Abstract—Internship program intends to empower students
with real-world knowledge, skills, and desirable attitudes by
allowing them to gain hands-on experience. This study focuses
on implementing lean management principles in developing a
web-based information system that manages the data and
processes undertaken by the students in their internship
program. The system was developed using the Rapid
Application Development (RAD) model which was divided into
four main modules. These modules are for monitoring and
supervision of the internship program. The system will help the
coordinators to manage documents, the supervisor to give
grades, the students to create a journal that will monitor
progress, and the administrator to manage the system. To
determine if the developed system is efficient and functional,
trials were conducted utilizing test scenarios, test cases, and
comparison table. The developed system was evaluated using a
survey questionnaire based on ISO 25010 software quality
model as to Product Quality. It obtained an overall mean of 4.32
with a standard deviation value of 0.666. This validates that the
objectives of the study were met and achieved. Moreover, the
system was able to reduce the cost and time spent from the
previous process, which proves that it successfully integrated
lean management principle in its design.
