Dr Richard Mitchell, InferData,  Austin, TX, USA

17:00 - 18:15h Talk and Q/A
Afterwards you are invited to a refreshment.


Use cases are central to most software development processes based on the
modelling language UML. Use cases help specifiers organise system
requirements around different kinds of users.

Use cases do not capture business rules. In some development processes, this
is a serious weakness. This talk will take a use case and from it develop a
model that does capture business rules.

The talk will briefly discuss what kinds of development processes can
benefit from modelling, and some of the consequences of persisting with
approaches based on use cases.


Richard Mitchell is a senior consultant for InferData Ltd of Austin, Texas,
a small consulting and training company specializing in model-driven
development of enterprise applications.

Richard has helped many companies build precise models of parts of their
businesses, and has trained many business analysts in modelling skills.

Richard is the lead author of "Design by Contract, by Example," which
describes the application to programming of the modelling principles used in
his talk.
