Managing a Student Project with Enterprise Architect – Part 3

Written by 

 

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this article series we introduced a student project that I’m managing at the University of Southern California Center for Systems and Software Engineering (USC CSSE).  USC’s location in downtown Los Angeles is at the epicenter of a lot of bad driving, so we’re attempting a “crowdsourced bad driver reporting system” this semester, and because we need to be really productive, we’re using Enterprise Architect to model the project.

 

The statistics on the costs of bad driving to society and to insurance companies are staggering.  Among the high points from the article linked above:  

·      A trillion dollars a year in costs due to vehicle accidents.  

·      Over 5 million reported accidents a year.  

·      An estimated 10 million additional unreported accidents a year

 

With these numbers there's a strong argument to be made for a crowdsourced approach – it’s the only viable way to get enough eyes on the road.  So this semester I’m working with a group of 15 Masters students to build a “proof of concept” system, following the Resilient Agile process and leveraging parallelism, with each student assigned to a different use case and all students working in parallel.

Doug Rosenberg founded ICONIX in his living room in 1984 and began training companies in object-oriented analysis and design around 1990. ICONIX specializes in JumpStart training for UML and SysML, and offers both onsite and open-enrollment courses.
 
Doug developed a Unified Booch/Rumbaugh/Jacobson approach to modeling in 1993, several years before the advent of UML, and began writing books around 1995. Design Driven Testing is his 6th book on software engineering. He’s also authored numerous multimedia tutorials (including Enterprise Architect for Power Users) and several eBooks, including Embedded Systems Development with SysML.
 
Doug has spent the last few years doing "deep dive" consulting into cutting-edge technology including cross-platform mobile app development, REST APIs, and NoSQL databases, and gaining first-hand experience on some "hardcore agile" projects of varying sizes.  He's also been working with dozens of graduate students at the University of Southern California Center for Systems and Software Engineering (USC CSSE), managing Directed Research projects and developing/piloting the Resilient Agile process.
