Subject Description
This subject provides an introduction to different techniques and technologies for understanding and specifying what a computer based information system should accomplish. It examines the complementary roles of systems analysts, clients and users in a system development life cycle. Students will learn different fact-finding techniques to elicit system requirements and how to develop business models, data and process models, and object models representing a system. Students will also make use of a Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tool to build those models that capture the specifications of a system.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Analyse the complementary roles of different stakeholders including clients, users, and analysts in the development of computer based information systems.
2. Identify system requirements using different fact-finding techniques.
3. Perform analysis of computer-based information systems, and present a system description using different modelling approaches such as data and process models, business models, and object models.
4. Demonstrate an appreciation of CASE tools as an aid to systems modelling.
5. Work in a group to apply the knowledge and skills presented in this subject to typical system analysis scenarios.
