T3 Course
Object Oriented Analysis and Design using UML

System architects, system engineers, developers and analysts / programmers with at least two years experience, preferably in a modern object-oriented language (Java, C #, Ruby ...).
Course Objectives
This UML course is intended for system architects, analysts / programmers and developers who wish to define system requirements using use cases, object-oriented model released from implementation details and realized from the foregoing requirements and a model of architecture layer, based on components that maximize the maintainability and reuse of existing code. The best modeling techniques are based on the Unified Modeling Language 2.1 and are well rooted in a software development process focused on the (model-driven) paradigm.

Understanding the concepts covered is continually tested and improved through classroom exercises and workshops based on examples from real projects using appropriate CASE tools.

    • Creating a view summarizing the functional requirements by using actors and use cases in use case diagrams.
    • How to effectively describe a system through use cases so that the model may be satisfactory for both technical stakeholders than for non-technical ones.

    • How to generate frame code and maintain design models and code synchronized.
    • How to specify, analyze, design, build, test and release components as part of a process of incremental model-driven development.
    Training method
    Theoretical and practical, or course elements will alternate theoretical illustration of specific cases and demonstration of the UML methodology. Delivery will be based on practical-exercises, for which the exercises will be balanced on the basis of the relevance of the topics covered.
