System Analysis and Design Coursework Brief Academic year and term:2020/2021 – Semester-2, Year 1Module title:System Analysis and DesignModule code:QAC020C154SModule Convener:XXXXXLearning outcomes assessed within this piece of work as agreed at the programme level meetingOn successful completion of this module students will be able to Demonstrate a broad understanding of the knowledge base of systems analysis and design concepts, and their terminology and discourse, including awareness that areas of this knowledge base are open to ongoing debate and reformulation, thus fostering a socio-technical approach to the analysis and design of systems.Identify and apply principles and concepts underlying the theoretical frameworks highlighted in this module and demonstrate an ability to identify strengths and weaknesses in an analytical fashion.Evaluate and collect information from a variety of authoritative sources to inform a choice of solutions to standard problems highlighted in this module, by applying the techniques learnt in a business context and evaluating the design decisions.Evaluate the reliability of data and information provided in this module, using pre-defined techniques and/or criteria, including an understanding of object oriented systems theory in a wider context.Type of assessment:           Coursework 1: Individual Systems Design Report (2000 words including system design documentation) -this will assess learning outcomes 1,2,3.   Coursework 2: Individual System Review Report (1000 words) -this will assess learning outcome 4.Assessment instructions and deadline:Coursework1: Individual System Design Report Submission by TBC. This should be submitted via Turnitin as a Microsoft Word file (see the deliverables required in coursework 1). Coursework 2: Individual System Review and Evaluation Report to be submitted by TBC. This should be submitted via Turnitin as a Microsoft Word file (see the deliverables required in coursework 2) Kind reminder: You MUST make a reasonable attempt at your assignment and submit it. Failure to do so may result in a CAPPED Resit and/or failure of the module. It is also the student’s full responsibility to ensure that all assignments are submitted on the correct link and on time before the submission date. Coursework Brief First read the scenario below and then design and evaluate a solution using an object-oriented analysis and design approach. You should use Unified Modelling Language (UML) for specifying, visualizing, constructing, and documenting the proposed systems. Your assignment consists of two pieces of coursework. Both pieces are to be done individually. Coursework 1 relates to the analysis and design of a system (worth 60% of the total marks of the assignment). This part of the assessment will assess learning outcomes 1, 2 & 3.    Coursework 2 is an evaluation report consisting of a critical commentary on coursework 1 (worth 40% of the total marks of the assignment). This part will assess learning outcome 4. The Scenario: Priory Central Dental Care Practice (PCDCP) Harborne council has built a new Central Dental Care Practice in the city and they want to create a digital management system that allows the staff and patients to use it easily and efficiently. The system will be used to: Record in the system all patients’ details including their personal and booking details such as name, date of birth, contact details, the date they joined, and the a date for their checkup.Admins should be able to search, delete and update patients’ details including booking and cancellation of appointments. It should also be possible for the patients to update their contact details themselves and to make and cancel bookings online (before 24 hours).   If a patient is late (30 minutes) for an appointment, the system should cancel it and should notify the admin automatically.Managers should be able to organize the logistics and equipment of the surgery and should be able to update the system with all available tools and devices required to treat patients. Also, he/she should be able to appoint alternative doctors in case the regular doctor is absent.It should also be possible to generate a full report on all of the bookings to admins and managers at any one point, together with all of the cancellations taking place. Coursework 1: System Design You are required to analyse the requirements of the new system and design the main components (e.g. overall system use case, class diagrams, interaction, sequence and collaboration diagrams) for Priory Council Dental Practice. You should demonstrate a broad understanding of Object Oriented design principles and UML techniques and you should apply them on the design of the following components:  Use case diagramShow one use case diagram with all primary use cases for PCDCP information system. Remember that the system box only appears on the top-level diagram (i.e. PCDCP system) and should contain use case ovals for all primary use cases such as register patient, book appointment, update booking details etc.Use case documentationDetailed use case description for the five primary use cases stated in your overall case diagram such as patients’ data registration and update, etc. Brief description for all other use cases Conceptual class diagramShow conceptual classes, associations with names (e.g. booking class), functions (e.g. update), and significant attributes such as in booking class you would have booking id, date, type (regular/urgent) etc.Show generalization, abstract conceptual classes, association classes, and aggregation if applicableProvide a brief description of all conceptual classes and main attributesInteraction diagramsSequence and collaboration diagrams including boundary and control objects/classes needed for the interaction diagrams based on primary use cases e.g. how to perform a booking, cancel, fine, and/or exclusion from the PCDCP system.Activity diagram based on a primary use case e.g. register in the system, book appointment etc.  Describe the proposed designs and justify your decisions. Assignment Preparation Guidelines Deliverables: Coursework 1 Coursework 1 (is worth 60% of the overall assignment) an individual report and will be submitted as a Microsoft Word file (suggested word count: 2000 words in total including all diagrams, documentation and description) via Turnitin on Moodle and must include all the required components related to the proposed design. Word count Don’t exceed the word count You need to state the word count at the end of their assignment. 10% over the stated word count is permitted without penalty. If students go beyond this, then there is a penalty of 5 marks for every additional 10% beyond the word count with a maximum of a 15 mark penalty reduction.  There is no specific penalty for submitting a piece which is below the word count, but please note that shorter submissions are likely to attract poorer grades, particularly where they lack the necessary depth of analysis. How do you calculate the word count?   The word count includes the Abstract or Executive Summary and all in-text citations. The word count does not include the Bibliography and Appendices.  Please note that Appendices should only include supplementary information, not information critical to your work. The marking criteria and assignment guidance is outlined below.

Your evaluation report should show evidence of your reading and research using the Harvard referencing. This is a chance to look back at  what you have done and to revisit the key design and technical decisions you made.  Were they the right decisions or would you do something differently? You should also discuss the lessons you have learnt from the exercise and how you would use them to implement them in further projects. Coursework 2 is worth 40% of the overall assignment. The marking criteria is outlined below. The marking criteria and assignment guidance is outlined below. Marking Criteria – Coursework 2 TasksCriteria /DeliverablesMarksReview and EvaluationScope of the project (identify the scope including specific goals, objectives and tasks). Understanding of the overall project complexity and how you tackled it using the relevant object oriented design principle, theories and tools.  Choosing appropriate software development methodology (choose an appropriate approach to develop the proposed system). Design areas to improve (the areas which did not go well, clarify what would you do differently if you repeat this project).

The word count does not include the Bibliography and Appendices.  Please note that Appendices should only include supplementary information, not information critical to your work. Assignment Preparation Guidelines  All components of the assignment (text, diagrams. code etc.) must be submitted in ….one-word file (hand-written text or hand drawn diagrams are not acceptable), any other accompanied materials such as simulation file, code, etc. should be attached in appendices. Standard and commonly used fonts such as Arial or Calibri should be used, font size must be within the range of 10 to 15 points including the headings, body text and any texts within diagrams, Spacing should not be less than 1.5 Pay attention to the Assessment criteria / Marking scheme, the work is to be concise and technical. Try to analyse, compare and evaluate rather than simply describe.  All figures, screenshots, graphs and tables must be numbered and labelled. The assignment should be logically structured, the core of the report may start by defining the problem / requirements, followed by the proposed solution including a detailed discussion, analysis and evaluation, leading to implementation and testing stage, finally a conclusion and/or personal reflection on learning. Screenshots without description / discussion does not constitute understanding and maybe assumed irrelevant. Please access your Turnitin Test Page via Dashboard or My modules to learn more about Turnitin and to make a test submission and to check your similarity score before uploading your final version  You will have opportunity to submit as many times to your module pages as you want up until the deadline. Make sure to make backup of your work to avoid distress for loss or damage of your original work, use multiple storage media (memory stick, cloud and personal computer). Please note file size limitation might apply. You work must be under 100MB.  Assignment support:    During the delivery of the module, you will have several opportunities to get formative feedback on your assessment during tutorials.  Although you will be guided throughout the module by your lecturer, you can get extra support for your assignment, just make an appointment with the ACE team for any language, research and study skills issues and/or talk, email the Computing ACE expert for any advice on how to approach your assignment. REMEMBER: they are not here to give you the answers! Students will have access to formative feedback on each task set in workshops, thereby helping them to refine their approach to the summative tasks that have been set.  However, please note that this feedback is limited to recommendations on improving your work. Lecturers will not confirm any grades or marks.  The feedback can be one-to-one or in-group sessions.  Finally, you will receive summative feedback within a month of your final submission. Please note that the summative feedback and the grades remain provisional until approval from the exam board.  Page Break  Plagiarism and Collusion  Academic Integrity is a matter that is taken very seriously at the university and student should endeavour to enforce it to all their assignments. In other words, plagiarism, collusion (working and copying from another student) and ghost writing will not be tolerated and will result in sanctions eg: capped resit, suspension and/or withdrawal. Correct referencing demonstrates your academic and professional skill. It also reflects your academic honesty and thus to some degree protects you from cases of plagiarism. You must write your assignment in your own words to demonstrate your understanding of the subject.  Material from external sources must be properly referenced and cited within the text using the Harvard referencing system, You are required to follow the Roehampton Harvard referencing System. Please refer to Moodle for the latest version of the Roehampton Harvard referencing System or ask the library. An accompanying list of references (on a separate page and in alphabetical order) must also be provided as part of your work.  Plagiarism: occurs when you present somebody else’s work as your own, whether that work is an idea, graphs, figure, illustration or a pure text. Be it available in web, textbooks, reports or otherwise.  Wholesale use of text and diagrams from websites is considered as plagiarism when not acknowledged.  Plagiarism will be dealt with firmly and can lead to serious consequences and disciplinary procedures.  Collusion: occurs when copying another student’s report (Text, Figures, Illustration etc..) and submitting it as your own.  Submission and Late submission  Students must ensure that their work is satisfactory and fit for purpose, both academically and free from any plagiarism. Students must use an appropriate coversheet, which must include the subject, assignment title, student ID and date-time. Tutors, lecturers and module convenors do not have the authority to extend the submission deadlines nor the exam time/date. In case of any mitigating circumstances, students should fill in the relevant mitigating circumstances form(s) available at —— Student Services —– The marking of the assignment will be capped at 40 if the assignment is submitted within first seven (7) days after the deadline, any submission late than 7 days will be ignored. The Submission File should be appropriate to the topic/title of the assignment and contain the Student ID, (Student ID-Assignment title) All coursework related material must be attached as an appendix in the final coursework/assignment document, including any computer-generated document, software/ code, simulation file etc..
