1.3 Prepare diagrams according to required standards

2. Prepare schema

2.1 Analyse and document component connectivity

2.2 Identify and incorporate data flow iteration

2.3 Prepare component action diagrams according to required standards

3. Prepare component model

3.1 Review and update functional requirements

3.2 Specify interface components and component relationships

3.3 Prepare interaction diagrams according to standards

4. Iterate and review model

4.1 Conduct walk-through of current model and review functionality

4.2 Identify relationships and confirm integration of model

4.3 Review class service requirements

4.4 Prepare initial test criteria

4.5 Implement process for incremental testing

Foundation Skills

This section describes those language, literacy, numeracy and employment skills that are essential to performance but not explicit in the performance criteria.

SKILL 

DESCRIPTION 

Reading

  • Interprets and analyses text with complex terminology, diagrams, code, syntax, icons and symbols to evaluate current system functionality and technical requirements

Writing

  • Uses task related terminology and a formal document structure, choosing format and style according to document audience and organisational requirements
  • Uses required vocabulary, terminology, labelling and naming conventions to develop diagrams using industry specific design tools

Numeracy

  • Interprets numerical information and applies basic mathematical calculations relating to time durations and budgetary information

Self-management

  • Identifies and follows explicit and implicit protocols and meets expectations associated with own role

Planning and organising

  • Takes responsibility for planning and organising own workload, identifying ways of sequencing and combining elements for efficiency

Problem solving

  • Responds intuitively to problems in familiar contexts requiring immediate attention

Technology

  • Recognises and identifies purpose, needs and limitations when selecting devices and applications for different tasks
