The Use Case Technique: An Overview

Use cases are an effective and widely used technique for eliciting software requirements. The usage-centric approach focuses on the goals that users have with a system, rather than emphasizing system functionality. This presents an overview of the use-case approach to requirements elicitation in a practical and straightforward fashion. Topics covered include:

  • Where use cases fit into the requirements development process
  • Types of projects for which use cases are and are not well suited
  • Use cases and user stories
  • User classes and actors
  • Scenarios and use cases
  • Components of a use case
  • Deriving functional requirements from use cases
