Summary of Content:
This module is part of the Software Engineering theme in the School of Computer Science.
This course considers the activities which are required, and the tools which are available, to manage commercial software development projects. Systems analysis is presented as a way of gathering and structuring information such that the required specification corresponds closely to the users' requirements. Systems design is then presented as a technique for transforming the specification to a form in which it can be implemented. Real case studies will be used to illustrate many of the tools and techniques introduced.Module Web Links:
