Features

For undergraduate systems analysis and design courses.

Kendall and Kendall's Systems Analysis and Design, 8e, is a human-centered book that concisely presents the latest systems development methods, tools, and techniques to students in an engaging and easy-to-understand manner.

The eighth edition highlights the latest advancements in the rapidly changing Information Systems field.

Flexible text organization.
The five major parts of the text can be varied and supplemented by using real-world projects, HyperCase experiences, or other materials available on the instructor's resource section of the Companion Website.
  • Part 1: Systems Analysis Fundamentals (Chapters 1-3) focuses on the basics of what an analyst does, how emerging information systems fit into organizations, ecommerce project management coverage, and how to manage a systems project using special software tools. Part 1 now includes introductions of the three main methodologies of the systems development life cycle (SDLC), expanded coverage of evaluating software and hardware, when to use COTS (commercial off the shelf software), and earlier, expanded material on creating the project charter.
  • Part 2: Information Requirements Analysis (Chapters 4-6) emphasizes the use of systematic and structured methodologies for performing information requirements analysis. The information in these chapters enables students to understand the approach to systems development.
  • Part 3: The Analysis Process (Chapters 7-10) details the analysis process, and builds on the previous two parts to move students into analysis of data flows as well as structured and semi-structured decisions. 
  • Part 4: The Essentials of Design (Chapters 11-15) covers designing output, the design of web-based forms, relations between output method and content, the effect of output on users, and designing good forms and screens. 
  • Part 5: Quality Assurance and Implementation (Chapters 15-16) focuses on designing accurate data entry procedures and includes material on managing the supply chain through the effective design of business-to-business (B2B) ecommerce.
Design Features help students easily grasp the subject matter.
  • Conceptual Diagrams introduce system analyst tools through called-out functions and color-coding.
  • Computer Displays demonstrate software features using actual software screen shots.
  • Paper Forms show input and output design as well as the design of questionnaires. Blue ink identifies information filled in by users.
  • Tables organize and classify text and numbers in an easy-to-read format.

Pedagogical Features
  • Learning Objectives
  • Summaries
  • Keywords and Phrases
  • Review Questions
  • Problems
  • Group Projects
  • Updated! Consulting Opportunities. More than 60 minicases throughout the book address relevant and emerging topics that have arisen in the field, including designing systems from an HCI perspective, ecommerce applications for the Web, COTS software, and using UML to model information systems from an object-oriented perspective. Consulting Opportunities can be used for stimulating in-class discussions, or assigned as homework or take-home exam questions.
  • New! Mac Appeal feature columns. These columns update students on innovative design software available on the Mac.
  • Updated! HyperCase Experiences.  New scenarios, graphics, and problems to accompany HyperCase version 2.8 are incorporated in this edition. HyperCase 2.8 is Web-based, interactive software that presents an organization called Maple Ridge Engineering (MRE) in a colorful, three-dimensional graphics environment. With HyperCase, students become immediately immersed in organizational life; they can interview people, observe office environments, analyze their prototypes, and review the documentation of their existing systems. With HyperCase, professors have exciting multimedia material for the systems analysis and design class.
  • Updated! CPU Case Episodes. The CPU case runs throughout the text, taking students through all phases of the systems development life cycle. Students can use Microsoft Access, Microsoft Visio, or Visible Analyst to complete new assignments.

New to this Edition

The eighth edition of Kendall & Kendall Systems Analysis and Design includes substantial changes mandated by the rapid changes in the IS field in the last three years, and included as a response to the input of adopters, students, and reviewers. Many new and updated features are integrated throughout. In particular:

Early integration of SLDC, agile approaches, and object-oriented systems analysis and design with the UML. Students will gain practical experience with three of the latest and most widely used techniques in industry today: SDLC, agile approaches, and object-oriented systems analysis and design with UML, along with reasons and situations for when to use them (Chapter 1)

Expanded coverage of commercial off the shelf software (COTS) due to their increasing use in organizations (Chapter 3)

Updated! HyperCase Experiences.  New scenarios, graphics, and problems to accompany HyperCase version 2.8 are incorporated in this edition. HyperCase 2.8 is Web-based, interactive software that presents an organization called Maple Ridge Engineering (MRE) in a colorful, three-dimensional graphics environment. With HyperCase, students become immediately immersed in organizational life; they can interview people, observe office environments, analyze their prototypes, and review the documentation of their existing systems. With HyperCase, professors have exciting multimedia material for the systems analysis and design class.

Consulting Opportunities can be used for stimulating in-class discussions, or assigned as homework or take-home exam questions.

Strengthened Project Management by introducing the Project Charter early in the process (Chapter 3)
. Chapter 3 introduces expanded material on creating the project charter and introduces writing the systems proposal early in the process, no matter what method of analysis and design has been chosen.

Early introduction of how to prepare the systems proposal (Chapter 3). Chapter 3 guides students in professionally writing and presenting an effective systems proposal, incorporating figures and graphs to communicate with users.

Reorganized, updated, and strengthened the chapter on agile methods (Chapter 6). This chapter is innovative in its treatment of prototyping as another data gathering technique that enables the analyst to solve the right problem by getting users involved from the start. Agile approaches have their roots in prototyping, so this chapter begins with prototyping to provide a proper context for understanding, and then takes up the agile approach. The values and principles, activities, resources, practices, processes, and tools associated with agile methodologies are presented. This chapter also includes material on rapid application development (RAD) for human information requirements gathering and interface design.

Object-oriented analysis and design is expanded and featured in the center of the text so it can be more easily incorporated into term projects (Chapter 10). This chapter includes an in-depth section on using unified modeling language (UML). There is detailed coverage of the use case model, creating the class model diagram with UML, sequence diagrams, creating gen/spec diagrams, use case scenarios, and activity diagrams.

New object-oriented analysis and design problems included in the CPU Episode (Chapter 10).

Improvements to the Quality Assurance and Implementation chapter include new coverage of cloud computing and a new section on service-oriented architecture (SOA) (Chapter 16)
.
This chapter helps students understand how SOA and cloud computing are changing the nature of information systems design.
