Unit Description
This unit studies the techniques, tools and methods of systems analysis in a business environment. It
aims to assist students to develop analytical skills in information requirements analysis, problem
identification, feasibility assessment, data modelling, use case analysis, specifications and
sociotechnical issues of the systems development life-cycle.
Students will learn user-centred design and task-centred design are fundamental to good systems
design. In order to understand these concepts, students will study how to determine user
requirements, and demonstrate that understanding through designing web-interfaces. Through case
studies and practical examples, students will study the phases in the systems development life cycle
(determining the user requirements, developing a systems proposal, designing the system) and
apply the key principles to the implementation of system development problems in organisations.
The organisational context of systems analysis and design and the iterative nature of the analysis
and design process will also be explored.

Academic Misconduct
Ethical conduct and academic integrity and honesty are fundamental to the mission of APIC and academic
misconduct will not be tolerated by the College. It is the responsibility of every student to make sure that they
understand what constitutes academic misconduct and to refrain from engaging in it. Please refer to APIC’s
Academic Integrity Policy for further details.
Attendance
APIC has a responsibility to ensure that all students enrolled at the College are able to make
satisfactory progress through their course, and attending scheduled classes is essential for course
progression. For onshore international students maintaining satisfactory attendance in the course
and making satisfactory progress with the course are also conditions of the student Visa. APIC
therefore monitors the attendance of all students at all scheduled classes and students are required
to attend at least 80% of scheduled for units in which they are enrolled, where attendance means
that the student is present for the whole duration of the scheduled lecture, tutorial or seminar class.
Students are advised that decisions about the award of supplementary assessments will take into
account student attendance.
Disclaimer
This unit study guide may be updated and amended from time to time. Any changes to the unit will be notified
to students through the Online Learning System (CANVAS) for the unit.
