With the existing manual-based of outcome based education (OBE) systems, data complexity appears as the main problem to be solved. In this paper, a critical discussion of the manual-based system and a way forward with the online version of the OBE systems in the Faculty of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (FKEE), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM) have been discussed. Two assessment tools of programme learning outcomes (PLOs) as well as course learning outcomes (CLOs) have been used to measure and analyse manually both achievements of the PLOs and CLOs. However, results obtained have shown that these processes require a better system, to deal with various parameters such as different cohort of students and various courses. Obviously, the online-based version and further improvement of the manual-based system that have been proposed are expected to resolve these issues, hence it will be fruitful for the FKEEs’ OBE administrator.
