Introduction

 

Before you begin this assignment, be sure you have read the Udo, Marian, & Uduak

Corporation (UMUC) Case Study. Also, you should review your completed Stage 1

assignment and the Stages 3 – 5 individual assignments to get an understanding of the

future projects that build on this stage.

 

Purpose of this Assignment

 

This assignment gives you the opportunity to apply the course concepts to create a

Context Diagram and a Diagram 0 for the new billing and payment system. This

assignment specifically addresses the following course outcomes to enable you to:

 

• Effectively communicate with stakeholders to determine, manage, and document

business requirements throughout the SDLC

 

• Perform modeling to assist with analysis and decision making

 

• Translate business requirements into systems by applying appropriate SDLC

methodologies and incorporating industry best practices

 

The Deliverable

 

Using the Udo, Marian, & Uduak Corporation (UMUC) Case Study, build on the

Requirements Document you developed in “Stage 1 – Requirements Document” to

model the data and processes by creating a Context Diagram and Diagram 0 for the

new billing and payment system.

 

Create a document that includes the following:

 

• The paper should consist of the two diagrams (Context Diagram and Diagram 0).

 

• Cover and a Works Cited page are also required. These are not included in the

page count.

 

• The Cover page must include an appropriate title and your name.

 

• Use the Works Cited page to correctly cite and reference any sources you use

with APA format.

• Use the Grading Rubric to be sure you have covered everything.

• Submit your paper via your Assignment Folder as a Microsoft Word or Power

Point document with your last name included in the filename.

• If you use Visio or some other drawing tool, be sure it can be opened without a

password or special software other than Microsoft Office.

 

• Context Diagram for the new billing and payment system

 

o This diagram should look similar to the one shown in: Textbook, Systems

Analysis and Design, Page 188

 

• Diagram 0 for the new billing and system

 

o This diagram should look similar to the one shown in: Textbook, Systems

Analysis and Design, Page 189 – 190

 

• Both diagrams will be evaluated on the following

o Completeness – The context diagram and diagram 0 fully depict the

 

system and the data flows.

 

o Process/Stores– Processes properly labeled, numbered, named using

verbs, following common symbol usage. Store (where applicable) –

Properly labeled, numbered, following common symbol usage

 

o Flow – Proper arrow usage depicting the flow of information between

process, stores and external entities

 

o External Entities/Terminators – External entities are properly labeled, and

named using nouns, following common symbol usage
