Annotation The course presents basic approaches to requirements engineering. Students learn to identify and design enterprise/business architectures and specify requirements for organisational information systems viewing people and computer systems as nodes of information processing. They learn to analyse and design information flows in organisations and organisational networks and how to develop the information logistics model. IBM requirements identification and management tools are used in the course. Acquired knowledge is beneficial not only for requirements identification for information and communication technology solutions; it is applicable also for the design of products and services in general. .
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The goal of the course is to provide knowledge and skills of requirements identification, management and documentation, as well as to provide competence in decision-making with respect to the choice of appropriate requirements engineering methods and tools.
