  • Page 102: the activity Make payment is not featured in the example in Fig. 3.16.  The text should be: “”Make payment” (not present in Fig. 3.16).” An example of incoming message for this activity would be “Payment details” (received upon activity start), while and example of outgoing message would be “Payment”(sent upon activity completion).

Chapter 8.

  • Solution 8.5 is lacking the answer to the fourth item in Exercise 8.5.
    The missing answer is as follows:
    A robot carries out part of a surgical procedure, in this way replacing an activity that was previously completely carried out by a surgeon.”: Above all, this can lead to an improvement in quality, as the robot is likely to be more accurate and consistent in its interventions. Costs are likely to be higher, at least in the short term, due to the high costs of development and maintenance of such surgical robots. The time of the surgery might be reduced.
