ITC508 Object Modelling - Validation phase - Assessment item 2

Task

In the final phase of the project, you need to validate your system designs. You have the following two choices to develop detailed object-oriented design models. You also need to submit a proper documentation describing the different aspects of developed component.

Choice 1: Students who have expertise in object-oriented programming are required to validate their system design through developing a prototype for at least one subsystem of chosen case study. You have an option to use any object-oriented programming language such as  Java, C#, C++ etc. to develop this subsystem.

OR

Choice 2: Students who have no expertise in object-oriented programming are required to validate their system design using interaction diagrams (i.e., communication diagrams or sequence diagrams) for at least one subsystem of chosen case study. To do this, identify four most important use cases for the system and develop communication diagrams or sequence diagrams for these use cases.

Rationale

This assessment task will assess the following learning outcome/s:

  • be able to create analysis and design diagrams with UML notation.
  • be able to compare the syntax, semantics and pragmatics of UML to determine the best diagrams for the problem domain.
  • to be able to verify and validate a system design.

Furthermore , the purpose of this assessment task is to develop student's skills and knowledge in:

  • validating an OO design through the construction of a prototype
  • converting design diagrams into program code
  • preparing project documentation
