Scope model

Postby huytnn Thu Jun 14, 2018 3:54 am

In the page of 90, Practitioner book says that: list of tool below are example of scope model

■ Organizational chart (described in Business Analysis Planning)
■ Use case diagram
■ Decomposition model (described in Business Analysis
Planning)
■ Fishbone diagram (described in Needs Assessment)
■ Interrelationship diagram (described in Needs Assessment)

but i thinks these tool are used for cause and effect analysis and there is no relation between these tools with scope model.

Please help me!

Let's begin with what is model:

It is a way to engage stakeholders in discussing what is important. When they see something visual, they get the information based on their knowledge next level of information is discovered based on their further engagement and collaboration.

Models can be diagrams and structured text - these models are presented in a way which is easy to understand and help in engagement.

Now Scope Models are used to explore and arrange features and functions, and boundaries of business domain being analyzed, now any diagram which shows higher level flow of information and what are the elements which can be developed and what are the roles which are working for those positions and functions - can be treated as Scope Model.



■ Organizational chart (described in Business Analysis Planning) - --> organizational charts can help to identify user groups, see how information is flowing through the chart and what functions are performed. This chart can engage stakeholders to discuss all these information by looking at this chart.
■ Use case diagram - Use case diagrams can be used to summarize the scope of a solution, highlighting the main features to be added
■ Decomposition model (described in Business Analysis
Planning) - It divides and subdivide a high-level concept into lower-level concepts, for example, dividing the project scope and project deliverables into smaller, more manageable parts for the purpose of analysis., means it helps in defining scope.
■ Fishbone diagram (described in Needs Assessment) - See how information is flowing among various roles which are available at various connected causes.

■ Interrelationship diagram (described in Needs Assessment) - Same as fish bone diagram
