In the case that a written exam is not possible, an alternate method of taking the DEMO 4 Professional is available in the form of an oral exam. For this oral exam, you, the candidate, are required to make a DEMO model of your (As-Is and To-Be) situation at beforehand – by which you can earn 60 points – and to answer questions on your modelling choices and underlying theory during the exam – by which you can earn 40 points.
In more detail, the following requirements apply.
We appoint 40 points for the description of the As-Is situation of the organisation chosen by the candidate. You fulfilled these requirements:
- You wrote a narrative of the case in a maximum of 500 words.
- You modelled a CM: one OCD and its associated CSD and TPT (with a minimal amount of 4 and a maximum of 7 transactions).
- You modelled a PM: include every non-trivial PSD, so a PSD for each process that contains more than one transaction.
- You modelled an FM: An OFD that contains at least all the relevant Entity types, Attribute types, property types and transaction products.
(Derived fact types with Derived Fact Specifications are welcome, but not mandatory.)
- You modelled an AM: An ARS of the request and declare transaction step of at least one relevant transaction. (This does not count towards the word limit)
For EA-users: You can save this information as a note in the PSD.
- The models should be self-explanatory. Nevertheless, you can add further reasoning about modelling choices with a total of 250 words.
We appoint 10 points for orally explaining why you have made these modelling choices for the As-Is situation.
We appoint 20 points for the description of the To-Be situation of the organisation chosen by the candidate. This description consists of:
- Correct DEMO models of the To-Be situation
- These models should also be self-explanatory. Nevertheless, you can add further reasoning about modelling choices with a total of 250 words.
We appoint 20 points for orally answering questions about the models of the To-Be situation, e.g.:
- How have the models of the To-Be situation been created?
- Why have you made these modelling choices? E.g. changes in the DEMO aspect models, or not at all (because of implementation). .
- What is the durability of the model?
- What is the expected impact on the organisation?
- Which different implementations did you consider?
We appoint 10 points for orally answering theory questions about the As-Is or To-Be models, e.g.
- double executor role in CSD;
- roles in OCD implementation-dependent (e.g. functionary type, such as “account manager”);
- “repeating until acceptance” according to PSI theory;
- revoke patterns needed here;
- informa transactions do (not) exist & why;
- unicity of product kinds;
- You will deliver all prepared documents (descriptions and models) in pdf or the standard (Open or MS) Office formats at least 2 working days prior to the exam date.
- Next to that, the candidate may deliver models in specific tool formats, such as an EAPX file (Sparx Enterprise Architect/Plena).
- The exam is an open book, all notes exam.
