Objectifs du cours

At the end of the ocurse, the student should be able to :
define requirements for a project using a combination of semi-formal (e.g. UML) and informal (e.g. metaphor) methods. These methods rapidly produce models of complex and innovative business processes that are appropriate for specifying requirements of users, customers, suppliers, and other stakeholders of the processes, as well as for technical personnel tasked with their implementation.

Contenu du cours

The course will begin with an exploration of the differences between the problem domain, the solution domain, and the metaphor domain, and the function of each domain. The importance of separation of the domains will be examined, as well as the necessity for communication between domains. The role of formal methods and how they relate to the domains will be briefly covered. The course then shifts to a focus on semi-formal and informal methods of requirements definition and their relationship to the three domains. The course then explores in detail several methods of semi-formal and informal specification, including UML diagrams (use case, activity, state, and sequence diagrams), object cubes, story cards, and the use of metaphor. Students will do homework assignments requiring mastery of the types of specification. They will also have a final exam, and a group project for an innovative business problem.
