Course detail

Design of Control Systems

FSI-VNSAcad. year: 2020/2021

The course is concerned with the following topics: Structure and design of modern enterprise information systems and CIM Systems. Classification, components, architecture and functions of information systems. Different software life cycles, structure design methods, object oriented design methods. Architecture and function CASE products. Principles, functions and using of computer aided software products. The problems of software quality (ISO 25000), capability maturity process model CMM, V-testing model and ISO 9000 standards. Some mathematical methods of project management (CPM, PERT, EVM, MTA etc.)and risk project control are described.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

The course is taught through lectures explaining the basic principles and theory of the discipline. Exercises are focused on practical topics presented in lectures.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Graded course-unit credit requirements: working out a seminar work - Control System Design

Course curriculum

Not applicable.

Work placements

Not applicable.


The course objective is to make students familiar with with the definition, purpose and different types control and information systems and the description of control and information systems analysis and design including object oriented design. Students will understand the principles of CASE products and quality of software and a mathematical method of modern project management will be described to them.
