Object-Oriented Analysis & Design Using UML Training Class Summary

Object-Oriented Analysis and Design (OOA&D) is a process of identifying the needs of a software project and laying out specifications in various models. The Unified Process, in which four iterative phases are used to hone the architecture and build the system, is the framework for many OOA&D endeavors. Each phase can consist of models from different perspectives. These models are documented using the Unified Modeling Language, an industry-standard language for visualizing, specifying, and documenting the architecture of the system.

In this course, students learn how to identify and design objects, classes, and their relationships to each other, which includes links, associations, and inheritance. A strong emphasis is placed on UML diagram notation for use cases, class and object representation, links and associations, and object messages. This course utilizes UML 2.0 notation.

Audience: Analysts, designers, and programmers responsible for applying OO techniques in their software engineering projects.

Prerequisites: Familiarity with structured techniques such as functional decomposition is helpful.

Class Length: 5 days
