Comment: Migrated to Confluence 4.0


The group should consider a naming (categorization) and numbering convention for its use cases and these can be helpful in identifying use cases to be written, assigning them to analysts, and tracking them.  This leads to other aspects of ontology.  Specifically, the use cases should refer to a consistent set of actors and information systems.  Because we are authoring an and managing these in wiki format, we may wish to hyperlink to a consistent set of pages documenting and explaining these actors and applications.


The Task Force is preparing very specific, structured use cases that the EdUnify frameworks will support to help identify , and it will identify the specifications and technology technologies that it will develop or apply as informed by these use cases.  The Task Force is preparing use cases in a common format to help identify the constituents served and processes addressed in each use case.  There is a template which can be used to start each new use case.
