Use Case Analysis

Use case analysis is performed in early stages of elaboration phase of Rational Unified Process (RUP). It acts as a foundation for the system to be built. Use case model is transformed into analysis model; so there is shift from requirements centric activities to analysis & design centric activities.

Use case analysis involves supplementing use case description, finding analysis classes, distributing behavior, identifying attributes, establishing associations etc.

To know in detail, what is the purpose of each step and how that is carried out, please see presentation available here.
