Help me study for my Management class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.
In this individual practice exercise activity, you will create an Interface Structure Diagram in a physical modeling process. Generally, a systems analyst creates an ISD for each Process in a Level 0 DFD. In this individual practical exercise, you will utilize the data from the two DFD fragments that you created in Module 6.
You will design your ISD to show how a user would navigate through the various screens in the information system.
Create your ISD utilizing Microsoft Visio®. Before you begin to work on this activity, review the first five minutes of the Creating diagrams from templates (LinkedIn Learning.com 10:29) (Links to an external site.) video. This tutorial will present data to help you understand how to create the ISD. Refer to the ISD example in the textbook.
You may utilize this Interface Structure Diagram Template (VSDX) or create a new ISD from ‘scratch’ for this activity. If you choose to create a new ISD from ‘scratch’, ensure that you select the Categories (not Featured) menu selection from above the templates that are presented and select General/Basic Diagram. Once you open a basic diagram, select More Shapes/Software & Database/Database/Chen’s Database Notation in the Shapes menu and select Create. You will drag/drop and vertically combine three separate Entity shapes to build each of your interface elements.
You must present name data in text boxes that are reflective of the interface elements (screens, forms, and reports) that will be presented to the users of your inventory management system. You must utilize a tree-type numbering system for the interface elements.
When evaluating the menus, be sure to consider those that might be associated with your aviation-related business.
Your ISD data must address the following requirements:
- Submit your ISD in a Portrait orientation.
- Submit the following data in your ISD:
- Do not follow the data presented in Figure 9-10 in the textbook
- ONE main menu interface element.
- Title the main menu interface element “Main Menu.”
- Number the main menu interface element ‘0’ (zero) in the top section and “1.1” in the bottom section.
- TWO submenu interface elements under the main menu.
- Title the two submenu interface elements with the same noun-related titles of the two Data Stores in the DFD fragments submitted in Module 6.
- Number the two submenu interface elements as follows:
- “1” and “2” in the top sections.
- “1.1.1” and “1.1.2” in the bottom sections.
- Number the submenu interface elements in the top and bottom sections relative to the main menu numbers.
- THREE interface elements (screens, forms, or reports) per submenu interface element.
- Title the interface elements (screens, forms, or reports) with the same verb-related data of the two processes in the DFD fragments in Module 6. Note: You will have to create a new type of IMS process data for each submenu interface element to fulfill the requirement for THREE interface elements.
- Number the interface elements (screens, forms, or reports) in the top and bottom sections relative to the submenu interface element numbers.
- “1.1,” “1.2,” “1.3” in the top sections for the three interface elements (screens, forms, or reports) of submenu “1.”
- “2.1,” “2.2,” And “2.3” in the top sections for the three interface elements (screens, forms, or reports) of submenu “2.”
- “1.1.1” in each of the bottom sections of the three interface elements (screens, forms, or reports) of submenu “1.”
- “1.1.2” in each of the bottom sections of the three interface elements (screens, forms, or reports) of submenu “2.”
- Submit your ISD in VSDX file format.
