Systems Analysis, Modeling, and Design – BMIS 530

CG • Section 8WK • 11/08/2019 to 04/16/2020 • Modified 07/28/2020

Course Description

The course will provide a practical look at the current methodologies and design techniques necessary for system implementation, operation and maintenance. These include the systems development life cycle (SDLC), rapid application development (RAD), agile development, object-oriented analysis and design, prototyping, visual development and the human computer interface (HCI).

Rationale

The purpose of this course is to provide the student with skills in various computer systems modeling and design processes, along with business awareness, in order to facilitate the alignment of technology and its functions within business. This course will cover the concepts, skills, methodologies, techniques, tools, and perspectives that are needed for the systems analyst to successfully develop information systems that align with a business’s overall organizational strategy. It is important for the student who will be a future IT or business professional to understand the role IT systems play in supporting organizations and management initiatives in order to ensure that IT systems can fulfill their intended role within the organization.

Measurable Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

    1. Discuss the relevance of course material and the use of technology to a biblical worldview.
    2. Explain the various stages and methods of the systems development life cycle.
    3. Analyze modern conceptual modeling techniques for systems analysis and design.
    4. Apply rapid application development methodologies.
    5. Construct an object-oriented analysis, design, and system prototype.
    6. Illustrate the management issues involved in systems analysis and design.

Course Assignment

Textbook readings and lecture presentations/notes

Course Requirements Checklist

After reading the Course Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in Module/Week 1.
