Your Challenges

  • Many so called UML tools are too simple. While they provide a diagram editor for creating UML diagrams, they lack features for documenting use cases.
  • I don't want separate solutions for use case and requirements management. It makes traceability between system goal and system design difficult.
  • I need to output my use case model into a use case specification that can support our communication needs, but many products do not provide a robust reporting feature.
  • Besides UML, I want to model the business aspect under a use case with BPMN, but it's not easy to find a solution that supports UML and also other standards.

Our Solution

All-in-One Use Case tool

  • Visual Paradigm provides an intuitive UML diagram editor that allows you to create any kind of UML diagrams in the faster manner, and, of course, this includes the UML diagram tool. You can create actors, use cases and other use case diagram shapes with drag and drop. You can also place them neatly using the alignment guide.
  • We support all the notations you need to create use case diagrams. This includes not only actors and use cases, but also connectors like include, extend (incl. extension point). You can also create system boundary.
  • If you find the standard look of actors and use case not attractive enough, you can replace the notations with your own images.
  • Use Case is not just an oval shape. It can be very useful - if you have chosen a UML tool that understands what use case is! Here are the added features that help you document a use case in detail:
    • Flow of events: List the steps involved in completing a use case, with steps and wireframes.
    • Notes editor: Discuss requirements with stakeholders, and note down their requests, suggestions and concerns in the Use Case Notes editor.
    • Requirements management: Create requirements that respect and align to the business goals as represented by a use case.
    • Sub-diagrams: Take use case as a starting point of system design, elaborate it with other diagrams and manage them all under the use case, neatly and with traceability.
    • Reference artifacts: Manage the supplementary files, web pages, internal model and diagram linkages as references of the use case.

More than a diagramming tool...

  • Publish your use case model online so that people approved can view the design online, any time and from anywhere.
  • The comment tool allows people to, not only view the design but to leave comment right on the diagram. Designer can act upon requests, and then re-generate the use case specification.
  • Versioning system helps to keep revisions for design changes.
  • Built-in visual comparison tool allows the comparison of different phases of use case model. You can easily see the rationale behind changes through the commit log. You can even revert and roll back changes.
  • The branch and merge mechanism makes it simple to make independent and isolated changes.
  • Team members can work together on the same design through the collaboration tools. They can commit and update changes without worry about conflicted changes because we our collaboration engine features a smart conflict resolution tool that can detects conflicts and assists you in resolving conflicts.
