GeneralGuidelines• The work you submit must be in your own words. If you use a quote or anillustration from somewhere you must give the source.• Include a list of references at the end of your document. You must give allyour sources of information.• Make sure your work is clearly presented and that you use readilyunderstandable English.• Wherever possible use a word processor and its “spell-checker”.

The courseworkshould be submitted as one document in a report format in final submission.Assignment Scenario:The company is in need for developing an application to manage their employee’s data andprinting their payslips. Their employees are of 3 types: Salaried employees, who are paid a fixedmonthly salary regardless of the number of hours worked, hourly employees who are paid by thehour and receive overtime pay (i.e., 1.5 times their hourly salary rate) for all hours worked inexcess of 40 hours and commission employees who are paid a base salary plus a commission of15% of their sales. The company wants to write an application that performs its payroll calculationsand in having other database management functions like retrieval of records, adding and deletingof records, etc. The company wants you to write an application that performs the followingfunctions.• The admin can login and logout to the system.• After login, the system should provide options like add new employees record, changeemployee’s details, navigate through employee’s detail and to make a search for anemployee’s detail.• The system should also allow to print the employee’s payslips.Note: The learner is free to make their own assumptions in storing employee’s data and in carryingout their development either in GUI or console-based application.LO1C# has many features of OOP paradigm such as Encapsulation, polymorphism,constructors/destructors, Inheritance, abstract/concrete, interface, method redefinition,generics/templates, containers including its class relationship like Generalisation/inheritance,realisation, dependency, aggregation and composition. You need to examine the characteristics ofthe Object-orientated paradigm as well as its various class relationships associated with the abovecase study in C#. You need to discuss a range of design pattern from each of the creational,structural and behavioural pattern types. Further, you can analyse the relationship between theobject-orientated paradigm and design patterns used.LO2 & LO4In order to design a good solution for the given problem scenario using UML diagrams, it isimportant to make use of design model to understand its entities and its functional requirements.Department of Information Technology Page 3 of 5Therefore, based on the requirements in the above case study you need to design and build classdiagrams with attributes and operations of each class and the relationship, including inheritance ifany between classes. You also need to define your class diagrams in relational to Creational,structural and behavioural for the same functional requirements using a UML tool. Carry out yourown critical thinking and refine your existing class diagrams derived from your case study scenariousing a UML tool. Determine and reconcile the most appropriate design pattern used in your UMLdiagram from each of the creational, structural and behavioural pattern types within the givenscenario. At last, you should critically evaluate and justify the design patterns used in yourdesigned application from the range of available design patterns.LO3Based on your derived UML class diagrams in LO2, you are required now to build an applicationusing Visual studio, 2017/ 2019 or any other IDE. You need to develop relevant codes for theapplication in C# for the given purpose implementing your selected design patterns.Note: Programming Environment: You can use Visual Studio 2017/ 2019 or any other IDE of yourchoice available at the time as a programming environment. You must present your programmingskills using OOPS using C#.AppendicesNote: You should attach all the supporting documents as a separate file in the appendix section ofyour assignment.Relevant InformationTo gain a Pass in a BTEC HND Unit, you must meet ALL the Pass criteria; to gain a Merit, you must meetALL the Merit and Pass criteria; and to gain a Distinction, you must meet ALL the Distinction, Merit and Passcriteria.1.

Preparation guidelines of the Coursework Documenta. All coursework must be word processed.b. Avoid using “Textbox” in writing your assignment.c. Document margins must not be more than 2.54 cm (1 inch) or less than 1.9cm (3/4 inch).d. Font size must be within the range of 10 point to 14 points including the headings and body text(preferred font size is 11) in Arial.e. Standard and commonly used type face, such as Arial and Times New Roman, should be used.f. All figures, graphs and tables must be numbered.g. Material taken from external sources must be properly referred and cited within the text using Harvardsystemh. Do not use Wikipedia as a reference.3. Plagiarism and CollusionAny act of plagiarism or collusion will be seriously dealt with according to the College regulations. In thiscontext the definitions and scope of plagiarism and collusion are presented below:Plagiarism is presenting somebody else’s work as your own. It includes copying information directly fromthe Web or books without referencing the material, submitting joint coursework as an individual effort.Collusion is copying another student’s coursework, stealing coursework from another student andsubmitting it as your own work.Suspected plagiarism or collusion will be investigated and if found to have occurred will be dealt withaccording to the College procedure (For details on Plagiarism & Collusion please see the StudentHandbook).4. Submissiona. Initial submission of coursework to the tutors is compulsory in each unit of the course.b. The student must check their assignments on ICON VLE with plagiarism software Turnitin to makesure the similarity index for their assignment stays within the College approved level. A student cancheck the similarity index of their assignment up to five times in the Draft Assignment submissionpoint located in the home page of the ICON VLE.c. All Final coursework must be submitted to the Final submission point into the Unit (not to theTutor). The student would be allowed to submit only once and that is the final submission.d. Any computer files generated such as program code (software), graphic files that form part of thecoursework must be submitted as an attachment to the assignment with all documentation.e. Any portfolio for a Unit must be submitted as an attachment in the assignment5. Good practicea. Make backup of your work in different media (hard disk, memory stick, etc.) to avoid distress due toloss or damage of your original copy.Department of Information Technology Page 5 of 56. Extension and Late Submissiona. If you need an extension for a valid reason, you must request one using an Exceptional ExtenuatingCircumstances (EEC) form available from the Examination Office and ICON VLE. Please note thatthe tutors do not have the authority to extend the coursework deadlines and therefore do not askthem to award a coursework extension. The completed form must be accompanied by evidencesuch as a medical certificate in the event of you being sick and should be submitted to theExamination Office.b. Late submission will be accepted and marked according to the College procedure. It should be notedthat late submission may not be graded for Merit and Distinction.c. All late coursework must be submitted to the Late submission point into the unit (not to the Tutor)in the ICON VLE. A student is allowed to submit only once and that is also treated as the finalsubmission.d. If you fail in the Final or Late submission, you can resubmit in the Resubmission window.7.
