Types of Trees in the SCOPE Model
Building Hierarchy Trees
The four types of Trees in SCOPE
- Function trees display Functions and Processes that can be performed by the software applications. This is where you hierarchically functionally decompose an application’s functionality.
- Data trees display data groups, RETs and DETs. This is where you map out the projects data
- Structures in hierarchical form.
- Attribute trees represent the characteristics of the Functions, Data and Notes and are the conditions that are used for selective analysis.
- Notes trees hold text information related to nodes in the other trees.
Function and Data trees contribute to the functional size; whilst Attribute and Notes trees do not directly contribute, but add valuable documentation and demographic information during profiling and analysis.
