INSS101 Group assignment
Due date: 9 May 2022
Question 1
For this question, you are required to carefully read the systems requirements statement and the process of assigning tasks to members. Basically, this describes an assigning task to members use case.
Systems requirements statement
The Project Director creates the teams for a given project, assigns employees to the teams, and assigns a team leader.
The Project Manager is responsible for assigning tasks to the various teams working on the projects(s).
The Team Leader assigns tasks to the team members. For all intents and purposes, the various team leaders in the class will mimic this because they are also responsible for assigning tasks to their team members working on this case (automating these activities).
The process of assigning tasks to members
The team leader handles this activity. The team leader will start by selecting a team member chosen for his/her team; and, subsequently, will choose tasks from a list box and assign those selected tasks to the selected team member. This process would be repeated until all team members have been assigned the tasks for which they are responsible. This will be communicated to the project manager so that the project manager can assemble a complete Gantt chart and PERT chart for the business system project.
You are required to draw an activity diagram for this particular use case. You are encouraged to use your own creativity in augmenting any additional functionality as long as you specify your assumptions. You need to show all the activities done by the system, project director, project manager and team leader. In addition to that you need to also show all the conditions/decisions that are taken and not forgetting the starting point and ending point of the activity diagram.

Question 3
You have been tasked with developing an automated system to replace the current, manual, error-prone process. The automation of this activity has been welcomed by management for quite some time with the anticipation of significantly reducing the company’s expenses. It is hoped that this reduction will be accomplished by 1) creating more successful teams working with greater precision, 2) completing projects on time and within budget due to a better understanding of system requirements and tasks to be completed, and 3) starting projects on time as a result of the automated project scheduling system.
