Product Description

From the Back Cover

Practical Business Systems Development Using SSADM describes the analysis and design of information systems using a structured methodology, in this case the Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method, or SSADM.

Reviews of the previous edition:

"The main strength of the book is its clear and comprehensive introduction to the SSADM standard. The book will continue to be a very important standard text for the foreseeable future."

John Veasey

University of Glamorgan

"I have used various editions of this book for some years now and found that the students like it and thus use it."

Maurice Colmer

Southampton Institute

This new edition builds on the strengths of the previous editions, and develops the focus on practical learning with more extensive exercises, more tips on applications, advice on tools outside of the scope of SSADM and information on other information systems development methods.

The third edition of Practical Business Systems Development Using SSADM:
  • includes a fully worked case study, establishing the correct application of the method
  • provides practical guidance in adapting SSADM to the individual circumstances of a project
  • features learning objectives, tips boxes and margin notes for each chapter
  • provides information boxes on advanced topics and techniques outside of SSADM
  • incorporates an extensive range of exercises and further case studies
  • includes addresses of support agencies for advice on SSADM usage
  • is supported by a strong supplements package including a website with lecture slides, full solutions to all exercises, supplementary exercises, and more guidance in SSADM techniques; and a downloadable lecturer’s guide with examination-style questions

This book has been written to appeal both to students with no previous knowledge of systems analysis and design and to practicing analysts. The skills acquired in learning SSADM can be applied to virtually any information systems development, as many of the techniques can be mapped to other standard methods and approaches. It is ideal for those studying at HND, BSc and MSc level, and for those studying for the Information Systems Examining Board certificates in SSADM.

Format: Paperback
I would say it was a very helpful book for me when I was in the Uni. It not only presents the explanation in theory also gives the readers cases toanalyze.
