Use cases are increasingly popular, but many large organizations find it difficult to develop the complex use case models they need -- and poorly developed models fail to achieve their goals. In Advanced Use Case Modeling, Volume I, two leading use case experts present proven techniques for applying use cases in even the most challenging environments. The book begins with a clear, rigorous, example-driven explanation of the fundamental concepts of use cases. Next, the authors introduce repeatable processes for developing use cases that successfully drive systems design. Readers will learn the traps and pitfalls of use case design and how to avoid them; then discover new techniques for addressing the most important use case modeling issues -- several of which have never before been discussed in a book. All descriptions and examples reflect the latest UML notation. For all object-oriented designers, analysts, and software engineers -- and for all managers and users involved in object-oriented development projects.

"This book isn't just another introduction to use cases. The authors have used their wealth of experience to produce an excellent and insightful collection of detailed examples, explanations, and advice on how to work with use cases."―Maria Ericsson
The toughest challenge in building a software system that meets the needs of your audience lies in clearly understanding the problems that the system must solve. Advanced Use Case Modeling presents a framework for discovering, identifying, and modeling the problem that the software system will ultimately solve.
Software developers often employ use cases to specify what should be performed by the system they're constructing. Although use case-driven analysis, design, and testing of software systems has become increasingly popular, little has been written on the role of use cases in the complete software cycle. This book fills that need by describing how to create use case models for complex software development projects, using practical examples to explain conceptual information.
The authors extend the work of software visionary Ivar Jacobson, using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) as the notation to describe the book's models. Aimed primarily at software professionals, Advanced Use Case Modeling also includes information that relates use case technique to business processes.
This book presents a process for creating and maintaining use case models in a framework that can be fully customized for your organization. The authors, pioneers in the application of use cases in software development, bring their extensive experience to cover topics such as:
Frank Armour is currently on the faculty of the Kogod School of Business at American University and is a senior consultant for American Management Systems (AMS). He has been the lead object methodologist at AMS, assisting AMS object projects in such areas as use case modeling, object concepts, project management, methods, and tools.
Granville Miller is a pioneer in the application of use cases in developing advanced frameworks for software systems. He has spent 13 years working with object-oriented systems in the software industry, working to advance object-oriented technology at IBM, Nortel Networks, BroadBand Technologies, and Make Systems.
