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 Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect or another suitable use case modelling tool.
Business Analysts, System Analysts, Requirements Gatherers, Solution Architects, System Architects, 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.
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.
