With the completion of the Curricular Unit, students should: 1. Understand the concept of the system and its usefulness; 2. Understand the importance of alignment between business strategies and technology; 3. Know the phases of the software development process; 4. Recognize the need to use Frameworks and Reference Models; With the conclusion of the Curricular Unit the student should be able to: 5. Perform critical analysis of business business processes; 6. Identify business processes and appropriate way to support them in software; 7. Select methodologies for developing software solutions 8. Represent business processes using BPM and its standard notation: BPMN. 9. Use formal representation of business processes to optimize their use 10. Design conceptual models 11. Ensure alignment between software development and business needs.
Teaching methodologies and assessment
Classes: - Lectures with concepts, definitions and theoretical framework; - Practical classes where techniques and methods are presented; - Practical exercises accompanied by case study analysis, - Representation of business processes and software design. Assessment continues: -Frequency, 50% in the final grade; - Group work (3 to 5 students), 50% in final grade: o Real case analysis (delivered statement) with process modeling in BPMN and software in UML. -Approves with a mark greater than or equal to 10 values; minimum mark of 8 values in each evaluation component; Final Evaluation: - Students with no proficiency in Continuous Assessment; - Individual practical work; -Examination written, in Season 2; -Each assessment component contributes to the final grade with the same percentage as in the continuous assessment; -A student may be exempted from one of the final exams if he obtains an evaluation of 10 or higher in the component under continuous evaluation
