Course Description

This workshop uses a case study to help you explore two standard approaches to conceptual modeling: 

the Unified Modeling Language and Information Engineering. It is designed to be prescriptive as well as 

descriptive. This means that best practice will be emphasized through explanation and application. You 

will discover what should be done as well as how to do it, and why. 

 
Discover How To

  • Analyse the requirements and create UML models 
  • Learn the SDLC and / or RUP process 
  • Create Advanced UML models 
  • Bonus: Learn the Object Constraint Language 
  • Create data models 
  • Normalise data models 
  • Write precise use cases 

 
who Should Attend

Business analysts, technical analysts, project managers, and subject matter experts who need to capture, 

document, and communicate well-formed requirements for complex software systems.
