Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject aims to introduce students to the concept of advanced object oriented conceptual modelling for software engineering and data modelling. It uses as its fundamental conceptual data model, the object-oriented model. Unified Modelling Language (UML) notation is adopted for graphical representation. Several software development processes, including the Rational Unified Process (RUP) and Extreme Programming (XP), are presented and critically examined. Object Constraint Language (OCL) is presented as well as its uses in rigorous object-oriented data modelling.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Critique the significance of software development process, and understand the approaches taken by various common software development processes, e.g. RUP and XP

Activities:
Software development process is covered in 2 lectures and 1 lab. The lab has a number of short questions on various software development issue and a major question to provide an overview of a light-weight software development process.

02. Apply UML models (including use case models, class diagrams, sequence diagrams, state machines, activity diagrams) to construct analysis and design models

Activities:
A model is covered approximately one or two lectures. The practice on the use of a model is covered in one or two labs.

03. Analyse the strengths and shortcomings of a simple system design project

Activities:
Some analysis and design techniques related to a model are presented in the lectures where that model is presented, and practised in labs devoted to that model (e.g. behavioural modeling using sequence diagrams is presented in the lecture and practised in the lab on sequence diagrams). Other analysis and design techniques are covered in one or more lectures by themselves and practised in one or two labs (e.g. domain modeling is covered in two lectures and practised in two labs).

04. Develop object-oriented conceptual, analysis and design models for software-intensive systems, with emphasis on rigorous modeling

Activities:
In addition to those for use case and domain modeling, four more lectures and two more labs are devoted to the techniques required for developing the skills pertaining to this ILO. Further practice to develop these skills are covered in the assignment.

05. Evaluate object-oriented conceptual, analysis and design models with prescribed prototyping and testing techniques

Activities:
This is covered in one lecture and two labs.
