This book was written not only for those wishing to specialize in computer science but for the person who has an interest in the software development process whether as an accountant, manager or client. It follows the development of a system from the client's initial vague idea through a series of transitional stages to the completed software product. The process is illustrated throughout with a case study - the Just a Line Mail Order system. The authors try to combine theoretical and practical angles on both traditional structured analysis techniques with more recent approaches - such as CASE tools and formal notations.

This edition builds on the success of the first, incorporating suggestions and comments from a wide variety of readers. It includes new chapters on requirements engineering and object-oriented development, together with a substantially increased set of exercises on modelling techniques. Written in a clear, friENDly style, this book is aimed at first-and second-year computer science undergraduates, in areas such as computer science, information systems or business studies, who are studying systems analysis or software engineering. It will also appeal to computer professionals and anyone who has an interest in the system development process: Special features include: Written in a clear, friENDly style that appeals to non-specialists as well as to computer professionals; A toolbox approach is adopted, rather than a rigid methodology; Provides a simple example of the step-by-step development of a small case study and a widely accepted set of modelling techniques; It is packed full of examples and exercises to aid the learning process.
