Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:
  • be able to describe the context of an information system;
  • be able to discuss and describe processes to systems analysis;
  • be able to compare the range of requirements gathering techniques;
  • be able to describe and apply feasibility study methods and approaches;
  • be able to develop system requirements models;
  • be able to demonstrate the ability to use the tools and techniques of object oriented and structured systems modelling.


The subject will cover the following topics:
  • Introduction to information systems.
  • Approaches to system analysis (object oriented and structured).
  • Processes to systems analysis (i.e. system development life cycle, iterative, Rational Unified Process).
  • Problem definition.
  • Feasibility analysis.
  • Requirements gathering.
  • Requirements specification (i.e. functional and nonfunctional).
  • Events, use cases and test cases.
  • System requirements models (i.e. analysis of class diagrams and data flow diagrams).
  • Unified Modeling Language (UML) and case tools.
