Four Core Models for Scoping Requirements

A picture is worth a thousand words.  That is, a visual speaks to us in ways that written text cannot.  In the early years of schooling, children participate in lessons called “show and tell” as an effective way to express themselves (and keep the attention of their classmates).  The majority of adults learn most effectively when visuals (pictures, diagrams, tables, prototypes, and models) are used.  This session provides an overview of commonly used requirements-scoping models. Industry expert Roxanne Miller shares the four core models that she uses on every project! Come and discover the ‘power of four’ for yourself.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify symbols used in creating four scope models: relationship map, use case diagram, context diagram, and process map.

2. Understand how the traceability between the models helps to validate accuracy.

3. Discover the power of combining these four models to scope your next project.
