InterConnect is organising a Webinar series on Open Innovation and Personal Data Protection in the ICT and energy fields.
The second webinar will be on the topic of Open Innovation. Josef Baumeister and Ralph-Ino Prüm, from EEBUS, will be speaking under the subject “Talking about use cases as a main pillar to describe customers’ needs and solutions” on December 4 at 3pm (CET).
About the webinar
In the last few years, use cases have established themselves as an elementary pillar for the description of requirements. In this webinar, we will introduce the process used in the Interconnect project, which describes the way from the first idea to the description of the necessary data to be exchanged at device level. Based on the Design Thinking method all relevant stakeholders and their requirements, all service concepts as well as EPICs, user stories and high level use cases will be developed. These reflect the view of the roles involved. In a further step, the High Level Use Cases are transformed into technical System Use Cases and documented in IEC format.
