    Project Iteration 3

      Process

      1. First correct the marked up errors in your project as soon as possible.
      2. Start in the scheduled class: Detailed description of the data in your project.
      3. Work in same teams.
      4. Hand in deliverables at start of next class.

      Goal -- Describe the Data in your System

      Details -- data stores/table/elements/columns/, methods and parsing of input, layout of output, Screen and web page layouts, ...

      Deliverables

      1. The usual front sheet with names and executive summary.
      2. DFDs: context+level0+ optional level 1s of complex level0 processes.
      3. Initial Data Dictionary -- define the data elements in each data flow in your DFDs. Provide at least the following meta-data:
        • Label/Name on DFD
        • Description
        • Aliases (if any)
        • Origin
        • Destination
        • Record Structure (name + the fields and data elements)
        • Volume and Frequency: how much, how often?
      4. A first conceptual ERD. The names of data stores in the DFDs should match the entities in the ERD. Some entities should have attributes. The attributes should be added to your data dictionary as elements if they are not there already. There should be some associations connecting some entities!
