This course explores how to analyse and capture details of Use Cases in EA using Structured Scenarios, which make structuring your Use Cases simple and fast.

With examples and exercises to reinforce the concepts.
Topic Details


Mandatory on all courses. Just introduces the course and the approach

What is a Use Case?

Putting UCs in context: relationship to User Stories, Scenarios, Task Analysis

Getting to the Goal

Expected and Alternate paths, and Exceptions. How much detail is enough? Partly and fully dressed UCs. Granularity

Adding Detail

Actor inheritance, Includes and Extends,  Dealing with time,  Use Cases and Test Cases

Modelling Use Cases in EA

Using the results of the exercises completed in the morning, we will explore how Use Cases are implemented in EA, model our UCs and discover hints and tips to make our analysis clear. (NB this session assumes delegates already have some familiarity with the Enterprise Architect UI and navigation)
