Assignment 2 Structural Modeling and Behavior Modeling

Structural Modeling and Behavior Modeling

Refer to the functional model attached to complete this question.

Based on your performance, ABS management was so satisfied that it wants you to develop both the structural and behavior models. This way, ABS can fully understand both the interaction that would take place between the users and the system, and the system itself in greater detail.

Note: You may create and / or assume all necessary assumptions needed for the completion of this question.

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

  1. Create Class-Responsibility-Collaboration (CRC) cards and a class diagram based on the functional models through the use of graphical tools in Microsoft Word or Visio. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
  2. Identify each use case in the functional model and create a sequence and communication diagram for each scenario of each use case identified through the use of graphical tools in Microsoft Word or Visio. Note: The graphically depicted solution is not included in the required page length.
  3. Create a behavioral state machine for each of the complex classes in the class diagram.
  4. Perform a CRUDE analysis to show the interactivity of the objects in the system.
  5. Perform a verification and validation walk-through of each:
    1. Functional model
    2. Structural model
    3. Behavioral model
  6. Revise the requirements document created in the attachment with additional information found in this assignment and document the assumptions.
  7. Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA format
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
  • Include charts or diagrams created in Visio and the completed diagrams / charts must be imported into the Word document.


Education problem of practice from a structural organizational lens

  • Identify and briefly describe a complex problem of practice. By “briefly describe,” I mean no more than half a page. 
    • Problem of Practice: Does tenure for university professors create a culture where teachers don’t need to care about their students/course work to keep their jobs?
  • Describe how the structural frame and its underlying theories inform your understanding of the organizational causes of this complex problem of practice.
  • The purpose of this paper is to use and apply the structural frame and related theories, not to summarize the content of these Chapters. You can assume that I have read and understood the book, so there is no need to tell me stuff I already know.
  • Applications should clearly be labeled with components of each frame and related to theorists/researchers.
  • When possible, you can also make connections between the reading and other research and theorists. Do so, when possible, to develop your historical, integrated, conceptual, and theoretical understanding.

Your objective in this assignment is to be accurate and complete.  Your writing should be clear and unambiguous.  There should be no unanswered questions in the reader’s mind about your written work or about what Bolman and Deal (2013) have written regarding the Structural Frame and the relationship to other theorists and researchers. 

Paper should:

  • be free of errors such as typographical, grammatical, and/or spelling,
  • represent the high quality of thinking and writing expected of doctoral students,
  • use APA style (familiarize yourself with this style manual),
  • have a cover sheet, page numbers, and a list of references following the APA style manual.
