Use Cases are widely used to identify and capture how humans and external systems interact with a System of Interest. However, how Use Cases are developed and leveraged to develop complex systems varies greatly within industry. This variance is especially true for Use Cases developed using Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), for which there are many methodologies, each providing a unique approach for developing Use Cases. This presentation provides an in-depth review of Use Case methods and styles and provides practical best practices for developing Use Cases on any project.
