An Introduction to Systems Analysis Techniques

Second Edition

Mark Lejk and David Deeks

Suitable for a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, this book lays a firm foundation in analysis, seeking to equip students for a real working environment. It will also help seasoned professionals refresh their skills.

Written by authors with longstanding experience in teaching systems analysis techniques to students and professionals, the material in this book is presented in an easy, friendly and accessible style. Coverage of both structured and object-oriented techniques is included. The structured techniques include spray and tree diagrams, data flow diagrams, entity models, normalisation and entity life histories. The object-oriented techniques include class diagrams and use cases.

The approach throughout is to introduce each technique by the use of step-by-step worked examples, followed by exercises related to the reader’s experience.

The subject of systems analysis is set in a wider context, emphasising the business-oriented approach.

This second edition also includes the first published introduction to the Process Improvement for Strategic Objectives (PISO™) method for business re-engineering – developed at the University of Sunderland and gaining strong support in a wide range of private and public sector organisations.

    Format: Paperback
    This is an excellent book to grasp the basic concepts of SSADM such as dataflow diagrams, entity relationship modeling and normalization. The two authors, Mr. M Ledjk and Mr. D Deeks have done a splendid job of simplifying SSADM concepts, that sometimes can be very confusing. I have also had the pleasure of being taught by these two University Lecturers and I know how very professional they are.

    Format: Paperback
    This book is a practical book which takes the reader through various structured analysis techniques. Throughout the book there are lots of examples which give the book depth. The book adheres to SSADM notation. Towards the end of the book object oriented analysis is also covered. This is a very useful text for students studying systems analysis on Undergraduate and Post Graduate courses and for IS practioners. I can recommend this book.

    3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. S. E. Marchant on 19 Sept. 2003
    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    I had the privilege of being taught Systems Analysis by David Deeks at the University of Sunderland (2002-2003). This book not only explains Systems Analysis techniques in a very easy to understand manner but it actually makes understanding it totally enjoyable! It was not daunting to me in any way (which is what I expected) and was absolutley invaluable as not only a learning tool but as a reference guide too. It also includes a major section on Piso which proved extremely interesting.
    I can only recommend that this is THE book for anyone studying Systems Analysis Techniques, and I hope that you get the same satisfaction out of it that I did.

    Format: Paperback
    I can honestly say that the text can be the a good intrduction to the art of systems analysis and design.
    Studying under both authors at the university of sunderland, and being privvy to its content before this work was published. even then you knew that the work would be required reading for those who may find the subject difficult to get a handle on. The book also covers more advanced topic such as entity life histories quite well.
    However it would have been better if it provided more information of other knowledge elicitation techiniques such as soft systems and business analysis
