The workshop teaches the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and an understanding of the Unified Process and how to incorporate them into a repeatable development process at your organization. The seminar teaches and provides exercises in modeling techniques used for project planning, scoping, requirements gathering and design for object-oriented development projects.

Detailed Description

The Learning Use Cases & UML Techniques Seminar provides training in the methodology needed for capturing and modeling the artifacts for Object-Oriented and Legacy System development. The class provides a life cycle and techniques used for IT process improvement using use cases and the Unified Modeling Language (UML). The seminar focus is on how to:

  • Write use cases and build requirements and design models using the Unified Modeling Language
  • Implement a repeatable process for project initiation, requirements definition, analysis and design

The objectives of the seminar are to:

  • Provide an understanding of the Software Life Cycle, methodology steps and artifacts needed for Object-Oriented Development Projects
  • Provide practical group exercises for building UML artifacts using the UML notations
  • Define the Rapid Application Development Process, describe spiral vs. waterfall method, success factors and how to plan projects using an iterative and incremental approach

    Session 2 (1:00 pm – 5:00pm Eastern Time)

    Analysis & Design Methodology Steps and Artifacts

    • Principles and Terminology for the Analysis & Design Phase of the Project Life Cycle
    • Writing System Use Cases for development
    1. Guidelines and templates for writing System Use Cases
    2. Building prototypes
    • Case Study Exercise- Writing System Use Cases and building prototypes for the Analysis/Design Phase
    • Constructing the State Diagram and Sequence Diagram using UML
    • Case Study Exercise- Building the State Diagram and Sequence Diagram using UML

    UML Process Simulation

    The UML simulation demonstrates how the entire life cycle of a project fits together and how the artifacts taught in class build on each other. Each student leads the group in a stage of the life cycle using the scoping, requirements analysis, analysis and design artifacts. Visio’s Profession Version UML tools are used in the simulation.
