Structured Analysis & Design Training

Course#: WA1892

The Analysis portion presents the major Structured System Analysis tools used to improve the requirements definition / analysis activities of a project - Data Flow Diagrams, Data Dictionary, Processing Specifications, Data Structure Diagrams.  The Structured Analysis workshop sessions provide opportunities to practice the use of these major tools.  The design portion of the class discusses the use of (the major Structured System Design tool) the Structure Chart.  Two strategies are discussed for developing Structure Charts based on Data Flow Diagrams (Transaction- and Transform-Centered). Several quality standards are discussed for determining the "correctness" of a Structure Chart. A Structured Design workshop is used to practice developing Structure Charts; and determine of their "correctness".

What you will learn
 

After completing this course, the student should be able to:

  • Discuss how Structured Systems Analysis overcomes the shortcomings of the "classical" systems development
  • List the tools of Structured Analysis and describe their use
  • Develop Data Flow Diagrams and describe their components
  • Define different system components in the Data Dictionary
  • Document system needs in a Structured Specification
  • Revise and refine Structure Charts
  • List and describe the quality standards for Structure Charts
  • Determine Case Study quality using "Goodness" Criteria
