Systems Modelling Techniques

Course Code: SSMT

Duration: 3 days

 
 

(Course includes examination fee)

Course Overview

The Systems Modelling Techniques course provides delegates with a proven set of modelling techniques to use when specifying IT systems. It uses selected models from the UML (Unified Modelling Language), which has become a standard for systems specification. Key areas of the course include:

  • Use case diagrams
  • Use case descriptions
  • Analysis class diagrams
  • Interaction diagrams
  • Activity diagrams
  • State machines

Combined with Systems Development Essentials this module provides participants with a complete systems analysis course.

Course Content

Systems modelling

  • The importance of modelling and modelling standards
  • Models of the Unified Modeling Language (UML)
  • Interaction of selected UML models

Modelling functionality

  • Use cases diagrams
  • Actors and the system boundary
  • Modelling functional scope
  • Use case descriptions - structure and contents
  • Use case descriptions - defining the main and alternative flows
  • The <<include>> and <<extend>> constructs
  • Activity diagrams - notation
  • Using activity diagrams to model use case descriptions
  • Using activity diagrams to model processing

Static data modelling

  • Objects and classes
  • Class diagrams and object diagrams
  • Representing classes - name, attributes and operations
  • Defining attributes - adornments
  • Abstraction and Encapsulation
  • Associations - structural, association and aggregation
  • Defining multiplicities
  • Generalisation and inheritance
  • Understanding polymorphism
Dynamic modelling
  • Cross-referencing models with CRUD
  • State machine diagrams modelling object lifecycles
  • Realising use cases with interaction models
  • Sequence and communication diagrams
  • Interaction fragments, including opt, alt and loop
  • How interaction models populate class operations during design
Modelling in context
  • Phases and workflows of the Unified Process
  • Models in the Unified Process
  • The bridge to design, software package selection and development

BCS qualification

This course prepares participants to sit a one-hour, open book, examination leading to the certificate in Systems Modelling Techniques offered by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. This certificate is a core certificate in the BCS Diploma in Solution Development and is also a specialist practitioner certificate in the BCS Diploma in Business Analysis.
