ASFINAG Project

The implementation and maintenance of databases are complex tasks that require expert knowledge. During the implementation of ASFINAG project, design and application necessitated the sourcing of a team of experts who would work together towards the realization of the intended goals. The ASFINAG project differed from an embedded system. Had it been an embedded system, the expertise, as well as the ongoing maintenance requirements, would have been avoided. The project missed the opportunities that were availed by an embedded system; that is why it took 100 professionals a total of 18 months to c ...

It thus becomes essential for a guardian, parents or teachers handling children of this age to choose comprehensive strategies that can effectively work with a child, according to Piaget.
