System Architecture and Design using UML Training Course - 2 Days

This UML training course is aimed at system architects and developers who want to create 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 well defined model-driven software development process. The modelling employed is applicable to a wide variety of technologies and sufficiently detailed for code generation. 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.

Delegates will learn:
  • The necessary detail of the Unified Modelling Language
  • The detail of an object oriented approach - OOD
  • How to develop a flexible system architecture from a UML based system analysis model
  • How to develop component and deployment models for the system
  • How to model the design of a component using sub-systems and interfaces
  • How to build libraries of re-useable classes using generalisation and inheritance
  • How to model the use of technology and frameworks as series of design patterns
  • How to integrate libraries and frameworks into the design of components
  • How to generate frame code and keep the design and code models synchronised
  • How to architect, design, build, test and deliver components as part of an incremental model-driven development process
Suitable for:
Suitable for

System Architects, System Designers, Developers and 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.
