MGMT 6170 - Advanced Systems Analysis and Design

This is an advanced course in systems analysis and design that presents conceptual material about both traditional approaches to systems development such as process oriented and data-oriented methodologies and evolving approaches such as object-oriented development methods. Key stages of the systems development life cycle including planning, analysis, and design are the focus of this course. Models and procedures for understanding and modeling an organization’s existing and planned information systems are presented. Computer-aided software engineering tools are used to provide hands-on experience in designing information systems. A case-based approach is used to provide students an opportunity to apply the analytical and design techniques covered in the course. In addition, students are expected to do a real-life systems development project. The course also focuses on the issues and challenges in managing systems development.

Prerequisites/Corequisites: Prerequisite: MGMT 6140 or equivalent.

When Offered: Spring term annually.
