Please, is there a systematic way to analyse a dataset for phontactic constraints?

I have an assignment due tomorrow and feel like the analysis I'm doing is a bit random. How can I be sure I haven't missed anything? It's an Australian Indigenous language and Arabic. We need to describe syllable structure, constraints within the syllable, constraints across syllable boundaries and phonological changes. Any tips and tricks most welcome. Thank you
