This UML training course is aimed at solution architects who want to define an outside-in view of system requirements, a model of the system data, structure and functionality and a component-based model of expected system architecture. The industry best practice modelling techniques are based on the Unified Modelling Language v2.5 and are taught within the context of a model-driven software development process. The modelling employed is applicable to a wide variety of technologies and traceable from requirements through to code.
The advantages that using these techniques has for estimation, test development and management is discussed. Each technique is taught to the level required for competence on a real project. Understanding is tested with exercises based on a real-world project example either using Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect, another suitable UML modelling tool or on paper.
Solution Architects, System Analysts, System Architects, Developers and Analyst/Programmers with at least 2 years experience. This course is not suitable for those seeking certification as a step towards a qualification. See the Certification Policy for a detailed discussion.
Course attendance is normally limited to 12 students. Courses start at 9.30am on the first day, 9.00am on subsequent days and finish at 5.00pm each day. Students normally use a computer for the exercises, but these can be performed on paper if required. For a discussion on using a UML modelling tool please see Modelling Tool Use on Courses. Printed course manuals for each student with copies of all presentations, exercises and solutions are provided.
The client is expected to provide an appropriate venue, refreshments, XGA/WXGA projector and screen, whiteboard or flipchart and at least one computer per two students loaded with a suitable UML modelling tool, unless exercises are to be performed on paper. For a full discussion of on-site course issues please see On-Site Course Logistics.
