not, the project we have worked hard to complete will be an accomplishment, not only for the team but also for our school and community.

Project Sound Bite

We express our thanks to the vice president of O'right, Mr. Hsieh, whose comprehensive presentation gave us an insight into the company's ideals, products, and efforts, and whose tour of the headquarters provided us a clearer picture of the enterprise and allowed us to see O'right's countless innovative creations for ourselves. We are also grateful for the people who took the time to fill in our survey with honest and thoughtful responses, as their answers gave us invaluable data for investigation and analysis. Lastly, we owe our gratitude to our instructors, Bear Shiao and Wins Peng, who guided us during planning and discussions, offered suggestions when we had no clue what we were doing, and encouraged us to communicate and work as a team. Without these people, we couldn't have accomplished what we have in our project today.
