COURSE DESCRIPTION

Modern organizations are critically dependent on information systems. It is difficult to find any organizational unit, process, or task that does not rely on some sort of information system (IS, system). Systems enable organizations to perform efficiently and effectively as well to run business globally and to engage in new ways of organizing. Examples include systems for managing purchasing orders, customer relationships, inventory, production, human resources, accounting, supply chains, and various Internet-based systems for supporting electronic commerce.

This course educates students in fundamentals of systems analysis and design (SA&D). The analysis part in SA&D aims at understanding organizational processes and their informational aspects in order to define possibilities of improving process efficiency and effectiveness. The design part in SA&D is focused on creating solutions for the improvement of processes and supporting IS.

SA&D can be a particular job performed by a systems analyst, a special occupation in the systems area. SA&D is also useful for other professionals in the systems or related area, such as business analyst, data analyst, database administrator, end-user specialist, decision analyst, software engineer, and various Internet-centric jobs. Other management disciplines benefiting from SA&D, include supply chain, operations management, human resources, marketing, etc.

After completing the course, the students will be able to use the knowledge of SA&D both in the professional context and in everyday life. The course will combine lecturing, class discussion, class exercises, and lab practice. The course uses the modern SA&D methodologies based on object orientation and Unified Modeling Language. 

COURSE OBJECTIVES

With completion of the course, the students will be able

  • To use process and data analysis in organization;
  • To understand relationships between IS and organization;
  • To understand systems development methodologies;
  • To use object orientation and other IS modeling techniques;
  • To create various system diagrams for creating SA&D documentation;
  • To conduct application software domain analysis and define IS requirements;
  • To design processes, data, user interface and other IS aspects;
  • To assess feasibility of IS;
  • To use software for managing system development projects;
  • To use software for creating documentation for SA&D.

COURSE FORMAT

 

To facilitate the achievement of the course’s goals, these study activities and assignments will be deployed:

 

·        Lecturing and class discussion based on the readings and student interest.

 

·        Class exercises on analysis and diagramming (not graded, but essential to completing the learning cycle).

 

·        Hands-on training in the computer laboratory for using a system analyst’s software.

 

Detailed instructions for each of the above will be released on appropriate dates via the links displayed in Calendar.

ASSIGNMENTS AND GRADING

Your final grade will be based on these components:

The final grade will be based on a sum of normalized grades on the evaluation criteria. Any assignment containing characteristics of plagiarism will be graded with an F. If a student is not sure what constitutes a plagiarized content, the student should consult with the instructor. Assignments used in other courses, whether in this or other schools/departments cannot be reused in this course.

Late assignments, unless justified 48 hours prior to their deadlines, will receive negative points of -10% per day (the late day starts with the due date and time of the respective assignment). Make-up exams can be allowed only in exceptional situations, such as a serious illness.
