Annotation The course concerns systems analysis tasks in the context of logistics information systems. It focuses on logistics information system modelling, decision analysis and organizational requirements for new solutions and changes. Functional decomposition and methods of structural analysis are includes in the course. Students learn system classifications and characteristics and general systems laws. Basics of process theory, modelling and characteristics of complex system functioning as well as organization of logistics information systems analysis process, its methods, and software-oriented notations are discussed..
