  • 1. THE UNIVERSITY OF HONG KONG FACULTY OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS School of Business Course Outline for Semester II of 2009-10 BUSI10059: Information Systems Analysis and Design I. INFORMATION ON INSTRUCTOR AND TUTOR Instructor: Ms. Ada Wong Email: isada@business.hku.hk Web: http://www.fbe.hku.hk/~adawong/busi0059/ Office Hours: By appointment Instructor for Tutorial Sessions: Miss Debbie Chu Office Location: Room 724, Meng Wah Complex Office Telephone: 2241-5166 Email: debbie@business.hku.hk II. COURSE INFORMATION Prerequisite BUSI1003 Course Description This course aims to develop an understanding of the concepts of systems analysis and design. Various systems development methodologies will be elaborated and discussed. CASE tools will be demonstrated to illustrate how to construct a variety of systems design documents (e.g., data flow diagrams, entity- relationship diagrams and use cases). Issues of systems implementation will be discussed. This course will use a combination of lectures, laboratory sessions, and projects. The lectures will cover important concepts, issues, and case studies on the topics discussed. The laboratory sessions will teach students knowledge and techniques using CASE tools to design information systems as required in the course. Topics to be covered in the lecture include: • Introduction to Systems Analysis and Design • Systems Development Methodology • Requirements Analysis • Use Case Analysis • Process Modeling (Data Flow Diagrams) • Data Modeling (Entity-Relationship Diagrams) • System Design • Architecture Design • User Interface Design • Managing Implementation • UML Modelling Course Objectives  To learn the basic concepts of information systems analysis, design and implementation 1
  • 2.  To learn the major alternative methodologies used in developing information systems and the consideration involved in choosing which methodology to use  To learn how to use various information gathering techniques for eliciting user information requirements and system expectations  To learn how to use the CASE tools to support business analysis and systems design  To learn how to construct and interpret a variety of system design documents, including data flow diagram, entity-relationship diagrams  To work in teams effectively Course Learning Outcomes After taking this course, students should be able to: 1. Describe and explain the concepts of information systems analysis and design 2. Evaluate and apply different information systems analysis and design methodologies to support systems development 3. Apply various information gathering techniques for eliciting user information requirements and system expectations 4. Describe and explain the concepts and issues concerned with implementing information systems 5. Describe and explain how to use CASE tools to support systems analysis and design 6. Construct and interpret a variety of system design documents, including data flow diagram, entity- relationship diagrams Alignment of Program and Course Outcomes Program Learning Outcomes Course Learning Outcomes 1. Acquisition and internalization of knowledge of 1,2,3,4,5,6 business and information systems 2. Application and integration of knowledge of business 1,3,4 and information systems 3. Inculcating professionalism and instilling leadership 3,4,5,6 skills 4. Developing global outlook 1,4 Required Text A. Dennis, B.H. Wixom, D. Tegarden (2009) Systems Analysis and Design with UML Wiley, ISBN: 978-0-470-07478-7 (Third Edition) The class notes and other supporting materials can be downloaded from: http://www.fbe.hku.hk/~adawong 2
  • 3. III. TEACHING AND LEARNING ACTIVITIES Teaching and learning activities for this course include: • Lectures: Basic concepts and knowledge will be presented in-class through powerpoint slides. • In-class case studies: MIS case studies will be discussed in class. Students are encouraged to participate in discussions and share their opinions with their peers. These discussions will help students apply their concept and knowledge to solve business problems. • Demonstration: Live demonstrations of software and technologies will be done in class to show students how they work. • Guest seminars: Guest seminars will be conducted for selected topics. Students are required to attend the seminar, participate in discussion, and share their ideas with the guests based on the topics discussed. Guest seminars offer students opportunities to meet professionals and understand how they manage information systems in their organizations. • Lab session assignments: Students accomplish tasks using technologies covered in class. Through the assignments they can acquire hands-on experience using these technologies. • Examination: Mid-term test examine students’ knowledge of the topics covered in class and their application of the knowledge. IV. ASSESSMENT Each learning outcome in a course should be assessed. A matrix can be a helpful way to check that the learning outcomes, teaching and learning activities, and assessment tasks are aligned. Students can see the direct relevance of the activities and can see that they are being assessed on what is relevant and what they have been covering in the course. Learning Outcomes Teaching and Learning Activities Assessment Describe and explain the Lectures, software demonstrations, Attendance, participation in concepts of information in-class case studies, lab sessions, discussions, assignments, systems analysis and design group project, and exams examination Evaluate and apply different Lectures, in-class case studies, lab Attendance, participation in information systems analysis sessions, group project, and exams discussions, assignments, and design methodologies to examination support systems development Apply various information Lectures, in-class case studies, lab Attendance, participation in gathering techniques for sessions, group project, and exams discussions, assignments, eliciting user information examination requirements and system expectations Describe and explain the Lectures, in-class case studies, lab Attendance, participation in concepts and issues sessions, group project, and exams discussions, assignments, concerned with examination implementing information 3

PROCESS FOR EVALUATION Lab session assignments 20% Group Project 30% Mid-term test 20% Individual Class Participation 30% ================================ Total 100% Laboratory (20%) Students will be given laboratory assignment to be accomplished in each laboratory session. Project (30%) This will be a team exercise. You are required to form groups of five to six students to conduct systems analysis and design for an organization in Hong Kong. This will require you to carry out visits and interviews with information systems personnel in the organization. You will need to first submit a proposal of what you are going to do for approval prior to conducting your studies. When finished, you will need to submit a report. Detailed instructions will be given in due course. Mid-term test (20%) This will be a 60-minute written test with closed books and no notes, and will cover materials discussed in class from Week 1 to Week 5. Individual Class Participation (30%) This will be graded according to students’ overall learning attitude, their participation and contribution during lectures, laboratory sessions and guest seminars. V. COURSE POLICIES • Project reports are to be turned in on or before 5:00 pm of the due date. Late reports will have points taken off (10% of base mark per day). 4
  • 5. • The mid-term is not to be missed unless under exceptional cases. • Attendance of all lectures is not mandatory but strongly encouraged, and the questions in the mid- term will cover topics discussed in the lectures. • Plagiarism and copying of copyright materials are serious offences and may lead to disciplinary actions.
