ATI's OOAD Using the Unified Modeling Language (UML)course

Share |


    Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

      This course uses the industry-standard Unified Modeling Language (UML) as a means of depicting OO software design and providing team members with a common notation and vocabulary for communicating their ideas. Topics include: use case diagrams, class diagrams, interaction diagrams, state diagrams, implementation diagrams, the UML process, and advanced modeling concepts.


      Experience in analysis, design, or development is desirable.

    Who Should Attend:

      This course is designed for analysts, technical managers, and software developers who need a common, practical technique for describing object-oriented systems.

    Benefits of Attendance:

      Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

      • Explain the difference between object and procedure orientation;
      • Understand object-oriented concepts such as encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism;
      • Compare object-oriented analysis with other approaches to systems analysis;
      • Explain the origins of the Unified Modeling Language;
      • Use common features of UML diagrams;
      • Describe and compare features of UML tools;
      • Identify actors and use cases;
      • Write use case descriptions;
      • Create use case diagrams;
      • Identify classes, associations, aggregations, and multiplicity;
      • Construct class diagrams at various levels of detail;
      • Create sequence and collaboration diagrams;
      • Identify object states and substates;
      • Draw state diagrams and activity diagrams;
      • Use component and deployment diagrams;
      • Understand general characteristics of UML processes;
      • Describe the object-oriented software life cycle; and
      • Use basic object-oriented design and project metrics.
