Singapore University of Social Sciences

Aviation/Aerospace Systems Analysis Methods (MGMT321)

Synopsis

An overview of the system development life cycle is provided in this course. Emphasis on current system documentation through the use of both classical and structured tools/techniques for describing process flows, data flows, data structures, file design, input and output designs, and program specifications.

Level: 3
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every semester
E-Learning: BLENDED - Learning is done MAINLY online using interactive study materials in Canvas. Students receive guidance and support from online instructors via discussion forums and emails. This is supplemented with SOME face-to-face sessions. If the course has an exam component, this will be administered on-campus.
