In this course, students will learn to apply the tools and techniques commonly used by systems analysts to build and document IT applications. Classical and structured tools for describing data flow, data structure, process flow, file design, input and output design, and program specification will be studied, as will object-oriented techniques. Pre-Requisites: WBIT 1310 with a minimum grade of C AND WBIT 2000 with a minimum grade of C Course Learning Objectives Define the discipline of Systems Analysis and Design, contrasting the Analysis component with the Design component. Be able to compare and contrast the different participants in the process, with special emphasis on the role of the analyst as a facilitator of systems work and the interaction of the analyst with the other participants Understand the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in the form of a systems development methodology Understand various project management techniques, especially the use of MS Project as a project management tool Demonstrate an understanding in the use of various Systems Analysis techniques, including: logical system modeling; fact-finding techniques; modeling system requirements with Use Cases; Data Modeling and entity-relationship diagrams; Process Modeling and data flow diagrams; creating a Feasibility Analysis and System Proposal; and Modeling with UML Demonstrate an understanding in the use of various System Design techniques, including: Application and Architecture Modeling; Database Design; Output Design and Prototyping; User Interface Design; and Object-Oriented Modeling using the UML Understand the concepts of System Construction and Implementation Textbook Information Title: Modern Systems Analysis and Design Edition: the 7th edition Authors: Hoffer, George, and Valacich ISBN: 978-0-13-299130-8 Type: Required resource Instructor Contact Policy Via e-mail:M-F via D2L e-mail.
