Modeling Exercises

Review Questions

  • Create an ER model for managing music, e.g. a library of MP3 files. Mind the different roles of the very same artist!
  • Create an ER model for the representation of bills of materials (BoM, "Stücklisten") (see slides for more details)
  • Create an ER model for the representation of tickets for events. Expand this to a system for the representation of tickets for points of interest (e.g. museums) and transportation services (e.g. subway).
  • Create an ER model for the representation of Airline flight plan & seat management
  • Create an ER model for the representation of student evaluations for instructors at universities or schools.
  • Convert examples from the previous units from ERM notation to UML class diagrams.
  • Why is it often wrong to model the current state of affairs in a business, as far as processes and data structures are concerned?
  • Explain how the massive economies of scale for distributing software limit the economic feasibility of individual software development.
  • Explain how Business Process Reenineering repeats Taylor's mistake of ignoring change as a constraint on the economic feasibility of searching for individual process optimizations in a dynamic environment.
  • Model a business process of your choice as both a basic flow chart and an EPC diagram.
