  • A look at the object browser and how models are structured using views and packages
  • Diagramming techniques
  • Enterprise Architect Options menu
  • Enterprise Architect Settings menu
  • How to search the model
  • Focus is on getting new users to a point where they are familiar with how to use the tool and where to find certain features; also trying to instil best practice early on such as using package diagrams to structure views and reuse of elements in the model.

Use Cases

  • How to draw the Use Case diagram
  • Identification of use cases and actors
  • Discussion on application within iterative development methodologies

Class Diagram

  • Discuss classes and objects
  • How to draw class diagrams
  • Differences between domain modelling and implementation modelling
  • Object diagram (brief overview)

State Machine Diagram

Sequence Diagram

  • Discuss differences between using sequence diagrams for analysis or design
  • How to draw sequence diagrams

Component Diagram

  • How to draw Component Diagrams
  • Discuss Applications of Component Diagrams such as analysing existing Architectures to look for possible optimisations
  • Show how to link component class design to the component without compromising the structure of the model

Deployment Diagram

  • How to draw Deployment Diagrams
