Business Information Systems Design (3) Object-oriented concepts such as: object, instance, class, inheritance, polymorphism; application of these methodologies and design patterns to business system analysis.
MIS 442 Object Oriented Business Systems (3)
Business Information System Design provides an introduction to the logical and physical design of computer based business information systems. The course represents a natural progression from the Business Information Systems Analysis course (M I S 432). Emphasis is placed on object-oriented development paradigms for translating the system analysis results into detailed design specifications for the follow-up system implementation. The course develops a comprehensive understanding of different aspects of business information systems development, including project management, design specification, human interface design, new development methodologies, as well as the practical issues regarding system implementation, operation, and maintenance. The course also provides significant hands-on experience using current software development technologies in team-based real system development projects.
After completing this course, the student should have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to be able to:
• Explain and apply fundamental principles of systems design, implementation, operation, and maintenance in the business context.
• Effectively use system design languages and concepts to produce detailed design specifications based on system analysis outputs.
• Understand the entire life cycle of business information systems and perform effective management throughout the cycle.
• Describe basic elements of advanced topics such as outsourcing, rapid development, extreme programming, and major system development environments.
The evaluation of students will be based on tests, lab work, homework, and course project. This is a prescribed course for the M I S major. M I S 442 will be offered in the fall and spring semesters in sections ranging from 25 to 40 students.
Note : Class size, frequency of offering, and evaluation methods will vary by location and instructor. For these details check the specific course syllabus.
