This course is the sixth of seven in the Information Systems curriculum. The purpose of the course is to build on skills acquired in the earlier courses and to provide the student with skills that enable him/her to function as a resource person. Its focus is on concepts, applications, and skills as well as on equipment familiarity needed to integrate financial, database, telecommunications/networking, records management, inventory, managerial, and administrative support systems within an organization. These components are provided for each task area: behavioral objective, suggested teaching strategies, content, and summary. Topics covered include principles of integration of various business systems with automated equipment; principles, concepts, and theories of sociotechnical analysis applied to the integrated office; data flow analysis and database review to make recommendations for selection, configuration, and installation of hardware components and applications software; evaluation of the need for, setting up of, and maintenance of a records management program; and ability to analyze, upgrade, troubleshoot, and respond to needs of end-users. Appendixes include visuals (transparencies and other teacher materials), student materials (student handouts, work sheets, and exercise materials), evaluation (end-of-task and end-of-unit questions, test items, etc.), and an eight-page list of references.
