Assignment Errors

Hi there
I have noticed in few uses cases of my assignment the terminology used to refer to entities is not correct.
For example in one of the use case it says "User representative searches for closed bid requests with a PO raised. and then next step is "Dreamcar representative selects the bid of interest". Is it a problem or I am not interpreting it properly?

Thanks
Amit

The assignment cannot be totally wrong..there are going to be some ambiguities that you can correct but make sure you document it.
Refer to my blog-i have gone thru the assignment many a times and then discussed with the JR forum members. One can make less than 20% changes(i came up with this number on my own...for the sake of disclaimers....) in the BDM or assignment, refrain from changing the problem statement.

So in this case is it fair to add a middle step between the 2 provided steps and say "Dreamcar representative selects the bid request of interest and system displays all the bids for the selected bid request.
OR change the given first step to say Dreamcar representative searches for closed bid (and not bid request) with PO raised

Can't comment on that...as my assignment was different.

Closing this topic as conversations about how to implement the solution are not allowed. You are supposed to be the company architect - you provide solutions for the company, not ask the company for solutions. For more information read: IMPORTANT - Position on real assignment (Part 2) questions.
