Select an information system used in your organization or in your school. Interview a systems analyst or designer who is familiar with the system. If you are unable to interview the analyst or designer, find the manager responsible for the business process or the most knowledgeable user (power user) to interview. When interviewing, follow proven methods for gathering data defined throughout the text. Prepare your interview questions in advance so that you may assure you obtain all the needed information.

Based on your data gathering and reading, regarding use case modeling in Chapter 7, develop a three- to five-paper (excluding the title and reference pages) that responds to the following:

Identify the business actors.

Create an actor glossary.

Identify the business requirements essential to use cases.

Create a case glossary.
