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.
