OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

IS3003 BuildingInformationSystems Chapter 12 DIFFERENT WAYS OF DEVELOPING INFORMATION SYSTEMS 1. PROBLEM SOLVING AND SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT a. IS as Solutions to Problems  i. 4 steps to building and IS  1. Define and understand problem  2. Develop alternative solutions  3. Choose solution  4. Implement that solution  ii. The first 3 steps are ​system analysis  iii. The last step (implementing the solution) is ​systems design  b. System Development (Problem Solving Approach)  i. Step 1: Defining and Understanding the problem  1. What caused the problems  2. Why does it persist?  3. Why hasn't it been solved?  4. What are the objectives of a solution?  5. Conduct a Requirement Analysis to determine the ​Information  Requirements​ of the new system.  ○ The more time and money spent on Step 1, the more likely  you are to be satisfied and get the results you want.  ii. Step 2: Develop Alternative Solutions  1. Develop alternative solutions to achieve the objectives and  Information Requirements​ that were identified  2. Some solutions do not require an information system  3. Some solutions require modification of existing systems  4. Some solutions require a new system.  iii. Step 3: Evaluating and Choosing Solutions  1. Conduct a ​Feasibility Study​ to determine whether each alternative is  feasible and achievable  ○ Is the solution feasible from financial, technical, and  organizational standpoint?  1 2. Design a​ systems proposal report­ ​Describes, for each alternative  solution:  ○ Costs and benefits  ○ Advantages and disadvantages  iv. Step 4: Implementing the Solution  1. Systems design stage:​ Systems design is the detailed design, model or  blueprint for the system  ○ This includes:  i. Hardware selection and acquisition  ii. Software development and programming  iii. Testing  iv. Training and documentation  v. Conversion  vi. Production and Maintenance  vii. Managing the Change  2. Training and Documentation  ○ Training:​ For successful implementation to occur, users will  require training so they will be able to use the new system.  Different types of training are available: online, face to face,  built in help features, etc  ○ Documentation:​ Shows how the system works from both a
