We have a sit here at the mo where it is being useful. Designing a fairly
amorphous product. The key is the technology behind it to manipulate really
large (press-quality) images in real-time across the net. However, what
embodiments does this technology require? What functions are users going to
ask for to help get their job done? What jobs can it be used for? All these
questions and more answer themselves with a comprehensive set of use cases.
If you do this part of your due diligence, you will find your product is a
more complete representation of the users requirements.
Additionally, FWIW, I have been part of many dev teams where the use cases
are used by the sys architects to design the system. IE: The use cases are
the first part completed.
