Learning Outcomes

The student will be able to conduct a software design review using appropriate guidelines. Furthermore create and specify the software design for a medium-size software product using a software requirement specification, an accepted program design methodology (object oriented), and appropriate design notation. The student gains knowledge in object oriented systems development emphasizing requirements, analysis and design.

Student's Workload

6 x 27h = 162 h
Lectures and coaching: approx. 77h
Self studies - weekly assignments: approx. 40h
Self studies, reading theory and taking exams: approx. 25h
Self studies, Project Work using UML: approx. 20 h

Prerequisites / Recommended Optional Courses

Previous knowledge in systems planning corresponding to the goals in the course "Datasystem och systemarbete"


Through theoretic studies of object oriented concepts, modelling techniques, methods etc and a practical project dealing with requirements, analysis and design, the student will get acquainted with the object oriented way of thinking and UML and gain knowledge about how to work in an object oriented systems development project. The course deals with issues like: Development process lifecycle; Systems development models and methods; Development tools; Standards ; System Requirements Analysis and Design; Process, tasks, and deliverables; Object Oriented Analysis; UML and CASE tools; Quality assurance: inspection and reviews and Transition from analysis to design.
