For this coursework assignment, you are requiredto choose a real-life information system. This information system can be either manual or
computer-based, but it **must** be a real system,**not** an imaginary one. Therefore, you **must** cite and reference **all** your sources of information in
the appropriate manner. The real system may be
one with which you have experience, or one that you have read about in newspapers, magazines, You are required to investigate and analyse the
information system you have chosen. Based on your findings, you must then propose a design that offers improvements in efficiency and
effectiveness over the current system. You are required to use appropriate UML tools and techniques to conduct and present your design, using the AllFusion Component Modeler CASE tool from Computer Associates where appropriate. You must undertake and document all stages of design from initial use cases through to final implementable UML-based design models. You should be careful to justify and explain all design You are required to document the above in a report. Your report should not exceed **6,500**
**words**. This excludes the cover page, table of
contents, and references but includes any
appendices. Text in tables is considered ‘as is’
(that is, it counts the same as regular text) and
each diagram is considered equivalent to 400
words. In addition, your report must not exceed
**18 pages** in total, which is inclusive of everything,
i.e. inclusive of all text, diagrams and tables, as
well as the cover page, table of contents,
references, and any appendices.
The content of your report should cover the
• Overview of the current information
• A problem statement.
• A list of requirements.
• Proposed design that includes all
appropriate UML-based models through
the various stages, from use cases
through to an implementable model of the
new system. All models should be
developed with AllFusion Component
Modeler and be displayed in the report
and fully explained. All design decisions
should be fully justified.
• Final evaluation of your design against the
Generally speaking, the better your analysis,
design and documentation of the new system, the
higher your final mark is likely to be. With this in
mind, you should consult the attached marking
scheme and make sure you understand it.
There is one deliverable to be submitted, which is
the report. The report should be stapled **not**
bound (you do not get any extra marks for
binding!). Please ensure that you state your full
name clearly on the front of the report, together
with your registration number, the course code
(CS2077A) and the academic year (2003/04). This
is in addition to the coursework submission form.
The submission deadline is **Monday 19th**
**Plagiarism and joint work**
This is an **individual** assignment. Be sure to read
the student handbook regarding plagiarism and
joint work, and be clear on what is and isn’t
**Managing your time**
You are strongly advised to begin this coursework
assignment as soon as possible, not only to ensure
that you meet the above deadline, but also so that
you complete it to the best of your abilities.
Furthermore, it will take time for you to find a
real-life information system on which you are
happy to focus your coursework. Note that it will
be impossible to complete the coursework
adequately by the deadline if you leave it all until
the last minute. The sooner you start, the more
manageable and the less of a burden the
coursework will be.
