Analyzing Processes, Information and People

  • Online delivery
  • eClass

This course will explore var­i­ous analy­sis and mod­el­ling tech­niques to bet­ter under­stand the require­ments asso­ci­at­ed with peo­ple, process­es, and infor­ma­tion ele­ments in a busi­ness con­text. Basic busi­ness mod­el­ling tools such as orga­ni­za­tion mod­els, work­flow mod­els and swim-lane dia­grams are used to explore solu­tion require­ments. UML mod­els (use cas­es, state and sequence dia­grams) extend the solu­tion require­ments and estab­lish the con­text for solu­tion design. Prin­ci­ples of data and data analy­sis are intro­duced. Var­i­ous method­olo­gies are used to set a frame­work for analysis.

These courses also provide learners with pre-scheduled online lectures that have the instructor and students interacting at the same time. All components of this type of course are accessible through eClass, the University of Alberta’s eLearning management tool. for­mat details
