BSA 385 Week 1 Individual Assignment SDLC Table

 

Instructions: Resources:   

  • Section 3.4, "Principles of Software Engineering," in Ch. 3, "Engineering of Software," of Essentials of Software Engineering
  • The module "The Software Lifecycle" of the Pluralsight course "Software Process Management" by Gregory Knight
  • "SDLC Table" document (BSA385r6_SDLC_Table_Week_1.docx) The company you work for is a programming services contractor that consults with businesses in the United States requiring assistance in creating software in compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Your company advertises a proven track record in providing secure code that meets regulatory and compliance recommendations that include the protection of all Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Your client is a small hospital and surgery center that requires a program that will calculate the bill for a patient's hospital stay, including charges for the surgery, daily hospital fees, and pharmacy. The hospital only performs five types of surgeries, limits the patient stay to three days, and has a limited pharmacy offering of ten prescription drugs. The hospital employees who will use the program should be able to enter the patient information, including name, hospital ID number, diagnosis, surgery type, length of stay, and prescriptions. The program will then produce a final billing statement. The client would like the program completed in six months.

 

Using the file provided and referencing the scenario above, complete the 2- to 3-page System Development Life Cycle Table. The table is designed to help you see how to apply the SDLC to an actual program. Complete the second and third column for each row; optionally feel free to add additional artifacts to the fourth column. Be sure your responses directly address this case study.

BSA 385 Week 2 Learning Team Assignment Software Engineering Process Plan

 

Instructions: Resource:   

  • "User Stories" document The Learning Team Assignments will use the same scenario that is used in the Individual Assignment in Week One. This week the team will evaluate the User Stories that have been gathered from the client. The Director of Software Engineering and the Product Manager for your company visited the client and collected User Stories as depicted in the User Stories document provided. The Director wants you to look at the User Stories and identify the top five critical requirements that the team will have to be concerned with for the Functional Requirements Document (FRD) based on the stories.

In addition, you have been assigned an intern who will shadow you during the development of this program. The intern has never heard of a User Story and needs you to explain how you will use them.

Part 1: Based on the stories, create a 1-page list using Microsoft® Word of the top five critical requirements that the team will need to be concerned with for the Functional Requirements Document. Include a justification of why you think each requirement is critical.

Part 2: Create a 1-page document using Microsoft® Word that explains the following to the intern:   

  • How requirements for a software project are gathered
  • What user stories are, why they are needed, and how they are used The team will submit one completed assignment for the team. This assignment will help you complete the Week Three Individual Assignment.



BSA 385 Week 2 Individual Assignment Requirements Document

 

Instructions: Resource:   

  • "User Stories" document Continue your work using the scenario presented in Week One. The Director of Software Engineering and the Product Manager for the company visited the client and collected the User Stories as depicted in the User Stories document provided. In addition, the Chief Financial Officer of the Hospital gave the Director a complete breakdown of the charges for surgeries, hospital stays, and prescription drugs.

 

Part 1: The Director has asked you to read through the stories and help with the Functional Requirements Document (FRD) which is a formal statement of the program's functional requirements. The FRD serves the same purpose as a contract. Your company agrees to provide the capabilities specified. The client agrees to find the product satisfactory if it provides the capabilities specified in the FRD. The Director has asked you to identify any specific user interface, compliance, security, data, and data access requirements identified in the stories. The Director also wants to know which of the requirements you identify are functional or non-functional. The Director has determined that you will use an Agile approach to the development of the program.

Create a 1- to 2-page list using Microsoft® Word of the current requirements the FRD will need. First, list all the requirements that are functional, then list the non-functional requirements. The FRD will be refined as the development proceeds, so this list is a starting point.

Part 2: Your intern is struggling to understand the differences between Data Flow Diagrams (DFDs) and Entity-Relationship Diagrams (ERDs).

To help your intern understand the difference, create a 1- to 2-page comparison table using Microsoft® Word showing the similarities and differences between a Data Flow Diagram (DFD) and an Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD). The table should depict at least three points of comparison, as well as a justification of why you would use one approach over the other.

Cite all sources using APA guidelines.

WEEK  3

BSA 385 Week 3 Learning Team Assignment Software Engineering Management Tools


Instructions: Resource:   

  • Figure 6-8, "An example of a data flow diagram depicting a customer order system," in Section 6.3, "Requirements Analysis," in Ch. 6, "Requirements Engineering," of Essentials of Software Engineering Recall that the hospital only performs five types of surgeries, limits the patient stay to three days, and has a limited pharmacy offering of ten prescription drugs. And, the hospital employee using the program should be able to enter the patient information, including name, hospital ID number, diagnosis, surgery type, length of stay, and prescriptions. Using Figure 6-8, "An example of a data flow diagram depicting a customer order system," construct a 1-page data flow diagram for the Hospital's billing program using Microsoft® Word. The team will submit one completed assignment for the team. This assignment will help you complete this week's Individual Assignment. Cite all sources using APA guidelines.

BSA 385 Week 3 Individual Assignment Implementation Phase

 

Instructions: Resource:   

  • The module "Getting the Most From Your Sprints" of the Pluralsight course "Scrum Master Fundamentals - Foundations" with Jeremy Jarrell Continue your work using the scenario presented in Week One. The Director of Software Engineering for the company has determined that you will use an Agile approach for development of the program, including the implementation phase of the program. The Director has asked you to present to the rest of the team, including your intern, the implementation phase for the program development.

Create a PowerPoint® presentation containing 14 to 16 slides, including an introduction and conclusion slide and detailed speaker notes, that includes the following:   

  • A brief explanation of the Agile model and how an implementation phase works within the model

BSA 385 Week 4 Individual Assignment Quality Assurance and Versioning Plan

 

Instructions: Resources:   

  • Ch. 2, "Software Quality Attributes," of Software Testing: Concepts and Operations
