BUS S 310 Systems Analysis and Project Management (3 cr.) P: I-Core. Analysis of
an organization and the subsequent design of solutions to meet business requirements
are at the heart of the information systems field. This course follows a structured
process called the systems development life cycle that companies use to identify
and solve business problems, although alternative methodologies are also covered.
Students learn tools and techniques for conducting projects, including how to gather
system requirements, how to construct models of business processes using data flow
diagrams, and the role of computer-aided software engineering (CASE) technology.
While S310 emphasizes the system analyst role, all business students will benefit
from the ability to analyze the processes, data, and computer systems they will
encounter in their work as well as the knowledge of how to work with the system
analyst to define strategic business solutions.
