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.

Intended for

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

Background

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

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
  • The data model of case 1 is being refined. The data model of case 2 is built
  • Finishing the data model of case 1 and case 2
  • Conversion of the old to the new system (data)
  • Process model
  • Introduction to process modelling
  • Start of the process model of cases 1 and 2
  • 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 1 and case 2 based on the process model
  • Rounding-off

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.

Duration

4 days.

Great 8/10

Interesting for beginners. Maybe more examples (even small) when teaching the theory

 
  (, )

Well planned, detailed and nicely phased over a period

really enteresting course, wele explain with nice example . I just regret that the course was not linked enaugh with the BNP

 
  (, )

good teacher, interesting course to get the basics

 
  (, )

Very good, learned and heard what I expected - well explained

 
  (, )

Good and very useful - gave me good first insight in functional analysis

 
  (, )

Very good - teacher knows subject very well and is knowledgable

Useful. I have a good overview of techniques of functional analysis

 
  (, )

Missed opportunity. Already followed the course. I came with the expectation that we would see how to work in the future, but it was more a test/trial out

 
  (, )

Theory good but too long. Clear examples. Case has no added value.

 
  (, )

A difference must be made between beginner and experienced participants. More view on use case methodology

 
  (, )

The course is too much an overview, not enough into detail. Would have liked to see more actual used templates within the company also. For an overview is 5 days also too long. Except that the course was well presented.

 
  (, )

Really interesting. However, more explanation around SOLAR case is really mandatory as already discussed

 
  (, )

Ik vond dat er teveel theorie was en dat er meer kleine oefeningen of voorbeelden bij mogen. Deze cursus is niet voor ervaren analysten maar voor nieuwkomers

 
  (, )

Very interesting and well organized. UML is not easy to summerize in 5 days

 
  (, )

Nice combination of theory and exercises. Very in-depth analysis of the solutions of the exercices

 
  (, )

Excellent

 
  (, )

good, but dificult with basis business analist

 
  (, )

excellent teacher with deep knowledge of the subject. However the course sometimes only gives an overview; too many subjects don't get into it. Only at the surface

 
  (, )

very interesting, we understand the place of the FA in the V model. We also understand beter what we have to analyse

 
  (, )

good version of uml. Martin give a lot of exemple to illustrate the theory. His English is very competent

 
  (, )

the course was very good, lot of practical cases were tested and that's a good way to acquire new skills

 
  (, )

nice course and well explained but probably too many slides and not wel structured. It was difficult to follow the flow of the training

 
  (, )

I have a good appreciation of the course. I really like the practical exercises and the tips that we learned based on the experience of the teacher

 
  (, )

Great teacher who has business experience. Learn by doing exercices: nice (difficult because all trainees do not have same background). good overview of FA. The documentation could be improved with an index and a recap/resume.

 
  (, )

A nice training to get to know FA, but though different from what me are used to in the company

 
  (, )

Very profound knowledge of the subject and taught in a way that is clear to understand

 
  (, )

It's a good course,just a little bit too scholar

 
  (, )

I really liked the training. The exercices were more than simple tasks, but there was also very useful feedback on it, wich makes you look at functional decisions differently

 
  (, )

very useful for my job

 
  (, )

really good course , a lot of exercises. Learning by doing makes the training interactive and interesting

Also interesting
