|The course has a dynamic setting, rich of cases study, as far as it is concerned to the Operations Support Systems and the Databases. Concerning to the Management Support Systems and the Enterprise 2.0 paradigm, in particular, the course has an innovative structure. There are also simulations for Innovative Systems'' design. Concerning the project management, the course gives the main knowledge for the software projects management in the creation of a Business Information System, with particular attention to the management activities, planning and timetable, risk management, people management, costs estimation, improvement of the processes, to the management of quality and configurations.|
|Verification of learning|
|There are two parts in the exam: a road test and an oral one. The road test consists of a deep study concerning the methodological/technological themes in the Information Systems'' world. The editing of an R&D project is required. The basic themes, to be studied, are indicated during the course and they can be modified according to the scientific and technological trends. The oral test verifies the accomplished the study. It is evaluated, besides the answers accuracy, their presentation, the use of the language and the maturity level of the student in the using of methodologies, methods and technics in the designing of an Information System (low complexity).|
