Sample text

First identify a prioritised feature list. This can be done by considering the systems’ requirements. These can be produced in whatever manner is appropriate. For example, through use cases, a formal requirements specification or user stories. What is required is that they are elaborated sufficiently to allow prioritisation and an initial cost estimate to be associated with them. 2. This initial feature list is then used to create a plan of the iterations to be undertaken. Each iteration should have one or more features associated with it and should not be too long.

Thus, when these systems were referenced we could just draw a square box and label it appropriately. For creating white board based models this saved time and space. Of course to anyone new to the project this would have meant nothing, but within the context it was being used, the term and short hand was very meaningful. 4 Accuracy and Consistency Another important aspect of Agile Modelling is that the models need to be only sufficiently accurate and consistent. ” Allied to this idea is that the model (or models) should be comprehensible to their intended audience (but by implication not necessarily comprehensible to everyone or at least sufficient for everyone) and sufficiently detailed for that audience.

3 · Agile Modelling 41 Fig. 10 A hand-drawn UML diagram. 5 Tool Misconceptions At this point, it is worthwhile considering some misconceptions and myths relating to the use of tools, modelling and UML. 1. UML requires CASE tools. This is certainly not true – I can draw a UML diagram freehand on paper, use a simple drawing package such as Paint or indeed with a tool such as Together. It may well be true that to strictly adhere to the UML notation it is easier to use something that knows about UML (and Visio might be such a tool).
