UML Use Cases for Requirements Analysis

This course is aimed at requirements engineers and business analysts who wish to create use case models to capture end user requirements and demonstrate traceability. Practical exercises help to reinforce the theory.
Duration: 1 day
Prerequisites: No prior UML experience is required.
A background in requirements analysis is helpful.
Equipment: For on-site course delivery the customer should provide a suitable training room with a projector to connect to our trainer's laptop and a whiteboard or flipchart. All exercises are completed on paper therefore no PCs or laptops are required.

For webinar training sessions delegates need access to a PC or laptop with Internet connection and VoIP (a headset can be helpful for privacy in an office environment).

Course Style: 45% theory, 55% practical.
Each module is accompanied by targeted exercises to allow delegates to apply the theory and become confident with new concepts and notation.
Delegate Handouts: Each delegate receives a folder containing all the course slides and comprehensive theory notes which form excellent reference material. Folders also contain exercises and suggested solutions. Following successful completion of the course each delegate receives a certificate.
Module Key: Teaches concepts and notation
