SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS
DEFINITION OF PROBLEM

Introduction: A university needs to replace their current system with a new system to fit certain specifications. The old system was used to find the correlation of two subjects which would tell the university if two subjects would make a favourable combination for their students (major and minor combination choices). The system uses marks of two subjects to calculate and present the correlation in a report.

Problem definition: The current system to be replaced is not integrated therefore only allowed data to be enter

Changed with thethe system and calculated instantly, which is not the case in many different real life into DEMO VERSION of CAD-KAS PDF-Editor (http://www.cadkas.com). situations in which the person who collects and enters the marks is a person who has no interest in the correlation value the data is used by someone else for a specific reason; in this system it is finding the correlation of two subjects. Hence, the university requests their current system to be adapted to allow for the data to be entered without calculating the correlation value and be saved for use of the data by the university head of departments to calculate the desired correlation values.
