5. Identify Use Cases Only

After forms are identified, we initially identify but do not document in detail use cases (business processes). The documenting of uses cases can occur later in step 1 or early in step 2 of our 2-Step. Each use case is identified, labeled, and assigned to 1 or more actors as part of the Task Artifact that is identified with the specific form that contains use case, or in a UML Use Case diagram to accompany our standard documentation. If only a UML Use Case diagram is created at this point of the project, then the UML Use Case diagram is used during the Document Use Cases task where each use case and actor are associated with a specific App Artifact and documented.

Deliverable: 1+ tasks in step 1 or 2 of our 2-step. Optionally, we can deliver a UML use case diagram.

6. Identify and Document Actors

An actor represents a role or user of the application. Actors are defined with each application and can be linked with one or more requirement items, forms, and/or use cases (business processes).

Deliverable: Included as part of the App Specification from the app menu, or printed and/or delivered to the client for review anytime from the App Actors page.

7. Document Known Terms

Every business and custom application uses terms defined for their business. Definitions help clarify communication by establishing the meaning of verbiage and can be either a word or phrase.

To do: Ask client for a list of terms. If they do not have a list, perhaps client staff can generate a list of definitions to kick-start documenting of known terms. We will add to the list as we discover them.

Deliverable: Included as part of the App Specification from the app menu, or printed and/or delivered to the client for review anytime from the App Definitions page.

8. Convert, Identify Forms/Reports

Identify scope of the user interface. First, we identify forms and reports in use. Then narrow that list to what will be converted. In every case, the client drives this process with our help. Any forms or reports missed, can be added to the project when discovered. However, the client is responsible for validating the scope of the project. Each form and report is added to the step 2 of 2 build-it phase either as a task by itself or as part of task.

9. Archive Legacy System

Get source code, database, and any existing documenation from client. Do NOT check old source code into version control. Instead, place all files on Drive P under folder \ClientLabel\AppLabel_Old\Source\*.*

10. Generate Legacy Paradox PDFs

Create documentation directly from legacy Paradox system. We have a suite of PDoxDos and PDoxWin analysis tools which create our data models, data dictionaries, file inventories, and searchable reference databases. This documentation is used to create the new database as well as to extract many data driven business rules. This step includes setting up the legacy system with data in our development environment so developers can exercise the legacy system anytime needed throughout both steps of our 2-step process.

Deliverable: Saved as PDFs on drive P as well as sent to the client in an email.
