10. How would you transform business requirements to functional requirements? While preparing Business requirements documents you mention why you need to built a system, i.e. problem statement. What you need to do while creating functional requirements is you have to specify is, solution of the problem. Specify thoroughly business problem and explain solution for the same. Business requirement documents does not necessarily contains solution part, functional requirement may contain it how end user wants the system to perform. Don't forget to add non-functional requirements same doc. Following is the instance of Business Requirement, Functional Requirement and Non-Functional Requirement. Business Requirements :- sales order is made against customers purchase order. Sales order is given for approval to upper authority Functional requirement:- Sales order shall be made with reference from Purchase order and it should be approved from upper authority. Non-Functional Requirement:- Sales order should be in proper format (Specify format) and six copy of sales order should be printed from printer in 1 minute. How do you resolve issues? I would rather focus on issues and the facts related. Origin of issue, severity of the issue, implications and possible solutions to solve the issue. Try not to focus on the person who brought up the issue. Another important part is how to avoid similar issues in future. 11. What analysis and modeling techniques do you use to translate business objectives into system requirements? Create project-initiation diagrams including business use cases, activity diagrams, workflow diagrams, flowcharts Determine project scope and derive context diagrams and project use cases from the business diagrams Detail the use cases by using activity diagrams or other techniques Create high level analysis dataflow diagrams, domain class diagrams, and entity-relationship diagrams from the use cases or other high level diagrams Recognize and understand the various design models, including the other relevant types of UML diagrams, detailed design entity-relationship diagrams, and decomposed dataflow diagrams Determine when to use which modeling technique, following them through a project life cycle, and understand which diagrams are derived from others Understand the basic concepts of normalization and decomposition so can converse intelligently on the topic and review diagrams that have been normalized or decomposed Mention some of the tools commonly used by business analyst? There might be various tools that you as a business analyst would be using depending upon the work environment. The primary tools are: MS-Office (Especially Word) MS-Visio (for visualizing the concepts, creating diagrams) But a lot of bigger organizations have been using Rational Software. Rational software licensing is expensive so you might not find it being used everywhere.

    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.
