Emphasis is placed on the application of quantitative and qualitative techniques to systems analysis, evaluation and performance. Prerequisite: MA120. 3:0:3Educational Philosophy: The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of active participation between the facilitator and the students based on readings, lectures, discussions, and examinations. The facilitator will encourage each student to express their ideas and demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the subject matter.Learning Outcomes: Core Learning OutcomesDefine a system. The students should include the classifications of systems (natural, human-made, physical, conceptual, static, dynamic, closed and open) definitions and elements.Explain the system design process. The students should include in their discussions conceptual system design; preliminary system design, detail design and development; and system test and evaluation.Describe several decisions and models in decision making as related to systems analysis. The student should calculate expected value, laplace, maximin, maximax, present value, future value, and break even analysis.Explain and apply queuing theory. The student should be able to evaluate a single channel queuing model.Explain the factors involved in designing for operational feasibility. Discussions should include reliability, maintainability, usability, supportability, producibility, disposability and lifecycle cost.Describe a System Engineering Management Plan (SEMP).Core Assessment:
Class Assessment: In addition to reading text materials prior to discussion in meetings and adequate attendance, requirements for successfully completing the course are as follows:
• HOMEWORK: Five (5) homework assignments will be reviewed for credible effort and accomplishment.
• QUIZZES: Five (5) quizzes will be given during the course. They are designed to provide current feedback to both the student and the instructor. There will be no quiz make-ups.
• EXAMINATIONS: Two (2) examinations will be given at appropriate course milestones as indicated in the course outline. A mid-term examination will be given during the 4th week, and a final examination will be given during the 8th week. Examinations will consist of multiple choice, True/False, and essay questions, and may require the interpretation and solution of problems. Make-up tests will be permitted only when prior arrangements are made and/or when the circumstances are explained to the instructor's satisfaction. Grading: Each student will be graded on academic achievement as follows:
Final numerical rating will be calculated based on:
Homework 250 pts (10 x 25 pts each)
Quizzes 250 pts (5 x 50 pts each)
Mid-Term Exam 200 pts
Final Exam 300 pts
Final course letter grades will be assigned as follows:
A 940 - 1000 94 - 100%
B 870 - 939 87 - 93%
C 800 - 869 80 - 86%
D 730 - 799 73 - 79%
F < 729 72% or lower The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.

Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Professional conduct is expected by all students at all times, as well as tolerance and acceptance of other ideas and beliefs. A credible level of effort appropriate to the course material is expected. Although this will vary from student to student due to work or personal events, it is the responsiblity of the student to be adequately prepared for all class sessions. Students are expected to communicate with the instructor regarding absences, perceived deficiencies in coursework performance, etc. Park University policies regarding academic honesty/plagiarism will be strictly enforced. Any indication of cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers, or other course assignments will not be tolerated. Plagiarism is the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as their own work, and sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult the instructor. Absences: The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment. What determines an excused absence other than TAD or medical reason is up to the instructor's discretion. THREE unexcused absences will result in a grade of "F." This is the official Park University policy. Please note that for an absence to be an officially excused absence, (1) the instructor must agree and (2) the student must provide documentation.
