Could Business Domain Model given be changed?

Hi everyone. I'm new to this amazing group and I recently download the part 2 project to implement.

Well, as I'm in the beginning I started up with a little doubt. I�ve read on other people's notes that some that had passed the exam didn�t change the BDOM (Business Domain Model) given.

Of course may be I'm wrong but I haven�t found the "no longer available" analyst to discuss if this Business Domain Model could be optimized.

I think the entities "Flight" and "Equipment" presented on this case study could be merged based on the representation and cardinality. It would simplify (optimize) the representation.

Any thoughts ?

There are many ranchers who have passed SCEA without changing the BDM. However, you can change it based on your thought process, about the core business (For me the Flight and Equipment are two different business entities). Just remember to mention any changes to BDM in your Assumptions document and you will be ok.
