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 either using Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, another suitable UML modelling tool or on paper.
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.
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.
