Software Engineering – I Assignment No.2 Idea Solution and discussion due date Nov 19, 2012
Existing budgeting system of an XYZ university is mostly based on paper work. To get rid of file work, university wants to change its budget control system to a web based application. Purpose of this web based online budgeting control application is to provide an electronic environment for fast processing of university budget related tasks.
With online budgeting control system, management will be able to add more departments and even more sections within the departments. Concerned people ofdifferent departments will be able to check that how much budget is consumed in different sections like stationary section, furniture section etc. Developed system will show which section is underflow and which is overflow in terms of finance. This software will also track that how much indent (expense) requests are in a pipe line and how muchestimated cost is required for these. Online budgeting control system will have a user-friendly interface. It will fulfill all the user and business requirements of the Budget Allocation & Control staff. It will also provide required documents (reports etc) efficiently, provide the information to management and will help them in decision making.

Considering the above description,
Question 1) You are required to draw a use-case diagram for online budgeting control system.
(Hint: Keep in mind the modules of online budgeting control system and assignment 1 solution.)
Question 2) You are required to draw context diagram (level-0).
(Hint: Keep in mind that context diagram defines the system boundaries.)
