Subject outline

In this unit students are introduced to the concept of an information system (IS). It deals with the systems development life cycle as a framework for IS development and emphasises the role and involvement of users in an IS project. The use of appropriate fact-finding techniques in systems analysis and an introduction to data flow and E-R modelling are covered. Several information system case studies are used to illustrate the concepts introduced. Students will receive hands-on experience in the construction of a small information system using a suitable prototyping tool. The subject also introduces file design, input/output/interface design, file conversion and implementation techniques.
