Advanced Information Modelling PG (6679.4)

Level: Postgraduate Level
Credit Points: 3
HECS Bands: 2
Faculty: Faculty of Business, Government & Law
Discipline: School of Information Systems & Accounting



    This unit examines and compares modelling techniques to come to a better understanding of the fundamental aspects of systems that the techniques attempt to capture. The unit will review traditional structured and object-oriented techniques then examine a range of advanced techniques, for example fact and role- based approaches to modelling; soft systems modelling; decision models; knowledge-based systems modelling; conceptual graphs and semantic modelling; mathematical modelling and, finally, dynamic modelling or simulation. Students will develop a comparative framework for examining these techniques.

    This unit is co-taught with unit 9100 Advanced Information Modelling.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:

    1. apply a range of techniques for modelling information and its management;

    2. appreciate the different aspects of systems that the modelling techniques address.

    Contact Hours

    3 hours per week.


    Completion of 9 credit points at graduate level.

    Assumed Knowledge

    It is assumed that students will have knowledge equivalent to a good pass in 6677 Systems Analysis and Modelling G.
