Business Use Case Diagram
  • Purpose
    • Present the Big Picture of workflow
    • Divide the workflow as smaller units(Divide & Conquer Technique)

Business Use Case Diagram
  • Case Study
    • “Mr. Delay Software Company”
    • Core Business
      • Accept the requests of customized software projects from customers
    • Problems
      • Lack of better & faster way to accept the requests from customers, dispatch tasks, and monitor the status
    • Expectations
      • A project managing system, which is a web-based system that can accept the request from Internet, manage the tasks, and check status any time.

Business Use Case Diagram
  • Interview with the Stakeholders
    • Customer will call Project Manager to request a new project
    • Project Manager will create the project, and the tasks list of the project.
    • Then project manager will schedule the tasks and assign proper workers to finish the tasks of project
    • The workers should report the status to project manager.

conceptual models
Conceptual Models
  • What is “Conceptual Models”
    • The model that illustrates meaningful concepts in a problem domain.
    • Provide a model to understand the problem domain quickly and easily
conceptual models28
Conceptual Models
  • Purpose
    • Provide a quick understand of the objects in the system
  • Note
    • Conceptual Model is a set of static structure diagrams in which no operations are defined
    • Conceptual Model is not formal constructive models
    • Conceptual Models can be done by Flow Analyst or System Analyst
    • Conceptual Model is not always required in developing cycle, it only needs when the concepts in the system are complex
