Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

For the remainder of 2020, resulting from Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, any exams that are required for assessment in a unit will be online exams. Online exams may also use online proctoring to help assure the academic integrity of those exams. Please contact your unit convener with any questions.

While the University has made efforts to ensure that Unit Outlines reflect a unit’s learning activities and assessment items, any changes to Australian Government directives because of the COVID-19 pandemic may require changes to these during the semester to ensure the safety and well being of students and staff. These changes will not be updated in the published unit outline, but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Any changes made will continue to meet the unit’s learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

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.

This unit may be co-taught with 11486 Systems Analysis and Modelling.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Critically analyse IT-supported complex business processes and hence derive advanced system models appropriately;

2. Use advanced abstraction techniques as a modelling device;

3. Use international standard systems description paradigms and languages;

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

5. Evaluate the role of complex systems models in the synthesis of systems; and

6. Apply advanced tools for managing complex analysis processes.
