Joint application design: how to design quality systems in 40% less time
This book explains how to use the joint application design (JAD) methodology for designing computer systems. The advantages of using JAD include a dramatic shortening of the time it takes to get a business application from user request to the start of programming. Equally important, JAD improves the quality of systems design by focusing on the up-front portion of the development cycle, thus reducing the likelihood of errors that are expensive to correct later on. This guide includes an actual case study and provides techniques for designing applications systems, computer-assisted software engineering (CASE) techniques, and useful checklists, workplans, sample agendas and documentation.
