  • Problem definition.
  • Feasibility analysis.
  • Requirements gathering.
  • Requirements specification (i.e. functional and nonfunctional).
  • Events, use cases and test cases.
  • System requirements models (i.e. analysis of class diagrams and data flow diagrams).
  • Unified Modeling Language (UML) and case tools.
