Use cases are a popular means of requirements engineer ing for object oriented systems However there is a lack of guidance on the contents and position of use cases in the overall software devel opment process In the paper we identify four levels of information to be included in the use case description based on existing methods in requirements speci cation and human computer interaction This gives methodical guidance for the development of use cases and also for the integration of use cases… Expand
On the Role of Activity Diagrams in UML - A User Task Centered Development Process for UML
This paper proposes to use activity diagrams as a bridge between use case diagrams and class diagrams, which gives a smooth transition from business processes to use cases, an abstract specification of complex object interactions and a succinct description of system functions affecting several objects.

Work Products for Integrated Software Development 1
Integration of development processes for different kinds of systems, such as information and embedded systems is an important topic when we build software systems for application domains that areExpand
This paper identifies a gap in ISD methodologies regarding the exclusion of tacit user requirements in the development of information systems (IS). It recognises that this will lead to IS failure,Expand

Characteristics of Patients with Oseltamivir-Resistant Pandemic (H1N1) 2009, United States
During April 2009–June 2010, thirty-seven (0.5%) of 6,740 pandemic (H1N1) 2009 viruses submitted to a US surveillance system were oseltamivir resistant. Most patients with oseltamivir-resistantExpand


Improving the use case driven approach to requirements engineering
The idea of usage oriented requirements engineering, an extension of use case driven analysis, is presented, resulting in a model which captures both functional requirements and system usage aspects in a comprehensive manner. Expand
A hierarchical use case model with graphical representation
A conceptual framework for use case modelling and a new use case model with graphical representation are presented, including support for different abstraction levels and mechanisms for managing large use case models. Expand
Object-Oriented Software Engineering
A text on industrial system development using object- oriented techniques, rather than a book on object-oriented programming. Will be useful to systems developers and those seeking a deeperExpand
Scenario usage in system development: a report on current practice
The authors consider the two-pronged strategy being followed to gain a deeper understanding of the diversity of scenarios, in order to help improve methodological and tool support for scenario-based requirements engineering. Expand
Retrospective and Challenges for Model-Based Interface Development
A generic architecture for model-based user interface development tools is proposed, the different approaches in light of this architecture are reviewed, and their progress towards the goals of increasing the quality and reducing the cost of developing interfaces is discussed. Expand
A Model-Based Approach to Presentation: A Continuum from Task Analysis to Prototype
This approach is considered complete in the sense that it supports a continuum from task analysis to a first prototype without disruption and shows how computer-aided tools can automatically generate the presentation of such an interface. Expand
Architecture of Integrated Information Systems: Foundations of Enterprise Modelling
This paper describes the development of the ARIS Information Model (Meta-Information System) and the role of the Process Chain Model in this architecture. Expand
