Police Ticket Processing System Description

Police Ticket Processing System Description

Introduction

Imagine that you are the Systems Engineer hired to develop a new Police Ticket Processing System (PTPS). You have two (2) primary tasks. Expectations are that you will 1) Create an initial RTVM based on the information Description provided below and 2) Based on the RTVM, with appropriate categories listed, create a Top Level Functional Architecture for the PTPS. You will be paid handsomely for this effort. Note that you only the “Information Description” provided below. You must make Assumptions if any information is not clear and act on those Assumptions.

Informational Description

1.0 Purpose

The purpose of the Police Ticket Processing System (PTPS) is to record driver violations. For such violations where a driver pleads guilty, the system must keep records of fines paid by the driver. If a driver does not plead guilty yet is found guilty of a moving violation by a court, that find must also be recorded. A fine that is levied but not paid in a timely manner will trigger the PTPS to notify the court to issue an arrest warrant. A second separate Police Patrol System (PPS) records accidents and verification of insurance. A third Driving Record Reports (DRR) system produces driving record reports from issued tickets and accident records for insurance company use. A fourth Driver License System (DLS) issues, renews, or suspends driver licenses.

These four (4) identified systems are integrated to a level where they share access to the same database, but otherwise they are operated separately by different departments. For the purposes of your work, no other Police operations or systems are to be considered.

2.0 Data 

The PTPS maintains Driver Data, Ticket Data, Officer Data and Court Data. Driver Data, Officer Data, and Court Data are used by the system. The system creates and maintains Ticket Data. Driver Data attributes include license number, name, address, date of birth, date licensed, and so on. Ticket Data attributes include ticket number (each is unique and preprinted on each sheet of the officer’s ticket book), location, ticket type, ticket date, ticket time, plea, trial date, verdict, fine amount, and date paid. Court and officer data include the name and address of each, respectively. Each driver may have zero or more tickets, and each ticket applies to only one driver. Officers write many tickets.

3.0 Scenario

When an officer issues a ticket to a driver, a copy of the ticket goes to the driver and a copy of the ticket is also turned in and entered into the system by a Clerk. The PTPS creates a new ticket record. Relationships to the driver, officer, and court are established in the database. A letter and preprinted envelope are mailed to the driver. If the driver pleads guilty, the driver mails in the fine in the preprinted envelope with the ticket number on it. If an envelope is returned without a check and the trial request box has an “X” in it, the system notes the plea on the ticket record; the system looks up driver, ticket, and officer information then sends a ticket details report to the court. A trial date questionnaire form is also produced at the same time and is mailed to the driver. The instructions on the questionnaire tell the driver to fill in convenient dates and mail the questionnaire directly to the court. Upon receiving this information, the court schedules a trial date and notifies the driver of the date and time.

When the trial is completed, the court sends the verdict to the PTPS. The verdict and trial date are recorded for the ticket. If the verdict is innocent, the system that produces driving record reports to insurance companies sends a letter with instructions to ignore the ticket. If the verdict is guilty, the court gives the driver another envelope with the ticket number on it for mailing in the fine.

If the driver fails to pay the fine within the required period, the ticket processing system produces a warrant request notice and sends it to the court. This happens if the driver does not return the original envelope within two weeks or does not return the court supplied envelope within two weeks of the trial date. What happens then is in the hands of the court. Sometimes the court requests that the driver’s license be suspended, and the system that processes drivers’ licenses handles the suspension

 

Question: Consider the problem description presented above.

Using analysis, first develop an RTVM then, based on that RTVM, draw and embed “System Context Diagram” below. (hint: think Top-Level Functional System Architecture Diagram).

a. RTVM that include statement column, Statement type column, Functional Architecture Attributes column, it can be Attribute “n”

b. System Context Diagram. Place your finished System Context Diagram, complete with Top Level Functional System Elements, here.

c. Based on your RTVM and your response to the System Context Diagram, please highlight answers to these questions: 

-What external interfaces provide inputs to the PTPS?

-What major internal PTPS functions are required to process inputs and turn them into outputs?

-What data does the PTPS store in the database?

-Given the internal major functions and required processing, what are the major internal interfaces that must flow between the internal major functions to make the system work?

-What outputs are provided by the PTPS to external systems?

-What are those external systems?

Provide a 50-75 word discussion reply to the following post below.

  • How much money do you spend on energy each month?
    1. Electrical avg: $139
    2. Gas avg: $108
  • In each area listed in this DIY package, what are your findings through the audit? Attach pictures to show problems you found in your home audit. Note: I added the pictures in my initial assignment, but uploading them all felt tedious, so I added my original assignment as an attachment.
    1. Air leaks
      1. While no significant air leaks appear to be present, a change in temperature was felt within the hearth of the fireplace and sunlight could be seen along the bottom of the front entrance door.
    2. Ventilation
      1. Most ventilation ports exit through our ceilings/roofs, minimizing their proximity and the likelihood of suction/discharge interaction.
    3. Insulation
      1. Getting into the attic is difficult, but a panel in our main bathroom closet allows visuals into a lower section of the roof/attic area and some of these checks could be done from there.
        • (picture in attachment)
        • While the roof area is not insulated, the walls along the side do appear to have a fairly thick layer of insulation.
        • (picture in attachment)
        • However, you can see the areas in the back where the upper portions of the insulation strips are beginning to fall.  This will need to either be reaffixed or replaced all together to maximize heating and cooling maintenance of the house.
        • (picture in attachment)
        • One of the roof penetrations. While difficult to see from the camera angle, there is sealant around the pipe where it goes through the perimeter of the house.
      2. Heating/ac
        1. Thermostat
          • Nest Eco
          • (picture in attachment)
          • This was a good assignment, because it gave me extra reason to go downstairs and change my AC filter!
          • (picture in attachment)
          • Our thermostat monitors our electricity use, specifically in regard to our heating and air, and allows us to trend and compare. We can also set hours of operations (which was more useful when we were leaving the house) and temperature bands to maintain.
        2. Water heater
          • Rheem 40 gal natural gas heater
          • https://www.homedepot.com/p/Rheem-Performance-50-Gal-Tall-6-Year-40-000-BTU-Natural-Gas-Tank-Water-Heater-with-Top-T-and-P-Valve-XG50T06TH40U0/307781506?mtc=Shopping-VF-F_D26P-G-D26P-26_10_WATER_HEATERS-Rheem-NA-Feed-PLA-NA-NA-WATER_HEATERS&cm_mmc=Shopping-VF-F_D26P-G-D26P-26_10_WATER_HEATERS-Rheem-NA-Feed-PLA-NA-NA-WATER_HEATERS-71700000033150354-58700003868932471-92700031086650213&gclsrc=aw.ds&&gclid=CjwKCAjwjqT5BRAPEiwAJlBuBfXMGcCtC9RJGksjGZ68hLysymENXi1adOywFTLnp7kXV0ZrUyw92BoC-Y4QAvD_BwE
          • Eco-friendly burner, low NOx design
  • AC unit
    • Goodman 2.5 ton air handler
      • (picture in attachment)
      • (picture in attachment)
      • This is probably the piece of equipment that needs the most urgent repair or replacement. Leaks and insulation were added prior to our purchase of the house.  No significant issues have been noted (although we’ve had maintenance people come out a couple of times to unfreeze the fan outside), but the age and condition will definitely affect our efficiency and bill.
  1. Lighting
    1. We’ve been in our house for just shy of 4 years and have slowly replaced regular incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent and then LED bulbs. We’ve recently been looking into Phillips smart bulb technology, but haven’t taken that leap yet.
  2. Appliances
    1. Fridge:
    2. Washer/Dryer
      • Whirlpool Duet: high efficiency
      • These were purchased in our previous house, but are less than 10 years old and more efficient than the set in our old house and the set that came with this house.
  • Unplugging appliances that are not in use is a habit that I’ve attempted to initiate but has never held. I recognize this as a relatively simple change to implement, and hope to make it a more regular part of my energy consumption reduction in the future.
  • Where are your greatest energy losses? And what is your plan to fix it?
    1. The greatest energy losses, I assume, are through air conditioning. My husband works from home and had a large electronic set up in his office.  This heats up the office considerably and requires extra work by the unit to maintain that room at the desired house temperature.  This also tends to make the rest of the house colder than necessary.  Our current plans for this include a second thermometer attached to the thermostat, hopefully to allow a better maintenance of overall temperatures and not focus directly on the office.  Also, the eventual upgrade of that unit (as it appears to be an older version and likely less efficient) with integration into the smart system, will contribute as well.
  • How long will it take for an investment in energy efficiency to pay for itself in energy cost savings?
    1. This depends on the investment made, it’s cost and how much it increases efficiency compared to the previous equipment. Newer models of furnaces boast a 96% efficiency rate.  Compared to older models that had originally been 80%, a 16% efficiency increase would mean a 16% decrease in energy usage.  If this is put towards our air system (assuming the majority of the electrical bill comes from this), we could see a decrease in $22 per month, saving $264 per year.  It would take about 15 years for that to add up to the ~$3500 it would take to replace the furnace and AC system.  This is similar to the payoff described by the solar panel installation and payoff on EnergySage estimates.
  • Do the energy-saving measures provide additional benefits that are important to you? For example, increased comfort from installing double-paned, efficient windows?
    1. Increased comfort is a nice benefit of energy saving and efficiency, and in my home specifically, I feel there is a desire to make it the most desirable place to be. However, I feel like the additional benefit of just knowing that I’m reducing fuel use (even just as one person) gives me joy and encourages me to work to further this work more than comfort.  As someone with hopes to work in environmental policy and potentially renewables, incorporating it in my everyday life as much as possible feels natural and necessary.
