ITC203 Object Oriented Systems Analysis and Design (8)

UML (Unified Modelling Language) is used to document requirements, analysis and design activities that are part of an iterative and incremental development process. Within this subject, students will learn how to produce UML analysis and design diagrams, to analyse and verify software system requirements, and to produce and verify UML analysis and design models. Students will also learn how to evaluate and select the most appropriate design patterns for use in a software system.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this subject, students should:
  • be able to describe and apply an iterative incremental software development process;
  • be able to analyse and verify system requirements;
  • be able to produce and verify analysis and design models for a system;
  • be able to evaluate a problem and determine the appropriate architectural style for the solution;
  • be able to evaluate and choose appropriate software design patterns to compose the design of a software system;
  • be able to demonstrate use of a Computer Aided Software Engineering (CASE) tool to document the models in a system.
