Requirements Requirements

Basic knowledge of the concepts of object-oriented programming and UML.

Overview Overview

The course is designed for analysts, designers, developers, testers and project managers.

The workshop presents a problem analysis, design and documentation systems using UML and Enterprise Architect of Sparx Systems. During the training will be presented to the advanced capabilities of the program (such as MDA, profiles, XMI), and best practices that can greatly simplify and accelerate modeling.

The training method:

Lecture 10%, 90% workshop
