Workplace Scenario

The purpose of this assignment is to introduce another modeling tool called the System Sequence Diagram (SSD). SSDs are a special case of UML sequence diagrams that illustrate the input and output events between actors and the system. Typically a SSD corresponds to one scenario from a Use Case. The SSD shows the interaction of the actor with the new system, so it is a bridge between conceptual design (analysis) and software design. In this assignment you will sketch a domain model, illustrating the real-world objects for one of your project use cases. Your supervisor will review the domain model and offer comments to help you to refine your understanding of the use case.
