Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student will make sense of the basic principle of system analyze and design. Student will be able to - exploit CASE tools; - analyze the structure of IS; - build a structured model of IS.

Teaching methods


The objective of this course is manage with methods, technique and tools of system analyse a design of information systems by exploiting knowledge of system theory, traditional methods of system analyse a design of IS. Principle of this course mades structured methods (functional and data) analyse and design of information systems referring to object oriented systems.
