This UML training course is aimed at system analysts and developers who want to produce a detailed outside-in model of computer system requirements using use cases and a detailed object oriented implementation-free analysis model of a computer system from the system requirements. The strict approach to writing effective use cases ensures that the results satisfy the needs of both non-technical and technical stakeholders. Industry best practice system modelling techniques are based on the Unified Modelling Language v2.5 and are taught within the context of a model-driven development process.
The models produced are sufficiently detailed to form the basis for the design of systems using a variety of different architectures. The advantages that using these techniques has for estimation, traceability, test development and project management is discussed. Each technique is taught to the level required for competence on a real project. Understanding is tested with exercises based on a real-world project example either using Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, another suitable UML modelling tool or on paper.
Business Analysts, System Analysts, Requirements Gatherers, Solution Architects, System Architects, Developers and Project Managers with at least 2 years experience. This course is not suitable for those seeking certification as a step towards a qualification. See the Certification Policy for a detailed discussion.
Course attendance is normally limited to 12 students. Courses start at 9.30am on the first day, 9.00am on subsequent days and finish at 5.00pm each day. Students normally use a computer for the exercises, but these can be performed on paper if required. For a discussion on using a UML modelling tool please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. Printed course manuals for each student with copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions are provided.
The client is expected to provide an appropriate venue, refreshments, XGA/WXGA projector and screen, whiteboard or flipchart and at least one computer per two students loaded with a suitable UML modelling tool, unless exercises are to be performed on paper. For a full discussion of on-site course issues please see On-Site Course Logistics.
CRaG Systems no longer provide scheduled public training. However, we continue to provide on-site (in-house) training for any number of students with special discounts for small classes. You will find our pricing competitive with most public courses for just 2 or 3 students. Please use the On-Site Course Pricing page to get a firm, downloadable quotation for on-site training.
