Modified By fofo  on 6/6/2009 5:47:17 PM)

hello 2 all

can u help me with this project

any information may give me a great help :)

Question 2:

       Look at the following requirements and extract the use-cases, classes, objects,  and relationships among classes. Show generalizations, specializations and encapsulation with examples. You can add any new ideas to improve the organizational system or  define any types of functions that are needed to improve  the organizational system such as delete, add ….. an employee.

       The organization  is organized into departments. Each department has a unique name, a unique number and one employee who manages the department. The organization need to keep the start date when the manger began managing the department. A department may have several location.  A department controls a number of projects, each of which has a unique name, a unique number and a single location

        The organization needs to store each employee's a name, social security number, address, salary, gender, and birth date. An employee is register only in one department but may work on several projects, which are not necessarily controlled by the same department. We keep track of the number of hours per week that an employee  works in each project.

        The organization is employed  two types of employees hourly employee and salaried employee.

       The organization wants to keep  track of the dependents ( the relatives  such as husband, wife, children) of each employee for insurance purposes which includes dependent’s first name, gender, birth date and relationship to the employee.

Re: need help with S.A 

Hi Fofo,

Let's see if we can help you out... I would suggest that you begin to answer some of the questions (try) and we can provide you with feedback.

Based on the information you provided, go ahead and begin by providing a list of "things" the new system/project will be dealing with (hint: they are the nouns of the business).  These things will become the basis for your business entities (classes) as well as your actors (roles performing certain functions).

Do your best!

Re: need help with S.A 

Perhaps some of our junior/novice BAs could attempt to answer fofo's question. Fofo may I suggest that you submit your first attempt as well.

warm regards,


Ps. A domain model (class and their relationships) or ERD model is a good start. At first glance there are 3 subject areas (packages): the organization, the employee/dependents and projects. The use cases would definitely define the maintenance of organization and employee/dependents, where the obvious actor is the HR Clerk. The project usecases actor could be the project manager.
