IMPORTANT NOTE
For this requirement you needed to show
1) Current Processes
2) Requirements.
These are two different things. Note that in the PIR, both of these combined are worth more than 50% of the grade. So, it’s important that you get this down.

For the Current Processes, you needed to show the following details for each process:
a) Process name
b) Input
c) Process
d) Output

See below for an example.

For Requirements, you needed to show a bulleted list of what you want the system to have in the form of “The system mush have…”, or “The system shall have…”.

Example: You need to make sure each section has appropriate information.

  • It’s important to properly name a process. Use the Verb_Noun format where the Verb shows what happens to the Noun e.g. Print_PayrollChecks.
  • In the “Input” section you need to show what goes into the “Process” section. You don’t include any logic in here. Just show what goes in. Avoiding using “verbs” since these show “action” i.e. “process”.
  • The “Process” section shows what happens to the input sent through the “Input” section. Think of this section as the place where things happen. You need to show the steps that get carried out to show the process. If you think of a meat grinder as the process, the input=”meat”, the process=”employee place meat in a grinder. The grinder is a machine that has a cylinder which rotates in metal chamber and grinds product sent through. employee rotate handle. Ground meat comes out of grinder”, and output=”ground meat”
  • The output section is similar to Input, but here we show what comes out of the “Process”. No activity shown here i.e. do not use any verbs.
