Task
In this assessment item, you are required to provide the detailed architecture and design of the system presented in Assessment Item 1 in report form. The total number of words should be between 1800—2000. Please note the words included in the diagrams/figures will not be counted. Amongst the information sought are answers to the following questions:
Questions you need to address are:
1. Identify and briefly describe the main functional and non-functional requirements for the major systems areas of the case study.
• List the functional requirements of each sub system. This could be an improved version from the first assignment.
• List the non-functional requirements on different sub categories. Please refer to week-2 lesson.
2. Draw a use case model for the information system. Write brief Use Case description for each Use Case in the diagram. Write one fully developed Use Case description for one of the important Use Cases identified. Select an important Use Case that is key part of the system, not a basic simple Use Case.
• Draw use case diagrams for all systems – draw a separate use case diagram for each sub system
3. Draw a UML domain model class diagram for all systems in your chosen case study. Be as specific and accurate as possible, given the information provided. If needed information is not given, make realistic assumptions.
• Draw a UML domain model class diagram for all systems – Draw a single domain model class diagram for the whole system.
4. For each of the five design activity of SDLC, list and briefly describe some specific tasks required for each design activities (i.e., describing the environment, designing application components, user interfaces, the database, and software methods.
• Briefly describe the below (refer to lecture notes on Systems Design):
? describing the environment - ? designing application components -
? user interfaces - ? the database - and
? software methods -
Rationale
This assessment tasks covers the fundamental concepts of object modeling, use cases, dynamic models and has been designed to ensure that you are engaging with the subject content on a regular basis. The purpose of the assessment task is to strengthen the student's skill in developing a detailed OO design using UML notation, based on a set of user requirements. More specifically it assess your ability to:
• Apply the concepts of object orientation methodology (Learning outcome 1).
• Analyse system requirements to determine the use cases and domain model of the problem domain (Learning outcome 3).
• Create class diagrams and dynamic models with UML notations (Learning outcome
4).
• Perform modeling of various aspects of systems to construct quality diagrams from a case study (Learning outcome 6).
