The course Requirements with Use Cases focuses on Use Case modeling. Use Cases are a widely used analysis technique for specifying the functional requirements of a software system and providing a framework for test case development.
The course Requirements with Use Cases starts with a discussion of the different types of requirements such as functional and non-functional requirements.
Next attention is paid to the creation of Use Cases that describe the typical use of a system by external actors. Use Cases are used in communication with stakeholders and to gain insight into the size, complexity and interaction with the system.
Then Use Case Modelling is covered. Not only the description of the Use Cases in a textual document is discussed, but also the visualization of the Use Cases in a Use Case diagram. Attention is also paid to the structuring of the Use Cases through reuse via includes, via extends and via generalizations.
The course Requirements with Use Case shows how a Use Case can be accurately described in a number of steps on the basis of a Use Case template. The focus is mainly on the success scenario but also important secondary scenarios should be specified.
More advanced techniques in Use Case Modeling are also treated such as using Activity Diagrams with guards, branching Use Cases and using iterations.
The course Requirements with Use Cases ends with a focus on Use Cases in the context of prototypes, the interfaces of the system and the test plan.
The course Requirements with Use Cases is intended for system analysts and developers who want to learn how the functional requirements of systems can be specified with Use Cases.
There are no specific prerequisites for the course Requirements with Use Cases. General knowledge of system development is desirable for a proper understanding.
The theory is presented in the form of presentation slides. Brief case studies are used to practice the techniques. Demo projects clarify the discussed concepts. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.
Participants receive an official certificate Requirements with Use Cases after successful completion of the course.

All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.
We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.
The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.
We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.
Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.
The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.
The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.
At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.
