Analysis within the Systems Development Life-Cycle: Book 1, Data Analysis—The Deliverables provides a comprehensive treatment of data analysis within the systems development life-cycle and all the deliverables that need to be collected in analysis. The purpose of deliverables is explained and a number of alternative ways of collecting them are discussed. This book is comprised of five chapters and begins with an overview of what ""analysis"" actually means, with particular reference to tasks such as hardware planning and software evaluation and where they fit into the overall cycle. The next chapter introduces the main concepts that will be used throughout the rest of the book, along with the main diagrammatic techniques that will be used to represent the deliverables. The discussion then turns to important categories of concept; what facts to collect about entity types; what facts to collect about attribute types; and the deliverables of the data design part of the systems development cycle. The final chapter summarizes all the deliverables and puts them into the context of the systems development cycle by describing the ""systems engine""—the ""meta-model"" of the systems development life-cycle. This monograph will be of interest to systems analysts and designers.
