This textbook is designed for MIS majors Systems Analysis and Design course where the instructors’ favor an object-oriented approach. MIS departments are revising their curriculums and switching from traditional techniques to purely object-oriented techniques. Just as objects are changing the way people program individual applications, so to will it affect the way people design larger application systems.
This text will be the first to present an object-oriented methodology from the outset for beginning Systems Analysis and Design students. It is the first book to introduce object-oriented methods without relying on classical methods to introduce key concepts or without requiring students to know Java or C++. It will presume no knowledge whatsoever about process modeling or data modeling. The widely used UML notation (unified modeling language) will be used throughout the book for all diagrams and model renderings. The key benefit to this approach is that it makes the course easier to teach and learn since many students come to this course with limited backgrounds having only taken one introductory MIS course. Also, this approach is appealing because object-oriented methodology is widely used in industry.
