Insurance Policy Administration System: ACME Abstract ACME plans a system overhaul by integrating their old system into a new system using OO Technology. Therefore, this paper highlights a UML class model for ACME proposed system. In this regard, factual and usability comparison between the UML class model and the entity relationship model is discussed. In addition, the paper outlines a suitability comparison between the two models; thereafter, a model meeting the Case Study's requirement is picked from the two contrasted models. System Model for ACME Given the system upgrade initiated by ACME, it is proposed that the using a UML class model is likely to help in designing the policy administration system. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is a design tool usually useful in Object Oriented Software Engineering (OOSE) and encompasses a set of graphic notation techniques to create visual models of the system. The UML class diagram is a vital database modeling technique showing the types of objects in the system and various kinds of static relationships existing between them (Ambler, 2004). In the proposed model for ACME, there are three important relationships that are highlighted; associations, where a customer receives many quotations; subtypes, the sales representative is a kind of person and aggregation which upholds that the quotation is part of the policy contract. For ACME, UML is recommended since it is capable of representing two different views of a system model;
