In order to communicate system requirements clearly and accurately to both business and IT stakeholders, it is vital for analysts and designers to be able to construct models from a variety of perspectives. In most cases these models will provide the basis for more detailed design.
The starting point for this course is a set of requirements, as defined in the Systems Development Essentials course. It is primarily concerned with modelling systems using UML techniques. It requires delegates to construct four main types of model reflecting different perspectives and to describe the interactions between them.
At the end of the course delegates may sit an examination to attain the BCS Business Systems Development certificate in Systems Modelling Techniques. (These delegates should also book on course code SMTUEX-1). This course may be taken as part of the programme leading to the BCS Diploma in Systems Development.
This is an intensive four day course that places emphasis on the practical application of the modelling techniques covered. Delegates participate in exercises, and case study tasks.
Delegates will learn how to:
- Justify the need for modelling and modelling techniques
- Explain why it is important to model system requirements from different perspectives and identify specific modelling techniques
- Construct a static structure model (class diagram)
- Construct a process model (activity diagram)
- Construct a simple dynamic event driven model (statechart)
- Evaluate how the various models reflect business objectives and system requirements (via critical success factors)
- Appreciate how the various perspectives inter-relate to each other.
