Course Material. A textbook is not assigned for this course. We will use online resources and several handouts and videos I have developed for this course. Hoffer, J. George, J. Valacich, Prentice Hall. A copy of this book is in the BC lab and available for use while you're in the lab if you want an additional source of information about analysis and design.
Course Syllabus. IT Systems analysis. Object-oriented information system modeling will be surveyed. User-centered oriented and object-oriented system design. Course materials will primarily be provided in the PDF file format.
Additional materials, updated as needed by Professor de Neufville, can be found there. This subject focuses on the flexible design of engineering systems. It recognizes that the future is necessarily uncertain, and that we need to deliver good value for the range of possible scenarios. Flexible designs enable system operators to adapt their project to future circumstances, to avoid downside risks and to take advantage of upside opportunities. Many researchers and practitioners believe that flexible design will revolutionize the way we develop and manage complex projects.
This course is part of a series of courses to teach the systems analysts of tomorrow. As such, it requires a good background in computers. As noted in the General Class Policies below, prerequisites are strictly enforced.
The MIS application development process the systems life cycle will be covered in detail starting from the planning phase to the implementation phase. Students are required to do a term team project.
Systems development is systematic process which includes phases such as planning, analysis, design, deployment, and maintenance. It is a process of collecting and interpreting facts, identifying the problems, and decomposition of a system into its components. System analysis is conducted for the purpose of studying a system or its parts in order to identify its objectives. It is a problem solving technique that improves the system and ensures that all the components of the system work efficiently to accomplish their purpose. It is a process of planning a new business system or replacing an existing system by defining its components or modules to satisfy the specific requirements. Before planning, you need to understand the old system thoroughly and determine how computers can best be used in order to operate efficiently. The word System is derived from Greek word Systema, which means an organized relationship between any set of components to achieve some common cause or objective.
The goal of the ISQA graduate certificate program in systems analysis and design is to allow post-baccalaureate students and working professionals to expand their educational background and complete work that could count towards a graduate degree. The graduate certificate program offers existing technical and managerial professionals the chance to improve and hone their communication skills to aide in their professional development. The systems analysis and design certificate will provide students with the advanced technical, organizational and managerial background to become systems or business analysts and software developers.
This module introduces the students to the concepts and skills of system analysis and design. It includes expanded coverage of data flow diagrams, data dictionary.
