Object Oriented Analysis and Design (OOAD) With UML

Course ID: OOAD

This course teaches proven real-world techniques to meet the biggest challenge in the software development community - building quality systems which fulfill your requirements, and delivering them on time.  The focus of the course is to give you the practical skills that are most critical in building well designed software systems.  It is extremely hands-on and applied, as well as giving you the formal knowledge you need to be fully conversant in this important area.

Participants will finish this course with a thorough understanding of what OOAD is (and is not), what are the techniques and choices that are available, how to use the techniques, and most importantly, when to use a particular technique to best effect, and when not to use it (e.g. - to avoid “analysis paralysis”).  Software built using these techniques has a very high success rate industry-wide.

The course focuses on three areas:

Concepts : OO concepts & best practices
Notation: OO diagramming notation (UML)
Process: Process of developing OO systems

Each area is introduced individually for clarity, and then all three are brought together with added depth in the context of a group project.  The group project gives participants the chance to apply what they have learned, and also reflects the team environment most people are working in.

The course includes coverage of the most useful tools that exist today, including:  Using Unified Modeling Language (UML) to document designs, documenting requirements with Use Cases, static and dynamic system modeling, software processes (Unified Process/RUP/Agile), Design Patterns, and coverage of best practices in software development.
