Diagramming use case/robustness analysis over a collection

Diagramming use case/robustness analysis over a collection

Diagramming use case/robustness analysis over a collection

I am to create a software system that delivers reports from a staging area to their respective final destinations.  The reports are delivered to the staging area by an external system. That external system can provide an array of report objects to my system through an api. My system would then examine this array to determine what reports to look for during this delivery cycle.

A "Deliver Reports" use case would probably start with something like:  The system selects the next Report from its Report List".  The last sentence of the basic course might read "The system then repeats this use case.  It would be stopped by the alternate course:  No Report left on Report List.

From a business perspective, it would seem that a "Deliver Report" use case, focused on a single report, would be more appropriate.  My problem is not knowing where to start such a use case.  And whether (and how) to model the need to iterate.

Perhaps I'm over-analyzing. Can anyone spare a pointer or two?
