# Project #77970 - CMIS 102 Introduction to Problem Solving and Algorithm Design - Final Project Plan

## Instructions

Final Project Plan

Your final project will be to analyze, design, and document a simple program that utilizes a good design process and incorporates sequential, selection and repetitive programming statements as well as at least one function call and the use of at least one array.  The specific problem you need to solve for the final project is:

Design a program that will allow a user to Input a list of your family members along with their age and state where they reside. Determine and print the average age of your family and print the names of anyone who lives in Texas.

For this part of the deliverable, there are 2 components of your submission including:

• Program Description- A detailed, clear description of the program you are building.
• Analysis- Demonstrates your thought process and steps used to analyze the problem. Be sure to include the required input and output and how you will obtain the required output from the given input? Also, include your variable names and definitions. Be sure to describe the necessary formulas and sample calculations that might be needed. Talk about the functions you plan to use and how you will use arrays. Be sure to talk about the types of programming statements that will be used on why.

1. Family sizes vary, however you should design to be able to enter at least 50 Family members.
2. Your test cases should have at least 5 family members.
3. Be sure to separate some functionality into functions or submodules. Having all functionality in the main module is not a good design.
4. Your design should consider how to indicate the family member entry is complete.
5. Carefully consider the best data type for each of your variables. (e.g. when to use Float versus Integers versus Strings)

Criteria

(72-80 points)

Identify required inputs and output; describe in sufficient detail the process used to get the output using the inputs.

Provide all variable names and definitions (names should be descriptive enough and appropriate for information they hold).

Provide necessary formulas along with sample calculations.

Analysis leading to a design that reliably and efficiently produces desired output, and meets project specifications.

Obvious extra analysis was included resulting in new functionality and features to dramatically improve the application.

(56-71 points)

Identify required inputs and output; describe in sufficient detail the process used to get the output using the inputs.

Provide all variable names and definitions (names should be descriptive enough and appropriate for information they hold).

Provide necessary formulas along with sample calculations.

Analysis leading to a design that reliably and efficiently produces desired output, and meets project specifications.

(0-55 points)

Most inputs and output were missing detailed descriptions or incorrect.

Most variable names were missing definitions and appropriate descriptions.

Most necessary formulas along with sample calculations were missing or incorrect.

Analysis seemed short and missing major major project specifications details.

(18-20 points)

A detailed project description is provided.

A detailed accounting of the approach used to solve this problem was provided.

(14-17 points)

A detailed project description is provided.

(0-13 points)

No or minimal project desciption was provided
