UML and BPMN for Business Analysts with Enterprise Architect
This course is specifically designed for Business Analysts wishing to learn about eliciting, elaborating and analysing requirements using Enterprise Architect (EA) from Sparx Systems.
The course focuses on how to understand the problem domain by building business processes and a domain model using the UML, Profiles and EA. Textual requirements are discussed and imported into EA to express the requirements management and traceability options available. The business processes, sub processes and activities are then mapped within EA with special attention being paid to how business events, resources, goals, rules and relationships can be modelled with the UML and BPMN.
The system boundary is then uncovered and use cases elicited using an actor/goal methodology. The use cases are then documented in EA with textual scenarios, sequence diagrams, activity diagrams and interaction overview diagrams. The stateful nature of the system and key concepts is then considered, expressed and integrated to form a robust requirements model in EA. Data and UI modelling are then covered along with how to express, capture and trace UAT, system, integration and unit tests within EA.
Finally, project estimation and requirements traceability features of Enterprise Architect are explored. The practical element of this course is at least 60%
