Subject of a Use Case represents a system under consideration to which that Use Case applies. The subject can be any element that may have a behavior, that is, a Component or Class (SysML Block).


To specify the Use Case subject

  1. Select the Use Case or its shape.
  2. Drag it onto a Class, SysML Block, or Component shape. The Use Case becomes nested in that shape, and the appropriate model element is set as the Use Case subject.
