Abstract

The development of information systems (IS) emerges from the need for more expressive designs that could work well in diverse situations. Over the years, several methodologies have been proposed that offer tangible alternatives that capture solutions to the problems in context, and to a limited degree for those that could potentially occur in time. This paper describes the advantages and pitfalls within each of the known approaches and the reasons why no single methodology has gained general acceptance. Efforts to integrate these approaches often requires one to determine the right mix of features (Lyytinen, 1987). A case study of a large manufacturing organization from the midwest is presented and a new methodology that attempts to blend in pertinent features of the existing models of IS design is proposed
