It gives a fundamental overview of the effective analysis, design and implementation of business-related problems. It also concentrates on requirements definition, system feasibility and design and implementation considerations utilizing the traditional SDLC methodology. A case study approach is used to provide students with an opportunity to practice required skills and knowledge in a simulated real-world environment with a focus on teamwork. Typical business problems are dealt with at length. Analysis tools are employed to document an existing system from both a physical and logical perspective. The course will also utilize a CASE tool in the preparation of system documentation and diagrams.
