9780321204646: Requirements Analysis and System Design

"Requirements Analysis & System Design with CD is" suitable for both computer science and informations systems curricula, as well as practitioners working on OO software projects (for whom the author runs regular training courses). Software development takes place in three stages: analysis, design and programming. This second edition describes the methods and techniques used in the first two of these stages, emphasising object-oriented techniques that can be applied to the development of large-scale applications and capitalising on the popularity of the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the latest software production technologies. The text teaches by example throughout. Separate chapters are dedicated to a guided tutorial in analysis and in design. Four application areas are discussed to help explain independent topics, and these build into running case studies through the book. A fifth application is described in end-of-chapter exercises and can be used to formulate student assignments or specifications for a larger project. Throughout, the principles, methods and techniques of good analysis and design are covered.Design is not treated as simply a transformation from good analysis, but as a complex "value-added" mapping of models that can result in a successful implementation. The difficulties and intricacies of large-scale OO development are acknowledged and the reader is given a balanced blend of practical explanation and theoretical insight.

From the Back Cover:

Object-oriented analysis and design/UML/Enterprise information systems

From reviews of the first edition:

"Students are doing much better in their assignments than the previous year when a different textbook was used." Jian Yang, Tilburg University, The Netherlands

"A much more realistic taste of what design is really about than most other textbooks." Karl Cox, Bournemouth University, UK

"Brilliant - buy it!" Chas Newport, System Developer, Invokon Ltd, UK

Do you want to design cutting-edge enterprise information systems? Do you want to learn the principles, methods and techniques behind successful analysis and design and be able to put this theory into practice? The second edition of this best-selling book will guide you through this process, helping you deal with the challenges involved, to develop large-scale object-oriented systems in an iterative and incremental way. The approach, further built on in this new edition, is distinctive because it:

  • relates theory to reality, with practical problems and limitations that would have to be addressed in the real world;
  • pays special attention to the design phase, acknowledging the difficulties and intricacies of large-scale system development; and
  • provides an enormous number of non-trivial examples and exercises.

The case studies and tutorials that will help you learn by example have been taken from the following varied application domains: online shopping, advertising expenditure, contact management, time logging, telemarketing, university enrolment and video store. Each has its own unique features and educational benefits.

The second edition has been substantially updated, broadening the coverage and ensuring the book is up-to-date in the technology-influenced area of systems development. Key changes from the last edition are:

  • use of UML 2.0 and occasional use of Java code to further explain the meaning of more complex UML models;
  • a "crash course" on object technology and object modeling, following requirements analysis and prior to requirements specifications with UML;
  • a "crash course" on system architecture and program design prior to the detailed discussion about distributed client/server system design;
  • a new discussion about user interface design with user experience (UX) storyboards and discussing the mapping between business objects and relational databases; and
  • significant expansion of the guided tutorial on online shopping, making this a separate chapter for review and reinforcement at the end of the book.

Whether you are a student on a computer science or information systems course, or someone working in industry wanting up-to-date practical help based on a sound theoretical footing, this book will be of lasting benefit to you.
