 Visits: 19 Updated: Fri 07/31/2015 @ 07:34 RATING: 

Description:

This introductory course explores the main approaches to handling risks associated with software projects - developed by analyzing thousands of successful and unsuccessful projects. These approaches are known as “best practices of software engineering”:

  •         Develop Iteratively
  •         Manage Requirements
  •         Use Component Architectures
  •         Model Visually (UML)
  •         Continuously Verify Quality
  •         Manage Change

 The practices, implementation rules and CASWE tools are described in the IBM Rational Unified Process on their website. The presentation includes a detailed description of the roles, artifacts and activities in software development processes including best practices.

Target Audience:

Analysts, business analysts, developers and team leads that want to get an insight into the best practices of software engineering.

  •  Provide guidelines for software project activities that can significantly reduce the risk of project failure. The practices are strongly related to CMMI level 2
  • Define the role of IBM RUP methodology as a framework of best practices

Roadmap:

  •         Best practice – Develop Iteratively
  •         Best practice – Manage Requirements
  •         Best practice – Use Component Architectures
  •         Best practice – Model Visually (UML)
  •         Best practice – Continuously Verify Quality
  •         Best practice – Manage Change
  •         IBM RUP as a framework of best practices

ВАВОК: Requirements Lifecycle Management  --  VISIT
 Visits: 1 Updated: Fri 07/31/2015 @ 07:10 RATING: 

Description:

The course is designed for business analysts and systems analysts, who need to understand the key tasks, the contents of input and output documents as well as operation techniques for domain analysis. This will allow participants to understand how to gather the necessary information about the customer’s business and requests in order to create a high quality solution, within a reasonable amount of time.

The course is based on materials from the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA.com), specifically the BABOK® Guide, and is dedicated to one of the BABOK Knowledge Areas, namely Requirements Management and Communication (ВАВОК Chapter 4). The course introduces the basic concepts and terms of the BABOK® Guide, briefly describes the structure of the guide in general, and then sets out in detail to describe the tasks in the specified BABOK Knowledge Area.

Target Audience:

Analysts, business analysts and team leaders who need to understand the objectives and content of the tasks performed during the requirements elicitation and domain analysis phases in accordance with the BABOK® Guide

Objectives:

  1. Understand the activities and considerations for managing and expressing requirements to a broad and diverse audience. These tasks are performed to ensure that all stakeholders have a shared understanding of the nature of a solution and that the stakeholders with approval authority are in agreement regarding the requirements that the solution has to meet.
  2. Learn to communicate requirements in order to help stakeholders reach an agreement. Because stakeholders are people with different backgrounds and business expertise, this communication is both challenging and critical to the success of any initiative. It involves determining which sets of requirements are relevant to a particular stakeholder group and presenting those requirements in an appropriate format for that audience.
  3. Discover how to manage requirements in order to understand the effects of change and how to link business goals and objectives to the actual solution that is developed and delivered. Over the long term, it also ensures that the knowledge and understanding of the organization gained during the business analysis process is available for future use.

Roadmap:

  •         BABOK® Guide. Structure and key terms
  •         Manage Solution Scope & Requirements
  •         Manage Requirements Traceability
  •         Maintain Requirements for Re-use
  •         Prepare Requirements Package
  •         Communicate Requirements

Prerequisites:

You must pass the final test of the “REQ-002 Development and Management of UML Requirements and Use Case Model Workshop” course or complete this course at the training center.
