Systems Modelling Techniques Practitioner

This certificate examines candidates on their modelling skills and is primarily concerned with modelling systems from a variety of perspectives. It requires candidates to construct three main types of model reflecting these individual perspectives and to describe the interactions between them.

The syllabus is constructed so that the examination can reflect different modelling notations and hence does not go into the detail of any one specific approach. This allows a choice of structured, object oriented or agile modelling approaches to be examined.

This certification also counts towards the Diploma in Business Analysis and the Diploma in Systems Development.

What are the learning outcomes?

The candidate should be able to:

Justify the need for IT system modelling and modelling techniques.
Explain why it is important to model IT system requirements from different perspectives.
Develop models of system functionality. These models should be either process models with supporting process descriptions or use case diagrams with supporting use case descriptions.
Develop models of system data. These models should be either entity relationship models or analysis class models, both with supporting descriptions.
Develop a dynamic model. This model should be either an entity life history showing the effect of events on an entity or a sequence diagram showing the realisation of a use case.
Evaluate selected models against business objectives and system requirements.
Appreciate how the selected models inter-relate with each other.
Describe how the products of analysis feed into the design and development of a system.
For further information please read the syllabus

Who is it aimed at?

This certification is suitable for those who are engaged in any aspect of systems modelling.

Entry Requirements:

There are no specific pre-requisites for entry to the examination, however candidates should be suitably prepared and possess the appropriate skills and knowledge to fulfil the objectives above.
