This UML training course is aimed at system architects, analyst/programmers and developers who want to define detailed outside-in system requirements using use cases, a detailed implementation-free model of the system from those requirements and a layered, component-based, model of system architecture and design in order to maximise the maintainability, re-use and extensibility of the resulting code. The industry best practice modelling techniques are based on the Unified Modelling Language v2.5 and are taught within the context of a model-driven software development process.
The modelling employed is applicable to a wide variety of technologies, sufficiently detailed for code generation and traceable from requirements through to code. The advantages that using these techniques has for estimation, test development and 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 using either Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect or another suitable UML modelling tool.
System Architects, System Designers, Developers and Analyst/Programmers with at least 2 years experience, preferably in a modern object-oriented language. This course is not suitable for those seeking certification as a step towards a qualification. See the Certification Policy for a detailed discussion.
Courses normally start at 9.30am on the first day, 9.00am on subsequent days and finish at 5.00pm each day with an hour for lunch and a 15 minute break in the morning and again in the afternoon. Course attendance is normally limited to 12 students.
The client is expected to provide an appropriate venue, refreshments, high resolution projector or large screen, whiteboard or flipchart and at least one computer per two students loaded with at least the evaluation version of Enterprise Architect or another suitable modelling tool. For a discussion of the use of modelling tools, please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. A printed course manual with copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions will be provided for each student. For a full discussion of on-site course logistics please see On-Site Course and Workshop Logistics.
The client is expected to provide an appropriate conferencing service that allows the instructor to join the online meeting, share their screen, talk to each and every student on the course and view their screen if necessary to support their individual modelling work. They should also provide a computer for each student loaded with at least the evaluation version of Enterprise Architect or another suitable modelling tool. For a discussion of the use of modelling tools, please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. Copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions will be provided electronically. For a full discussion of remote course logistics please see Remote Course and Workshop Logistics.
