This training course teaches business and system analysts how to produce a detailed outside-in model of computer system requirements using use cases within the context of a model-driven software development process. A strict best practice approach to writing effective use cases ensures that the results satisfy the needs of both non-technical and technical stakeholders. The gains that defining requirements with use cases brings to estimation, traceability, test development and management is discussed. Understanding is tested with exercises based on a real-world project example either using a suitable use case modelling tool or on paper.
Business Analysts, System Analysts, Requirements Gatherers, 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 limited to 12 students. Courses start at 9.00am 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 use case 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 use case 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.
