Mastering Requirements Management with Use Cases provides three days of training in requirements management and use-case modeling techniques. The course focuses on eliciting and managing the changing requirements of a project; analyzing the problem, defining the product vision and feature requirements, defining software requirements with use cases, and requirement attributes, and maintaining traceability, change management, and impact analysis for project scope management. The course shows how use-case modeling and requirements management techniques are used to define and document requirements that meet stakeholder needs. In-class exercises will give students practical experience in developing use cases.
Upon completion of the course, participants should be able to:
- Apply requirements management techniques to define a clear statement of product requirements.
- Capture and document requirements with use-case modeling techniques.
- Develop requirements in an iterative process.
- Describe a documentation hierarchy and standards for defining levels of requirements for a product.
- Use requirement attributes and traceability to help manage scope and change throughout product lifecycle.
- Use requirements to drive ongoing design, test, and user documentation activities.
The course serves two audiences. The primary audience is people who will be actively engaged in the elicitation and definition of software requirements. This includes systems, requirements, and business analysts. The secondary audience would be interested in taking this class because they are consumers of the software requirements and need to understand how to read, verify, interpret and plan with the software requirements of the system. This group includes project managers, software analysts and designers, QA designers and testers, and customers and users.
