Systems Analysis and DesignSystems Analysis and Design
Stage 01: Requirements Document Instructions
Page 1 of 5
Introduction
Before you begin this assignment, be sure you have read the Udo, Marian, & Uduak
Corporation (UMUC) Case Study. Also, you should review your Stages 2 – 5 individual
assignments to get an understanding of the future projects that build on this initial stage.
Purpose of this Assignment
This assignment gives you the opportunity to apply the course concepts to document
system requirements. This assignment specifically addresses the following course
outcomes to enable you to:
• Achieve successful systems design, development, and implementation by
effectively applying the role of systems engineering and integrating with project
management
• Effectively communicate with stakeholders to determine, manage, and document
business requirements throughout the SDLC
• Perform modeling to assist with analysis and decision making
• Translate business requirements into systems by applying appropriate SDLC
methodologies and incorporating industry best practices
The Deliverable
Using the Udo, Marian, & Uduak Corporation (UMUC) Case Study, develop and deliver
a Requirements Document for a new billing and payment system. The document will
include a high-level description of the current information system that handles some of
the company’s administrative and financial tasks and identify the requirements for the
new system (as is/to be). It will also provide a high-level functional decomposition
diagram (FDD) of the new system. And, it will include a systems requirements checklist
for the new billing and payment system that includes five (5) key parameters for output,
input, process, performance, and control.
The Requirements Document must include the following:
• The paper should be 2 – 4 pages in length, plus diagrams and a checklist,
responding to the bulleted items below. The diagrams and checklist are not
included in the page count.
• Cover and a Works Cited page are also required. These are not included in the
page count.
• The Cover page must include an appropriate title and your name.

company’s administrative needs as described in the case study
o This should include a brief commentary describing the proposed billing
and payment system.
o This should include a process diagram.
• Functional Decomposition Diagram (FDD) of the new billing and payment system
o The FDD should be broken down to three levels as shown in the following
link”: http://it.toolbox.com/blogs/enterprise-solutions/levels-of-detail-forfunctional-
decomposition-14626
• System Requirements Checklist for the new billing and payment system
o You should have a complete statement for each requirement in each of
the following categories of the new system:
Process
Output
Input
Performance
Control
o Each requirement should be individually numbered within the category.

Introduction
Before you begin this assignment, be sure you have read the Udo, Marian, & Uduak
Corporation (UMUC) Case Study. Also, you should review your completed Stage 1
assignment and the Stages 3 – 5 individual assignments to get an understanding of the
future projects that build on this stage.
Purpose of this Assignment
This assignment gives you the opportunity to apply the course concepts to create a
Context Diagram and a Diagram 0 for the new billing and payment system. This
assignment specifically addresses the following course outcomes to enable you to:
• Effectively communicate with stakeholders to determine, manage, and document
business requirements throughout the SDLC
• Perform modeling to assist with analysis and decision making
• Translate business requirements into systems by applying appropriate SDLC
methodologies and incorporating industry best practices
The Deliverable
Using the Udo, Marian, & Uduak Corporation (UMUC) Case Study, build on the
Requirements Document you developed in “Stage 1 – Requirements Document” to
model the data and processes by creating a Context Diagram and Diagram 0 for the
new billing and payment system.
Create a document that includes the following:
• The paper should consist of the two diagrams (Context Diagram and Diagram 0).
• Cover and a Works Cited page are also required. These are not included in the
page count.
• The Cover page must include an appropriate title and your name.
• Use the Works Cited page to correctly cite and reference any sources you use
with APA format.
• Use the Grading Rubric to be sure you have covered everything.
• Submit your paper via your Assignment Folder as a Microsoft Word or Power
Point document with your last name included in the filename.

• Diagram 0 for the new billing and system
o This diagram should look similar to the one shown in: Textbook, Systems
Analysis and Design, Page 189 – 190
• Both diagrams will be evaluated on the following
o Completeness – The context diagram and diagram 0 fully depict the
system and the data flows.
o Process/Stores– Processes properly labeled, numbered, named using
verbs, following common symbol usage. Store (where applicable) –
Properly labeled, numbered, following common symbol usage
o Flow – Proper arrow usage depicting the flow of information between
process, stores and external entities
