Assignment Part 1 Details - Class Design

This assignment will test your skills in designing and programming applications to specification and is worth
20% of your non-invigilated (type A) marks for this course. This is an INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT – and while
you may discuss it with your fellow students, you must not share designs or code or you will be in breach of
the university plagiarism rules. This assignment should take you approximately 20 hours to complete.
Assignment Overview
You are tasked with creating a text-based program for simulating a supermarket self-service checkout using
the Python 3 programming language.
The assignment is broken up into four main
components:


1.) Design and model two classes: Product
and CheckoutRegister,
2.) Create an activity chart which describes
the behaviour of the checkout system,
3.) Create a computer program that allows
a user to interactively check out a
number of products, then provides an
opportunity to enter some virtual money to pay for the products and finally and prints out a receipt for
the user (to the screen, not on paper), and finally
4.) Explain and integrate some code into your checkout program that places the products purchased into
virtual shopping bags.


Your submission should consist of one Microsoft Word or LibreOffice document containing the first two parts
of the assignment, and three Python scripts that implement the computer program (checkoutregister.py,
product.py and main.py).
The main.py script runs the main logic of the program and will use instances of the CheckoutRegister and
Product classes to simulate checking out of the supermarket.
You are provided with a Microsoft Word template to help you complete the first two parts of this assignment.
Towards the end of this document you will also be provided with the output of a simulated run of the completed
computer program which may help you with this assignment.

Assignment Part 1 Details – Class Design
Think of a product that you can buy from a supermarket, like maybe a can of soup or an apple.
Start by listing all the properties of that object that you can think of – try to come up with at least ten general
properties of a Product and write these down in your Assignment_Part_1_<YOUR_STUDENT_ID> Microsoft
Word document.
Next, use the process of abstraction to cut the number of properties back to only four ‘key’ properties – write
these down in the next section of your Word document. Take a look at the week 2 lecture slides if you need a
reminder on how to go about this.


Now, fill in the class diagram for your Product class in the Word document template provided. Your product
class does not have to have any methods (i.e. functions) associated with it to perform any actions other than a
constructor which takes and set the four key properties that you’ve identified.
Next we’ll move on to CheckoutRegister class – think about what information the checkout has to keep track
of to allow you to successfully check out of the supermarket. There will only really be three key properties that
the CheckoutRegister cares about, and the CheckoutRegister class should have the following four methods
available:

Insert your list/table of possible product properties here…


1) A default constructor that takes no arguments and initialises a new object and its properties,
2) accept_payment(some_amount),
3) scan_item(some_product), and
4) print_receipt().
Fill in the class diagram for the CheckoutRegister class in the Word template, and that’s the first part completed!
Assignment Part 2 Details – Activity Flowchart
Using either the online website or the applications Visio or Powerpoint – create an
activity diagram of how the program should operate to successfully scan one or more products, accept payment,
provide change and print a receipt for the user.
Make sure to use the correct symbols in your diagram for starting, processes, decisions/branches, and ending
the process.


Although you should be familiar with how a self-checkout works, if not then you can always go to a local
supermarket with a self-checkout and buy a packet of chewing gum or something – or take a look at a YouTube
video of self-service checkout, such as this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hoyqVvHaL4s.
Don’t worry about loyalty/rewards cards to taking payment through debit or credit cards, our CheckoutRegister
will only accept cash – although you can enter multiple denominations via multiple calls to the
accept_money(some_amount) method. For example, calling accept_money(5.0) and then accept_money(2.0)
will mean that the CheckoutRegister knows that you have entered a total of $7.00. Also note that you can start
the entire checkout process off by simply scanning a product.
Once you have completed your activity flowchart, add it to your assignment template document.

Assignment Part 3 Details – Software Implementation
You are free to implement the software however you see fit, however the functionality of the software should
be able to match the following output. Note that in the below run of the program I have ‘hard-coded’ a small
number of Product instances so that products exist which can they can be checked out – in your code you should
do the same.
Your program does not have to have the facility to add new products – just define a few and use them as
demonstrated below. If the final option of (N)ext customer is chosen, the program should run again

Part 4 – Code Explanation and Use
You are provided with the following two functions which you should
1. Analyse to determine what they do & provide documentation comments for, and
2. Incorporate into your final program solution.
Wherever there is a # followed by some underscores in the code below, you should write a short comment
explaining what the below section of code is doing, and if there is space why it is doing it. Do part 1 of the
above in the provided assignment 1 template document, rather than here!

iv)   Allows the checkout of multiple products,

vi)   Prints a final receipt of the products purchased, along with the total cost, total paid and any change given.
