This project-based paper covers advanced topics in information systems development, while emphasising their application during an actual information systems development project. Students organise themselves into small working groups, then locate an organisation and problem appropriate to address through the development of an information system. During the paper, students will follow the phases and perform the tasks of systems planning, analysis, design and implementation. In doing so,
they must submit reports, conduct reviews, demonstrate prototypes developed, and make formal presentations at the appropriate milestones during the semester.
The paper will be of interest to those majoring in computer science and information systems and also to students in other Faculties who wish to deepen their understanding of information systems design beyond that
covered in COMP219 Database Practice and Experience, and to obtain hands-on experience with these systems in a real business environment.
