A Systems Development Life Cycle Project for the AIS Class
Wang, Ting J.; Saemann, Georgia; Du, Hui
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v4 n1 p67-94 Jan 2007
The Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) project was designed for use by an accounting information systems (AIS) class. Along the tasks in the SDLC, this project integrates students' knowledge of transaction and business processes, systems documentation techniques, relational database concepts, and hands-on skills in relational database use. After completing this project, students will comprehend major steps in the process of designing, developing, and implementing a database application. Instructors can add additional and/or modify any requirements and elements based on their emphases in the process, as well as align the tasks according to the systems design approach used in the textbook. This project is constructed on the Systems Understanding Aid (SUA) manual case of Arens and Ward (2001). However, instructors can adopt any case by using the project as a template. This project can be used as a semester final project, split into parts, worked along with the systems development topics covered in class, or assigned to a second AIS course. (Contains 7 tables and 7 figures.)
