Information system testing, operational and ethics | My Assignment Tutor

5/1/2021 Laureate International Universities 1/5MODULE 6Information system testing,operational and ethicsIntroduction:We are now at the end of the system development life cycle. In previousmodules, we discussed requirement elicitation, systems analysis andsystems design. In this Õnal module, we will focus on the Õnal stage of thesystem development life cycle, that is, systems implementation andoperation. Systems implementation and operation is normally the mostexpensive as well as the longest phase in the systems development lifecycle.5/1/2021 Laureate International Universities 2/5This phase typically involves many people, for example, developers, testers,trainer, IT support etc. Seven processes are conducted in this stage:CodingTestingInstallationDocumentationTrainingSupportMaintenanceCoding translates the systems design to working computer code and istypically undertaken by software developers. Testing is concerned withverifying users’ requirements. Testing is usually undertaken by dedicatedsoftware testers. You should note that testing is undertaken in parallel withcoding, that is, as long as a “unit” of code is completed, it is then can betested. You will learn about the various strategies, types and levels of testingin this module. Please note that the purpose of this subject is not to trainyou to become a software programmer or tester. Therefore, you should notfocus on the technical details in programming or testing instead you arerequired to understand the overall processes of coding and testing.Installation is the process of deploying the developed software on physicalmachine and replacing the current systems. You will learn about the fourdiàerent approaches to installation in this module. Throughout the systemsdevelopment lifecycle, many documents will be produced, for example,requirements speciÕcation and design speciÕcation. However, in thesystems implementation and operation, the process of documentation willreceive formal attention and thus will produce a large number ofdocuments to hand over to customers and users. You will read about thediàerent types of documents produced at this stage of the lifecycle. Systemsdevelopment life cycle does not end with the installation of the developedsystem. It continues to provide training and IT support to the users as well5/1/2021 Laureate International Universities 3/5as the maintenance of the system. This means that you will also learn theissue tracking and ticketing tools to support users.In the second half of this module, you will learn about the professionalstandards and the code of conduct. The Australian Computer Society (ACS)Code of Conduct requires ACS members to comply with the following sixACS values:The primacy of the public interestThe enhancement of quality of lifeHonestyCompetenceProfessional developmentProfessionalismYou will read the ACS Code of Conduct in detail and make a judgement as towhat is the best action to take under an ethical dilemma. Should you alwaysfollow the chain of command if you have been told to perform a legal butunethical action? You will examine a number of moral frameworks and learnto apply them in diÞcult situations.This Module will cover:Module 6.1 – Information system implementation and operationModule 6.2 – Professional standards, ethical and legal behaviourThis Module will help you achieve the followingoutcomes:c) Demonstrate the ability to eàectively analyse, design and developinformation systems using UniÕed Modelling Language (UML) models.d) Demonstrate team work skills and empathy while maintaining highlevel of ethical and legal behaviour and standards as a professional.5/1/2021 Laureate International Universities 4/5Time Management:Your workload expectation is 20 hours for this module.12 Week Delivery:20 hours per module (two weeks): facilitated study: 3 hours / week.Personal Study: 7 hours / week.3 hours facilitated study consists of attending class, responding tofacilitator feedback.You are to allocate 7 hours of personal learning. This includesessential time spent on pre-reading and viewing materials,assessment progression and learning activities.Assessment Progression:Assessment 3 is due at the end of Module 6.1. Please refer to theassessment briefs in the assessment area for more detail.Class Expectation:You are expected to have worked through the essential learningresources and activities for this module before attending thefacilitated session (face to face or online session) – this enablesinformed discussion and full participation in learning activities.Participate in all scheduled facilitated sessions.This time is intended to be used by you and your learningfacilitator to work through activities and engage in discussionabout the module content.These sessions provide a space for you to raise questionsabout the module content and seek guidance on writing yourassessments.You will review, explore and discuss more deeply theinformation presented in the learning resources.5/1/2021 Laureate International Universities 5/5
