Functional design

Having a good set of requirements is not enough to have a design. During the functional analysis phase, the purpose and the boundaries of the system are defined. This produces a general design that gets the approval of the user. The next step is the transformation of this general design to a functional design. For a small application the functional analysis and the detailed functional design can be combined; but for bigger projects the two aspects are distinct and will be separated.

In this 3-day course you learn how to make a functional detailed design, starting from a global design or set of requirements. This facilitates the making of a technical design, which may even be superfluous in some environments.
