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.
