Description

Functional and Object Oriented Analysis and Design: An Integrated Methodology teaches students of information systems, software engineering, computer science, and related areas how to analyze and design information systems using the FOOM methodology. FOOM combines the object-oriented approach and the functional (process-oriented) approach. It makes a clear distinction between the analysis and design phases, and enables a smooth transition from the former to the latter.

The FOOM methodology is very well structured, providing step-by-step guidelines on what to do and how to do each of the analysis and design activities. Many examples make the learning and utilization of the methodology easy.

Reviews and Testimonials

A new approach and a new way of looking at systems analysis and design. It has implications for both academics and practitioners.
