Use Case Diagrams: The Main Functions of “MeetingOfMinds”


Use Case diagram is the useful UML diagrams especially for highlighting the functions of the system, different roles  and how these roles interact with the system. Hence,it aims to present the high level view of the system particularly for stakeholders.

In the case of “MeetingOfMinds” application, we have three actors who are: Student, Professors and Administrator and each of them has different interface in which he will be able to interact with the application and use the services ( functions ) provided. We has used Smart Draw online tool to build the Use Case Diagrams for the “MeetingOfMinds” application. 

The following diagrams describe the four main functions of “MeetingOfMinds” application.

Application Requirements

After identifying the application purpose and target group, based on these we developed a set of requirements that should be met on the application. But before the actual development of the software, we needed to decide what is essential for the first version of it [1] and what features are recommended for the future work. Thus, we chose to prioritize the requirements. We used the MoSCoW technique to do so. This way, we selected an appropriate set of requirements from the overall set in order to develop cost-effective software that respects its purpose. We, also, identified the desired or nice to have features in the future versions. A brief description of the MoSCoW technique we applied can be found below: Continue reading “Application Requirements”
