Your objective is to conduct some independent research on the topic and the domain under study.
There are two tasks:
1. Modelling task. Based on your student number, you must choose a modelling technique/approach
to be used in your submission. Next, identify a suitable aspect of the case study and explore it in
depth. Finally, create a model that illustrates and explains the (wisely) selected aspect of the case.
2. Propose an approach to requirements elicitation. To do this, you need to suggest a technology
solution, identify end users and propose an approach to gathering users’ requirements.
In the process, use information extracted from the case study description and make assumptions if
you need additional details. Document your assumptions.
In your assignment include:
1. Your model
2. A proposed approach to requirements elicitation
Depending on the model chosen, your solution will cover either the entire domain or one aspect of it.
Therefore, it is up to you to decide the scope of your solution, to demonstrate specific details or be
very holistic. You can refer back to the weekly workshop to decide which approach suits your model.
Use the relevant workshop form for the modelling task. Use the
relevant workshop form for the modelling task.
Also depending on the model chosen, you then decide on the order of the assignment tasks. You
may need to undertake Modelling task first then Propose an approach to requirements elicitation or
the other way around. For example, Lary’s student number is 234123716, he can use either “SWOT
analysis” (X=1) or “Domain class diagram” (Y=6) for the modelling task. If Lary selects “SWOT
analysis” then he should undertake SWOT analysis, formulate strategies and propose a system as an
initiative to implement the recommended strategy, identity the users for the system, then propose an
approach to gathering requirements from the users. If
Lary however selects “Domain class diagram” then he should propose an approach to gathering
requirements from the users before undertaking the modelling task.
In total, your assignment should not be more than 2500 words. We also expect no more than 5
