along with systems engineers or software developers, identify the needs or requirements of a client; having identified these requirements they are then in a position to design a solution.In short Identifying the needs for a new project i.e. the main job of a BA or the most vital part of the whole deal is to gather the RIGHT requirements, thus it should be done with utmost care and precision.

Mock up'sPrototypes are mock ups of the screens of an application which allow users to visualize the application that isn't yet constructed. Prototypes help users get an idea of what the system will look like, and make iteasier for users to make design decisions without waiting for the system to be builtBrainstorming - This involves identifying as many ideas as possible and ranking the ideas into those considered most useful by the groupUse Cases - This is a picture of actions a system performs, depicting the actors.
