Emphasis is placed on the application of quantitative and qualitative techniques to systems analysis, evaluation and performance. 3:0:3 Prerequisite: MA120.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:

System Life Cycle
If you opt not to use a topic from the above list, you may choose to do a topic that is related to something in the text book with instructor approval. Please submit the topic you have chosen to research no later than Week 2 of the class.
Papers that do not address the chosen topic, will not grade well. The paper should have a title page, abstract and reference page and be 5 full pages of written content. Writing should show college level work. Don't forget the basics; spelling, grammar, and format. It is recommended the paper must be turned in before you will be allowed to take the final examination. This paper is worth 10% of your final grade. A small presentation in week 7 will be presented to the class to highlight the important information of your research paper and is part of your overall paper grade. Your paper will be graded using a weighted grading scale matrix.
