CI102 LAB 6 Quiz Note: You should take Quiz 2 at the start of your lab period. Objectives 1. Define an initial architecture for your project. 2. Create architectural diagrams to represent your system from at least two perspectives – an overview of the entire system, and one more particular perspective. Designers and developers need to have a common understanding of the system that they are building. Architectural design provides that understanding at a high level. This is commonly done with an Overview diagram, and various architectural perspectives. The architectural design gives everyone the “big picture” view of the system. This lab will help you create and document an initial architecture for your system. Procedure Step 1 – Create a System Overview Diagram An Overview Diagram helps people understand the following: System boundary – The boundary tells where the system begins (or ends). Things inside the boundary are part of the system; things outside the boundary are not part of the system; anything that crosses the boundary is an interface. System components – Try to identify the major parts of your system from a technical perspective. Typical major components are: Screens or Web pages that your system displays Databases that you design and whose data is part of your system Files (e.g., data that is part of the system but not stored in a database) Code that you write or incorporate into your system 1.A - Use Figure 6-1 to start to define your system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
