Created with Sketch.

In order for the entire project team to have access to the Use Case, the corresponding key user working group must be added to the project. This step is done via Chapter Admin. If you as project manager have created a new Use Case, you can inform your Chapter Admin and he will add the project team to the Use Case. All members should then have access to the Use Case.

Someone on the team does not have access to the Use Case?

Which Life Cycle Stages are recommended for our Use Cases?

Created with Sketch.

The description of a Use Case should be as generic as possible. If too many stages and sub-stages are selected, the complexity of the description increases massively. In this case, it is recommended to separate Use Cases and to describe only one stage, for example. A subsequent Use Case can be set in dependency on the previous Use Case (in the Basics field).

Why can't I select any stages?

Created with Sketch.

If a red prohibition symbol appears when you move your mouse over the phases, you must first click on "Edit" at the top left to open the editing mask.

A norm/data sheet is missing, can I add it?

Are there templates for the process description?

Created with Sketch.

Yes, you can download the template here.

Is my Use Case publicly visible?

Created with Sketch.

Your Use Case is not publicly visible until a revision has been saved and the project manager has notified the PMO that the Use Case is ready for publication. From this moment on it is publicly visible and can be downloaded by registered users.
