INFORMATION SYSTEMS

CSE1ISX

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject, students are introduced to the concept of an information system (IS) including file design, input/output/interface design, file conversion and implementation techniques. This subject deals with 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.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

Graduate Capabilities

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Describe the Systems Development Life Cycle approach and apply it in Information Systems (IS development.
02. Use a generalised model to analyse, identify and effectively describe the components of simple real-life IS cases.
03. Use established fact finding techniques to elicit IS requirements for simple business scenarios and create requirements documents.
04. Use graphical representation such as Data Flow Diagrams and System Dictionary to adequately report on the requirements for simple IS cases.
05. Develop simple relational database design using Entity Relationship diagram for simple IS cases.
06. Design and construct a simple IS using a prototyping tool and critique the design of its user interface and implement the necessary security requirements for the new IS.
