  • Use cases apply methodologies. (UseCase::AppliesMethodology)
  • Use case implementations can be rated in terms of effectiveness and efficiency. (Annotations pending...)
    • How precisely does it do its job?
    • Is it reusable/configurable?
    • Is it scalable?
    • Is it safe/secure?
    • Is it at the right abstraction level?
