CIS 306: Information Systems Analysis & Design
2009 Semester: Office Hours: TA for the Course: Program Name Course Code (Credit hrs) To be announced TBA Category: Spring Core

Bachelor in Computer and Information Sciences   (CIS 306) Information Systems Analysis and Design (3 Credit hrs)  1 Contact Hour is equivalent to 60 minutes.  1 Lab credit is equivalent to 3  contact hours. The  aim  of  this  course  is  to  provide  students  with  an  opportunity  to  learn  the  basic  knowledge  (knowing)  and  skills  (doing)  to  specify  and  to  develop  computer  information  systems.  The  course  will  focus  on  the  front‐end  of  the  system  development  life  cycle  (SDLC),  by  examining  in  some  details  the  techniques,  methods,  tools,  procedures,  and  methodologies  employed  by  systems  analysts  in
  the  analysis,  design  and  implementation  of  organizational  information  systems.    This  course  introduces  established  and  evolving  methodologies  for  the  analysis,  design,  and  development  of  an  information  system.  Emphasis  is  placed  on  system  characteristics,  managing  projects,  prototyping,  CASE/OOM  tools,  and  systems  development  life  cycle  phases.  Upon  completion,  students  should  be  able  to  analyze  a  problem  and  design  an  appropriate solution using a combination of tools and techniques.  The students are expected to be able to:  1. Develop  the  needed  communication  and  analytical  skills  to  solicit,  identify,  analyze  and  refine  loosely  structured  user  requirements  to  produce  a  meaningful  system  design  specification.  Describe  the  key  concepts,  major  objectives, task set, and tools used in each phase of the SDLC.  2. Distinguish  between  the  different  software  process  models  (waterfall,  iterative, prototyping, spiral), and describe their characteristics.  3. Describe  the  major  systems  development  methodologies  (SADT,  RAD,  JAD,  participatory,  OOAD  etc.)  of  systems  development  and  the  criteria  for  their  selection.  4. Communicate with potential systems users effectively and professionally, to  elicit, clarify, define and refine user requirements.  5. Conduct  an  analysis  of  the  information  requirements  of  an  organization  to  model its information processing needs.  6. Produce  appropriate  system  specifications  and  documentation  at  each  phase of the system development life cycle. This will include but not limited  to input and output screens, forms, queries, reports and user dialogues.

7. Demonstrate  the  ability  to  use  the  different  systems  analysis  &  design  diagramming  techniques  including:  data  flow  diagrams  (DFD),  entity  relationship  diagrams  (ERD),  structure  charts,  pseudo‐code,  decision  tress  and tables, use‐case diagrams, class diagrams etc.  8. Demonstrate  the  ability  to  use  project  management  tools,  such  as  PERT,  CPM, and Gantt chart to manage a project.  9. Produce  a  project  plan  that  is  both  feasible  and  conformance  to  systems  requirements,  including  the  conduct  of  a  formal  feasibility  or  break‐even  analysis.  10. Conduct a real‐life systems project in a team environment.  11. Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively in both written and oral  forms during systems development progress report sessions.
