Regional Authorities for Statistics in the Free State of Saxony
Regional Authorities for Statistics in the Free State of Saxony permanently collect, process, analyze and publish data by statutory provision. Data collected are prepared, analyzed and published based on scientific knowledge and with the appropriate methods and techniques.
Apart from regional and federal statistic surveys, Europe-wide statistic surveys are conducted. Based on EU regulations, the European Union decided to perform the “Zensus 2011”, a population and accommodation census, throughout its domain. Germany takes part in form of a register-based census, meaning that already available data are combined with data gathered in new surveys. The Zensus 2011 has two goals, determining the official population of Germany and yielding information on housing space, education and working life. In addition, results from the census are used as a basis for a variety of analyses which in turn will affect infrastructure planning.
V-Modell XT-compliant projects with in-STEP BLUE and objectiF
The V-Modell XT was used as a starting point for a generic project structure plan which includes activities for the development of all required requirements documents and software modules necessary for the prearrangement and realization of the housing space survey contained in Zensus 2011. To chieve this, in-STEP BLUE V-Modell XT Edition was customized to meet the specific demands of this IT project.
objectiF was used to model the functional requirements. Combining the functionalities of both in-STEP BLUE and objectiF makes it possible to organize the elicitation of requirements needed for the requirements specification as an automated process. All necessary use cases, use case diagrams and activity diagrams are created in objectiF and processed in in-STEP BLUE via interface.
The organization and controlling of tasks within the project is handled by in-STEP BLUE and objectiF since 2009, with a focus on
- Project Management (specifically for determining individual project steps)
- Configuration Management (specifically for organizing a product library for versioning)
- Automatic generation of requirement specifications
