Writing Effective, Testable Use Cases


AssistKD's Writing Effective, Testable Use Cases course provides delegates with guidance on when use cases should be used, what writing style should be adopted and how supporting use case diagrams should be structured. Key areas covered are: 
  • Initial identification 
  • Different styles of Use Case at varying levels of precision
  • The relationship of use case descriptions to testing 
  • Activity diagrams
  • Realisation of use cases in sequence diagrams
The course is exercise-based, culminating in a significant case study where participants convert unstructured textual requirements into a set of either system or business use cases.
