Subject Title
Analysis and Design Using OO Models

Subject Description
This subject focuses on the practical application of object oriented concepts to the development of business systems. Students will learn how to use object oriented analysis and design techniques to create software models of business systems using the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the Rational Rose modeling tool. Students will perform use case analysis to identify initial classes and will progress to detailed class design, defining class attributes, behaviours, hierarchies and relationships. Throughout the course students will work on creating a detailed software model based on a business case study.
