Posts Tagged ‘Edge Case’

Use-cases lying on the edge of system scope and occurring infrequently are usually the ones that get overlooked in gathering requirements and, often, also the ones to trip systems.

This could be a case in point:

Bollywood actor-director Rahul Bose recently shared a video of an incident on his Twitter page.

In the video, Bose can be heard saying,So I’m shooting in Chandigarh and I’m staying in this beautiful suite at the JW Mariott, where they give you all these elegant freebies like these chocolate cookies and God knows how much these flowers must have cost. But get this – I was in the gym and I asked for two bananas while I was working out and, of course, I got the bananas. Check the bill out. They’re just too good for me. Well done, JW Marriott Chandigarh.” The bill mentioned Bose’s order as ‘Fruit Platter’, which was shown to have a price of INR 375. Added to that was the GST, which brought the price of the bananas to a total of INR 442.50…

To get the perspective, the farmer from the village might have sold it for less than INR 1 each.

Could be, as pointed out by some, the guy at the other end had no way of entering into his system an order for just two banana’s? He merely selected one of those available items on the menu? Sounds plausible.

The hotel had not reacted so far.

While the opening remarks on the edge cases are generally true, in India they may not be so infrequent and hence may need more attention.
