The purpose of this assignment is to provide you with experience in some basic tasks of a systems analyst. This is given in the context of an imaginary case study. In your second assignment, you will join with another class student forming a two-person group to develop your case study, working on additional analysis tasks.

Though it is expected that some of your requirements will be similar to others, it is also expected that each student will have at least one unique requirement in their project that differs from those of your classmates.
