Praktisches & Grundsätzliches zur Informatik


Use Cases – what they are and what they are for

Use Cases summarize what an application will have to do for the users.

Use Cases — according to Alistair Cockburn (and I fully agree with him) —

  • are text,
  • are a 3-9 steps scenario (preferrably on one page only)
  • are easy to read,
  • speak at the user's level,
  • and are to record decisions made.

They are not:

  • UML diagrams,
  • do not describe a GUI,
  • do not describe data formats,
  • and are not meant to be tutorials on the application domain.
