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;
  • …           

General requirements:

  • 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.
