COMP 2831 - Business Analysis and Systems Design

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

School of Computing and Academic Studies

Course Details

Business Analysis and Systems Design is the study of concepts, processes and tools that professionals use to plan and develop information systems to industry standards. COMP 2831 continues the established Systems Analysis tradition and provides the foundation for all BCIT Computing development credentials. Students learn how to ask implicit questions, to create and document communication plans and to make better decisions prior to creating an information system. Beginning with an introduction to the SDLC, Software Development Life Cycle, students work in teams to initiate the system process, analyze problems, discover requirements and create a logical design. Topics include: techniques used in the discovery of business requirements, traditional approaches to data and process modelling. There is an overview of Object Oriented Modelling techniques using the Unified Modelling Language (UML) as well as an introduction to Project Management. Agile frameworks including XP, Extreme Programming, and SCRUM are also introduced. Students learn to work in groups to provide detailed written materials and make presentations of their designs. By the end of this course, successful participants will be able to use industry standard tools and methods to analyze, design, and implement information systems. Students who complete COMP 2831 will be prepared to move on to COMP 2833 Agile Software Development with Scrum and the Agile Development Associate Certificate.

Prerequisite(s)

COMP 1630 or COMP 1409 or equivalent knowledge, plus the ability to work in groups and to communicate in business English.
