Context:In your reading and activities for this subject, you have discovered the concept of requirementengineering and the entire procedures that involved in the process derived from the real-world cases.You also explored the importance of requirement engineering and the relevant case studies haveguided you to understand it further. By undertaking this assessment, you will be able to contextualiseand explain the high-level concepts of requirement engineering and explain the role of requirementengineering in achieving organizational success.Task Instructions:You, as a group, should first read and understand the following case before proceeding to answer thequestions in Assessment Tasks section. Note that every piece of information provided in the followingcase serves a purpose.The caseABC Pty Ltd is a start-up tech company (the ‘Company’) based in Sydney Australia. They are currentlyseeking to develop a mobile app or a web application (collectively called an ‘app’), which provide ondemand trades & handyman services to their customers. The objective of the app is to connecttradesmen and customers. ABC envisioned that this app will provide a strong revenue stream to thecompany and other business opportunities from a wide handyman network.The founder of the Company has envisaged an app that enable customers to find trustworthytradesmen to get the job done; it is also a platform for tradespersons to find jobs and earn an extraincome stream. Typical jobs posted on the platform should include home cleaning, heating and coolingsystem services, gardening, airport pick up & delivery, IKEA furniture assembly, garbage removal,MIS604 Assessment One Page 2 of 10plumbing, and other tradesmen & handyman jobs. The founder also provided the following very highlevel and rough ideas for the app:For customers, they can post job(s) on the app, browse through tradespersons’ profile, and contactthem through the in-app instant messenger.For tradespersons, they can put up a profile on the app, browse through jobs available, and contactcustomers through the in-app instance messenger.Once the job is completed, payment can be made securely through the app. The customer will alsohave the opportunity to rate and review the tradesperson.ABC wants to push this app to the market in the next six months and have secured an investment forthis app.ABC has engaged you (i.e. a group of you) as the requirements analyst in this project.Assessment tasksPart A. As a group write a report addressing the following tasks:1. Establish your credentials in giving requirements engineering advice to ABC. Note that you arenot a student in this case. You are required to undertake some research and identifyqualifications, certificates or experiences related to requirements engineering that will add toyour credentials.2. Advise ABC Pty Ltd of the importance of requirements engineering, and the implications ofnot having in place proper requirement engineering practices in the project.3. Advise ABC Pty Ltd of the key processes in requirements engineering in relation to the project.Provide (a) a description of each requirements engineering process; (b) the objectives, themain activities, key stakeholders and outputs of each process.4. Advise ABC Pty Ltd of a plan for requirement elicitation for the proposed app. Given the natureof this app, what are the requirements elicitation activities you would perform? Justify yourchoices. Provide detailed descriptions of at least two requirements elicitation techniques. Forexample, if an interview is to be conducted, you will need to provide:• who are the interviewees;• who are the interviewers;• the interview questions;5. Based on the case description and use common sense, for the proposed app, lista. At least two (2) business requirements;b. At least five (5) functional requirements;c.

Table of Contents (ToC): should list the report topics using decimal notation. Need to include themain headings and subheadings with corresponding page numbers, using a format that makes thehierarchy of topics clear. Because you are including a ToC the report pages should be numbered in thefooter as follows: title page has no page number; and main text to have Arabic numerals commencingat 1. Create the ToC using MS Word’s ToC auto-generator rather than manually typing out the ToC.Instructions can be found here https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Create- a-table-of-contentsor-update-a-table-of-contents-eb275189-b93e-4559-8dd9-c279457bfd72#__create_a_table.

Your presentation should include:• The requirement elicitation plan;• At least two (2) business requirements for the proposed app;• At least five (5) functional requirements for the proposed app;• At least three (3) non-functional requirements for the proposed app;The presentation will be followed by a 5-minute Question & Answer session. All presentation will bescheduled in Module 3 (Week 5 and 6).General Assessment RequirementIncomprehensible submissions. Assessments provide the opportunity for students to demonstratetheir knowledge and skills to achieve the required standard. To do this, assessment responses needto be both clear and easy to understand. If not, the University cannot determine that students havedemonstrated their knowledge and skills. Assessments will, therefore, be marked accordinglyincluding the potential for 0 (zero) marks where relevant.Case study. Assessment response must focus on the case study scenario given in the Task Instructions.Any assessment items that do not address the case study scenario may be awarded 0 (zero) marks.MIS604 Assessment One Page 4 of 10Track changes.
