  2. Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML


    The Object-Oriented Analysis and Design Using UML course provides instruction and practical experience focusing on the effective use of object-oriented technologies and the judicious use of software modeling as applied to a software development process. This instructor-led course uses lecture, group discussions, and facilitator-led activities to present one practical, complete, object-oriented analysis and design (OOAD) road map from requirements gathering to system design.

    The course provides a pragmatic approach to object-oriented (OO) software development following proven OO technologies, principles, and patterns as applicable to OO languages such as .NET, the Java(TM) programming language. Delegates experience the benefits of using the widely adopted graphical modeling language¯the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to help in communicating concepts and decisions, understanding the problem and proposed solution, and managing complexity of the artifacts describing the problem and proposed solution. The course is structured to follow a generic form of software development process that focuses on the analysis and design aspects as applicable to an OO software project. This generic process can be easily adapted to specific processes, which are discussed later in the course. The course also provides an understanding of patterns and frameworks that can facilitate the building of more flexible and re-usable software components.


    Delegates will learn how to

    • Describe the object-oriented software development process, including object-oriented methodologies and workflows
    • Gather system requirements through interviews with stakeholders
    • Analyze system requirements to determine the use cases and domain model of the problem domain (the Requirements model)
    • Create a system architecture (the Architecture model) supporting the nonfunctional requirements (NFRs) and development constraints
    • Create a system design (the Solution model) supporting the functional requirements (FRs)
