Q1 [Marks 10]


“During the construction of a motorway link road, for shifting an Interchange 5 Km ahead of its current location after it has already been built, it is going to be very costly. It could be easily fixed if realized earlier.”


1)     Create an analogy of the software development phases with above scenario.


2)     Also mention the most suitable and worst phase (justify your answer with solid reasons in each case) for a “needed change” in case of software development regarding cost and efforts.


Q2 [10 Marks]


Draw the use case diagram of the following scenario


As System Analyst at Pakistan Railways, you need to model a Ticket Selling System for Terminal computers (TSSTC). Reading the Functional Specification of the system, you draw the following conclusions:


  1. The main purpose of TSSTC is to use it for searching the “Train Timings” and purchasing the train tickets.


  1. TSSTC consists of touch screen as an interface between passenger and system, credit-card reader and a printer to print tickets.


  1. Each passenger uses available interface to search the available routs and train times from which he selects one train.


  1. After he selects the train, the terminal screen displays the available seats in that train.


  1. The passenger selects the seat and the system prompts the total fare.


  1. The payment is then made by credit card (using credit-card reader).


  1. The system confirms the payment. If the payment is not confirmed, system displays an error message and transaction is terminated.


  1. If the payment is confirmed, the ticket is issued and printed by the printer, from where the passenger collects his ticket.

plz do sumffing abut diz anssgnment fnkzzz........<!!>

Please Discuss here about this assignment.Thanks

i didnt get the question; forget abt the answer
twilight i agreeeeeeed wid u same here hahahhah.............
i dun find it funny...rather worrying...i hav got a lil of question 2 on page 33 of handouts but what is analogy thing in 1st question:s
analogy means we have to create similarites b/w SW develpomnet phase and above giving scenario
Please solution upload here
what do you mean by that ....?? which type of similarities...?means to say that scenario is about the moterway raod and how can we compare it with the software development... and which type of phrase we have to provide??
my question is same like ahsan: which phase of s/e development do we hav to compare it with?

Please read the question carefully, diagram is not asked. Please note that "analogy" means likeness or similarity. What you have to do is that, read the example carefully, then try to understand the situation given in the example. After this, think of software development phases and try to analyze that how the situation like this can be faced (occur) in any of the software development phases.

Making it more easy, It means that how can you face the similar type of situation in software development phase (or phases) e.g. at some stage you realized that a wrong decision (taken at early phases) has effected the software badly and if that decision had been taken correctly, you could have avoided extra cost and time. you have to give an example of it.



this is hopefuly helpful 4 u guyz just help me i need soltuions of first asignment thxxx
