use case analysis

A method for designing or improving applications and information systems by breaking down requirements into user functions. Each use case is a transaction or sequence of events performed by the user. For example, filling out a form can be a use case. Diagrams are often used, which can be very effective as long as they are kept simple. See use case and UML.
