Do you have a favorite tip for writing a use case that you would like to share with us?  Here are some of our tips:

  • Use a two-column format.
  • Use structured sentences.
  • Use active verb phrases.
  • Write in the present tense.
  • Avoid compound sentences.
  • Describe the steps by starting every action with "The actor..." or "The system..."
  • Number the steps…but not until you’re done.
  • Each step should contain one testable, traceable requirement.
