The Object Oriented Analysis & Design course focuses on the fundamental concepts of Object Orientation and UML as part of the Software Development Life Cycle. The course focuses on the core activities and artifacts of Object Orientation and UML when used with various methodologies including XP, Agile and Unified Process. UML 2 notation is used throughout the course.

This hands-on course shows delegates how to analyse and design models of software systems to enable them to develop quality software that meets the requirements of Stakeholders. Delegates will learn how to follow a system through the OO Analysis and Design phases and build models and artifacts to validate and elaborate the design.

A Case Study is used through out the course to give practical hands-on experience with the techniques covered.

UML Modelling Tools are available in the classroom to give delegates experience of using these tools to document analysis and design models.


The delegate will learn and acquire skills as follows:

  • Gathering and documenting Requirements
  • Documenting Requirements with Use Cases
  • Detailing Use Case Flows
  • Designing and Testing Activity Diagrams
  • Identifying Analysis Classes
  • Building Class Models
  • Modelling Relationships between Classes
  • Identifying and Building Generalisation Hierarchies
  • Designing Abstract Classes, Interfaces and Inheritance
  • Modelling System Behaviour
  • Modelling Object State
  • Realising Designs with Interaction Diagrams
  • Designing Packages for Deployment

Target Audience

The Object Oriented Analysis & Design course is aimed at staff and consultants working as part of a development team using OO techniques to develop quality software including Business and System Analysts, Solution Architects, Programmers, Designers, Subject Matter Experts, Project Managers and anyone who needs a good understanding of the use of Object Oriented Analysis and Design within software development.

This course is particularly beneficial for those using Object Oriented development languages such as Java, Python, C++, Visual Basic and Ruby.
