Systems Analysis and Design with UML, 3rd Edition (0470074787) cover image
You can’t truly understand Systems Analysis and Design (SAD) by only reading about it; you have to do it. In Systems Analysis and Design, Third Edition, Dennis, Wixom, and Roth offer a hands-on approach to actually doing SAD. Building on their experience as professional systems analysts and award-winning teachers, these three authors capture the experience of actually developing and analyzing systems. They focus on the core set of skills that all analysts must possess––from gathering requirements and modeling business needs, to creating blueprints for how the system should be built.

  • Written in UML: The text takes a contemporary, object-oriented approach using UML.
  • Focus on doing SAD: The text builds on the applied approach of Dennis & Wixom's best-selling SAD text. After presenting the how and what of each major technique, the text guides students through practice problems and then invites them to use the technique in a project.
  • Rich examples of both success and failure: Concepts in Action boxes describe how real companies succeeded and failed in performing the activities in the chapters.
  • Project approach: Each chapter focuses on a different step in the Systems Development Life Cycle (SDLC) process. Topics are presented in the order in which they are encountered in a typical project.
  • Outstanding author team: Dennis and Wixom draw on their experience as professional systems analysts. Co-author, David Tegarden, an OO expert, has worked with OO for over a decade and is a recognized OO expert in the IS community.
  • A running case: This case threaded throughout the text helps students apply each concept they have learned.
