IT Solution Stage 1



Stage 01: Requirements Document Instructions




Introduction  (Please see attachment also)




Before you begin this assignment, be sure you have read the attached Udo, Marian, & Uduak


Corporation Case Study. Also, you should review your Stages 2 – 5 individual


assignments to get an understanding of the future projects that build on this initial stage.








Stage 2 –  Data & Process Models


Stage 3 –  Decision Table & Decision Tree


Stage 4 –  Systems Deployment Decision Paper


Stage 5 –  Change Control Board Memo




Purpose of this Assignment




This assignment gives you the opportunity to apply the course concepts to document


system requirements. This assignment specifically addresses the following course


outcomes to enable you to:




·         Achieve successful systems design, development, and implementation by


effectively applying the role of systems engineering and integrating with project






·         Effectively communicate with stakeholders to determine, manage, and document


business requirements throughout the SDLC




·         Perform modelling to assist with analysis and decision making




·         Translate business requirements into systems by applying appropriate SDLC


methodologies and incorporating industry best practices




The Deliverable




Using the Udo, Marian, & Uduak Corporation Case Study, develop and deliver


a Requirements Document for a new billing and payment system. The document will


include a high-level description of the current information system that handles some of


the company’s administrative and financial tasks and identify the requirements for the


new system (as is/to be). It will also provide a high-level functional decomposition


diagram (FDD) of the new system. And, it will include a systems requirements checklist


for the new billing and payment system that includes five (5) key parameters for output,


input, process, performance, and control.




The Requirements Document must include the following:




·         The paper should be 2 – 4 pages in length, plus diagrams and a checklist,


responding to the bulleted items below. The diagrams and checklist are not


included in the page count.




·         Cover and a Works Cited page are also required. These are not included in the


page count.


·         The Cover page must include an appropriate title and your name.






·         Use the Works Cited page to correctly cite and reference any sources you use


with APA format.




·         Use the Grading Rubric to be sure you have covered everything.




·         Submit your paper via your Assignment Folder as a Microsoft Word document


with your last name included in the filename.




·         “As-Is” Process




Ø  “As-Is” refers to the current system as described in the case study that


does not meet the company’s administrative needs




Ø  This should include a brief commentary describing the existing information


system and its shortcomings.




Ø  This should include a process diagram. (See example in Helpful


Resources, below)




·         “To-Be” process




Ø  “To-Be” refers to the new billing and payment system that meets the


company’s administrative needs as described in the case study




Ø  This should include a brief commentary describing the proposed billing


and payment system.




Ø  This should include a process diagram.




·         Functional Decomposition Diagram (FDD) of the new billing and payment system




Ø  The FDD should be broken down to three levels as shown in the following








·         System Requirements Checklist for the new billing and payment system




Ø  You should have a complete statement for each requirement in each of


the following categories of the new system:




_ Process


_ Output


_ Input


_ Performance


_ Control




o Each requirement should be individually numbered within the category.
