AutoPark Management System

Dream Builders, New York, has approached you to develop a software application that will automate the management of the vehicle parking system at their new shopping mall, Zing. Following is the problem statement in the words of Mr. David Wong, project manager, Zing, Dream Builders.

"We are building a marvelous piece of architecture, which is a huge recreation and shopping complex. We are expecting hundreds of customers every day and managing parking is surely going to be a big problem. We have enough space to park hundreds of vehicles but I am aiming at something different, a computerized parking management system."

What we want from you is a product that can help us automate the parking system. I do not know much of the technical jargon but I can tell you how I see it. Suppose I am an attendant at the entrance to the mall and a vehicle drives in, then all I should have to do is ask the driver his or her name and enter the name and the vehicle number into the computer. Then, using the software you develop, I should be able to look for a vacant location in the parking. I should then ask the driver to pay, and give him or her a slip specifying the location in which he or she has to park the vehicle.

Such a system will help us in various ways. For example, it will be easier for us to manage large number of vehicles, utilize maximum space available, and reduce manpower Moreover; our customers will surely be more satisfied because it will save them the trouble of searching for a vacant location to park. I am ready to invest a generous amount on this product but what I am looking at is a very innovative product."

Based on the above scenario and your understanding, create a 2- to 3-page document in Microsoft Word, that includes answers to the following questions:

  • What questions do you need to ask to get better understanding for this project?
  • What kind of requirement gathering techniques will you use to collect the full list of requirements in addition to what is listed above? Ensure that you pick at least two techniques.
  • How would you deal with the possibility of requirements change?
  • Using any drawing tool, create the following models for the autopark project:
    • Use case model
    • DFD
    • Software requirements specification document

Support your responses with examples.

Cite any sources in APA format.

Running head: PROJECT 2


AutoPark Management System



The project is actually carried in order to make work easier and more efficient. This is the
main reason why the latest technologies are used. Technology is almost taking over everything in
the world and applied in all sectors ranging from businesses to personal activities. We are in the
21st century and this is a period that has been termed as a digital era (Slemmer, & Rivenburgh,
2006). New systems are being developed almost on a daily basis to replace the old systems that
are considered to be outdated and not offering efficiency as required. The system to be designed
in this project has to provide parking solutions for both the owner of the mall as well as the
drivers who drive into the mall. For this reason, there are quite a number of questions that can be
asked by the person given the contract to develop this packing system and these will be asked for
different reasons.
The first question that can be asked before this projec...
