CRaG Systems UML with Enterprise Architect KickStart Model Development Workshops provide focused, intensive workshops that get your project moving immediately. KickStart Hands-On Model Development teaches the concepts of UML modelling by applying the methods directly to your real project using Sparx Systems' Enterprise Architect modelling tool with valuable and practical benefits to your team. UML modelling methods are learned and retained better by the students since it is relevant to the team project, directly applied to the project, and there are no long theory classes before applying the methods. The consultant shows the team how to develop whichever of the views of business process, system requirements, system analysis, system architecture and system design are required for the project.
The model is constructed using Enterprise Architect in a way that follows a well defined Model-Driven Software Development Process, using industry best practice for each part of the model. The consultant teaches the necessary detail of the relevant syntax as the model is developed. Students work either in teams or separately to develop further the models started by the consultant and under his or her guidance. Enterprise Architect and the UML 2.3 notation are used throughout. The models produced are sufficiently detailed to allow the students to complete the models unaided.
Requirements Gatherers, System Analysts, System Architects and Developers with at least 2 years experience. This workshop is not suitable for those seeking certification as a step towards a qualification. See the Certification Policy for a detailed discussion.
Optionally, students may complete the UML Tutorial Introduction on-line course prior to the start of the KickStart training. This will take approximately 2.5 hours and reduces the amount of time spent introducing some of the concepts. If students complete the Specifying Functional Requirements With Use Cases on-line course (approximately 6 hours) also, then the time spent capturing external requirements can also be reduced.
The client is advised to provide adequate documentation regarding the overall project goals and functionality of the project to be modelled, under non-disclosure if necessary, at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the training, if possible. If no project documentation is available, then a stakeholder with a suitable knowledge of the problem domain should be available to take part in the workshop sessions. Stakeholder involvement in problem domain modelling sessions is always encouraged.
Workshops are delivered at the clients' site and attendance is limited to 12 students. Workshops normally start at 9.30am on the first day and 9.00am on subsequent days with an hour for lunch and a 15 minute break in the morning and again the afternoon. Workshops normally finish at 5.00pm each day. The client is expected to provide an appropriate venue, equipment and refreshments. Required equipment includes an XGA/WXGA projector and screen, whiteboard or flipchart and at least one computer per two students loaded with either the evaluation version of Enterprise Architect or a recent licenced copy. For a full discussion of on-site workshop issues please see On-Site Course and Workshop Logistics.
