REA model with minimum and maximum cardinalities of the business process. Make up a company in you assigned industry. Industry assignments are available under Project Step 1 folder. 2. Create a narrative for your transaction cycle – must be unique. (Use of safe assign to check for non-original work). In a paragraph (about 100-150 words), briefly explain how that transaction cycle works in your company. You can take a look at the descriptions we have seen in the REA Exercises, but as long as you explain things clearly, you do not have to use a similar language. 3. Complete an REA model with minimum and maximum cardinalities of the process (transaction cycle) you will be prototyping for your System Project. a. Model one complete transaction cycle REA model with cardinalities. b. Design two many-to-many relationships in your REA model. 4. Identify the 2 related events you want to choose for your system project. These 2 events must be connected by a relationship line. Your narrative should be completed in MS Word. The REA model based on your narrative can be handwritten for this assignment, although your final project will require the REA model to be completed using a computer application. Your REA model for this assignment and your final project should include your complete transaction cycle.
REA model with minimum and maximum cardinalities
However, your final project and implementation require you to only prototype (build in Access) your 2 chosen events (and related agents & resources). How to choose business processes: An expanded business process listing for Sales/Collection & Acquisition/Payment processes is on page 2 below and in the text book. Page 3 below shows 2 prior student examples of Step 1. If you decide to go with another business process (e.g. Payroll Cycle), please refer to the book for its events and other characteristics. While you may not have to use all the events listed on page 2, the more realistic (for your chosen company in your assigned industry) and detailed your model is, the higher your grade will likely be. Pages 3 and 4 below shows 2 prior student examples of Step 1. The REA on Page 3 is for a Real Estate company. The REA on page 4 is for a payroll processing company. This one is computer drawn because this was the final project submission. Step 1 can be hand drawn – but make sure to identify the two events that will be selected for the remaining part of the project. The two selected events need to be connected. These examples use the Chen’s method to denote cardinalities, but you may also use the Crow’s method for cardinalities (we used this in the past lectures). Upload your written narrative and REA model. The REA can be handwritten, although your final project will require this to be completed using a computer application.
