10 Lets have a look at this first

11 Company background The Huddersfield Playhouse, a newly formed repertory theatre, wishes to have a new system for selling tickets and managing their various venues. They currently use an old-style system that is slow and cumbersome, and does not meet all their needs. They already have a modern computer and a printer that prints tickets.

12 Your role You are the business systems analyst assigned to the task by HudSoft, the new state-of-the-art software house. The project manager needs a clear picture of the system scope so that he can put a formal bid together. Not all the things that the theatre wants to do are possible, and some of them will be too expensive. You are there to determine in the first instance what is possible.

13 Huddersfield Playhouse We have been supplied with some basic information. The company needs to be able to: Make telephone bookings Make desk bookings on the night of the performance Transfer sales information to the accounts system Handle two venues, a main theatre and a studio Produce and maintain a mailing list Take bookings via their Web site
