Object-Oriented Analysis using UML Course

Object Orientation, or OO, is a methodology that can be used during the whole software development life cycle: from analysis of users' needs, to design and then coding and testing. The Unified Modelling Language (UML) is an international set of diagrams for modelling your system using an object-oriented approach.

This course will teach you how to analyse and document your system using established OO principles. It will help you to understand the problem and the solution better, and communicate it more effectively. The course will also make it easier to work with developers who use an object-oriented approach.

This course is run in parallel with the first 3 days of the Object-Oriented Analysis & Design using UML course. If you have programming experience, you will benefit more from attending the full 5 days.

Duration: 3 days. Courses are presented from 08:30 to 16:30.
Investment: R8,200.00 excluding VAT per delegate.
Venue: The Incus Data Training Venue in Centurion, Pretoria. Courses can also be presented on-site for 5 or more delegates.
Dates: Please check the course schedule for the next available date. You can also contact us at tel: (+27) 12 666 2020 or email us at info@incusdata.com to find out about dates.

Audience: Is This The Right Course For Me?

You should attend the Object Oriented Analysis using UML course if:

  • You are a business analyst, project manager or system architect, and you work with developers who use object orientation.
  • You need to learn how to read and write use cases.
  • You need to understand the object-oriented process.

Prerequisites: Am I Ready For The Course?

You do not need to have any knowledge of object orientation or programming before attending the Object Oriented Analysis using UML course.

If you are a programmer, then you should rather attend the Object-Oriented Analysis & Design using UML course course, which includes this course.

Please ensure you meet the prerequisites for the Object-Oriented Analysis using UML Course before you attend the course. Read the importance of course prerequisites to understand why this is necessary.

Objectives: What Will I Learn?

After you have completed the Object Oriented Analysis using UML course, you will be able to:

  • Analyse a system in terms of the objects involved.
  • Read and write use cases.
  • Take part in a design session that uses Class, Responsibilities, and Collaboration (CRC) cards.
  • Identify high-level classes and the relationships between them.
