News

Vážení studenti,

záznamy z mých loňských přednášek (čtvrtou mám z roku 2016) najdete na následující adrese:

https://video1.fit.vutbr.cz/av/

Se souhlasem Ing. Kolouška jsem vám zpřístupnil záznam jeho loňské přednášky o provozu a servisu IT. Dohodli jsme se totiž, že pokud se nebudete moci přednášky fyzicky zúčastnit, tak tuto přednášku dělat nebudeme.

S určitým zpožděním tam také budete nacházet záznamy mých letošních přednášek a také záznamy demonstračních cvičení doc. Rogalewicze. Po shlédnutí democvičení se zúčastníte příslušného on-line cvičení se svým asistentem, kde můžete diskutovat jak probírané téma tak také projekty. Nezapomeňte pak v IS FIT (přes test) potvrdit, že jste cvičení absolvovali, abyste za něj získali 4 body.

Obhajoby projektů proběhnou v 11. a 12. týdnu výuky. Až to bude aktuální, stanovíme podle situace způsob obhajoby (pokud nebude možná/vhodná obhajoba prezenčně, lze od ní upustit a projekt ohodnotit off-line nebo lze udělat obhajobu on-line v MS Teams).

Zkoušky jsou zatím plánovány pro normální situaci, přičemž jsem požádal o centrální naplánování pěti (variantních) termínů. Jak ale bude zkouškové skutečně probíhat, ví Bůh. Vyzkoušet 1068 studentů při maximálně deseti lidech v místnosti a až třech pokusech je těžko představitelné (vychází mi celkem až 356 místností/hlídačů).

Subject specific learning outcomes and competences

Student gets an overview in the area of complex software system development. Students acquaint especially with software development stages and with models of software life-time. Student makes sense of the methodics basis of the requirements analysis and the software system design. He/she learns to use chosen UML models.

Generic learning outcomes and competences

Students learn to provide analysis and design of the software systems. Students will be able to read and create basic UML models.

Learning objectives

To provide an overview and basics of the complex software system building. To acquaint with the process of software systems creation. This process is analyzed as an integration of system development, software quality assurance, and software project management. To acquaint with the development stages of the software lifetime. The consideration is focused on all development stages, mainly the requirements analysis, requirements specification, and methods of software design. To learn to use basic models of UML and to get familiarity with methodics of UML-based modelling.

Why is the course taught

Software development is a complex process that often fails. Thus, the main message of this course is to warn students about problems that they as software engineers will face when creating software. Students will learn basic analysis and design techniques for software development and language UML. A special attention is given to identification of data and their relationship that is an essential task of development of any information system.

Prerequisite kwnowledge and skills

This course takes place in a winter term of the first year of the bachelor's study programme. Thus, we expect that students have the high school level knowledge of using computers.

Syllabus of numerical exercises

  1. Requirements in UML - Use case diagram, Activity diagram and State diagram (3rd and 4th weeks, 4 points)
  2. Data modelling - ER diagram (5th and 6th weeks, 4 points)
  3. Analysis and Design in UML - Class diagram and Object diagram (7th and 8th weeks, 4 points)
  4. Analysis and Design in UML - Sequence diagram and Communication diagram (9th and 10th weeks, 4 points)

Syllabus - others, projects and individual work of students

  1. Model of an information system (24 points)

Progress assessment

Students can obtain up to 16 points from four two hours long exercises (4 points from each), 24 points from the project and up to 60 points from the final exam.

Controlled instruction

Within this course, attendance on the lectures is not monitored. Monday lecture is given for lecture group 1BIA, Friday lecture for group 1BIB. Students from lecture groups 2BIA and 2BIB can choose which lecture they attend. Students from 1BIA and 1BIB lecture groups can attend the lecture given for the other group without any permission.

The knowledge of students is evaluated within exercises, by the project and its defence and by the final exam.

Points from the exercises can be obtained only for active participation (mistakes and wrong answers are fine while avoiding the discussion and problem-solving can result in losing points).

When a student cannot attend the exercise and proves it correctly (s)he can either attend the exercise with a different group (please inform the teacher about that) or (s)he can ask his/her teacher for the alternative assignment that can compensate lost points from the exercise.

The minimal number of points which can be obtained from the final exam is 30. Otherwise, no points will be assigned to a student.

Exam prerequisites

For receiving the credit and thus for entering the exam, students have to get at least 18 points from the exercises and from the project. Plagiarism and not allowed cooperation will cause that involved students are not classified and disciplinary action may be initiated.
