    Syllabus

    This unit applies the theory of information systems analysis and modelling to the specification of IT-supported organisational systems. It integrates the students' knowledge of database design and human-computer interaction with functional and situational requirements to produce coherent systems specification. It describes and demonstrates the tools and techniques used to formally describe what an information system is to do, and the methods used by information systems analysts to construct these descriptions. The process of domain modelling is considered from vague systems conceptualisation using soft systems techniques through a process of refinement and verification to a Unified Modelling Language (UML) based specification for the technical system and a design for the organisational system. It examines the role of analysis and modelling in various systems development life cycles.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students should be able to:

    1. Analyse IT-supported processes and hence derive appropriate system models;

    2. Use abstraction as a modelling device;

    3. Use international standard systems description paradigms and languages;

    4. Explain the role of analysis within various systems development life cycles;

    5. Understand the role of systems models in the synthesis of systems; and

    6. Apply tools for managing analysis processes.
