The primary goal is to prepare students to identify, design, develop and deploy information systems more efficiently and effectively using various system development approaches. Course Objectives: The objective of this course is to examine the process of system analysis and design. Both the structured and object-oriented techniques of analysis and design are studied. The system development life cycle is introduced to gain an overall perspective on system development. The specific learning objectives that the student will achieve from taking this course are to: • Determine organizational information requirements through interviews and company document analysis • Understand current structured methodologies for systems analysis and design of information systems -- data flow diagrams, entity relationship diagrams, data dictionaries, structured chart • Learn current object-oriented techniques for analysis and design -- use cases, class diagrams, sequence diagrams • Learn the importance of implementing software security measures during the analysis, design, coding, and implementation phases. • Understand the process of managing a systems development project. • Learn different methodologies used in SA&D (e.g. SDLC, agile approaches, Object Oriented SA&D with UML) and when to use them. • Understand the three roles of the systems analyst as consultant, supporting expert, and agent of change • Learn the ethical issues and professional guidelines for serving as a systems consultant • Be able to address the correct problem before designing the system. These objectives will be approached using a combination of lectures, readings, systems analysis exercises, and class discussions.
