Case Study 2: Software System Architecture

Case Study 2: Software System Architecture
Due Week 8 and worth 100 points

Read the case study titled “A Patient Information System for Mental Health Care”, located in Chapter 1 of your textbook. Develop an overall architecture for the system described in the assigned reading. Your architecture should be based on any one of the common architectural patterns (e.g., Pipe and Filter architecture pattern). Your architecture should be documented in text and in UML diagrams (at minimum a class diagram and a sequence diagram).

Write a paper in which you:

  1. Describe your chosen architecture pattern.
  2. Explain why you selected the architecture of this case study.
  3. Explain how your chosen pattern could be applied to this case study.
  4. Describe any shortcomings associated with your chosen architecture pattern for the case study.
  5. Describe how your architecture could be implemented in hardware and software.
  6. Develop a UML diagram to document the architecture of the system through the use of Microsoft Visio.

Your assignment must follow these requirements:

  • Fully develop your ideas:  While there is no specific page requirement, students are expected to fully develop their ideas using business communication language.  This means you must demonstrate to your professor you have absorbed the material and understand it.  A statement of fact should be supported by two or three sentences.  A paragraph should only contain one idea.  A fully developed idea doesn’t mean an exhaustive explanation in which students write everything they know, just enough to get the point across to the reader.
  • Make sure you do your own work: Never copy and paste material from the Internet unless the assignment specifically calls for that.  When you do make a statement of fact, you should cite your source.  You can support the fact with a quote, but use these sparingly.  Most of what you submit should be your own work.
  • Download the cover page and lorem ipsum outline with the proper formatting template from here. Use that with your submission.
  • Include charts or diagrams created in Visio. The completed diagrams / charts must be imported into the Word document before the paper is submitted.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Propose improvements to the theory and practice of software engineering.
  • Apply project management techniques to manage resources and issues in software engineering.
  • Write clearly and concisely about software engineering using proper writing mechanics and technical style conventions.
