A Universal Approach to Systems Analysis and Design
Live Instructor-Led Classroom Training
This is a 5-day workshop for information systems personnel. The workshop deals with structured analysis and design techniques that are the basis for all the current methods and tools. This workshop will complement and support product and tool specific training and can be used with all known methodologies. The workshop itself is methodology neutral.
At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to analyze a new or existing system project and develop a complete and accurate requirements specification in the shortest possible time. Working from the requirements definition, participants will then be able to create a design specification using several design techniques and modeling strategies. The latest analysis techniques are combined with effective, proven modeling methods to handle different design situations and projects. The material is based on practical and effective methods that have evolved from many years of experience with software projects.
The workshop is heavily "hands on" (about 65%). There are no automated tools; all work is simulation of real situations and done in teams relying heavily on group interaction.
Who Should Attend
This workshop is extremely helpful for systems project leaders, systems analysts and designers, software engineers and data administrators who are involved in developing requirements specifications and design specifications.
- Identify scope boundaries and develop a high-level view of a project.
- Identify the structure of the application area or system under study.
- Analyze, define and model the processes and data.
- Use rules and structure to test the results.
- Understand the various methods of gathering information.
- Create a clear, complete and accurate requirements specification.
- Understand how the requirements specification components support the design.
- Understand the design processes that will follow the analysis phase.
- Segregate the design tasks into the principal design areas.
- Create an interface design using one of several techniques.
- Create a process architecture using one of several techniques.
- Create a data architecture.
