Using case and activity diagrams, briefly describe which one is best for your environment and state why. Also, research a biblical account and create a short Activity Diagram for it. Post your response as an attachment with your comments.
According to” Based on Metamodels of Activity Diagram. Modelling and Simulation in Engineering” UML defines several types of diagrams to view the dynamic aspects of a system. One of these diagram types is the activity diagram  which is used in this work to document the workflow in a system. “An activity Diagram resembles a horizontal flowchart that shows the actions and events as they occur. Activity Diagrams show the order in which the action take place and identify the outcomes”. (Tilley,2016) I work with a ticketing system and activity diagram will help explain what happens from the time a certain kind of ticket is placed and the outcome of the ticket. In this example I will use an employee who is request a password reset. I have attached a word doc with my activity diagram for the password reset and my biblical activity diagram.
The bible story I want to use is coming from Genesis 6,7, When God saw all the wickedness of man was great he said he will destroy man. Noah found grace in the eyes of the lord. God told Noah to build an ark he gave him the precise measurement how many floors he wanted what type of wood to use and where to place the windows in the ark. Who were to go in the ark with him down to what type of animals. The Flood came it rain for forty day and forty name the earth was destroyed all except the ark and the people and animals in it.
As someone who currently works at Walmart for a summer job, the use case diagram fits the environment the best. There are many different positions such as a cashier, a stocker, a manager, a janitor, and an order filler. Because all of these positions are working together and performing different actions to ultimately reach the same goal (to satisfy the customer), the use case diagram provides an accurate depiction of the work environment. This use case diagram allows for multiple different roles to be outlined, rather than an activity diagram representing the flow of just one activity.
For the example from the Bible, I chose Jesus feeding the 5000. This is a good example of an activity diagram because there were events that led up to the miracle, but the crowd of 5000 could have not trusted in Jesus. If they had not trusted that he could feed them with a few loaves of barley bread and two small fish, they would have been starving and they would not have witnessed Jesus perform a miracle.
