first step in writing a software application is to determine the requirements.
There is no value in writing a program that does not address the needs of the
client. Requirements can be gathered in many ways, but ultimately, the
requirements serve to document what the application should and should not do.
After the requirements are written, the application design can be prepared,
followed by the actual coding. For this project, you will gain some practice in
the design phase of software development by designing a program that will meet
a given set of requirements.
Develop a console program
that simulates a section of a restaurant menu. Each item will have a different
price and your program should define at least ten (10) items. You will need to
obtain an order from the user who should provide their menu selection along
with quantity. The total cost for the meal must be calculated. The user will
enter the amount of their payment ($10, $20, etc.). The program needs to
calculate the amount due back to the user (payment minus total cost of meal).
project instructions and deliverables are as follows:
Create a document in Word (name the design
document yourName_Unit2.IP), and add the following:
Course number and name
List the data items that must be stored
and used by the program. Each data item should be given a name for reference.
Develop a UML class diagram that illustrates the data items for your program.
List the decisions the program must
make. References to the data items in the previous step should be used where
Describe the flow of operation of the
program by preparing pseudocode or a UML activity diagram. All key activities
should be included, and references to the data items and decisions listed in
the previous steps should be used.
Create a zip that includes your project
folder and Word document, and upload it to the course portal.
