Functional analysis


The customer's wishes are not always clear enough to design a system straight away. This training will teach you to make the translation of a customer's requirement into the eventual system run smoother, with less faults.

During the course all aspects of designing a system are trained, from the first requirement to the final system design. Theory on designing systems and design phases will be trained thoroughly. The training is based on the LAD-method (Linear Application Development).

After the course attendees will be able to describe and analyse the customer's requirements better, and will also be able to translate this into a system that can be built accordingly. This will reduce the risk of faults. Preventing faults in this stage will prevent a project to be out of control.

Main topics

  • Introduction
  • Introduction participants
  • Introduction training, course objectives
  • Structure of the IT-client consultation
  • Theory of functional analysis and design basics
  • Data model
  • Design of the data model of case 1
  • Elaboration of the design technique, adaptations of the architecture
  • Normalization of the global data model.
  • Characteristics of a global data model versus a technical data model
  • Preparation for the technical implementation such as integrity, performance and consistency of the design

  • Elaboration of the process model of case 1
  • Description of interface design for the new system, Enterprise Service Bus, Architecture
  • Further elaboration of the process model of case 1
  • Combining the process model and the data model
  • Introduction
  • Testing the global model (data model/process model)
  • Testing of systems: what has to be done, what makes sense, what is less important, explanation
  • Combining the process model and the data model.
  • Adapting the data models of case 1and case 2 based on the process model
  • Rounding-off

Intended for

This training is meant for professionals with some design experience, who desire to design high quality systems.


Project experience is useful as is knowing a design tool and its use.

Training method

Classroom training with interactive exercises. Attendees work in small groups on a systems design, that will be built up from the customer's requirements up to the end report. During the training 2 case studies are used.

Well planned, detailed and nicely phased over a period (, )
good training mixing theory & practical cases. Good trainer bringing his experience (, )
well explained, very good exercices (, )
Very good course,lot of exercises, very good presentation (, )
Maybe the course should be more focused on people with already some good experience in Modeling. (, )
Good, a bit too long (, )
Good course but a bit too long. Professor was always open to questions and to explain better if we have questions or doubts. (, )
well structured, clear (, )
good balance between theory and exercises (, )
i'm satisfied (, )
