Briefing and Case Studies Quiz - see what you've learned...

So, as a pre-requisite to this quiz, you've worked through our briefing study and you've seen the guidance applied in our Acme Fashion Supplies case study.

Now see how much has stuck by answering this 11-question quiz. Good luck! :)

Where would you record the information about the volume of orders received per day by Acme Fashion's "Sell Product and Take Order" process? (tick all that apply)
In the Dataflow Diagram on the relevant dataflow
In the Logical Data Model where the "Order" entity is described
In the External Entity Description for "Customer"
In the Datastore Description for "Stock Master File"
In the Datastore Description for "Customer Master File"
In the Event Catalogue where the event to do with receiving orders is recorded
Which of these CAN'T be an external entity (tick all that apply)
A report
A computer system
Another business
A manager
A team
A biometric scan
When choosing some actual sample orders to include in the Feasibility Study report's appendix, which are the BEST samples to use? (choose just one)
Only neat, clean-looking ones because presentation is really important
An equal number from this year and last year so they can be compared
One for each main product grouping so sales volumes are represented
A representative mixture, including some with notes on them that indicate problems or exceptions
Ones that represent the peak, median and average sales values per order to compare against the To-Be, when implemented
How do you show sequence on a Dataflow Diagram? (choose just one)
By numbering the processes in the right sequence
By giving each data flow a number in the right sequence
By colour-coding the data flows, external entities, processes and datastores and then providing a key
Sequence is never shown on a DFD
What is an "Event" (choose just one)
An event is a team-building activity to bring the business and the project team closer together
An event is the achievement of a delivery milestone as shown on the project plans
An event is something significant that happens and which causes a message or report to be sent to management
An event is an (electronic) security breach, serious enough to need immediate corrective action
An event is anything that happens in the real world that causes system-held data to be changed
Which ONE is correct? A Dataflow Diagram...
shows business risks
shows the logic of business rules
shows data entity relationships
shows all exception handling
shows the sources and recipients of data
Which ONE of the following is NOT true about dataflows:
They contain data entities (or parts of them) that are also recorded in the Logical Data Model
They take part in the handling of events that are also recorded in the Event Catalogue
They can connect external entities to datastores on a current physical Dataflow Diagram
The ones that flow to and from external entities are also recorded in the Input Output Descriptions of the Dataflow Model
On higher level Dataflow Diagrams they can have arrow heads on both ends representing a two-way flow
Which ONE is NOT true? Amongst other things, a BA's role is to:
manage expectations of the business community
create and execute test plans that ensure business requirements are met
translate business speak into a language that solution providers can understand and vice versa
facilitate resolution of conflicting requirements
ensure each requirement is phrased without reference to a solution
Writing a Terms of Reference for the business analysis workstream is a good thing to do because... (tick all that apply)
it clearly lays out what's in and out of scope so there can be no misunderstandings that will be costly to correct later
its content gives your project manager confidence in your estimates for the business analysis workstream
it makes very early progress visible to the business, giving them confidence in the project
it allows the stakeholders to confirm that their interests in the project are stated well enough to guide the business analysis workstream
it contains enough detail to allow the project to be fully costed, thereby reducing risks and project issues
For the business area under study, a context diagram shows... (choose just one)
The number of levels the dataflow diagrams are to be decomposed to
All the major datastores used in the dataflow diagrams it decomposes to
The IT hardware and software used to implement the As-Is business environment
The external sources and recipients that interact with it
The in-scope business processes, data entities and stakeholders
Which of these statements is correct? (LDM=logical data model, DFM=dataflow model, DFD=dataflow diagram)
The LDM is usually started after the majority of DFDs have been decomposed to at least level 3
Input/Output Descriptions are usually completed to first draft before the bottom-level DFDs are drawn
Mapping processes into business functions is usually done before the bottom level DFDs are drawn
The LDM and DFM are developed in parallel as analysis progresses with interviews / workshops
The external entities in the LDM are used with the datastores on the DFDs to create the Event Catalogue
