A is a software and system engineering term that describes how a user uses a system to accomplish a particular goal. A use case acts as a software modeling technique that defines the features to be implemented and the resolution of any errors that may be encountered. Use cases define interactions between external actors and the system to attain particular goals. There are three basic elements that make up a use case:

  • Actors: Actors are the type of users that interact with the system.
  • System: Use cases capture functional requirements that specify the intended behavior of the system.
  • Goals: Use cases are typically initiated by a user to fulfill goals describing the activities and variants involved in attaining the goal.
