b)               Explain the format of data dictionary.

GROUP-C (Long Answer Type Questions)

Answer any three questions.

  1. A program is expected to have 50 faults. It is also assumed that one fault may lead to one failure only. The initial failure was 2 failures/CPU Hr. The program was to be released with a failure intensity objective of 5 failures / 100 CPU Hr. Calculate the number of failures before release. What is the difference between function oriented design and object oriented design ?                                                       10 + 5
  2. What is reliability ? Define ROCOF, POFOD, MTTF, and MTTR. What is cyclometic complexity ? Write a C program to calculate GCD of two numbers and calculate the cyclometic complexity of the pgrogram.         2 + 8 + 1 + 4
  3. a) Draw the context diagram and Level 1 DFD for the following MaiJ Order

Processing System.

“HMV Records is a mail-order company that distributes CDs and tapes at discount prices to record club members. When an order processing clerk receives an order form, he or she verifies that the sender is a club member by checking the Member file. If the sender is not a member, the clerk returns the order along with a membership application form. If the customer is a member, the clerk verifies the order item data by checking the Item file. Then the clerk enters the order data and saves it to the Daily Order file. The clerk also prints an invoice and shipping list for each order, which are forwarded to Order Fulfilment.”

b)             Explain when you use the PERT charts and when to use Gnatt charts, if you were to perform the duties of a project manager.
