new approach, Complete Systems Analysis teaches everything you need to
know about analyzing systems: the methods, the models, the techniques, and more.
definitive text on modern systems analysis techniques is combined with an extensive
case study to give readers hands-on experience in completing an actual analysis
Readers proceed through each step of a full-scale analysis project,
analyzing the complex requirements of a television station's airtime programming
department. Each phase of the case study and each exercise in the textbook section
is thoroughly explained in separate review and answer sections.
Trail Guide systeminspired by the difficulty levels marked
on ski trailsencourages readers to follow a sequence that suits their skill
level. Beginners follow the full trail while experienced analysts fill in gaps
in their training, refresh their understanding of key concepts, and practice their
skills. Managers review key concepts but can skip the detailed work with models.
book shows how analysis is used for object-oriented implementation, and how event-response
data flow models and entity-relationship data models are complementary, not competing,
Complete Systems Analysis adapts to the reader's needs and
provides an appropriate learning path for the beginner, with a more direct route
for experienced analysts wanting to make better use of today's techniques. Since
its first publication in 1994 as a two-volume set in hardcover, this highly acclaimed
textreleased in 1998 as a single softcover volumehas served as a course
text in classes throughout the world.
