CS-255-T4175 System Analysis & Design
You have reviewed the Module Four resources and spent some time learning about object models and Gantt charts. You will spend some time discussing these concepts with your classmates in order to gain a deeper understanding of the topics and how they apply to system analysis and design.
Before creating your initial post, you will need to create your Gantt chart for Project One. Review the “Schedule Planning” portion of the DriverPass Interview Transcript. There you will find a discussion about the different tasks and their prioritization. You will also find a table that lays out the different tasks. Using the CASE tool Lucidchart, create a Gantt chart of the tasks for the DriverPass project. Use the Lucidchart Tutorial to support you in this task. Download your Gantt chart as a PDF. Be sure to check the “Accessible PDF” box before downloading.
In your initial post, be sure to address each of the following:
Why is object modeling important for system analysis and design?
How are the object-oriented concepts of encapsulation and polymorphism related to object models?
What are the differences between an object and a process model?
What benefits do you see in using a Gantt chart for scheduling purposes?
What challenges did you experience when creating your Gantt chart?
Finally, be sure to attach a copy of your Gantt chart to your initial post.
In your response posts to your classmates, address the following:
Analyze the differences between process and object models and pose additional questions and comments based on your analysis of these two models.
What similarities and differences do you see between your Gantt chart and your classmate’s?
Share a strategy that might help your classmate overcome the challenge they experienced.
