A specific set of techniques for business-oriented requirements engineering and object modelling will be conveyed. The second day will provide the chance to try out all the techniques in a simulated workshop atmosphere. The participants will build a complete model and prove that its satisfies the business objectives that they discover early on in the workshop. There is a choice between a pre-written problem or a suitable problem pertaining to their own work. All participants will receive a complete set of the visual aids used, supplementary materials and a copy of Ian Graham's book Object-Oriented Methods (Addison-Wesley 2001) which includes extensive coverage of requirements engineering and agile development best practices.
Duration: 3 days
Participants to the Requirements Engineering with UML course will gain a broad understanding of the field and a grasp of the fundamental concepts and terminology. They will also understand the benefits and risks and be able to discuss them in the context of particular projects.
The focus is on effective modelling throughout. Participants will learn how to avoid common pitfalls when using use cases and understand clearly the links between the various UML diagram types.
It is particularly suited for people with an interest in using computer technology to achieve more effective and profitable business solutions; it is also suitable for systems analysts, workshop facilitators, project managers and developers.
