UMUse case diagrams
Use case diagrams depict:


Use cases. A use case describes a sequence of actions that provide something of measurable value to an actor and is drawn as a horizontal ellipse.



Actors. An actor is a person, organization, or external system that plays a role in one or more interactions with your system. Actors are drawn as stick figures.



Associations. Associations between actors and use cases are indicated in use case diagrams by solid lines. An association exists whenever an actor is involved with an interaction described by a use case. Associations are modeled as lines connecting use cases and actors to one another, with an optional arrowhead on one end of the line. The arrowhead is often used to indicating the direction of the initial invocation of the relationship or to indicate the primary actor within the use case. The arrowheads are typically confused with data flow and as a result I avoid their use.



System boundary boxes (optional). You can draw a rectangle around the use cases, called the system boundary box, to indicates the scope of your system. Anything within the box represents functionality that is in scope and anything outside the box is not. System boundary boxes are rarely used, although on occasion I

have used them to identify which use cases will be delivered in each major release of a system. Figure 2 shows how this could be done.


Packages (optional). Packages are UML constructs that enable you to organize model elements (such as use cases) into groups. Packages are depicted as file folders and can be used on any of the UML diagrams, including both use case diagrams and class diagrams. I use packages only when my diagrams become unwieldy, which generally implies they cannot be printed on a single page, to organize a large diagram into smaller ones. Figure 3 depicts how Figure 1 could be…...

Uml Modeling Language

...Unified Modeling Language (UML) UML stand for Unified Modeling Language and will forever change the world of modeling. UML was introduced more than 10 years ago in 1997 with the combined of three modeling advocates techniques. One of the first to adopt the system was The Object Management Group (OMG), the immediately set the stage for a new world of modeling with UML leading the way. The UML version 1.x was composed of 9 distinct but was break down into three types; they are structural, behavioral, and interaction. Of course no system was prefect there were issues as well that lead to more researches. First of UML is very complex and not users friendly and doubt it’ll get any less according to the article. They required experience user and have to get users to learn it language. (Erickson, J. (2008))   The impact on modeling that UML was seen years later. Now most of the businesses around the world use it in their daily working and communication. The systems on which these businesses run are based on languages, which make the design of these systems easier than it would have been otherwise. System design and engineering complexities are greatly reduced by use of diagrams that convey much more than reams of paper would consume by way of text. Also, these diagrams used in modeling help to design the system faster and quicker. Unified Modeling Language (UML) is now one such Modeling language, used to make designing of systems faster and quicker. The UML is thus a......

Affinity Diagram

...Improvement Module 4 AFFINITY DIAGRAM AFFINITY DIAGRAM 1 Basic Tools for Process Improvement What is an Affinity Diagram? An Affinity Diagram is a tool that gathers large amounts of language data (ideas, opinions, issues) and organizes them into groupings based on their natural relationships (Viewgraph 1). The Affinity process is often used to group ideas generated by Brainstorming. Why should teams use the Affinity process? The Affinity process is a good way to get people to work on a creative level to address difficult issues. It may be used in situations that are unknown or unexplored by a team, or in circumstances that seem confusing or disorganized, such as when people with diverse experiences form a new team, or when members have incomplete knowledge of the area of analysis. When should we use the Affinity process? The Affinity process is formalized in an Affinity Diagram and is useful when you want to (Viewgraph 2)  Sift through large volumes of data. For example, a process owner who is identifying customers and their needs might compile a very large list of unsorted data. In such a case, creating an Affinity Diagram might be helpful for organizing the data into groups. Encourage new patterns of thinking. An Affinity exercise is an excellent way to get a group of people to react on a "gut level" rather than mulling things over intellectually. Since Brainstorming is the first step in making an Affinity Diagram, the team considers all......

Using Uml to Model System

...INTRODUCTION This IDoc describes use of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) to model and document Accounting Information Systems (AIS). The objective of modeling AIS is multifaceted and can be to: visualize, understand, summarize, detail, analyze, design, develop, implement, operate, secure, control, or audit the AIS. UML is a powerful modeling language and technique for all of these modeling tasks and is more robust and semantically superior to the commonly used Structured Analysis (SA) modeling tools of flowcharts (FC), data flow diagrams (DFD), and entity-relationship diagrams (ERD). Dr. White suggests that using UML diagrams as a tool to document AIS is a viable alternative to the Structured Analysis’s diagrams of FC, DFD, and ERD. What follows in Section II is a brief comparison of the two alternative approaches to systems documentation: Structured Analysis (SA) and Object Orientation (OO). Section III presents the definition and description of the major structural and behavioral elements used in UML including classifiers, instances, relationships, collaborations, activities, interactions, and states. Section IV discusses the organization and presentation of UML documentation of AIS as a collection of diagrams and packages. Section V contains various UML diagrams of the business revenue cycle (system) as examples of how to use UML to document a business system. Section VI contains examples of UML models of two special systems of great importance to accountants:......

An Experimental Comparison of Er and Uml Class Diagrams for Data Modelling

...Empir Software Eng (2010) 15:455–492 DOI 10.1007/s10664-009-9127-7 An experimental comparison of ER and UML class diagrams for data modelling Andrea De Lucia · Carmine Gravino · Rocco Oliveto · Genoveffa Tortora Published online: 11 December 2009 © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2009 Editor: Erik Arisholm Abstract We present the results of three sets of controlled experiments aimed at analysing whether UML class diagrams are more comprehensible than ER diagrams during data models maintenance. In particular, we considered the support given by the two notations in the comprehension and interpretation of data models, comprehension of the change to perform to meet a change request, and detection of defects contained in a data model. The experiments involved university students with different levels of ability and experience. The results demonstrate that using UML class diagrams subjects achieved better comprehension levels. With regard to the support given by the two notations during maintenance activities the results demonstrate that the two notations give the same support, while in general UML class diagrams provide a better support with respect to ER diagrams during verification activities.

...A NOTE ON CONSTRUCTING INFLUENCE DIAGRAMS Influence diagrams were devised as a way to graphically depicting the relationship between several elements that can affect the results of a decision. The diagram can be used as a basis for creating computer-based models that describe a system or as descriptions of mental models managers use to assess the impact of their actions, see Senge (4 ). For more information on influence diagrams see Bodily et al (1) ; Bossel(2); or Plane(3). This note explains some of the basics of influence diagrams and how to construct one. Elements of an Influence Diagram A model is a representation of a system. An influence diagram tries to capture this representation in a form that can be communicated to others. For example, managers could construct an influence diagram to explain their understanding of the system to other managers or to people developing the system on the computer. The elements of the influence diagram are (note: the appropriate color when using color graphics is shown under the symbol): Depicts an external influence (an exogenous variable) – these are variables whose values are not affected by the decision being made. For example, inflation rate is an external influence that can impact a company’s sales revenue. Depicts a decision – these are decisions made by the management. Price charged by a company for a unit of a product could be a decision variable. Depicts an...

History of Uml

...known for two of the most popular object-oriented modeling approaches. The first one being Rumbaugh’s object modeling technique and the other being Grady Booch's object oriented design. Next they were assisted by Ivar Jacobson who developed object-oriented software engineering and Jaconson joined Rational shortly. The three of them together at Rational developed the unified method version 0.9 in 1996. The aim is not to create a new series of symbols but to but to adapt, expand, and simplify the existing and widely used object oriented methods. Other well-known companies started to join them to further the development of unified method. In 1997, they developed version 1.0 which was then renamed to unified modeling language (UML) and the latest version UML 2.5 was released in October 2012....

Uml是Unified Modeling Language的簡稱

...UML是Unified Modeling Language的簡稱,中譯為「統一塑模語言」。其中: Unified:UML是一種標準語言,廣泛運用於全世界。 Modeling:UML用途在於塑模(Modeling),也就是畫軟體藍圖。 Language:UML是一種塑模語言,而非程式語言或標示語言。 也就是說,UML是軟體系統發展人員用以建造模型,而這些模型使得工作團隊能夠:將系統具象化(Visualization)、將系統結構及行為規格化(Specification)、建構(Construction)系統、以及記錄(Documentation)發展系統過程中之各項決策。 什麼是塑模? 作曲家會將其腦袋中的旋律譜成樂曲,建築師會將其設計之建築物畫成藍圖,行銷廣告人員會將其創意製作成簡報;這些樂曲、藍圖及簡報就是模型(Model),而建構這些模型的過程就稱為塑模(Modeling)。 軟體開發如同音樂譜曲及建築設計,其過程中也必須將需求、分析、設計、實作、佈署等各項工作流程之構想與結果予以呈現,這就是軟體系統之塑模。 為什麼要塑模? 絕大部份的音樂演奏都需要樂譜(除了少數即性式表演外)! 絕大部份的建築施工都需要藍圖(除非要蓋的是一間狗屋)! 同樣的,所有軟體系統的建構最好都有適當的分析設計藍圖,因為軟體開發的過程絕對不是任意的、隨性的、且戰且走的、天馬行空的。 UML在軟體塑模中所扮演的角色是什麼? 1.軟體發展之方法論中包含了程序(Process)及表示法(Notation)兩個部份,其中: 程序指的是系統開發的流程,例:瀑布模式、漸增模式、擴展模式、雛型模式、螺旋模式等。 2.表示法指的是建構軟體模型中所會用到之符號及規則。 3.UML所涵蓋的內容是表式法而非程序,UML是與程序無關的(Process Independent),也就是說,無論以任何程序來開發軟體系統,都可以使用UML來建構軟體模型。 UML與物件導向方法之關係 1.UML之訂定與物件導向方法的確有非常密切之關係。 2.UML中的各種符號及規則與物件導向語言(Java,C++)之結構有完整對應。 但是,UML絕對不僅限用在物件導向軟體開發,UML中有些概念與圖形甚至可說是與物件導向無關 例:Use Case Diagram及Statechart Diagram 因此,軟體開發時無論是否採用物件導向方法,UML都是適用的。 UML的重要性 1.UML是OMG公佈的官方標準。 2.UML已為全世界軟體業者所廣泛採用,各大軟體公司(Microsoft、IBM、Oracle等) 3.在其產品中均支援UML。 4.UML的應用領域越來越廣(資料庫設計、韌體設計、資訊管理等)。 UML的現行版本 UML現行版本為1.5版(http://www.omg.org/technology/documents/formal/uml.htm),但2.0版將近完成,應會在短期內正式公佈(http://www.omg.org/uml)。 UML的內容到底是什麼? UML對於軟體開發相關人員而言,其實就只是一組符號及規則,其中包括: 1.Basic Building Blocks(都有其相對的符號) (1)......

Uml Term Papaer on Domain Analysis

...LOVELY PROFESSIONAL UNIVERSITY TERM PAPER ON Extending UML to Support Domain Analysis SUBMITTED TO:- SUBMITTED BY:- Mr. SANDEEP SINGH AKANSHU KUMAR Reg No:-11112286 ROLL No:- A21 SECTION:- K1107 Abstract:- The process of modelling and developing commonality and variability for system families should be supported by suitable methods and notations. The object-oriented methods and their notations, which are used at present, focus on the development of a single system at a time. In this paper we analyse feature models as a representation of the common parts and variants contained in a system family, and propose using a feature diagram as a basic representation of commonality, variability and dependencies. We examine various approaches to customizing the standard modelling language UML to model system families and propose how to extend the UML for the purposes of modelling variants in object-oriented analysis and design techniques. We recommend the use of UML standard lightweight extensibility mechanisms (stereotypes combined with tagged values) without changing the UML metamodel. This enables us to join the advantages of feature models with UML and provides the traceability of a concept throughout......

Phase Diagram

...Phase diagram When f assumes a double-well form a miscibility gap which is a situation where the systems cannot take any arbitrary concentrations is observed. Figure 1 is a phase diagram which relates to the final form of f. The common tangent f defines the points of concentration with the ce1 and ce2 as the values, which is used to establish the coexistence curve in the Tc-plane as illustrated in the bimodal. The positions of concentrations are defined by equal chemical potentials which are the slope of the tangent. The stable single phase is above the bimodal area, the supplement of this area is known to states that are unstable thermodynamically. The curve indicated by spinodal is determined by inflection points cs1, cs2 of f. Metastable (f”> 0 ) and unstable (f”< 0)subareas of the curve are separated with the spinodal. If the systems is reduced below a critical temperature, it undergoes a split into two phases this is known as a homogeneous state. The path to phase division conventionally is referred as spinodal decomposition if it is an inner state of the spinodal and nucleation if it is in a metastable area or region. Phase transition The qualitative changes that occur in equilibrium state of a system and those changes act as externally imposed constraints is referred to as phase transition. The constraints may be physical quantities such as pressure, temperature, concentration or any other. In the subsequent section, I will bear in mind that a......

Ecd Diagram

... Example Case to 3NF Tables Purpose The COIS20025 textbook and assignments have numerous exercises that require you to take a given case and generate a data design for the case. The data design will typically consist of an ERD, 3NF table designs including keys (obviously) and sample data. The purpose of this document is to give an example of how to do this. It walks you through the process of completing this task. Preparation This document draws on "Developing Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs)" available from the Assignment 2, Resources page. You should become familiar with that resource before going any further. The Case This document will use the same case as used in the "Developing Entity Relationship Diagrams (ERDs)" document. It is included below. A company has several departments. Each department has a supervisor and at least one employee. Employees must be assigned to at least one, but possibly more departments. At least one employee is assigned to a project, but an employee may be on vacation and not assigned to any projects. The important data fields are the names of the departments, projects, supervisors and employees, as well as the supervisor and employee number and a unique project number. You are required to: 1. Create an ERD with cardinality notation. 2. Create 3NF table designs. 3. For each of the entities identified, design tables and identify the possible candidate keys, the primary key, a probable foreign key, and potential secondary...

Oci-Diagram

...OCI- Diagram Summary The diagram pertains to the client acquisition and the process OCI took when it came to acquiring clients. The majority of their clients were obtain from advertising. The advertising produce many applicants for OCI but many were rejected. The ones that were rejected by OCI was due to couple factors. The first factor was that OCI didn’t think the scope fit OCI objective and it wasn’t feasible in the perceptive, and it was clear why it wasn’t feasible but it could be due to club timeline. Due to these two factor many of the applicants were rejected. Another reason applicant were rejected is because OCI believed that the applicant viewed their organization as cheap labor and they would work like “worker bee”. The organization also acquired clients by personal references. The personal reference usually led to numerous applicant but it also could have the adverse effect on them if a client wasn’t satisfied with the work The diagram also focus on member recruitment which is very important. The club is on a strict timeline because all projects have to be completed by the end of the year. In order for that to happen, all officers and elected officials decision had to be done and approved by October. Member’s recruitment was based on previous member experience. Where the member had a good or bad experience would affect the increase or decrease in the number of perspective member signing up. In most case, some of the members that had a negative......

Diagramas Uml

...DIAGRAMA DE CLASES EN UML Mg. Juan José Flores Cueto jflores@usmp.edu.pe Ing. Carmen Bertolotti Zuñiga cbertolotti@usmp.edu.pe INTRODUCCIÓN UML (Unified Modeling Language) es un lenguaje que permite modelar, construir y documentar los elementos que forman un sistema software orientado a objetos. Se ha convertido en el estándar de facto de la industria, debido a que ha sido impulsado por los autores de los tres métodos más usados de orientación a objetos: Grady Booch, Ivar Jacobson y Jim Rumbaugh. En el proceso de creación de UML han participado, no obstante, otras empresas de gran peso en la industria como Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Oracle o IBM, así como grupos de analistas y desarrolladores. En UML 2.0 hay 13 tipos diferentes de diagramas. Para comprenderlos de manera concreta, a veces es útil categorizarlos jerárquicamente:  Diagramas de estructura enfatizan en los elementos que deben existir en el sistema modelado: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.  Diagrama de clases Diagrama de componentes Diagrama de objetos Diagrama de estructura compuesta (UML 2.0) Diagrama de despliegue Diagrama de paquetes Diagramas de comportamiento enfatizan en lo que debe suceder en el sistema modelado: 7. Diagrama de actividades 8. Diagrama de casos de uso 9. Diagrama de estados  Diagramas de Interacción, un subtipo de diagramas de comportamiento, que enfatiza sobre el flujo de control y de datos entre los elementos del sistema modelado: 10.
