Course Description:
IS315 Computer Systems Analysis & Design I: This course presents various philosophies, terminology, and techniques used in the analysis and implementation of the system development life cycle. The student will investigate such areas as project proposals, logical systems, flow diagrams, data modeling, dictionaries, and documentation. The student will learn how to use a CASE tool. 3:0:3 Prerequisite: IS205.

Educational Philosophy:
Students will be exposed to lectures, readings, discussion threads and assignments that will explore the basic methodology for the analysis and design of computer systems.

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Identify stakeholders and describe their roles and individual needs in system development.
  2. Explain the Information Systems professional's role and the user's role in system development in order to achieve user acceptance and a solution that fits both the user's needs and satisfies the business objective.
  3. Evaluate strengths/weaknesses and applicable roles of several strategies/methodologies for design of information systems including Model Driven, RAD, Agile, OO development, and Prototyping.
  4. Evaluate problem/opportunity/directive, cause/effect and business requirements for a given problem scenario.
  5. Illustrate and explain project management life cycle, approaches to scheduling, measuring of project progress and relationship to the system development life cycle.
  6. Identify the responsibilities of the Project Manager and discuss why they are important to the success of the project.
  7. Practice systems analysis traditional tasks: Problem analysis, Requirements analysis. Decision analysis
  8. Build process and data models for analysis within the system development life cycle.
  9. Differentiate between logical and physical models.
  10. Communicate both orally and in writing as an individual and as a member of a team.


Core Assessment:

All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes.  The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a project which counts for 20% of the grade. The course project will be an information system plan for a system chosen by the student. Emphasis will be on developing the basic components of a system using system analysis tools and methodology. The system may be stand alone or integrated with other systems in the organization. Each week portions of the project will be developed including a system description, needs analysis, feasibility analysis, data analysis, process analysis, and financial analysis. Computer aided software engineering (CASE) tools will be used where needed in support of the weekly assignments. The final project document is due at the end of the course with all assignments integrated into one document.

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
