There is a myriad of different methodologies for transforming real-world scenarios into information system models. Moreover, this transformation process is critical not only for developing a successful information system, but also for helping users optimize their work and make their organizations more efficient. Tabular Application Development for Information Systems describes the workings and utility of Tabular Application Development (TAD) as an object-oriented methodology that uses tables to model the real world. Essentially, TAD entails collecting information about a real-world situation into tables, identifying and implementing changes by analyzingthe tabularized content, and then using the data gathered in the changed tables to develop the organization's information system. Given that tables can be easily surveyed and modified, analysts can locate almost immediately any information about business processes, work processes, activities, tasks, or events. In addition, the user can confidently proceed without misunderstandings and can quickly rectify any mistake or problem. Topics and features:*TAD's advantages over UML methodology in terms of simplicity, utility for either small or large information systems, and independence from the analyst*presents the subject of business process reengineering and information systems development from a new perspective*thorough descriptions of three case-study applications of TAD*briefly introduces all key object-oriented concepts*segments the TAD methodology into six clearly defined phases This book offers an essential exposition on the TAD method for information systems development and design. Practitioners and professionals in information science, computer science, and business process reengineering will find the work a highly useful resource when using TAD for rapid, efficient software development.
