Let us make Use Cases colorful!

For a very long time, we Requirements Engineers and Business Analysts have been using use case diagrams. Use case diagrams are pretty useful to indicate system features, actors, scope and reusable functionalities.

However, they all have been colorless - all black and white.

So we are proposing a color scheme not only to make them more colorful but also more intuitive.

The color scheme proposed is as below:

In-scope : Green

2. Out of scope : Red

3. Doubtful : Yellow

4. Misuse : Black

5. Include : Blue

6. Extend : Maroon.

Fellow requirements engineers and business analysts, let us know your thoughts on this.
