The requirements dont talk about insufficient mileage availability. Is it assumed that mileage would always be available & sufficient for the booking?

This is one of those cases where you make your assumption and document it. I made the assumption that the system checked mileage availability and reduced the amount of available mileage by the applicable amount. If not enough mileage was available, the system returned a failure condition. This is not something in the requirements I had, but was an assumption that i made. In terms of the material produced, it only amounted to a condition statement on a sequence diagram.

Thanks Matt. That assumption sounds reasonable.

Thanks Matt .Seems I am on the right track in making assumptions.
I made the same assumption but I was not clear what kinda of assumptions are correct etc. Clears my doubts too.

Thanks
