DOMAIN MODEL 

Object Oriented Programming

Assignment 2

 

Objectives

This assignment has two main objectives:

(1) Give you experience creating UML diagrams and models

(2) Emphasize that UML can be used to model just about anything, not just software designs

 

Introduction

Some software is general and widely applicable (e.g., web browsers, spreadsheet programs, word processors). However, most software is written to address the needs of a specific application domain. Hospitals need hospital software. Banks need banking software. Wal-Mart needs software that is very specific to their business. Software developers must understand the ins and outs of the domain at which their software is targeted. If you don’t understand how hospitals operate, you can’t develop hospital software. If you don’t understand how banks work, you shouldn’t be developing banking software. If you find yourself in the position of having to develop software for a domain that you don’t understand, your first step should be to learn about the domain. Domain knowledge can be gained in many ways: reading, attending conferences, talking to experts in the field, etc. As your knowledge of the domain grows, you should capture your knowledge by creating a document called a domain model. A domain model can include any form of documentation that usefully captures your newly acquired domain knowledge. Frequently a domain model will include both written language and UML diagrams that together model the concepts and processes of the domain. Not only will your domain model help you to clarify and remember what you’ve learned, it also will be a valuable resource during the requirements elicitation and software design phases.

Assignment

Your assignment is to select an application domain that is interesting to you, and create a domain model for it. You won’t have time to actually learn about a new domain, so pick a domain that you already know about. Most domains are far too large to model in a week or two, so select some small part of your chosen domain to focus on. If you can’t think of a domain that you want to model, you may select one from the following list:

  • A hospital
  • A bank
  • A retail or grocery store
  • A University e.g EAU
  • Faysal Mosque in Islamabad
  • The US government

For example, if you model a hospital, you would want to model concepts such as: doctors, nurses, patients, wards, medical tests, medical charts, the admittance process, the checkout process, interactions between doctors, nurses, and patients, etc. For the Mosque you would want to model the Mosque organizational structure, interactions between the various roles in the Mosque, Mosque processes, etc.

For this assignment you will use StarUML to make your domain model diagrams. Your domain model should consist of all the important things such as concept classes, associations, attributes, types, roles etc.

The Explorer Quest is an opportunity to explore a music-related topic you are interested in learning more about. You are encouraged to choose a topic that will benefit you professionally (ie: Research how music relates to your field of study, submit a project you can use as a sample for grad. school applications, etc) or personally (ie: Learn an instrument, learn a song, etc.). You are fairly free in choosing a topic.

 

The amount of XP you earn will be determined by three components:

  1. The Project Itself (max 100 XP)
  2. Works Cited (max 50 XP)
  • Self-Reflection (max 50 XP)

 

  1. The Project Itself
  • Written Project: Double-spaced, size 11 or 12 font, 2+ pages
    1. Write a short story from the perspective of someone living in a particular decade, an instrument tracing its evolution, a particular musician, etc.
    2. Write a journalism article on your topic.
    3. Write a literature review of various books/articles related to your topic.
    4. Read and summarize a music-related book. What did you learn? Be critical of the book and include your opinion.
    5. Write a research paper.
    6. If you are a parent, learn about music education techniques and try them out on your child. Write about the experience. You’ve just discovered an easter egg. Email Prof. S explaining a possible idea for your Explorer Quest, or if you need suggestions, ask.
    7. If you have an elderly relative with Dementia or Alzheimers, learn about music therapy techniques and try them out on your relative. Write about the experience.

 

*This should NOT be a stressful project. I expect quality work regardless of project format, but if you are having a jam-packed semester, let me know and we’ll work to make sure this isn’t just another assignment on the pile. I know what it’s like to be a student!

 

  1. Works Cited

 

Regardless of format, you are expected to properly cite at least five sources with your project (exceptions apply – see me for details).  Audio and video examples count as sources but must be cited properly.

 

Citations should come from reputable sources. I suggest searching for sources through www.scholar.google.com rather than conducting regular Google searches.

 

You may use MLA, APA, or Chicago format for your works cited page. For more information on how to properly cite sources, please see Brooklyn College (http://libguides.brooklyn.cuny.edu/cite) or Purdue’s webpage (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/).

 

  • Self-Reflection – 1 page, double-spaced, size 11 or 12 font

 

Regardless of format, you are expected to submit a self-reflection with your project. The reflection is a critique of your own work – what you did well, how you can improve, what you learned along the way, if/how you benefitted from this project, etc.

 

The reflection also serves as your opportunity to let me know what feedback you’d like and what I should take into account when grading. If you learned a piece of music, what kind of advice would you like me to provide? If you wrote a research paper, would you like suggestions on improving grammar, content, etc.?

Overview:

The purpose of this assignment is to learn about private-value auctions in both theory and practice. You have already participated in a classroom experiment dealing with auctions. In order to complete this assignment you will next need to; read a chapter in the book to learn about the theory of auctions, then you will do some minor analysis of the data from the experiment to compare actual play to predicted play, finally you will need to read an academic paper in order to learn a little about why we see a difference between actual and theoretical bids.

Step 1:

Read the chapter of the book that is posted along with this assignment. This will teach you about the equilibrium in this game and how to find the equilibrium based on the number of people bidding for the object. Note that you do not need to pay attention to the mentions of Second-Price auctions; we only did First-Price auctions. You will need to find the equilibrium bid for each treatment.

Step 2:

Use the data provided on Canvas to show how the average bid compares to the predicted bid. As a hint, you can try to recreate the following graph for Section C

You should make a graph for the combined sections (the sections are in different sheets shown at the bottom of the excel spreadsheet). You should also make a graph related to the profit earned vs the expected profit earned. I will not give you an example graph to go based on, try to present the data in a simple-to-comprehend way similar to the graph shown above.

Step 3:

Finish reading the chapter in the book that explains why the actual bids in this game are frequently different from the predicted bids. What is the reasoning for the difference in actual and predicted?

The paper:

Now write a paper that summarizes the experiment that was run, and the equilibrium bid and expected profit earned in each treatment. Then display the graphs that you made in Step 2 above. Explain the differences between the theoretical expectations and the actual behavior. Finally, use the knowledge you gained by reading the chapter in step 3 to explain why the differences between theory and behavior exist.

  • Title page that includes each person’s name. Groups may be 4 persons or smaller.
  • 3-5 pages long (including graphs, not including the title page)
  • Margins of 1” on each side
  • Calibri or Times New Roman font
  • Size 12 font
  • Single-spacing.

A few hints:

  • Make sure that you clearly label EVERYTHING in the graph
  • The 3 C’s of writing
    1. Clarity
      1. Grammar exists not as a method of torture (though it may seem like it). The purpose of grammar is to ensure that the reader easily understands the point you are attempting to make. If I am unable to understand your point, the fault does not lie with myself.
    2. Concise
      1. Do not blather on with unnecessary filler. I imagine that (based on my own personal experience), many of you were taught to write with a flowery exposition that carries on by your high school and perhaps even college English/Writing teachers. I do not want to see any of that. GET TO THE POINT! I am giving you three pages to make your point, that isn’t a lot of space, so make it!
    3. Complete
      1. While you do need to be concise, you must also make sure that you are telling the full story. Reread the paper to make sure that nothing is missing.

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
House2Home Franchise Application Database System
House2Home is a retail chain that operates throughout Australia and some foreign countries. Their main
business revenue is generated from selling computers, home electronics and furniture. Originally, the central
operational team manages all of the House2Home retail shops. However, due to the business changes, the
company increasingly franchise out their departments to different franchisee teams. So far, the franchise
application process has been handled using a paper based system. With the continuous growth of the retail
chain, House2Home wants to automate the application and selection process in Australia. For the automated
web-based system to work, they need an underlying database that can cater for the relevant data. They have
asked for a solution that will work best to support their business process, which is described below.
The company has many stores spread across Australia. To keep track of each store, the company wants to
store information such as unique store identification number, store address (including street & number,
suburb, postcode and state), weekdays operating hours and weekend operating hours.
The departments of each store are autonomous. A department is the unit of operation that is managed by a
franchisee team. A store can have several departments such as computers, electronics, beddings, furniture
and so on. A department with a unique id belongs to exactly one store. Other information pertaining to a
department are title of the department (i.e. computers) and number of employees.
The franchise application database also needs to store information about employees of House2Home as some
of them are eligible to submit a team application for franchise of a department. Each employee has an
employee id. The name, phone number, email address, home address, date-of-birth and gender of an
employee are also recorded by the company for convenience. Based on the nature of employment, there are
three types of employees in House2Home, i.e. casual, part-time and full-time. Casual employees have a casual
hourly rate. Casual and part-time employees are both not eligible for paid annual leave. Only full-time
employees are eligible for paid annual leave and the number of days they are eligible for are recorded against
each employee along with their annual salary. For each part-time employee, the weekly working hours and
annual salary are recorded.
Each employee is also categorized as either a local or a central employee. Local employees are those who
work for the department but do not have any affiliation with the central management. Central employees are
assigned to a department by the House2Home central management. The central employees have a central
authentication number or CANumber apart from their departmental employee ID. The CANumber is
recorded in the database for the convenience of the franchisee team. The central employees are not allowed
to operate the sales software used in the store. Only the local employees are allocated with EFTPOS IDs
using which they can process sales for customers in the store. Employees are assigned to a department, not a
store and are managed by that department’s franchisees.
As a private limited company, House2Home has many shareholders who are direct stakeholders of the
company’s business. According to company policy, only a full-time employee or a shareholder can apply
to become part of the franchisee team of a department. Also, a full-time employee must have at least 10
years of experience with House2Home before joining a franchisee team. Information about every shareholder
is stored in the records including their ID, name, address, number of shares and so on. The central
management stores further information about which shares are owned by a particular shareholder but this
does not concern the system that deals with the franchise application process.
A number of team members, who are either full-time employees or shareholders, must form a team before
applying for a franchise. Each team member is assigned a team member ID to be tracked easily. A team is
also identified by an ID and headed by one member of the team. Each team has a name that the team members
can pick. According to current policies, a franchisee team must have at least 2 members and can have at most
CSE2/4DBF (2018) – Assignment 1, Part 1 Page 3/7
______________________________________________________________________________________
4 members. A franchise team member can belong to a number of teams. The percentage of profit share of a
team member in a particular team is also recorded.
Each franchise application, made for a particular department by a specific team, is currently stored in a file.
An application has a unique application number, application date, date on which a decision was made and
the application status. A team can lodge any number of applications but each application can be made for
exactly one department. According to the current business process, a team submits a “Franchise Application
Form” (Appendix A) to formally apply for a franchise of a department. The application form contains
information about the team and individual team members including the information about the team leader.
When a new department opens up, the formal launch of the department’s business is held-off by the
management until a suitable franchise is assigned.
When the assessments of different applications are finalized, a department is assigned a franchisee team, who
take all the responsibilities of that department. There can be many departments across Australia that a single
franchisee team manages, but each department of a store is managed by one franchisee team.
There are some financial aspects associated with the franchise application process. For instance, when a team
is selected to take up the responsibilities of a department, they need to pay an initial franchise fee of AU$
100,000. Other transactions include commission on sale and maintenance fees. All the transactions between
a franchisee team and the central management are handled through company accounts. Each department has
a designated account through which franchisee pay different fees and receive commissions on sales. An
account is identified by an account number and has an account name. Moreover, the account balance indicates
how much money the management owes to the franchise team (positive balance) and how much money the
franchise team owes to the management (negative balance).
Although the details of sales transactions are not part of the franchise database, a weekly sales report is still
kept in the database for the commission calculations. Each department generates a weekly sales report on
Sundays based on the sales transactions for the week. Each report contains a report ID, the start and end dates
of the sale period, total amount of sales made by the department and a commission amount (based on
commission percentage) to be paid to the franchise team. Apart from these top-level details, the report also
contains information about the bestselling brand for the week. Information includes brand ID and name.
Additionally, most sold item type, average sales price for that type is also mentioned in the report. At the end
of each week, a single employee of the department is awarded with a weekly bonus based on his/her
performance for the week. Hence, the employee who has made the maximum amount of sales for the week
also appears in the report. For a comprehensive view, a sample weekly sales report is given in Appendix B.
The first weekly sales report of a newly launched department is generated at the end of the first week of
launch. It is important for the database designer to understand that any information regarding brands, item
types and employee performance is being extracted from the (separate) sales database (which we do not cover
here). Hence, the referential integrity constraints, for these items only, is not a concern within the scope of
the franchise application database.

Week X Case Study Assignment

Title That Describes the Intent of Assignment

 

Background

The purpose of this template is to prove guidance on both formatting and progression of ideas when drafting assignments.

 

We begin with the background section.  In this section, please describe:

The asset under review.  This includes type, age, class, location (metropolitan statistical area and submarket/neighborhood).  Also, include key metrics that are useful to consider when your reader is reintroduced to the deal and your new analysis included as part of this memo.

 

As this is a rolling assignment based on reading for each week, you will update the background section weekly throughout this course.  Your background should be specific to the new information provided each week.  For example, Week 3 asks students to apply debt to their scenario analysis.  Use this section to inform the reader on any updates to negotiations and how this update impacted your analysis throughout.  In the case of Week 3, you will want to share that the seller has partnered with a lender and also provide the terms of the debt offered.  Week 4 and beyond will have unique updates to provide.

 

Images can help here as you deem appropriate and as needed as the deal progresses.  Images may include maps, pictures of the property and surrounding location so as to provide context for your reader.  The formatting of your assignments may look something like what is presented herein. However, this formatting template is meant to act as a guide when completing your work for submission at Georgetown, and in your career.   Find opportunities to be creative in a manner that sets up apart from your peers.

 

Our weekly case study assignments will ask you to perform specific analysis so as to arrive at a conclusion for recommendation.  Our expectation is that you use assignments as opportunities to provide more than a summary of deal metrics.  We want to know:

  • What is the analysis telling you? What are your resulting recommendations?
  • It is equally as important to tell us about your perspectives on the deal; what you think and why.

 

Leverage Analysis (title will change with each assignment you submit)

In Week 2, we asked you to perform an unleveraged analysis for three asset class scenarios (Trophy, Class A, Class B).  Week 3 asks to (i) review scenarios; (ii) apply the debt terms that are described in Blackboard to each scenario (iii) determine the type of investor that would be appropriate; (iv) identify the proposed returns that the project would earn.  Week 4 will have novelty as will subsequent assignments.

 

 

 

 

 

Leveraged Trophy Analysis (title will also change with each assignment)

Begin your analysis by providing a description of the respective development scenario and follow with a table that summarizes your findings.  Best to have a simple, precise and clear narrative about what the reader is looking at in the table that follows your description.  Also, helps to briefly explain your understanding of the assumptions that drive this analysis.

 

You will want to provide sufficient narrative such that your instructor(s) can easily identify where you may have made an error conceptually and help you address it immediately.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

Leveraged Class A Analysis

Replicate format above based on analysis performed for Class A scenario.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Leveraged Class B Analysis

Replicate format above based on analysis performed for Class B scenario.

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

Sensitivity Analysis

Continuing with week 3 as an example, students are also tasked with presenting sensitivity analysis associated with this project.  Intent of these sensitivities is to determine a range of anticipated return to investors.  We have asked you to run the following sensitives below:

 

Rent Sensitivity Analysis

In support of your rent sensitivity analysis, your table will need to include a range of rental rates that are less than and greater than the projected rate that you concluded to earlier in this course (a range of at least 10% both positively and negatively).  Projected cash flow through to disposition will change in conjunction with corresponding change in rent, as will disposition values, net proceeds, and ultimately IRR to the proposed investor.  Ensure that your table has as sufficient range of rents to adequately capture the various scenarios we have asked you to run previously (Trophy rents; Class A rents; Class B rents).  Provide notes as necessary that offer helpful guidance to the reader regarding your assumptions and the associated risks therein.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

 

 

 

Construction Cost Sensitivity

As above, construction costs will increase based on the various scenarios we have asked you to run (Trophy, Class A, Class B).  The range of construction costs will impact the level of equity that your proposed investor will need to fund.  Cash flows for each scenario will reflect rental rates per scenario type (Trophy rents…) and will ultimately impact IRR, which your table should show.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that will allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

Disposition Cap Rate Sensitivity

As above, cap rates will be either higher or lower depending on the scenario. Buyers will pay more for better product, and less as the asset quality declines (no surprise then that Trophy will earn a lower cap rate than Class A, and Class B will earn a higher cap rate than Class A). Thus, disposition values will have a range based on range of cap rate, as will IRR.

 

  • Provide bulleted notes below the table that help guide the reader in the same format as has been included here.
  • What would be useful comments that will allow for a full understanding of your findings in the table above?

 

 

Recommendations

Take a moment to reflect on your analysis above and insights that your analysis provided that should be reinforced.  This is the ‘therefore’ section, and you are using language to motivate your firm’s leadership without also coming across as overbearing.  As an example for Week 3, it may be helpful to have a table that reflects the best option based on the sensitivities you generated.  Ultimately each week will require new insight based on leadership’s needs, so best to be flexible with your organization based on what you learned from performed analysis.

 

Our expectation is that you use assignments as opportunities to provide more than a summary of key metrics and also use as opportunity to concisely discuss impact on projected returns to investors based on new information provide each week.

 

What is the analysis telling you about risk? What are your resulting recommendations that are both realistic and can be achievable economically in the context of your investor’s requirements about return rates?  The purpose is to balance risk with your own solutions to continue deal flow and successfully create value.
