The 1986 and 1990 DPMA model curricula both include a Systems Project course (CIS/86-8 and IS-8). This course places emphasis on systems theory and user requirement- based problem solving. This paper describes the development of the Systems Project course. Initially, it addresses the definition of the course, including the selection of projects, the creation of teams, development and tracking of a project plan, the analysis and design of the system, and the completion of the project. It then discusses the software tools needed and the major problems that are encountered in teaching the Systems Project course. If developed and taught well, the Systems Projects course may very well be the most important class any information systems student could take.
