The role of use cases in the requirements process is examined, and best practices explored. Use cases are an official part of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) – a specification maintained by the OMG. We will examine the official UML specification of a use case and compare it to actual usage in industry. A use case template is presented and sample use cases critiqued.
