How to Deploy a Software Update to a Computer instead of a Collection.

I would like to know if there is a way in SCCM to deploy an update directly to a computer instead of a collection.

In our environment , we have 3rd Party Patch Management, that will be replaced by SCCM for Budget reason.
with 3rd part product, the Analyst will select the Updates relevant to a specific computer and deploy the updates and select "Restart" the computer after Updates are done installing, even if they do not require restart..
So everything is manual as we have an Analyst who works out of business hours.

In SCCM, I can not find something similar to that...it seems like the Analyst will have to create a collection for every single computer (Since each computer maintenance window has different time) and deploy the updates, and if the Update does not require the reboot, then the computer will not be rebooted...which is not what the IT Dept policy says....
At work, they require Reboot of every computer after it is updated , even when it does not have any update Required, Analyst should reboot the computer.

How can I shape up this task , so that it can be the same as the task done with 3rd Party product.

Thank you
