Sample Case Studies: Swim Lane & ERD

Here are three sample case studies you can use to practice for the upcoming exam.  Each case study includes:

  • An initial narrative, that describes the business scenario for the case study.
  • A swim lane diagram, that outlines the ‘business process’ developed from the narrative.
  • An ERD, that defines the data requirements (entities & attributes) to support the swim lane diagram process.

The exam will be comprised of 25 questions; half will come from the readings/slides/study guides, and the other half will come from a case study like these samples.  The key is to 1.) read the narrative very carefully, and then 2.) base your answers to the questions about the swim lane and ERD on the information in the narrative.

The 2nd part of the assignment is the Word document showing your various screen shots, that you can submit to the site link sent out by the iT/A.  If you are confused about how to do this, then bring a hard copy of your screen shots to class and we will accept it.  But submitting the Word document to the site identified by Hana is the easiest and preferred way to submit the assignment.
