    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 6. 
    A process model is:
    • A. 

      The output of the interviewing process

    • B. 

      The work plan

    • C. 

      The model that is produced by extreme prototyping

    • D. 

      The expanded and thoroughly balanced use case for a system

    • E. 

      A formal way of representing how a business system operates

  • 7. 
    Logical process models are:
    • A. 

      Models that describe processes without suggesting how they are conducted

    • B. 

      Coded logic models

    • C. 

      Models based upon implementing the if-then-else programming structure

    • D. 

      Developed by the infrastructure analyst

    • E. 

      Created in the system walkthough

  • 8. 
    The relation between use cases and data flow diagrams is generally:
    • A. 

      Use cases are developed by users and data flow diagrams are developed by systems analysts

    • B. 

      Data flow diagrams are developed first and then use cases ensue

    • C. 

      Use cases are developed first and then data flow diagrams ensue

    • D. 

      Use cases show logical processes, while data flow diagrams show physical processes

    • E. 

      There is not a relationship between use cases and data flow diagrams

  • 9. 
    Brianna has a process has two inputs but only one output.
    • A. 

      This is an error as there needs to be the same amount of inputs as outputs

    • B. 

      This is an error as process do not have inputs or outputs

    • C. 

      This is normal as all processes have two inputs and one output

    • D. 

      This is normal as all processes need at least one input and at least one output

    • E. 

      This is an error as processes only produce output

  • 10. 
    The relationship between use cases and data flow diagrams is:
    • A. 

      Use cases tend to be developed with users to make sure the analyst has fully captured the processes and relationships; DFD's are built upon the use cases to more fully formally understand the processes involved

    • B. 

      Both are tools in a systems analysts toolbox, although they do unrelated things

    • C. 

      Use cases are developed by users exclusively; while DFD's are developed by analysts exclusively

    • D. 

      Use cases come out of JAD sessions and clarify what was discussed by users in those sessions; DFD's come out of analysts' interviews.

    • E. 

      They are the same thing – use cases are process models using the DeMarco and Yourdon notation; and DFD's are process models using the Gane and Sarson notation.

  • 11. 
    Process models are only used to document the current system (that is, the “as-is” system), since that is the system the users know and is the system that will be modified.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 12. 
    Data Flow diagramming is a tool for doing process modeling.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 13. 
    Data flow diagrams (as the name implies) focus on the physical data in a system.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 14. 
    The major inputs and major outputs listed on the use case provide a list of the sources and destinations of the inflows and outflows on the processes on a DFD.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 15. 
    Use cases are the same as process diagrams.
    • A. 

      True

    • B. 

      False

  • 16.

      System boundaries

    • C. 

      System proposals

    • D.
