Requirements Management with Sparx Enterprise Architect provides students with a hands-on opportunity for learning how to capture business and system analysis models with the Unified Modeling Language 2.0 (UML) using Sparx Systems Enterprise Architect (EA). To begin, in an EA overview, students learn how to create, delete, and move model elements, draw relationships and model organization guidelines. 

Students begin building a fact/domain model using class diagrams and then create actors and use cases to build a use case model.  The course continues with modeling business rules and specifying business entity attributes. Activity diagrams are used to specify behavior.  Then students capture the project vision by importing and marking requirements in documents and establishing traceability relationships using a relationship matrix. Specifying, tracing, importing/exporting requirements are also covered.  Most class time is used doing hands-on lab exercises following a step-by-step workbook.
