System Requirements Definition Using Use Cases Training Course - 1 Day

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.

Delegates will learn
  • How to create a first cut overview of functional requirements with actors and use cases on a use case diagram
  • How to write an effective use case description in a way that satisfies both non-technical and technical stakeholders
  • How to specify the flow of events as a basic flow and alternate flows
  • How to restructure the use case diagram to handle complex relationships between use cases without bloating the use case model
  • How to integrate the use case model with non-functional requirements, data requirements, business rules and screen prototyping
  • How a use case driven approach to requirements gathering improves estimation, project planning, test development and traceability
