Collect information sources
Use information already collected for the construction of use case diagrams
Find activities and actions
Adopt actors from business use cases
And who is responsible for each action. Unit or person.
In Which Order are Actions Processed? Which conditions have to be met in order for an action to be executed? Where are branches necessary? Which occur simultaneously?
Do any other activity diagrams have to be added?
Verify the view
Is everything correct?
System Sequence Diagram
1. Define who will initiate the interaction. Draw an actor on the diagram to specify who kick starts the interaction within a system
2. Draw the first message to a sub-system. Specify the message sent from the actor who begins the interaction to the first point of contact in the system.
3. Draw message to other sub-systems. Send other messages between objects (i.e. lifelines) in the system.
4. Draw return message to actor. Send return messages back to the original callers upon receiving their messages.
5. Send/Respond to anonymous actors. Send messages to unknown receivers or receive messages from unknown senders.
Document a workflow
1. Identify the process.
2. Name your process
3. ID a clear start point and end point
4. Identify your purpose for diagramming the workflow.
5. List or draw out a series of steps
6. Look for exceptions or rules
7. Use the symbols
Steps to create a Domain Model Class
1.Identify candidate conceptual classes
2.Draw them in a UML domain model
3.Add associations necessary to record the relationships that must be retained
4.Add attributes necessary for information to be preserved
5.Use existing names for things, the vocabulary of the domain
•A is subpart/member of B. (SaleLineItem-Sale)
•A uses or manages B. (Cashier –Register, Pilot-airplane)
•A communicates with B. (Student -Teacher)
•A is transaction related to B. (Payment -Sale)
•A is next to B. (SaleLineItem-SaleLineItem)
•A is owned by B. (Plane-Airline)
•A is an event related to B. (Sale-Store)
Graphical representations of workflows of stepwise activities and actions with support for choice, iteration and concurrency. Show the overall flow of control. UML Diagram.
Class Diagrams - Top Down
Identify and model classes—Which classes do we need?
Identify and model associations—How are the classes connected?
Define attributes—What do we want to know about the objects?
Class Diagram - Bottom Up
List required queries and inputs—What does the IT system need to deliver and accept?
Formulate queries and inputs—How exactly should the display look?
Conduct information analysis—Which classes, associations, and attributes do we need?
Consolidate class diagrams—How does everything fit together?
Verify the class diagrams—Is everything correct?
Use case diagram elements
Sequence Diagram elements
ID entities (Nouns, names)
ID relationships (verbs, conveys an action)
ID and assosciate attributes with entities or relationships
Determine candidate, primary and alternate key attributes
Check ER model for redundancy and remove if found
Check ER model supports user transactions
Review model with users
Check support user interactions
Check Business Rules
Review with users
