Cade's book has an example where one class was removed from the BDM. Is that ok in the actual assignment?

I'm thinking of removing the Segment and the Equipment classes since they seem like useless intermediate classes. Someone please tell me if what I'm thinking is wrong?

Thanks!

Hello Calen

I am working also on the second part of my certification. regarding your question, I would not recommend to remove them, because they have some business meanings. Segment for instance is used multiple times in the use case descrption. I would recommend to search this forum for some postings regarding "segment" and "equipment". Afterwards I would read some posts regarding "failed part II" to see where other lost important points.

However, if you do so, make sure that the business meanings are not gone away, include them in other classes and make a clear statemnt in your support description. Be aware of that the person who have to value your assignment starts with the BDOM, if this person does not see any more the original classes then you give them already a hint where he has to dig deeper... While I am a teacher I know this rule... ; )

regards
Mark
