Design information System by Mind Map: Design information System

1. Analysing Requirements Entities

1.1. Modelling Requirements:Things

1.1.1. Brainstorming technique Identify a user and a set of use cases. Brainstorm with the user to identify things about which information should be captured by the system. Use the types of things (categories) to systematically ask questions about potential things Continue to work with all types of users and stakeholders to expand the brainstorming list Merge the results, eliminate any duplicates, and compile an initial list.

1.1.2. Noun technique Identify all nouns using the use cases, actors, and other information including inputs and outputs. Use other information from existing systems including procedures, reports, forms, items or categories of information. Refine the list of nouns. Create a master list of all nouns identified and then note whether each one should be included, excluded, or researched further. Review the list with users, stakeholders, and team members and then refine the list of things in the problem domain.

1.2. Characteristics of things

1.2.1. Attributes Specific information about a thing Identifier or key attributes

1.2.2. Relationship Optional relationship Mandatory relationship Generalisation/specialisation relationship Whole/part relationships

1.2.3. Domain Model Class Diagrams Class Class diagram Domain model class diagram camelback notation or camelCase notation

2. Development Approaches

2.1. Traditional Approach

2.1.1. Data Flow Diagram Context Diagram Expanding into sub-processes Next level of DFDs

4.5.3. HCI(human computer interaction) Affordance Consistency Discoverability Closure Readability and Navigatiion Usability and Efficiency

4.6. Design system Control

4.6.1. ensure that the system and data are secured and protected

4.6.2. need controls for user interface system interface application architecture database network design

4.6.3. More information in control,Audit&Security unit

5. Alternatives for Implementation

5.1. Prioritise requirements

5.1.1. define the scope of the project precisely

5.2. Prioritising Requirements

5.2.1. Predictive approach

5.2.2. Adaptive approach

5.2.3. Determining the level of automation Low Medium High

5.3. Alternatives

5.3.1. in-house Satisfy unique business requirements Minimise changes in business procedures and policies Meet constraints of the existing system Meet constraints of the existing technology Develop internal resources and capabilities

5.3.2. out-source Lower costs or to control the costs Deal with rapid changes in software / hardware technology Less time to implement Proven reliability and performance benchmarks Less technical development staff Future upgrades provided by vendor Obtain input from other companies

5.4. Selecting an alternative
