IT 315 Final Project Part I Milestone One Guidelines and Rubric

 

Overview: Throughout this course, you will develop the skills required of a software architect—a role that is in high demand in the software industry. The final project resembles a typical development project of an actual software designer or software architect. You will have the opportunity to apply, practice, and receive feedback on how software systems are designed using object-orientation and Unified Modeling Language (UML) modeling.

 

For this assessment, you will assume the role of a consultant tasked with designing a student information system (SIS) for a small college that offers both online and face-to-face classes. The SIS should keep track of students’ information and their course registrations. You will be provided with information about the system, its business context, and its requirements. With this information, you will need to design the software system by applying object-oriented techniques and methods and UML modeling.

 

Specifically, this final project is divided into three different parts, which will each be submitted separately. Each part focuses on a different stage in the development process, and will be completed in sequence throughout the course. Additionally, at each stage you will validate and verify your design, explain how you arrived at it, and reflect upon your process and lessons learned. Through the milestones, you will have an opportunity to gather feedback first before you submit final versions. The three final project submissions are Part I: Functional Model, submitted in Module Four; Part II: SIS Structural Model, submitted in Module Six, and Part III: Behavioral Model, submitted in Module Eight.

 

Prompt: The Student Information System Requirements Definition document is the requirements definition document of a new SIS for a small college. The college offers both online and face-to-face, brick-and-mortar classes to its undergraduate student population.

 

The goal of the SIS is to maintain and track the college’s information about its students, courses, and classes. The SIS is also used to automate the class registrations process. The SIS system should be accessible as a website and as a mobile app to both students and enrollment staff.

 

You are hired as a consultant software architect to design the SIS functional model consisting of the following:

 

  • A use case diagram
  • A use case description for each use case in your model

 

Analyze the SIS requirements and formalize them as use cases. You should have between four to six use cases. Generate a use case diagram showing the actors associated with each use case, and structure your use cases using <<include>>, <<extend>>, and generalization relationships. The use case diagram must be generated by a UML drawing tool such as draw.io or Visio.

 

Using the Final Project Part I Solution Submission Template document, provide a description for each use case in your use case diagram. Use this same document to complete and submit your deliverables. Your functional model should be complete and professional.

 

 

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

 

  • Creation: Analyze the SIS requirements and formalize them as use cases in a use case diagram, showing the actors associated with each use case. You should have between four to six use cases. Structure your use cases using <<include>>, <<extend>>, and generalization relationships. Provide a description for each use case that is correct, complete, and valid for the SIS system.
  • Testing: Verify and validate your functional model against the requirements of the SIS system.
  • Approach Explanation: Explain your approach to creating your functional model and the design decisions you made to create it.
  • Self-Reflection: Discuss your experience creating your functional model and the lessons you learned from it. Specifically, draw connections between your experience and the object-oriented techniques and methods discussed in this course.

 

Guidelines for Submission: Use the Final Project Part I Solution Submission Template document and follow the formatting directions therein when submitting your work. Your functional model should be complete and professional.

 

Instructor Feedback: This activity uses an integrated rubric in Blackboard. Students can view instructor feedback in the Grade Center. For more information, review these instructions.

Prompt: You, as a software architect, did a good job on the functional model of the SIS. The small college is happy with your functional model and has approved it. The college wants you to proceed to the next step of the SIS structural model.

 

Based on your SIS functional model, create an SIS structural model consisting of:

 

  • A class responsibility collaboration (CRC) card for each class in your model
  • A class diagram

 

From the SIS functional model, identify the classes of your structural model. You should have between six to nine classes. Using the provided Part II Solution Submission Template document, document each class showing its responsibilities, collaborations, attributes, and relationships.

 

Formalize the information from the CRC cards into a class diagram. Your class diagram should use the class relationships of association, generalization, aggregation, and composition to structure the classes and should indicate the multiplicities of these relationships. The class diagram must be generated by a UML drawing tool. After creating your model, make sure to complete the other deliverables listed below.

Prompt: Now that you have completed both your SIS functional model and structural model, you are ready to complete your consulting job by creating the SIS behavioral model.

 

Based on your SIS functional model and structural model, create an SIS behavioral model consisting of the following:

 

  • A sequence diagram for the Register a Student for Classes use case
  • A communication diagram for the Register a Student for Classes use case

 

From the SIS functional model, Register a Student for Classes use case, and the structural model, identify the objects and the actors that participate in either the sequence diagram or the communication diagram. Identify the messages that are sent and received among these objects and actors and determine the order of message passing. Formalize your findings as a sequence diagram and a corresponding communication diagram. For the sequence diagram, show the execution occurrence when a message is sent or received. Both the sequence diagram and the communication diagrams must be generated by a UML drawing tool.
