At the end of the module students should be able to:
- Analyse and assess information users' views in a systematic manner using e.g. rich pictures, conceptual models, cognitive mapping;
- Explain how to cope with changes, identifying organisational benefits and potential problems associated with information systems implementation;
- Describe the main features of structured systems analysis methodologies:
- Explain entity modelling, normalisation, entity life histories and data flow diagrams;
- Explain the main features of some object-oriented analysis techniques;
- Develop a framework for adopting an appropriate methodology.
You will consider how users?' views can be collated and analysed, and how projects can be managed to minimise the risk of failure. The modules aims to enable you to ask the right questions of all those involved in systems analysis and design, whether technical experts, stall at all levels in the organisation or the customer of that organisation.
Planning and evaluating an information system requires an analytical approach and the module aims to show you how various methodologies have been developed to help those planners, designers and users of information systems obtain the best solution possible to an information problem.
