Thanks Joanne.  I certainly agree that the Use Case Template that you have linked to is very useful and, in fact, looks very similar to ones that I have used in the past in the context of specific software development projects.  I think that the current HCLS UC Template is aimed more at being a higher-level "scope and boundary of proposed activity" template than a formal "use case for software development" template.  As such, perhaps the name "Use Case Template" is not quite correct and maybe "Business Use Case" or "Business Scope Definition" might be better.  In the end, I think that both templates are useful since a single instance of the current HCLS template would naturally give rise to multiple instances of your template, all of which would flesh out component various operational threads of the upper-level use case/business scope defined in the current HCLS template.

Does this make sense to you, or do you think your suggested template could/should replace the current HCLS template?

Hi Michel, Richard, Esteemed Colleagues,

I'd like to propose that we use (add) this use case template that we have found useful at RPI:

http://tw.rpi.edu/media/latest/UseCase-Template_SeS    Download<http://tw.rpi.edu/media/latest/UseCase-Template_SeS>

There are some examples at:  http://tw.rpi.edu/web/Courses/SemanticeScience/2011    See the reading assigned in Class 3 and examples assigned, in preparation for Class 4:  Use Case Development

Super! I put the use case in a google document for any to comment:

In response to the recent request, I have attached a draft of a new potential HCLS  use case focused especially on scientific discourse.

Any comments, critiques, or suggestions would be welcome.

Dear all,

Further to the first agenda point, use cases, for our call in 42 minutes, I'd like to review:

a) The new HCLS Use Case template which can be found here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1DRnwXw7xIOLTjZ4TUiDtT80ouSQYfUqM9KWKXVgr60s/edit?hl=en_US

b) Our current three use cases: http://www.w3.org/wiki/HCLSIG/SWANSIOC/Actions/RhetoricalStructure#Use_Cases

and ask ourselves and each other:

1) Are these use cases still valid, or have they been addressed by our work so far?
2) If they are valid, how can we get them to be compliant with the new format: can someone take on each use cases?
3) If there's time: brainstorm about other use cases, or otherwise make a plan to gather more use cases before the next meeting.

Talk in a bit! Best,

- Anita.

Subject: Reminder: HCLS Sci Disc call - ISA-RDF&  Use Case Review- Mon 26 Sept 10am-11am EDT / 14:00-15:00 UTC


This is a reminder for the biweekly HCLS Scientific Discourse concall scheduled for Monday, 26 Sept 10am-11am EDT / 14:00-15:00 UTC.

As discussed in the previous call, we'll be focusing on defined tasks and use cases for the coming year.

- we will begin a review and update of our use cases

- ISA-RDF will be discussed as a potential shared task for 2011-12 (see underlying ISA-TAB project here:  http://isa-tools.org/  for some background)
