ABSTRACT: The purpose of this case is, first, to provide students with an experience in systems modeling, using facts gathered through interviews with employees who may not be skilled in presenting their responsibilities in a systematic, logical, sequential manner. Second, students will gain actual hands‐on experience learning and using a leading modeling language, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), through a popular Computer‐Aided Software Engineering (C.A.S.E.) tool. Finally, the students will be using those interview facts to model an object‐oriented system for processing cash receipts. In that effort, they will learn and apply the unique documentation techniques used in analyzing and designing object‐oriented systems with design features such as use cases, class diagrams with inheritance, and sequence diagrams.
