Module content
Lectures:

Organization of IT project, because of its extraordinary specificity is a key issue in the process of design in the domain of computer science. The goal of the subject is to present students, elements of IT design process and its management issues, their relations, activities performed and artifacts produced. Typical widespread methods, especially IT systems development models and production methodologies (eg. RUP, MSF) based on them are shown. Also adaptative ones (eg. principles of Agile, TDD, XP, Scrum) and the so-called organizational ones (as eg. CMMI, ITL, COBIT) are described.

Laboratory classes:

Exercises and discussion on preliminary phases of IT projects: estimation of cost, time. Methods of presentation of work schedule – diagrams. Completion of the project team and its issues. Team structure: roles in the team. Managerial decisions. Choice of the methodology. Planned sequence of works, artifacts delivered. Comparison of methodologies. Practical application of methods and tools to own IT projects.

Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

1.To obtain the positive final mark, it is necessary to have positive grades from all the laboratory excercises and an exam.

2.The arithmetic average (av) from all the meetings and excercises as well as an exam is calculated.

3.The final grade is fixed on the basis of the following dependency:
if av>4.75 then OK:=5.0 else
if av>4.25 then OK:=4.5 else
if av>3.75 then OK:=4.0 else
if av>3.25 then OK:=3.5 else OK:=3

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Recommended completion of Software Engineering course, or Information Systems Design.
