Thanks for your response Suzanne.
You bring out an interesting concept- system use case in addition to
business and product use case.
In my limited experience, I havent seen the technical folks (designers
and developers) document a system use case. This doesnt mean that they
dont design, they use UML diagrams like class, sequence, etc to
partition the internals of the system.
Is there a system use case template / example that you can share..
