This particular project aimed at the modernisation of the corporation’s production by designing a connected network between the digital productions along with the media assets to assist staff members when sharing, developing and using videos and/or audio materials (BBC, 2013).

The entire plan concentrated on the formulation of a new in-house tool to support the system,
