Object-Oriented Analysis and Design using UML
This course is intended for analysts, designers, developers, testers and project managers. It is an introduction to system modeling using UML.
Based on selected systems (case study) following phases of system modeling are presented: from modeling requirements, through business process modeling and documentation of functional and non-functional requirements, to the analytical model. The next step is the design phase - static and dynamic modeling using project classes and the interaction between the system components.
Training can be the basis for a comprehensive process modeling in enterprise systems through the use of UML in all phases of software development.
