Content

In this unit, students will be introduced to the broad-based concepts of how systems are designed. As to any successful systems, analysis and design is the essential step. Of course, applying the right design methodology also contributes to the success of the system. Therefore, this unit will investigate the different methodologies for different types of systems, including procedural, object-oriented, and real-time systems. In each type of system, their issues will be discussed and shown how a specific methodology addresses them. This appreciation is important in many analyst roles in real life. In fact, there is a big demand for analysts who understand all aspects of information systems in the context of the organisation's business operations. Such analysts are often sought after in major IT consultancy firms.
