Dissecting a Case Study for requirements 

Hi,

    I have an upcoming interview where a case study would be thrown at me so that I can procure the requirements based on that example? Can any of you help me out how a BA or is supposed to go about asking questions digging for information from the client?This, 'course involves two scenarios where the BA has either domain knowledge(or product knowledge based on experience) or not.Let's just go with NOT.

  I am confused about the approach method to any case study, let's say a loan management sstem, or a traffic management applciation, or an online shopping portal.On the top of my head, I would start with questions related to the users/stakeholders involved etc?But I reach a mental block beyond the obvious questions.Is there a more sustainable approach like a tree structure or something?

Re: Dissecting a Case Study for requirements 

Hi,

    In my interview the objective was laid out to me.That the client needs to have a feature of pick up service of products from the store whose order have been placed online(instead of shipping it). How would you guys go about asking questions and gathering requirements?

I started with the roles/people involved in this feature.Then asked a few technical questions but basically I couldn't gather much functional requirements from the person who was interviewing me(posing as a client).I sorta frozeas there didn't seem much to be asked as far as functional requirements were concerned.

  what questions would you guys have shot and what approach would you guys have had taken?

Thanks

S
